Here are Stephanie's holiday gift ideas for the beauty junkie.)
Glitter Eyeshadow: Apply a small amount of eyelash glue to lids, then tap on cosmetic-grade glitter (like Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, $15; occglitter.com) with a brush.
Glitter Lips: After applying a creamy lip color, pat the same glitter onto your lips, slowly building up coverage. Top your glitter lip with a clear gloss for extra wow-factor.
Glitter Hair: Make your own glitter gel using a mixture of fine and chunky glitters (like Martha Stewart Crafts Essential Colors Glitter Set, $18; amazon.com) and transparent gel in the scent of your choice (try Ampro Pro Styl Clear Ice Coconut Oil Styling Gel, $6; walmart.com). Mix small amounts of different colors of your choosing in a bowl, add gel to create a create a creamy paste, then apply to your skin and hair.
