Glitter eye makeup is now a mainstay for a glamorous evening look.
Different eye glitter styles can make you shine, shimmer, razzle and dazzle, but remember that you can only get that stunning look you desire if you use the right glitter eye products to complement your facial features and highlight the beauty in your eyes.
Glitter Eye Shadow
Glitter eyeshadows now come in a wide variety of shades and kinds. Remember that your eye shadow is the main component of your glitter eye makeup so you need to make sure that you choose the right one to apply. In terms of color, it is best that you opt for a color that fits both your skin tone and your eye color. To be safe, you can use a greenish shade or one that is iridescent, meaning that it casts a nice rainbow shine when light casts on it.
It is also important that you consider the color of the rest of your makeup and your outfit color as well. If you have a warm complexion, you can safely apply a gold-based glitter, while a silver-based one would look good on cool and toned complexions.
Glitter Eye Liner
Eye glitter liners will allow you to paint on very precise and crystalline-looking lines through a very thin brush. You can even wear it loud and sweep them on the sides to create a jewel encrusted look.
Glitter Eye Pencil
Glitter eye pencils have micro-glitters infused in the eyeliner pencil. It can add definition and depth into your eyelids to emphasize your eyes. They are usually available in matte or metallic formulations, both of which contain tiny glitter particles that look beautiful when light reflects on it.
Glitter Eye Gel
Glitter eye gels are usually packaged in squeeze tubes and are made of a clear base with micro glitters. You can apply a few layers of glitter eye gel if you want dramatic, ethereal lids, or you can simply use a brush and apply a few thin lines. Glitter eye gels for the eyes are like lip gloss for the lips. Putting on some of it will give your eyes a glossy, satin-finish while keeping it moisturized and shimmer-rich.
Of course, eye makeup is never complete without mascara. Glitter mascaras can give your eye lashes the right glamour and glitz it deserves.
Applying Glitter Eye Makeup
Here are some tips in putting on glitter eye makeup:
1. Imagine how you would want to look like after putting on the makeup. Remember that your main objective would be to highlight your eyes and add shimmer to it.
2. Choose the color that will match the rest of your makeup and your attire. Refer to the tips above in choosing the right eye shadow color.
3. Complete the rest of your makeup first before putting on your eye glitter. Then, using a very small amount, dab a small amount of the eyeshadow using an eyeshadow brush or your fingers, then apply in across through the line where your lashes and upper lids meet.
4. If you want more emphasis, you can apply a very thin layer of eye liner. Make sure that the liner complements your eye shadow color very well. Then, you can put on a mascara to finish it off.
Putting on a good glitter eye makeup is a very good way in livening up your look and style. However, make sure that you only choose the right glitter cosmetics that will look best on you.
