Sparkling touches aren’t just for holiday-inspired winter looks. With metallic shine a hot trend for the coming spring and summer seasons, shimmer is on everything from cocktail dresses to transitional jackets. But who says your clothes should have all the fun? Foil eyeliner is the latest way to add a bit of glitz to your face.
