#SparkleAndShine: We Tell You How To Wear Glitter Eyeshadow Without Making A Mess

Since sparkle and glitter are such big trends this season, we thought we’d make your life easier with this super cool guide. Today, we tell you how to wear glitter eyeshadow without looking like a sassy teenager! If you want your eyes to pop and give off a dramatic vibe, read on to find out how to wear sparkle in real life.

1. Apply With Caution

Ladies, it’s essential to apply the less-is-more approach to applying glitter eyeshadow. One way to go about it is to keep it close to the centre. That way, the sparkle does not take over your lids and you just get a hint of sparkle when you open your eyes. Tip: Keep some sticky tape or tissue paper ready to prevent any unfortunate product fallout.

2. Water Is Your BFF

Since eyeshadow powder is dry, ultra-fine gradient particles could fall onto the rest of your face resulting in ruining your whole make-up look. In such a situation, gently dip the tip of your brush in water and then dip it in the glitter palette. This will help in building up the sparkle with minimal effort.

3. Play Around With Neutrals   

The shimmer is nice, but too much of it can make your eyes look too gaudy. Thus, when it comes to acing the glitter eyeshadow trend, you must know how to create a balance. Without overpowering your eye make-up game, pick neutral shades. They’ll complement the glitter and create an overall depth and definition of your eyes.
