Adding a bit of glitter onto your eyes can instantly glam up any look and as promised, here are a few ways you can wear glitter on the eye area:
1. On The Eyelid
To use loose glitter as an eyeshadow, you will first need to apply a cream eyeshadow as a base so the glitter has something to stick onto. Next, wet an eyeshadow brush with MAC Water Base Mixing Medium and dip into the glitter. Press or pat the glitter onto your eyelid until you have achieved the look you want. Never try to blend or the glitter will fall off. Finish with liner and mascara. Clean up any fallouts with a fan brush or scotch tape.

2. As An Eyeliner
Putting glitter along your lash line can give you a sexy pop of color without screaming too much attention. The easiest way to do this is with a glitter pencil or liquid eyeliner. MAC Glitter Liners come in a variety of gorgeous colors that will stay put all day and make your eyes sparkle in no time. Another way is to apply loose glitter with a wet brush on top of a gel liner.
3. On Eyelashes
There are two ways you can wear glitter on your eyelashes.
* Use a clear mascara that comes with glitter like Majolica Majorca Lash Freeze Mascara. Apply on the tip of your eyelashes for a truly glamorous look.
* Wear a pair of glitter false lashes. Ardell Elegant Eyes line makes a decent collection of glitter false lashes at low prices.
How To Pick The Right Glitter
Picking the right glitter is very important. You want something that is super fine and not chunky. I personally *love* Make Up For Ever and MAC Glitters.
