Attracted to those gorgeous pots of loose, shimmery makeup, but don't have the slightest idea how to use them? You’re not alone. We checked in with Christina Choi, a makeup artist with Bare Escentuals, for some simple pointers.
> on eyes Dip the tip of a damp, flat eye makeup brush into the pot, then use it to line lids. We like Prestige Shimmering Trios Mineral Eyeshadow Dust ($12; at drugstores), above.
> on lips Pat color onto the center of your lips with your fingertip, then top with clear gloss for a sheer, slightly iridescent tint. Try Colorlisicious Pro Pigments ($7; urbanapothecary.com).
> in hair Create stunning temporary highlights by blending a dime-size amount of makeup and a dollop of hair gel in your palm; spread through damp hair. We like Bare Escentuals BareMinerals Extreme Glimmers ($32; sephora.com).
