Wearing sparkly liquid eyeliner adds some whimsical pizzazz to any makeup look. However, it can be difficult to apply liquid glitter eyeliner evenly and successfully without making a mess or ending up with glitter in your eyes halfway through the day. If you want to wear sparkling eyeliner and pull it off flawlessly, keep reading to discover helpful tips on how to wear liquid glitter eyeliner.
1. Apply Primer
It is important to prime your eyelids before you apply glitter eyeliner to help the liquid liner stick to your skin without flaking off throughout the day. Make sure that when you apply the eyeshadow primer to your eyelids, you spread the primer all the way down to your lash line and cover your bottom lash line as well.
2. Layer Liners
If you try to apply liquid glitter eyeliner to the bare skin of your eyelid, you’ll likely be very disappointed. Glitter eyeliner generally does not show up very well when used on its own.
To fix this problem, simply layer a line of liquid glitter eyeliner over your normal eyeliner. For the most vivid results, use a pencil liner that is close to the color of the glitter you’ll be using. Pink glitter line shows up most intensely when layered over pink pencil liner rather than black or brown, for example.
3. Use a Setting Spray
Spraying your makeup with a setting spray after you apply your liquid glitter eyeliner can do wonders to help your liner stay in place all day long without smearing, smudging, or flaking off.
Wait about a minute before spraying your liner with setting spray to give it a chance to dry and ensure that the spray does not mess it up. Then, close your eyes and mist the setting spray directly onto your eyelids to coat all of your liner.
