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 Water Base and dip into the glitter. Press/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 attention. The easiest way to do this is to line your eyes with a glitter pencil/liquid eyeliner.
You can also use loose glitter to line your eyes. I would suggest using a gel liner then wetting the eyeliner brush before you apply the glitter so it would stick better.

3. On Eyelashes
There are two ways you can wear glitter on your eyelashes.

* Use a clear mascara that comes with glitter like Shiseido Majolica Majorca’s Lash Freeze Mascara. Apply on the tip of your eyelashes for a truly glamorous look.

* Wear a pair of glitter false lashes. Ardell’s 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 too chunky. I personally *love* Make Up For Ever and MAC’s Glitter but you can also use glitter from art supplies store as long as it is really fine.

I am posting this because I have had many questions re wearing glitter...Hope it helps..If you have any other questions, please let me know!
