During Christian Dior’s Spring 2013 ready-to-wear fashion show, the clothes were not the only thing that dazzled. Models graced the runway with bright eye makeup featuring SWAROVSKI Crystals. Renowned makeup artist, Pat McGrath created the look by placing small crystals to the models’ eyelids with false eyelash glue. Us ladies over at Merchants Overseas wonder how long it took the models to remove the crystals once the show was over? Although we do admire the look!

Turning the pages of the December issue of InStyle made us giddy. The magazine featured crystal-adorned shoes, dresses, headbands and jewelry. ‘Tis the season to sparkle!
