Banish those thoughts of glitter gel and sparkling pots you used when you were a teen; glitter is back, and it’s never been cooler. With backstage beauty as our muse, we’re showing you how to nail the biggest beauty trend, just in time for the festive season.
TWINKLING TEAR DUCTS
Ease yourself into the sparkling trend with hints of metallic to highlight your tear ducts. Use the silver shades from our Smokey Purple Eyeshadow Palette to achieve the look.
An alternative to focussing on the eyes, why not put an emphasis on your lips with a glitz pout? Start with a lip primer and apply a high shine lip glaze, before using a brush to dab on glitter. Wait for it to dry and voila, a statement party look.
Brows have never been bigger, and what better way to highlight under the arch, than with a touch of shimmer, backstage beauty style. Top tip: use a primer before applying the glitter for optimum staying power.
Give glitter the space age-themed love it deserves with adventurous patterns and shapes on the face. Use stencils to create the look, or face stickers if you don’t have time.
DUSTINGS OF GLITTER
Want to channel those festival vibes from summer? Keep it ethereal with dustings of glitter spread over your lids, under the eyes and across the eyebrows. Use a Natural Nudes palette over the eyes before adding your glitter to give the lids more depth.
If silver and gold is far from your thing, why not try an alternative metallic palette. Channel 80s vibes with slicks of shadow- our 12 Shade Eyeshadow Palette will help you achieve the look.
Want shimmering cheekbones that add instant luxe to a minimal look? Try a highlighter stick or strobe palette to focus the light and add high shine a natural face.
A TOUCH OF SILVER
If you’re looking for alternative ways to make a metallic statement without focusing under your eyes or around your tear ducts, form a vertical line from the top of the lid to your eyelash, blending for an effortless feel. Finish with a berry lip to add vamp touches to the look.
