Light-catching glitter is an embellishment that can be taken from the festival to the street—it's only a matter of application.
THE MINIMALIST SWOOSH
- Draw a slim silver cat eye along your top lash line.
- Dip a thin eyeliner brush in an adhesive (such as a mixing medium or lip gloss) and then dip the brush in loose silver glitter.
- Coat the glitter across the silver eyeliner on your top eyelid.
- Add more glitter as desired.
THE LOW-KEY BOTTOM LINER
For subtle embellishment, brush loose glitter along your lower lash line, using a mixing medium as an adhesive.
BORROWED FROM THE BOYS
The most festival-ready glitter application lies in a dusting of the upper cheeks, starting at the eye. It's a look taken from the paces of Shakespearian pixies and glam rock musicians like the legendary David Bowie.
THE BIG SPLASH
Give your makeup a playful cisco nod by applying eye gloss or a clear mixing medium to your eyelids, then pressing on as much loose glitter as desired.
THE BOLD STRIPE
Just above the eyelid but just below the brow, a thick strip of chromatic sparkles is at once unexpected and entirely modern.
TIP • Wear under eye stickers when applying glitter shadow to avoid rogue sparkles!
