Trick #1 – Prime the area

First things first. Prime your skin where you will be applying the glitter with a “glitter glue” to help glitter stick to your eyelids. Want to use something you already have in your makeup bag?  A drop of eyelash glue will do the job. Dilute a drop of lash glue with a drop of water, and swipe it over your eyelids with a cotton swab. Wait until the glue starts to dry before applying glitter.

Trick #2 – Minimize glitter mess

Glitter makes a mess. To prevent loose glitter from falling all over your face and party outfit, place a tissue under the eye to catch any fall-out. Then, dip your makeup brush in water before dipping it in the glitter, and that can also prevent glitter from falling out. Pat on the loose glitter, then keep your eyes closed for a moment to allow it to dry.

Trick #3 – Seal the deal

Finally, use a setting spray to hold the glitter in place and prevent your makeup from smudging or fading. After all, nobody has time for a makeup meltdown during a party. Shake the bottle before use. Spray it on in both an “X” shape and a “T” shape, approximately 15 cm from your face.
