If the myriad metallic eyes from the world's Fashion Weeks are any indication, now's the time to update your make-up kit

Because after seasons of dewy nude lids, we're guessing your stock is low in glitter shadow. No longer a dirty word, glitter is going hard on eyes, nails and faces (think fine dustings of highlighter for the latter) just in time for the upcoming party season. And it's not too soon to be talking party season, people - it's officially late October. Buckle up.

First off the ranks is M.A.C's shine-heavy Holiday Collection for 2015 - and if ever there was a case for bringing back sparkle, this is it. With a distinct '70s disco vibe, the collection - with names like Magic of the Night, Enchanted Eve and Irresistibly Charming - has all the tools required for powerful party make-up. Special mention goes to their new Colourdrenched Pigments, $42 each, in mad metallic shades like Night Thrill (bold gold), Ascent of Glamour (a cobalt violet-blue) and Tonight's the Night! (a deep blackened teal).

We're just as excited about the new face compacts and lip and eye compacts for on point pairings of the season's most wearable shades, along with the winning line-up of shimmering nail lacquers and brush kits in gleaming Holiday hues. Most of the collection lands on M.A.C counters on November 2, with more to follow on November 16. Work out what you need and add the date to diary, stat.
