Make sure that your eye glitter color compliments the color of your eye shadow. Choose a richly saturated color like Doe Deere does and remember to use those that works well with your skin tone. Be sure to apply a liberal amount of primer to ensure that your eye shadow and the eye glitter stay in place. Also use a cotton swab to apply a bit of Vaseline to your lash line. This is another preventive measure that will help the glitter hold better instead of flaking and shedding all over your cheeks. Opt for a cream-based eye shadow to make sure the glitter stays put.
Your base eye shadow should be applied first, and then the eye glitter is applied. Make sure to close your eye when lightly patting the glitter on your lid. If you are worried about the glitter falling into your eye, use a bit of lash glue and keep your eye closed until the lash glue has fully dried.
When it is time to apply the eye glitter, use a careful stroke and apply the glitter very slowly at first. A little bit of glitter can go along way. Take extra care to outline your lash line first. You need to shade this glitter in a neat manner, so take your time. This can really make or break this look; if you have too much glitter along the lash line it can be a bit overwhelming.
If you notice that there is a dusting of glitter on your cheeks in spite of using primer and Vaseline, do not fret. A bit of masking tape can safe the day. A little masking tape can extract the glitter from your face. It is wise to apply your glitter eye make-up before applying your foundation, because then you don’t have to worry about the masking tape pulling off your foundation along with the glitter.
Removing the glitter eye make-up can be achieved by tapping your eyelid lightly with masking tape. Be sure to close your eye when doing this. If you did opt for lash glue, the removal process is fairly easy; you should be able to lightly pull the lash glue off of your eyelid.
Glitter eye shadow can be the perfect touch to a festive look. A bit of glitter can make any occasion a bit more whimsical. This vintage look continues to charm and is sure to make your eyes sparkle with a playful spirit.
