For your eyes: Want a barely there touch of color on your peepers? Just sweep a bit of bronzer onto your lids for subtle definition. Added bonus? One less thing to carry in your cosmetic bag.

For on-the-go fragrance: Say sayonara to your number-one perfume leaking everywhere in transit. Spritz cotton swabs with the scent and drop them into a plastic sandwich bag for touch-ups during the day.

For your midday workout: Lunchtime yoga doesn’t always allow you to shower after. Freshen up with a paper-towel pat down and wipe your face. Then go beyond deodorant and dust yourself with body powder. Finish off with dry shampoo and a few brush strokes through your hair.

When it comes to makeup, I’m a less-is-more kind of girl. And while I’m certainly up for a little extra lip color and highlighter for the right occasion (hello, company holiday party), the thought of shellacking my eyelids with glitter is enough to send me hiding behind my shower curtain.

Glitter Eyes

But just when I thought sparkly lids had secured their place in the annals of 80s history, they’re making a comeback. And the new iteration is tasteful enough that I might just try it. According to the beauty buffs at New York Magazine (who got a little help from a pro), the trick to rocking glittery lids without looking silly is to stick with neutral tones like pink and beige – or other shades that complement your eye color – and blend a metal-foil-finish shadow with a regular shadow to keep from going overboard on sparkle. Seems simple enough, right? Here goes nothing.
