Our makeup mantra for the party season? “Walk into the room, and make the whole place shimmer.” Who doesn’t love a good glitter moment? Be it a pearlescent swathe on the lids or a light-reflecting shimmer, an extra twinge of radiance is all you need to dial up your glam. Don’t just take my word for it, though. The biggest pop culture moments in 2022, depicting the inventive usage of shimmer have inadvertently made ‘Glitter Glam’ quite the fixation amongst MZers. From the HBO hit series, Euphoria’s evocative glitter glam to Taylor Swift's latest MV -Bejeweled’s shimmer extravaganza, we’ve seen the triggering of a deluge of trends with countless spins and inventions.

So, if you too are looking to dazzle this holiday season, with glitter glam that assures people stop dead in their tracks, I have come bearing good news! After a bit of snooping around (all in good faith, fam) the Nykaa Marketing HQ, I have gathered information about the top-notch offerings that our editors have at their disposal. With long-lasting, infallible formulas like these, you too can slay at the numerous parties this season. Without any further ado, hear from these Beauty Editors- living in their bejeweled era. Grab these offerings and get your holiday drip on!

“ Perfect for a glitter novice like me. This water-infused shimmer pot delivers an off-the-charts radiance with just one easy swipe, sans the fallout. Plus, it’s vegan-friendly, gluten-free and cruelty-free. What’s not to love?”

“My fave go-to glitter palette is Pat McGrath’s Mothership IX Artistry Pallette Huetopian Dream. Just one swipe of this highly pigmented shade range lasts me all night without any fussy fallout or smudging. The colors are so vivid, vibrant and flatter all Indian skin tones. This is a must-have palette for both holiday and festive seasons, as any look or outfit is immediately elevated with that touch of glam shimmer.”

Lakshmi Nayar- Senior Beauty Editor

“My friends can certainly attest to my unwavering dedication to glitter. It’s true, I literally waltz into work with super shimmery lids on a regular Monday morning. And that brings me to why I specifically LOVE the holiday season because I get to maximize on my glitter-packed palettes and glosses on repeat (evil laugh). That said, my go-to holiday beauty product this year has got to be the iconic Mercury Retrograde Eyeshadow Palette By Huda Beauty. I’m obsessed with shades Ultraviolet and Mercury from the palette. I usually top it up with Supermoon Supermoon for that extra holiday pop.”

Sara Shah- Beauty Editor

“I love how the addition of just a touch of glitter can instantly elevate your look. While I usually incline towards eyeshadows, this Ciate lipstick is such a fun way to infuse glitter into your party makeup look! It's super pigmented with a delicious hint of shimmer that adds an extra bit of oopmh to my overall look!”

Richa Popat- Beauty Editor
