Makeup shaped into pretty pebbles and pearls has been popping up everywhere recently—and it's easy to see why. Not only do these faintly shimmery bronzer, blush, and highlighting powders give cheeks a gorgeous glow when applied with a brush swirled over the multi-tonal pigments, but they can also multitask. We've experimented with using individual beads as eye shadow, lip color (topped with gloss or balm), and luminizer on the inner corners of eyes, under the brows, and on the cupid's bow. They're just plain fun to use, like makeup should be! Here, a selection of showstopping spheres:
Pür Minerals Pür Rocks
Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Correcting Pebbles
