Tony & Tina's "Cosmic Lights" glitter powder
is available at Sephora for $12.

You glow, girl

LAST holiday season, rhinestones were the rage, whether fastened to strands of hair, or punctuating eyelids. With year 2000 fast approaching, the focus is on the future and the high-tech gleam of silver. In makeup, all that glitters is the goal. The whole body can shine now that specks of light-reflecting materials are blended into products.

Glitter gets sophisticated this season, moving out of the teen realm into higher end makeup lines.

Dotsy Hopkins, assistant manager at Sephora at Ala Moana Center says all the makeup lines carried at the store have some sort of glitter product, ranging from body shimmer to eye liner and glitter eye pencils.

The Hard Candy line offers eyeliner for $17. Its hot seller is a silvery tone called Trailer Trash. "Shimmer," a body gel that can be used on the eyes, cheeks and chest areas is $12. Sephora sold out of Hard Candy's glitter mascara, at $16. Benefit shimmer "Showoffs" goes for $13. Bloom shimmer body gel, $12 comes in gold, silver and bronze tones. Tony & Tina's "Cosmic Lights," a glitter powder, costs $12.

Sephora also carries small Christmas gift packs the receiver can use to sparkle, along with fireworks, into the year 2000. Tony and Tina's Millennium Key glitter polish is $25; glitter nail polish and lipstick pack, also $25.

Hopkins says millennium mania "definitely has everything to do with the influx of glitter products we're seeing" and with women wanting to use them.

Hopkins says the hot holiday color is plum, and she invites people to explore Sephora's "glow library" and tester shelf.

Those on a budget will still be able to head to Longs Drugs for glitter products such as L.A. Girl lip gloss, $4.99. A glitter hair mascara by Color Spot is $5.99. Moonglows' glow-in-the-dark body glitter, $1.49, has tiny sequins shaped in stars and crescent moons in the gel .

But how do you apply the shiny stuff without looking like a disco ball? The way to avoid overkill is to focus on one feature, says Gerry Davenport Brown, a makeup artist with Paul Brown Salon and Day Spa at Ward Centre.

If eyes are the highlight, then go all out with a combination of glitter eyeliner and shadow, or mascara and tone down on the lips and cheeks. Or focus on the cheeks and go subtle on the eyes.

Body shimmer is not a favorite idea with her, because "if it's used all over the body, you end up looking like a glowing alien."

It's best to focus on a small area, like shoulders, neckline or near the outer corners of the eyes, she says.
