With these ideas, you will surely become the center of attention and fashion icon no matter where you are headed. So, let’s take a closer look at this golden compilation!

  • It is all about precision. To solve that drama equation, you should be very precise. Otherwise, it will look just messy.
  • Have fun rather than be serious. Makeup with glitter is like a game - play it in a cheerful mood.

First, let’s discuss how to apply gold glitter makeup to your eyes.

  1. Apply eyeshadow primer to the eyelids and make sure it covers all corners. The primer will reduce extra oil and ensure that the glitter stays on. Dust some transparent loose powder under the eyes to avoid any stuck glitter pieces. This powder should be wiped away after you finish the glitter application.
  2. Apply cream eyeshadow to your eyelids. Pick a shade you prefer. The cream can help hold the glitter.
  3. Dip the eyeshadow brush into water, then paper-towel-dry it till it is a bit damp.

  1. Holding some tissue under your eye, apply the glitter eyeshadow to the lid. Press the brush gently. When all glitter pieces are set, remove the excess glitter from your eyelashes. Just blink fast, touching a tissue with your eyelashes.
  2. Fan the face with some paper. Remove that tissue from under your eyes. Several cotton swabs dipped into makeup remover will help get rid of fallen glitter. Voila!

And in general, whenever removing the glitter from anywhere, it is advisable to use oil-based remover.

Wish to rock glitter gold on your lips?

Start with exfoliating the lips. Just dampen the lips with water and exfoliate them, using a lip scrub or just a clean and a very soft toothbrush. Several seconds will be enough. Rinse the lips with lukewarm water and apply lip balm. This step is not a must, but chapped lips won’t let the makeup look good.

Apply creamy lipstick (preferably the one from a tube for glitter to stick). Apply the first coat, blot it, using a tissue. Apply one more coat but don’t blow it this time. Thus, the glitter will better adhere.

Use only cosmetic glitter on your lips. Purchase only fine gold glitter as it’s the only way to ensure that the look will be smooth rather than grainy or chunky.

Apply glitter over the lipstick, with a special lipstick brush or your finger. If the glitter won’t stick, apply transparent lip balm and try again.

Finally, press the lips together instead of pressing a napkin like you are used to doing. It’s because napkin is likely to remove most of the glitter.

Always remove the glitter before going to bed. Any oil-based product for makeup removing will do.

A brush for makeup that has stiff bristles will work for the adhesive application. Apply the adhesive in smaller areas, or it will dry out before you manage to cover it with glitter pieces. Apply the glitter, using that same brush. When the desirable pattern is created, you can make it more dimensional by applying additional glitter layers. Now you are ready to sparkle!
