Now that the holidays are upon us, it’s the perfect excuse to rock glitter makeup for all the fab parties you’re going to attend. Yep, glitter isn’t meant to be worn just by celebrities and makeup artists.

Below are three ways you can rock glitter makeup during the holiday season and beyond.


Glitter Cat Eye Wing

This is a simple way to add some sparkle to your eyes! Simply draw your standard cat eye with a black or dark-colored liner, then apply glitter on top of the wing. We prefer to use a glitter liner like the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter EyeLiners to precisely top off the cat eye with the amount of glitter desired.

Bold Glitter Lip

Don’t be afraid to rock vibrant, glitter lips! The trick is to keep your eye makeup soft and simple to let the lips shine without overdoing it. We use glitter lippies like the Kat Von D Everlasting Glimmer Veil Liquid Lipstick because it’s highly-pigmented and the glitter particles in the formula make your lips glow. You can wear it on its own or wear it on top of your favorite lipstick for an amplified punch.

Glitter Lid

Glitter lids are fierce and flirty, but it can be intimidating since it can get messy — so apply your eye makeup before you apply face makeup to avoid any glitter fallout. Another tip: apply your eyeshadow to your lids for a blended, seamless look, then apply a glitter glue or sticky base primer on your lids, and sprinkle the glitter on top of the eyeshadow. You can apply the glitter all over the lids, or simply in the center of the lids for a bit of shimmer. Try the NYX Face and Body Glitter pigments because they’re available in tons of gorgeous shades and so easy to use.
