Browsing the Internet for makeup inspiration pictures is one of our favourite things to do. Never have we enjoyed it more, however, than when we’re looking for different ways to incorporate glitter into our looks! Right now, one of the most popular eye makeup trends going is to let your eyes sparkle and shine.
Check out these 13 edgy, adorable, and just plain fun ways to use glitter on your eye (but remember to get real cosmetic glitter rather than unsafe crafting glitter)!
1. Silver, pink, and purple gradient lid
No one ever said you have to stick to just one type of glitter! We love the way this look blends three different shadows and three different corresponding colours of glitter all across the lid for maximum effect.
2. Glitter brows and lashes
Glitter eyelids are amazing, but there are other awesome ways to incorporate some sparkle into your overall eye look as well! Try creating a coloured glitter brow or dusting some lightly onto your lashes and affixing it with spray adhesive before you put them on for the night.
3. Neutral lid with gold glitter
Glitter doesn’t have to scream “bright” and “loud”! It can look just as edgy if you wear it in a more classed up way. Try blending a base of metallic gold and copper and then dusting tiny gold glitter in the very centre of your eyelid where the light hits it. Talk about subtle impact!
4. Black and chunky rainbow glitter
Is the idea of small, fine glitter not really wild enough for what you had in mind when you pictured “sparkles”? Never fear! Plenty of chunky cosmetic glitters exist too! We love how this chunky rainbow glitter looks across the lid on a deep black shadow base.
