Polly Blitzer of Beauty Blitz is our go-to lady for all things lovely, so we couldn’t wait to get her advice on adding a little glitz to our New Year’s Eve look. “For festive events like New Year’s Eve,” Polly told us, “I like to incorporate touches of glint in unexpected ways.” So what products does she use to create sparkling accents? See her advice below to find out!

I’m planning to coat my nail in a glitter gradient. It works with any shade. I brush a clear glitter polish over the top half of each nail, then another coat close to the tip. I use either Essie in As Gold As It Gets, a gold lamé top coat or Deborah Lippmann Glitter Nail Color in Superstar, a bronze sparkle.

I’m planning to deck my hair with chic hair pins from Jennifer Behr. She handcrafts the most intricate, beautiful hair accessories with crystals, lace and leather. And she can pull off a gigantic red hair flower like nobody else. I’m going to wear loose waves and tuck a piece of hair behind one ear using Jennifer Behr Petite Star Bobby Pin Set.
Eyes: To jazz up my usual brown smoky eyes with a subtle hint of glint, I’ll rim my lower lashlines with Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Liner in Baked. It makes your gaze twinkle without looking too theatrical.
Smile: Did you know that saying “Cheese” for photos actually produces an artificial-looking smile? Instead, say “Money.” Seriously! I’ll be brightening my teeth right before I head out with my favorite smile savior: Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips. They lift any evidence of my espresso habit!

  • Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner
    All the glitz of glam rock (without the spandex or bad hair). Urban Decay's water-based, buildable liner contains super-fine glitter in a clear base that dries down quickly and Really stays put. Wear Heavy Metal alone, apply it over Urban Decay's legendary Eyeshadow or layer two shades together for a more intense glam-rock effect. The glitter is suspended in a gel, so it won't separate in the bottle (which means you don't need to shake the bottle like you do with watery formulas). Peach and cucumber extract condition the skin, while carrot extract smooths and softens. The precise, thin-tipped brush makes it easy to create fine, glittery lines. Want more sparkle? Use the side of the brush to sweep sparkle all over your lids. Or, for an even bolder, jewel-encrusted look, remove the wiper (the little piece that controls how much product comes out of the bottle) and tap on Heavy Metal with your fingers.
