Glitter Eyeshadow Looks To Try This Season

Glitter eye makeup

If you like to create fun, playful looks with makeup, glitter eyeshadow might be your favorite product. Glitter eyeshadow looks add elegance, sparkle, and shine to your appearance. Here are some fun ideas for glitter makeup looks to try this season!

The Basics: Simple Glitter Eyeshadow

If you’re new to the world of eye makeup, glitter eyeshadow might seem intimidating. But here’s a little secret: Because glitter itself is 3-dimensional and catches the light in different ways, even a simple sparkle eyeshadow look is going to appear more complex than it really is!

This simple look uses two eyeshadow shades from an eyeshadow palette: one glitter and one matte. It also uses black eyeliner and mascara.

To create this look, first, start with your matte shade. Cover your whole eyelid and blend it out with a round blending brush to create a soft edge. Then, add glitter in a complementary shade to the inside and middle of the eyelid. Use the blending brush to gently blend the glitter towards the outside of the eye, and then top it with your favorite eyeliner and mascara.

Now that you’re familiar with the basics of glitter, let’s check out some more glitter eye looks for inspiration!
