How to Make Your Eyebrows Sparkle for the Holidays

'Tis the season for all things shiny and sparkly, from tinsel on the trees to the sequins on gaudy Christmas sweaters. Besides thigh-high boots, my favorite winter look is a pair of extremely glittered eyebrows. While they're not strictly holiday-esque, glitter brows seem as in vogue during this time as faux fur coats. The best thing is it's so easy to pull off, and the results are nothing short of fabulous. Here are my best tips on how to accentuate those peepers and create a fun, festive look for whatever occasion:

DO your eye makeup beforehand, and make sure to highlight underneath the brow.

DON'T use craft-store glitter (i.e., what you'd get at Michaels, JoAnn Fabrics, et al.), as it could easily fall into your eye and cause pain and irritation. Most makeup stores carry wearable glitter made specifically for being worn on the skin.

DO get a friend to help you apply the glitter to your brows, especially if you're a newbie. It's a messy process, so having someone to press the product on your face while you lean back is the best possible method.

DON'T think you need to go big or go home with your glitter brows. If you're not up for the boldness (or effort) of a completely covered eyebrow, a subtle, light application of glitter will still make them shimmer.

DO mix and match colors!

DON'T use your normal eye-makeup brushes for this, as you'll never be able to get all the glitter off, even if you wash your brushes regularly. I'm saying this from experience!

DO use hair gel or false-eyelash glue as an adhesive. This hack comes courtesy of one of my more makeup-savvy friends.

Now, go forth, and make those brows shine and sparkle!
