What's a soirée season staple? For me, it's definitely a glitter eyeliner! Some lucky ladies got to try the Bloom Glitter Eyeliner in our November box but might be a little unsure of how to use it. Read on for four ways to get your glitter on!
1. Sparkly lids
First of all, you can apply the glitter eyeliner over your entire lid, either over eyeshadow or just on its own. The easiest way to achieve this is by applying the glitter eyeliner in a criss cross pattern and then using your finger to distribute the glitter over the lid. I think this is the perfect festive look for Christmas or New Years (which is just around the corner...scary I know!)
2. Over black liner
Add a twist to the traditional black eyeliner by applying glitter eyeliner over your liner. I find that the best type of eyeliner to use for this is a liquid eyeliner, such as e.l.f. Essential Liquid Eyeliner or Eye of Horus Liquid Define Eyeliner. First line your eyes (finishing with a cat eye flick of course) and wait for the eyeliner to dry. Then simply apply the glitter eyeliner over the black liner - instant glam eyes!
3. On the lower lash line
A subtle touch of glitter? Try applying glitter eyeliner to your lower lash line (it will also brighten up your eyes!). You can choose to apply it on its own, over eyeliner or eyeshadow. And remember with glitter eyeliner, you can always use more applications to build the glitter.
4. Glitterful lashes
Using glitter eyeliner on your lashes might not be the first thing you think of when it comes to using your glitter liner! Add gorgeous sparkle and shine to your lashes by flicking the glitter eyeliner over the tips of your lashes after applying mascara. You can do this with your real lashes or even with falsies, such as Eylure Ready to Wear Lashes.
