5 Ways to Wear Glitter Eyeshadow This Festival Season

Festival season is the perfect time to experiment with bold and shimmering makeup looks. Glitter eyeshadow can transform your eyes into a dazzling focal point. Here are five ways to wear glitter eyeshadow and make your eyes sparkle under the festival lights.

  1. Full Glitter Lid

Go all out with a full glitter lid for maximum impact. Start with a glitter primer or a cream eyeshadow base to help the glitter adhere and stay in place. Then, apply a generous amount of glitter eyeshadow all over your eyelid. Choose a single bold color or mix several shades for a multidimensional effect.

  1. Glitter Cut Crease

A glitter cut crease adds depth and drama to your eyes. Begin by defining your crease with a matte eyeshadow in a darker shade. Carve out the crease and create a clean line. Then, apply glitter eyeshadow on the lid below the crease, ensuring it stays within the defined area. This technique creates a striking contrast and makes your eyes appear larger.

  1. Inner Corner Highlight

For a subtle yet eye-catching look, apply glitter eyeshadow to the inner corners of your eyes. This brightens your eyes and adds a touch of sparkle without being overpowering. This technique pairs well with any eyeshadow look and can instantly make your eyes appear more awake and vibrant.

  1. Glitter Eyeliner

Transform glitter eyeshadow into a glitter eyeliner for a sleek, sparkling effect. Use a damp angled brush to pick up the glitter eyeshadow and apply it along your lash line, either over a regular eyeliner or directly on your skin. This look can be subtle or bold depending on how thick you make the line.

  1. Halo Eye

Create a mesmerizing halo eye effect by placing glitter eyeshadow in the center of your eyelid. Start with a matte or shimmer eyeshadow on the inner and outer corners of your eyelid, leaving the center bare. Then, apply glitter eyeshadow to the center of the lid and blend the edges into the surrounding shadow. This technique adds dimension and draws attention to the middle of your eyes.

Tips for Applying Glitter Eyeshadow

  • Use Biodegradable Glitter: Biodegradable glitter is the eco-friendly alternative to traditional plastic glitter. It is made from plant-derived, renewable materials, and completely plastic free!
  • Avoid Fallout: Some glitter eyeshadows can have fall out. Hold a tissue or makeup remover pad under your eye while applying to avoid any fall out.
  • Seal the Look: Use a setting spray to keep your glitter eyeshadow in place and prevent it from transferring.

With these five glitter eyeshadow techniques, you can create stunning, festival-ready looks. Sparkle sustainably with biodegradable glitter!
