Step-by-step: Wearing glitter Add to ...

Adding glitter to your makeup can be challenging without making it look like you're off to a night at the circus. Here are some tips on making it more wearable.


  • glitter
  • base


For a touch of glitter, apply just along the lash line, on top of your eyeliner or, for a bit more of a standout look, try applying the glitter to the outer third of the eyelid, which will also help to make your eyes look bigger.

Start by placing the glitter on a tissue so you can better control the amount you use.

Take your brush or applicator and dip into your adhering solution, and then into your glitter.

Then, gently place the product sparingly and in small sections. You can always go back and add more if you want more sparkle.

Clean up any stray glitter that may have fallen during the application.
