Sure, glitter in December is an obvious choice. But, so is Home Alone 2 and East 17, yet we still crack them out every year. It’s time to talk glitter eyes, because shiny nails just aren’t enough.
You don’t need a party to pull this off, just a pretty steady hand and some scotch tape to deal with the aftermath (fallout, we know you’re coming). So, how to do it? Prep your lids with a primer to keep the glitter locked in, long-term. If you’re coating the whole eye, your fingertip is the best tool, just collect some pigment and dab across your lid. For more precision, try a glitter liner, or opt for a pencil brush to concentrate the product on one area (the inner corner looks great).
I’d recommend scouting out Katie Jane Hughes’ Instagram come festive season (though an everyday stalk is generally encouraged). Combining an all-out eye look with an easy-going base, she’s got the glitter thing sussed.
