Steps For Glitter Eye Makeup

Step 1: Sweep a light colored shadow into the crease of your eye.

You have so many options on what color to start with! If you plan on going for a more natural look, you could go for a light brown or gray. If you wanted a more colorful look, try a light pink or blue!

Step 2: Pick another color and use a flat brush to dust the color all over your eyelid.

This color could be anything! Just make sure its one that matches well with what you started with.

Step 3: Choose a darker color for the outer corner of your eye.

Once again, this could be any color you choose. If you chose the neutral color scheme, maybe do a darker brown or even black. You could try a navy if you want a colorful look.

Step 4: Blend the color from the corner of your eye into the lid color, softening out the look.

This is super easy! Just make sure you blend enough to get the soft look we want.

Step 5: Using the smudge brush, add some of the darker color from your corner underneath your eye.

Be very subtle with this. You definitely don’t want it to be too dark!

Step 6: Add a light color on top of the brow bone to highlight.

You could also use your handy highlighter for this. If not, a white, cream, or light metallic will do the trick.

Step 7: Add your eyeliner & mascara — a cat eye, or winged look really glams up this look.

This is such an important step! It really brings the glitter eye makeup look together and makes it complete. Winged eyeliner sounds intimidated but it isn’t too hard if you really focus. We know you can do it!

Step 8: (The fun part!) Choose your favorite glittery liner and apply under your eye, and in your creases. If you went with a winged liner, apply glitter directly underneath.

Make sure not to go too crazy with the glitter! Make it look classy and polished but also fun and colorful! If you’re more into the natural look, you could always go for a black glittery eyeliner. If you want a color, the world is your oyster! There are so many colors to choose from so choose wisely.

We hope you love this glittery look. It can truly be worn to any special event with the right dress. It will really give a unique pop to a simple dress – it could even take the place of sparkling jewelry!
