5 TIPS OF FINISHING OFF A LOOK WITH GLITTER SHOES
Glitter shoes are such a closet darling and we just love how edgy they can make our looks. But to ensure we look our best, here is a guide:
1. Avoid a sparkle overload.
You don’t want to look all starry by wearing an all-sparkly look and finishing off with glitter shoes! A lot of embellishments make your look so heavy and loud. And cheap!
One thing I’ve noted from street style fashion enthusiast like Macy Stucke and Maria Vizuete is that they prefer minimalism as a way to make any look appear expensive, even if it already is.
So with this tip, go for plain looks or should I say, non-embellished outfits, that will be elevated by the touch of glitter from your glitter shoes. For example: you could start by saying NO to that gorgeous sequin gown in your wardrobe and those dangly diamond jewelry in your jewelry box. Instead, get those cute studs, that thin necklace and glitter shoes for your black or red dress.
But then again, if you feel like your confidence is way above the roof and you’d want to look all sparkly in sequin; then get a mini dress or a knee-length fitting dress that will give room for your shoe to shine. I love to keep a glitter shoe and a sequin dress in the same color family if I have to do the combination for a sleeker vibe unlike wearing multiple colors of sparkle.
2. Boost the sparkle with minimal jewelry.
We want the glitter shoes to stand out so what better way is there that wearing that cute thin necklace than that chunky one you have? Trust me, minimal jewelry will also make your look expensive.
“But Dalene, I want that statement necklace I got yesterday and that chunky bangle mom gave me!”
Well, we love attention but girl, say no to CHUNKY jewelry that will take away from your glitter shoes. Instead, wear those thin necklaces, that pair of diamond studs and that thin bangle! Good to go!
3. Tone down the glitz with natural makeup.
Girl! Makeup will kill you look if you get it wrong! Valentine’s is a season to look all beautiful but I remind you, stay away from too much bold makeup if you want your glitter shoes to stand out.
Trust me; a no-makeup makeup look will do it for you! You can just get some more gloss on your lips or perhaps a red lip color if you can’t stay away from color.

4. Bring along glamorous bag.
You don’t want to have that rusted shoulder bag you got from the store to a Valentine’s date! I mean, now you want to kill you glamorous glitter vibe with some ugly bag?
I advise you to get that gorgeous purse that absolutely matches the luxurious vibe of your glitter shoes. I love metallic purses and clutches which are just of the right size and luxe to complete the look.
5. Ensure your toe nails and feet are as cute.
Who lied to you that ladies with long thin legs have it all?
With great toe nails that are polished and properly filed, your open glitter shoes will thank you forever! Condition your toe nails and keep your feet moisturized with a good body lotion.
Honey, with those 5 tips you’ll be good to go with you glitter shoes. Even as you dress up with your beautiful evening dress, you’ll look terrific!

But remember; take care of your glitter shoes since many complain that the glitter can fall off.
So how do you take care of glitter shoes?
The easiest and best way to take care of this glitter fall-off is by using hair spray! I mean, always keep the glitter in place by spraying your hair spray directly on the glitter, and shake it lightly; if it doesn’t fall off, girl, you’re good to go!
Also remember not to rub your glitter shoes just on any surface because it can be rubbed off and as you wash it, just rinse it with cold water and after it air-dries, put some hair spray on it.
