Makeup tips for working with glitter will help you master these effects in no time.
Glitter Cosmetics Add Sparkle
Adding sparkle to your makeup takes a little finesse, but you’ll find that it’s easy to perfect any look you try with a few simple makeup tips:
Think of it as frosting for your makeup look. A little on top of your other makeup works for just about any design.
Sparkles or shimmer will work best if you choose one area to emphasize. If you want the focus to be on wonderful smokey eyeshighlighted with glitter makeup, then pass on glitter lipstick.
Recognize the difference between wearing a style and creating a look for photos. Heavy glitter on your eyes or lips might be perfect for that wildfantasy makeup portrait, but it doesn’t hold up for an evening of fun.

Glitter Makeup Ideas
You can use glitter makeup to create breathtaking holiday makeup looks if you pair it with smokey eyes. First create your favorite smokey eye makeup look. Once you have the technique that works for you it’s time to shimmer up.
Add silver glitter to any gray smokey eye makeup look. A light coat of powdered silver eyeshadow looks beautiful. You could also do a purple eyeshadow makeup look and then top it with a purple glitter.
Here’s one that I really like – purple and blue combined with shimmer. It’s a style that works for winter fairy makeup looks.
Glitter Makeup Products:
Just about every makeup line has a glitter a product or two, but these two cosmetic companies have some very nice selections:
- Make Up For Ever Glitters – At just $13 a pop, you can’t go wrong with these. There’s a good selection of colors and you’ll find that the products stay on.
- Kat Von D Rock n Roll Eyeshadow Duos – Gorgeous colors presented in both a shimmer and glitter form side by side. The eyeshadow duos are $20. Perfect for subtle or fantasy looks.
Christmas Glitter Looks
Christmas is a wonderful time to add gold or silver to your makeup looks. Gold makeup works especially well during the winter seasons and it’s easy to add it to your makeup styles and it only takes one product to do it. Gold eyeshadow can actually be used to highlight your lips, cheeks or as an eyeshadow highlight. The same goes for silver.
Subtle Shimmer Makeup
Sometimes women with fair skin find that shimmer really overpowers them. If that’s the case for you, then try using a multiple use product with shimmer in it. For instance Nars Cosmetics makes the multiple blush sticks in colors that are perfect for using over your blush. It gives you just a slight sheen and is even great for wearing during the day.
If you’re timid about working with cosmetic products that contain sparkle, but you still want the look, then here’s a simple way to work with it. Use it in the form of any eyeliner. For instance, take a black shimmer eyeshadow like the one contained in the Sonia Kashuk smokey eyes makeup palette and line your eyes with it. It’s a great eyeliner style that gives you the suggestion of sparkle without being over-the-top.
Glitter makeup is a cosmetic product that can be used anytime depending on how it is applied. Try using it sparingly and then once you become accomplished at working with it, add shimmer to your favorite styles for instant enchantment.
