Today we will tell you how to apply glitter eyeshadow and make your eyes sparkle-up with glitter effortlessly.
Step 1 – Prep & Prime
Before you begin with the base eye shadow don’t forget to apply concealer or a primer to make sure your glitter eye shadow stays longer and doesn’t cake or crease in heavy heat & sun. Always trust Colorbar Flawless Full Cover Concealer for the job. Its liquid-to-powder formula and sunflower wax ensure that your eye makeup stays put, including the shimmery shadows.
Pro Tip - Dab some translucent powder on your under eye area to collect the loose eye shadow that may fall on during application.
Step 2 – Ace The Base
Now that you’ve prepped your eyelids it’s time to apply the base eye shadow shade. The trick is to pick the lightest matte shade in the palette as a base for the darker and shinier shades to stand out. Once you’ve worked out the base, pick a medium-toned shade and blend it seamlessly into the base shade.
Pro Tip - Pick a dark toned glowing metallic shade from the middle column of the palette.
Step 3 – Glitter Out Loud
The third and the starriest dab is the one with a lot of sparkle in it. Undoubtedly, one of the fluid metallic shades from the Dreamland Eyeshadow Palette steps in here to up the drama of your eyes.
Start out with a subtle veil of optimum glitter and build up some more to prevent caking.
It's better to use the Colorbar Pro Eyeshadow Brush if you're applying eye glitter in the inner corner of your eyes or along the lash line. But if your goal is to go gaga over your eyelids then using your fingertips is a great idea.
Pro Tip - Avoid glitter on the creases and outer corner of your eyes as it has a tendency to go all over the place.
