If we had a rupee for each time someone we know got engaged or married off late, we’d be rich enough to own every beauty product on our wishlist. *Sigh* I kid, of course. On a serious note, wedding bells seem to be ringing all around us and we couldn’t be more delighted. Synonymous with celebrations, this season calls for all things sparkle and shimmer, no? Especially makeup, Duh!
Like most of you, I shy away from anything glittery throughout the year. Like hello? Glittery eyes for lunch, really? *cue eye roll* But, weddings are the most perfect excuse to get out the glimmer that’s been gathering dust at the back of your vanity. I know I’ve been dying to experiment with a truckload of glitter since I don’t usually get to. Whether it’s your BFF’s sangeet or your colleague’s snazzy reception, we’ve got every gleaming need of yours covered!
Pixi Beauty's Glitter-y Eye Quad in Gold Lava
This is officially the most glittery product I might’ve ever used! While it may seem a tad bit over-the-top for using otherwise, it’s a perfect companion for wedding galas. Four shining shades that will have your eyes looking like the centre of attention. Use it as a topper for your eyeshadow or by itself. Infused with Vitamin E & castor oil, your eyes remain nourished and hydrated.

Anastasia Beverly Hills' Honey Diamond Gloss
Nothing quite says glitter like a good ol’ lip gloss does, no? With glosses making a comeback from the ’90s and ’00s, I happen to have rekindled my obsession with them all over again. This lip gloss from Anastasia Beverly Hills is a literal burst of glitter and shine. I love how I can layer it on my bare lips and use it as a topper for an extra oomph too.
