Want to be shimmery this season? It’s not too late yet! Here are 10 ways to enjoy glitter makeup this season!

Time To Shine! 10 Ways To Enjoy Glitter Makeup

You may be asking yourself, “Didn’t she just say she doesn’t want glitter makeup for next year?” I don’t personally hate glitters. I am a huge lover of colors after all. What I don’t like is a lot of women are so obsessed with it they add it everywhere! But when done right, with a lot of finesse and class, they can highlight your best assets and make your life more fun!

You can wear them on:

1. Eyes, To Open Them More


Got some post-NYE parties or reunions to attend to? You can still wear your festive holiday makeup, and it will never be complete without a pair of glittery eyes. And how do you do it? You use shimmery eyeshadows! They’re also an awesome way to make your eyes open more just in case you don’t want to deal with too much mascara or eyelash extension.

This glitter eye makeup looks really stunning I can’t stop gazing at it!

2. Lips, To Make The Look More Festive

Want to be the talk of the town? Then put sparkles on your lips! Line your lips then apply your base color (preferably something similar to your glitter’s color). Once it’s set, spread out glitter primer or glue and apply your glitter on top! It’s gonna grab everyone’s attention as it’s meant to be a statement—own it!

3. Nails, To Add Sass

[instagram url= hidecaption=true width=625] More women are expressing themselves through nail art, and for this year, we’ve gone glittery! And there are many are ways to do that. One, you can include stones and crystals to enhance the sparkle further.

Or you can try to be more “subdued” by applying one shade as your base then coating your nails with glitter. This nail design definitely goes well with your more festive post-NYE parties.

4. Hair, To Enjoy More Colors

To be honest, a glittery hair doesn’t work for everyone. It isn’t meant for people who have less patience in fixing their hair afterward or for those who have to fight against frizziness (you may want to deal with it first with this).

If you aren’t too confident to wear glitters on your hair, you can do something more “minimal” as in the image above, by applying them only to a small section.

5. Eyeliner, To Deal With Hooded Eyes

A glitter makeup eyeliner is something you cannot abuse, or else, it overpowers the rest of your makeup easily. But applying it is one of the best ways to deal with hooded eyes or make your eyes appear larger.

6. Brows, To Accentuate Its Fullness

Don’t want a shimmering eyeliner? Then perhaps you can make it up with your brows. Note, though, brow glitters appeal more if the hairs are thick.

But wait . . . you can also wear glitter makeup in another way: have them on makeup and things related to makeup! For example:

7. Get The Ultimate Glitter Makeup Collection

I’ve seen some of the most amazing and even decadent makeup collections last 2016, and nothing – and I mean NOTHING – can ever match up to Mac x Mariah Carey’s collection if glittery is what we’re talking about. Just look at the image above!

8. See Them On Bags And Purses

Can we ever live without makeup when we’re out? Of course not! The great news is if you’re a huge fan of glitters, you’ll never run out of makeup bag options. For example, you can get a purse, which can store your travel essentials.

If you’re going to a formal or a cocktail party with friends, a lovely shiny clutch or box bag will do.

Then there’s the small shoulder bag, which can bring along your lippies, compact blush, or moisturizer (to beat the effects of cold weather on your skin) on daytime strolls and casual dates.

9. Let That Makeup Brush Holder Sparkle

Displaying your brushes like this are not just for vanity. It helps preserve the shape of the brush, from the handle to the bristles, so they last longer! But glasses and mason jars can be pretty boring. Make them look awesome by coating the glass or jar with glue and roll it on a plate or pan of glitter.

10. Buy Or Make A Glitter Makeup Organizer


Who likes a messy vanity? I guess none. Keep your “beauty corner” clean and preserve the quality of your makeup by investing in a glittery makeup organizer like this one or make one yourself. You can grab a box, apply glue on all sides, and then brush some glitter all over it.
