Smita Pandit
Just a dash of glitter eyeshadow can certainly complete the party look, while going overboard can be a fashion disaster. This write-up provides instructions for applying it properly.
Putting on the right kind of eye makeup can accentuate your beauty. If you want a glam look for an evening party, you can apply a glitter eyeshadow. The market is flooded with glitter eyeliners, eyeshadow, and mascaras that can help you achieve a subtle look or the disco diva look.
Glitter Eye Makeup
First of all, you need to select the right eyeshadow palette that will accentuate your eyes.
Don't make a hasty decision, take your own sweet time to see which color will enhance your looks. Your eye makeup should be attention-grabbing in the right way. A wrong color selection and wrong method of application can make you look very garish. So, use a shade that goes well with your skin tone and the color of your eyes.
Gold, silver, green, purple, peach, orange, crystal white, iridescent, and several other colors are available. You just need to select one that complements your outfit. You can also combine your eyeshadow with glitter pencils, liners or gels that have micro glitters, and mascaras to create a dramatic effect.
Applying Eyeshadow
The eye makeup needs to be applied properly. You must not go overboard. Those who don't apply it in the right manner might end up with glitter all over the face. Moreover, the particles can cause irritation in the eyes. All your hopes of having a gala time will go down the drain if that happens. You need to be more careful if you are a contact lens wearer.
To avoid all these problems, follow these instructions:

✤ Before applying makeup, clean your face and wipe it with a soft cloth.
✤ After applying the foundation evenly, apply a neutral-color gel-based eyeshadow. You could use beige, creme, or white color.
✤ Applying foundation and eyeshadow is necessary. This is to ensure that the glitter doesn't get smeared all over your face.
✤ Apply the eyeshadow on your eyelids, and use a brush to spread the glitter from the middle portion of the upper eyelid towards the outside corner of the eyelids.
✤ Make sure that the glitter is kept away from the inner corner of the eye.
✤ Use it in moderation to avoid looking garish.
✤ You can also use a mascara dipped in a glitter powder and curl your eye lashes to get the perfect evening look.
Follow the aforementioned instructions to accentuate your eyes, and get ready to make heads turn!
