Party season is the perfect opportunity to indulge in your glitter makeup fantasies and go all the way with an extravagant look ready for your Christmas party. So, grab your favourite glitter colours and face embellishments to create truly fabulous face makeup for your big debut. Here are our glitter makeup ideas to try for party season:
Make a striking statement by creating a rainbow effect on your eyes if you’re feeling bold enough. Prime your eyes with a liquid primer to ensure the glitter sticks, then use a thin eyeliner brush or cotton beauty blender to apply the glitter using thin strokes.
Layer up the colours to unveil your shimmery rainbow explosion. Alternatively, if you’re not a precision glitter pro, then why not invest in some glitter eyeliners? That way you’ve got more control.
Red Glitter Lips
It’s simple but sweet. Using glitter to create an impactful lipstick. Simply choose your favourite red lipstick, then dip your finger in red glitter before dabbing it on top of your lips. The result? A sassy, glitter lipstick triumph, perfect for party season. Complete the look with strong black winged eyeliner and contoured cheekbones.
Glitter cheekbones are a classic look if you want to add a little shimmer to your usual makeup. Think of it as an extreme highlighter! You can use fine face glitter for a seamless dazzle or go all the way with chunky glitter up and around to above your brow.
Strikingly Bold Eyeliner
Eyeliner is a wonderful tool for helping you define your eyes while also shaping them. Ditch your black liner and swap it for a bright colour with glitter. Use it the exact same as you would your normal eyeliner, with a feline flick at the end for dramatic effect.
What better way to celebrate party season than with some festive eyelashes! Press some cosmetic glitter into your lash line or lower lids, being careful not to get any directly into your eyes, alternatively cover some false eyelashes in glitter before sticking them on for the night. If you’re feeling lazy then try a glitter mascara for an instant glitter look without the hassle.
Give yourself a twinkling glitter crown by sprinkling glitter through your parting. It looks best when your hair has interesting parting like this braids, or just defined centre parting. Try a dusty gold or classic silver to complement any look or even add one of our glitter headpieces!
Ok, so this trend may be a little extreme – but it has taken Instagram by storm. If you’re feeling brave, then slick your eyebrows with some vaseline or primer. Then gently dab some glitter on top for extreme hold throughout the evening.
