There’s no better time than now to add glitz and glitter to your beauty routine. Between holiday parties and New Year’s Eve, you’re guaranteed to have plenty of festive opportunities — and these simple tricks will have you sparkling in no time (almost literally).

1. Heavy Highlight
A super-highlighted look may not work for every day, but it’s perfect for the holiday season — and your favorite eyeshadow is all you need.

Just after applying your foundation, tap your go-to champagne or gold eyeshadow on your cheekbones, brow bones, and the bridge of your nose to amp up your glow to twinkle-light levels. (We used Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Metal in “Barely Branded”.)

2. Glitzy Tips
Give your week-old manicure a pick-me-up by adding gold decals — they’ll hide chips and score you tons of compliments.

Cut up any gold nail decals, apply them directly on top of your already-painted nails, and layer with topcoat. (We used Tattify So Fancy Nail Tattoos by Miss Pop.)

3. Gold Strands
Remember those gold-foil temporary tattoos you wore all summer? Turns out, they also exist for your hair — and it’s a trend that even Kylie Jenner is obsessed with.

Peel off the plastic layer and apply face-down onto to your hair like you would a normal temporary tattoo, dabbing it with a damp paper towel. (We used Scunci hair and body tattoos.)
