Sparkle All Summer with Glitter Eyeshadow
Looking to sparkle all summer long? Glitter eyeshadow is a popular makeup trend that comes in a variety of colors and is easy and fun to use for hot nights on the town or to add a touch of sensuality on date night. Either way, no one will be able to take their eyes off of you!
Metallic vs. Glitter Eyeshadow
First things first: When choosing the best eyeshadow palette, you want to consider the final look you would like to achieve. Although many glitter eyeshadows may seem similar, there are differences. For example, metallic eyeshadows offer a more high-shine result, much like a metal texture. Metallic also has a thinner, finer finish which appears more foiled in appearance and less grainy on the skin.
Glitter eyeshadow, on the other hand, is more for a party or an event where you desire to attract more attention to the eyes because it works to highlight skin tone more. Glitter eyeshadow is created with tiny particles that can sometimes irritate the eyes, so it is important to apply them with care. Choosing the best eyeshadow palette should be based on your desired result and for the event for which you are wearing it. Metallic is a great go-to for a softer look, while glitter eyeshadow offers a more bold look!
How to Apply Glitter Eyeshadow
You may have experienced a messy application when trying to apply eye glitter makeup. But that doesn’t have to be the case. With proper application methods, you can take your eyes from drab to spectacular without any fallout or mess. Here are four imperative — and easy — steps to apply eye glitter makeup perfectly for a stunning look: Place a small amount of glitter in the lid or on a clean surface. Keep in mind, if you are wearing a shadow beneath your loose glitter, apply your primer first. Next, apply a thin layer of cosmetic glitter glue/adhesive to your eyelid with your finger or applicator. Finally, you can hold a folded tissue under your lower lid to help catch any glitter that may fall during the application.
How to Remove Glitter Eyeshadow
Removing glitter eyeshadow may seem like a monstrous task, but it’s actually a lot easier than you’d think. First, you’ll need a cotton pad and some oil or an oil-based cleaner for the job.
Next, dampen the pad of cotton with the oil or oil-based cleanser. Gently place the cotton pad on your eyelid to loosen the product. You can repeat as necessary until the glitter eyeshadow is removed. If you're still having trouble removing all of the product, simply take a little oil in the palm of your hands. Dip your index finger into the oil and gently rub your eyelids for around thirty seconds to one minute. You can let the oil sit for another 30 seconds to ensure all of the product comes off. Finally, cleanse your eyelids by dipping a new cotton ball in water and wiping away the final residue.
