Different Ways to Bedazzle Your Face for The Holidays

Curated by Claudia Shannon / Research Scientist / ishonest

In the past couple of years, we’ve seen face jewels, rhinestones, and pearls completely light up the beauty trend cycle. First, it was HBO’s Euphoria effect, created my makeup artist Doniella Davy who envisioned the show’s teens going to high school classes and homecoming wearing elaborate rhinestone and glitter designs that inspired everyone else to step up their sparkle game. Teens (and non-teens) all over began to stick gems around their eyes and experiment with colorful eyeshadow. Then, face bedazzling hit the high-fashion red carpet full force at this year’s Met Gala with Storm Reid, Amanda Gorman, Maisie Williams, and Ella Emhoff all partaking in the trend. Even fashion renegade Machine Gun Kelly covered his face in pearls for the 2021 VMAs, proving there are even more creative ways to wear face gems and jewels.

While the craft store can always be your go-to for finding rhinestones and glitter of all kinds, rising beauty brands like Simihaze are stepping up to the glimmering makeup demand by releasing their own stick-and-peel gem packs. Now, it’s never been easier to wear face jewels. What was once seen only fitting for a costume or a festival has trickled down to festive party makeup or even everyday makeup for the slightly more daring. If you’re feeling inspired by the bejeweled celebrity faces all over your social media feeds, here are five ways treat your face like an art project (in the best possible way).

Eyes are the obvious choice when it comes to where to place your face jewels. The clearest choice may be to use rhinestones in place of liquid liner, or you can up the ante. Take a note from Doniella Davy makeup artistry school and upgrade your winged eyeshadow with a crystal cut crease or outlining bold eye shadow.

Bullion Brows

You’ve heard of bleached brows but what about bedazzled brows? We love Sydney Sweeney’s under-eyebrow silver gems for the LA County Museum of Art gala, created by makeup artist Melissa Hernandez. For an easier take on the look, brands like TooD Beauty and About-Face have created products perfect for glamming up your eyebrows.
