8 Products to Help You Shine This Holiday Season
You don't need to have the Midas (or a makeup artist's) touch to dazzle at your next holiday party.

Givenchy Le Prisme Mono Eyeshadow in Or Céleste
Inside this tiny eyeshadow compact you'll find a rich gold shade in four finishes: matte, pearly, iridescent and glittery. Mix them all together, wear each individually or use the various textures on different areas. (We like the matte shade on our brow bone, the shimmer on our lids, and just a touch of the sparkle in our inner corners.)

Clé de Peau Beauté Extra Rich Lipstick in T8
Finely milled gold shimmer adds subtle sparkle to this bronze-y nude shade—without making lips look frosted. And the chiseled edges of this faceted bullet make for precise application.

Chanel Liquid Eye Lines in Or
Rim your eyelids with this dazzling shade of liquid liner (instead of basic black or brown), then add two coats of mascara for holiday-party eyes. The pale gold shade makes mistakes harder to spot if you have trouble drawing a precise line.
CND Sheer 24K Sparkle
Amp up your everyday manicure by adding a layer of this gold glimmer top coat. It makes fingertips look festive but won't leave nails rough to the touch like other glitter polishes we've tried.
Nars Lip Gloss in Albatross
Apply this sheer, pearly gloss to the center of your bare lips or over lipstick. Gold flecks catch the light and create the illusion of fullness.
Olay Ribbons Body Wash
Shimmer powders can leave more glitter on your bathroom floor than on your body, but the mica particles in this creamy wash make skin look luminous—minus the mess. Use this before slipping into a strapless dress or skin-baring blouse. But if there's a man who shares your shower, warn him about its sparkly side effects. (The husband of one of our editors took this soap for a test drive one morning and showed up at his office looking very...radiant.)

Bobbi Brown Party Shimmer Brick
Swirl these metallic powders together and dust over your lids and cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose and above your cupid's bow to blur fine lines and wake up a dull complexion.
ModelCo Tan Gloss
This tinted self-tanner instantly gives pale legs and arms a streak-free bronze sheen and makes any areas you've missed easier to see. While the shimmer rinses off in the shower, the golden glow lasts for days.
