Glitter Everywhere! Meet One of This Season's Hottest Trends

19

VS LotionOne of this season’s hottest trends is glitter, everywhere, especially in makeup, but also, all over the body.  Allure magazine asserts that glitter will become your new best friend this season!  In fact, Huda Kattan, the founder of Huda Beauty, had the following to say about the glitter trend, “It’s going to be less of a trend and more of a necessity. It’s just something that every woman is going to be getting into in some way, shape, or form. We see it on nails and hair on social media, but it’s going to make its way to the average woman, because I see normal women who don’t usually play with makeup squealing when they see glitter.” (If you would like to read more about Allure‘s hottest trend predictions, click here for the full article).

I chose to showcase the above-pictured Victoria’s Secret Shimmer Lotion because it is not so overtly “glittery”.  While full-on glitter may be on trend right now, it may be too much for everyday life.  However, these lotions from Victoria’s Secret strike that perfect balance between glitter and glow.  It’s great for both the office and a night out.  You can choose how much that you want to apply on your skin.  As you can see, they come in a variety of scents.  I chose these three:  Amber Romance, Pure Seduction, and Love Spell.  All of the various scents were wonderful, these were just the ones that appealed to me most.

Regardless of how you apply this season’s glitter trend (and if you do), I hope that you do it in a way that fits you best.  I am hoping that I present a modified version of the glitter trend so that everyone may feel like that can participate in this fun trend without being too over the top (if that’s not your style).

Olay Products

When I was a little girl, both of my grandmothers told me to that it was very important for my skin that I stay out of the sun.  I think that their advice must have stuck because I’ve heeded it all of my life.  My maternal grandmother used Olay products and urged me to do the same.  Although she only had a few products, I have several and I love them all.  Olay isn’t the only brand that I use, but it’s a brand that I’ve used consistently for most of my life.  I credit my grandmothers for setting me on the right path for terrific skincare.

Here are the Olay products that I currently use:

  1. Olay Regenerist Regenerating Serum
  2. Olay Regenerist Regenerating Cream Cleanser
  3. Olay Regenerist Eye Cream
  4. Olay Professional ProX Wrinkle Smoothing Cream
  5. Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream Moisturizer
  6. Olay Regenerist Night Recovery Cream
  7. Olay Eyelash Moisturizer
