A little sparkle and shimmer never hurt anyone!
Glitter is a little like marmite, you either love it or you hate it! Either way a little shimmer and sparkle always adds that extra touch to your makeup especially during the festive season! But we all know that glitter has a tendency to get absolutely everywhere, and removing it can be a nightmare at the best of times. There are a few things you can do to prevent this from happening.
First things first
You can start my minimising glitter fallout all over your dressing table or area you will be applying makeup from by prepping your workspace first. Start by making sure that the surface you will be working from is clean. Then lay down some sheets of newspaper or magazine paper, try to work over this space. Once you are done carefully fold the sheets and dispose of them.
Sticking to the eye first!
Assuming that you want glitter only on the lids, you should always start with eye makeup first when working with glitter. There is guaranteed to be some fallout, but by applying your concealer and foundation after eye makeup will help you achieve a clean finish, without having to go through the hassle of having to remove and then reapplying foundation.
Use a glitter primer
Any type of primer is sufficient when applying your base, but using a primer that is specifically formulated to make glitter stick and stay will definitely make your job a lot easier! Most glitter primers can be applied over eyeshadow without ruining it so that will be one less thing for your to worry about. Using a flat shaped brush will allow you to apply the primer over your lid gently, remember to only apply the primer in the areas you want the glitter.
At some point we will all have seen either masking tape or regular tape used to get a sharp and accurate finish to your cut crease. This same concept can be used if you are attempting a glitter cat eye. Simply apply tape from the corner of your eye and angle towards your eyebrow. When creating the cat eye shape the tape will help you to achieve a precise finish. Once the glitter has set you can remove and repeat the same on the other eye. Any smudging or small fallouts can be removed gently by using a small cotton bud and a good eye makeup remover.
Use setting spray
A good setting spray will not only prevent you from getting shiny, but will also lock everything in place, especially when using glitter. However, the most crucial bit of advise we can give is to try and avoid having to touch or rub your eyes once the glitter has been set. The last thing you want is to look like a glittery hot mess!
