Do you still hesitate to use glitter eye liner? Read our tips, and they will help you not to be afraid of such a bold makeup decision.
Glitter is not vulgar. The point is in knowing the measure. If there is only one glitter product on your face (shadows, eye liner, lip gloss), you should not worry about looking tasteless.
1. Try Glitter Eyeshadow first
The first tip for those who have never tried glitter eye liner is to try glitter eye shadows first. If you like them, you can feel safe to buy glitter eye liner. But be sure to never apply both eye liner and shadows with glitter! One thing at a time!
2. Apply Glitter Eyeliner on the Skin
Liquid eye liners with glitter are easier to apply on the skin. But you should still think about wetting the skin before using the eye liner. As a foundation product, you can use a homemade primer: mix a moisturizing cream and a foundation.
3. Choose Eye Pencils
Eye pencils are more suitable if you have powder eye shadows.
4. Use the Glitter Eye Liner after Mascara
Once you have applied the eye shadows, use mascara and only then take the glitter eye liner. Thus you will not have glitters on your eyelashes, and the liner will be brighter.
For a more dramatic makeup, use darker shades of the eye liner.
6. Where to Apply?
You can apply glitter eye liner only at the outer corner of the eye – on the part of the eyelid.
7. Lip Makeup & Blush
Make sure the rest of your makeup will fit the glitter eye liner. For the rest of the makeup, it is better to choose neutral colors or a limited range of them. Glitter eye liner goes well with nude lips and a slight blush.
8. Fit the Clothes to the Glitter Eye Makeup
After applying glitter makeup, have a look at the clothes. A clutch and shoes should match your glitter. The top of the dress should not have any accessories that are similar in color to the glitter eye liner. That is, earrings and necklaces should be less brilliant than the glitter eye liner, and then your makeup will make a difference.
