Step 1. Color the entire lid with a black pencil or cream eyeshadow. This will give the glitter something to grab onto and better adhere to the skin.

Step 2. Pat loose glitter from the inner corner to 3/4 of the lid using a small brush or your fingers. For a messier glossy effect, go with a gel-based glitter.
