Whether it’s a sparkling rouge lip or a shimmering smokey eyeshadow, glitter makeup never fails to turn heads and draw attention. When done right, rocking glittery hues on your face definitely adds a sophisticated touch to your looks. When coupled with good skin care from products like Tony Moly, you’re sure to stand out.
Here are ways to wear glitter makeup:
Glitter eyeliners are excellent in making your eyes look brighter and bigger, compared to dark non-glittery eyeliners that tend to add more depth and definition, and may make your eyes look deeper and smaller. When applying glitter eyeliners, make sure you do not overuse them, because it may overpower the rest of your makeup easily. Like with other eyeliners, be sure to apply it as close to the eyelid as possible.
Smokey eyeshadows are a raving trend right now, but how about leveling up your smokey eye game by using a shimmering eyeshadow? Shimmering eyeshadows are a sure-fire way to accentuate your eyes and add a dramatic glam to your looks. Rock this look by first applying a neutral, matte color as the base to cover your entire lid. Then, you may add shimmery tones for the second and third coats. The strongest color should be the outermost coat and blend accordingly.
Lipstick and lipgloss
Sparkly lips are an attention-grabbing statement of its own, where nothing much else needs to be said. Also, you have more freedom to wear more shocking lip colors when using glitter lipsticks and lipgloss, such as emerald green and sapphire blue! To rock this look, make sure you start out with moisturized, chap-free lips. If you want to use a lip liner, it is ideal to use a glitter lip liner too for smoother blending. Apply the liner first, and follow up with a thick coat of glitter lipstick or lipgloss. Make sure to also bring the same lipstick or lipgloss, as you’d want to re-apply them after eating or drinking.
Glitter blushes are a sophisticated way to add rosiness to the cheeks and highlighting them at the same time. Just like non-glitter blush, apply it on the apples and cheekbones and accentuate based on your face shape. Just make sure not to overdo it, since the shimmer might be overpowering to the rest of your face.
Who said brows can’t shine too? Applying glitter to your brows is a very creative and strikingly dazzling way to add fun to your brow makeup routine. To rock this look, all you need to do is apply brow glitter (yes, they exist) to shaped eyebrows. You can make it look subtle and refined by applying brow glitter in small amounts near the end of your brow towards your temples, or you can go all out in rocking a full shimmering brow, as long as you’re not wearing, or just lightly wearing, other glitter makeup on your face.
There are no holds barred when it comes to rocking glitter nail polish! Paint your nails with the boldest, grandest, and fabulous polish colors. You may even add other accents like sequins and faux crystals to your nails for extra glamour. Just remember to properly clean, trim, and grow your nails before applying glitter polish. Also make sure to re-coat every couple weeks, or when your nail polish starts fading.
Yes, rocking glittery hair is totally cool and fine if you know how to do it. Ideally, you should only be applying hair glitter on a certain area, preferably near the roots. To achieve this look, you may do the following steps:
Part your hair, do a braid, or any hairstyle that will expose a part of your scalp and hair roots.
Next, spritz on a bit of hairspray on the area to keep it fairly flat.
Carefully add glitter glue in the area, starting with the innermost root area near the scalp, and work your way to half. Ideally, you should only be covering about an inch or two of hair length with glitter glue.
Then, add a sprinkle or two of your favorite glitter.
Top it off with a bit more hairspray to lock your glitters down, and you should be ready to strut the limelight in no time!
With the right amount of creativity, technique, and confidence, rocking the glitter makeup is surely fun and worth trying. Keeping a balanced blending of shimmering colors and makeup pairings are the key to achieving your desired stylish glitter look. The biggest drawback, however, with glitter makeup is subtlety — wearing glitter makeup the wrong way can make you look like an overgrown teenager. However, with the right shading, application, and techniques, rocking the glitter makeup look will be effortless to make you a dazzling beauty.
