How To Wear Glitter Like A Grown-Up This Party Season

Glitter is a fascinating iridescent substance when you’re a child. And, for many, the novelty doesn’t really wear off when we grow up! 

If you want to bring the shine while still looking like an adult this party season, here are five tips to keep it classy.

TIP #1: Less is more

Before you haul out your array of sparkly make-up, it’s important to remember that, when it comes to glitter, less is always more. This doesn’t only apply to the amount you apply but also to where you apply it. Apply it to one feature, such as the eyes or lips, rather than using it everywhere. Some people also prefer products with a subtle shimmer instead. The choice is yours – but always go easy!

TIP #2: Enhance your eyes

One of the most popular places where people like to apply glitter make-up is their eyes. This can make their peepers pop and sparkle and draw in all the attention. You can use a shimmery eyeshadow or a glitter-studded liquid liner for an elegant look.

TIP #3: Apply some face shimmer

While it’s not a good idea to get too carried away, some strategic placement of glitter or highlighter can accentuate your cheekbones and the high planes of your face. You can use the same product to add some shimmer to the rest of your body.

TIP #4: Get a glitter manicure

If you’re still too scared to put glitter on your face, you can still bring it into your beauty looks. Enter the glitter manicure! Whether you just do one accent nail or opt for a full shiny set, this is an easy way to show off some sparkle.

TIP #5: Use a glitter gloss

Instead of using glitter to enhance your eyes, you can use it to draw attention to your lips instead. You can use a lipstick that has a shimmery or metallic finish or, for a subtle make-up look, you can opt for a sparkly lip gloss.
