With the party season upon us, it’s the perfect time to try out one of the season’s top beauty trends that’s been breaking the Internet and taking the fashion industry by storm. Glitter eyes.
When Australian Fashion Week wrapped up earlier this year, the fabulous event left in its wake a kaleidoscope of beautiful collections, memorable moments, and new-season beauty trends that already had us dreaming of our Christmas and New Year’s parties. Now the season of fun has finally arrived, it’s time to rock out some of these sparkly looks. In particular, the glitter eyes trend.
If you haven’t been updated on the season’s latest beauty forecast, let us be the first to report that it’s raining glitter this summer – and we couldn’t be more excited! Here are three ways to wear this new sparkling trend at all your fabulous events.
Eyes Wide Open
Go beyond basic black eyeliner this season and make a glowing statement with a swoop of glitter eyeliner along your bottom lash line. Pair this look with lengthy lashes and a bold lip. For a more fun and slightly flirty look, adorn the outer corners of your eyelids with a few glitter specks.
Part ways with your dark shadow palette and bat your lashes in style with gorgeous sequinned glitter lids. Start by sweeping a metallic eyeshadow over your lids and blend well. Once done, apply a glitter primer over your lids and then get creative by sticking the glitter on. For best results, use a mixture of small and big-sized sequins to create depth.
If you prefer a slightly subtler glow, sweep a shimmery eyeshadow over your upper lids and achieve effortless glam by ditching your mascara. Instead, curl your lashes with an eyelash curler.
Brow Raising Looks
Step up your glitter game with something a little more “high brow”. To achieve a full-bodied glitter-brow, first brush your brows into place, and then apply a lash glue or glitter base to your brows with an eye shadow brush. Dip your brush into your desired choice of glitter and artfully cover your brow.
No matter the kind of brows you’re working with – full-bodied or sleek and skinny, this look is something you can easily master. Check out this YouTube Video for visual inspiration.
