The dividing line between shimmer and glitter is seemingly modest, but boy, is there a gigantic difference between the two (let’s just say glitter is kind of like shimmer’s trampy sister). There’s a time and a place for everything, but when it comes to your makeup this summer, subtle shimmer is the way to go: it reflects light and imparts a dreamy, ethereal glow that can’t quite be traced, completely devoid of the garish “1980s prom in Utah” effect glitter is infamous for. A touch of incandescence restricted to one area of the face not only brightens but also draws the eye away from imperfections, so nobody has to know about the dark shadow under your eyes or the zit on your chin, because look, you’re shimmering, and it’s so pretty! Also, bonus: men don’t really know about this stuff, so when they see you glistening all over the place they just think you’re magic. What more could you ever want than for people to think you’re magic? That’s what I thought.
When it comes to purses, the sensible thing to do is to buy a neutral bag that goes with everything, but hey, who says bright florals aren’t a neutral? Okay, okay, maybe these purses aren’t the most versatile or understated, but they will definitely provide a sartorial exclamation point for your outfit. Try mixing them with other prints like stripes or polka dots for a trendy summer look. Click through to check out 10 of our favorite floral purses…

Plus, she’s the face of Christian Dior and gone through an incredible series of stunning Dior gowns and looks. Just this week, in fact, she was the first to wear a dress from Raf Simon’s newest Dior collection on the red carpet. So she’s gorgeous and brand loyal, too.
