Ladies, let's be real right now, I love powdered eyeshadows as much as anyone but they don't last very long and can sometimes be hard to blend. Some formulas also crease too much even after I've primed my lids which is why I'm kinda loving liquid glitter shadows these days.
My mantra is simple when it comes to makeup- it don't mean a thing if it ain't got no bling so I add glitter everywhere. If you find the right formula in liquid shadows, you'll be blessed with no creases, no flakes, and a highly pigmented look that will make you outshine everyone else.
So, if your middle name is OTT (like mine), you've got to give these products a go cause they'll transform your whole eye makeup routine and it'll be tough switching back to powders again.
Cause we're less bitter when there's more glitter!
There's a reason why this Stila eyeshadow is a holy grail product for so many people. Even the most pigmented and longlasting powder-based shadows need to be packed on layer by layer, along with the help of a setting powder of course. Shifting to this will save you time cause all it takes is one swipe. It's got no clumps and glides on to the lids effortlessly. So, for a classic gold eye look, this one is gorgeous!
For people who want to try out the holographic eye look, this metallic shadow by Too Faced is superb. It's a fun party for one in a tube, TBH! You can keep it bold and shiny by using the applicator directly on your lids or you can also go for a smoked out look by smudging it with your finger.
If you hate loose glitter but still want to get that foiled look, try this prismatic eyeshadow by Etude House. It's got some fine glitter particles which once applied, don't transfer onto anything. This is one you should keep for the wedding season cause it goes extremely well with Indian outfits.
Remember when the internet was obsessed with applying matte liquid lipsticks on their eyelids? Yup, you can say bye-bye to that trend (I got a terrible infection when I tried it) all thanks to this dual-ended liquid shadow has a matte formula that’s actually intended to be used on your eyes. First dot the shadow on your lids using the doe-foot applicator and then blend it out with a fluffy brush or your fingers. For a metallic finish, use the other side of the tube and paint on the product. The champagne colour is wearable and goes well with a lot of outfits.
This liquid eyeshadow by PIXI works as a great topcoat on other shadows. Once you're done using a matte powder in your crease, you can add this just as to your entire lid for a high-shine look. You can also use this just in the center of your eyes to create a halo eye or as a cut-crease eyeshadow pigment. The best part about this product is that the specs of sparkle reflect the light really beautifully. So, get ready to be the star of the night!
And if you don't have a liquid eyeshadow, here's a hack that you're going to love. Scoop out some metallic or foiled eyeshadow into the palm of your hands, spritz a little setting spray onto it and mix well. Your DIY liquid eyeshadow is ready to be used!
So... what are you waiting for? Add these to your cart ASAP cause there's no such thing as too much glitter.
