Makeup Glitter Palettes

A glitter palette looks like a normal eyeshadow palette, but instead of including matte and shimmer shades, all the pans are filled with glitter! This is an extremely convenient way to have many colors of glitter and easily store them in your makeup collection. However, there aren't many reputable cosmetics companies that produce glitter palettes. Be careful and do your research before you buy, as some products could be low-quality craft glitter instead of cosmetics glitter.

Loose Glitter Makeup

Loose glitter is the most classic option when it comes to glitter makeup. It's sold individually in a wide range of colors. To apply loose glitter, you'll need a flat brush and a glitter glue or primer. The biggest challenge with loose glitter is that it can be extremely messy and hard to clean up. Despite the cleanup, loose glitter has the most classic "glittery" look and catches the light beautifully.

There are many companies that sell loose makeup glitter, including high-end, drugstore, and small indie brands. Some popular options include Anastasia Beverly Hills Loose Cosmetic Glitter and NYX Face & Body Glitter.

Makeup Glitter Liquid Eyeshadow

Liquid glitter eyeshadows have become increasingly popular in recent years. This product comes in a tube, similar to a lip gloss tube. You simply use the wand or a brush to apply it to your eyelid and let it dry for a pretty sparkly effect without the mess of loose glitter.

Liquid glitter eyeshadows are super fun to play with and more travel-friendly than loose glitter. However, some liquid glitters may look more shimmery or metallic than glittery. If you want the look of real glitter, sticking with the loose version is recommended. Some popular liquid glitters include Stila Glitter and Glow liquid eyeshadows and Elf Cosmetics Molten Liquid Eyeshadows.

Makeup Glitter Eyeliner

A glittery wing is a holiday party classic, and glitter eyeliner is here to deliver that look! Glitter eyeliners come in a little pot of sparkles with a brush applicator. They might need a couple of layers to achieve an opaque glitter finish. Glitter eyeliner can be applied over another eyeliner or eyeshadow, acting as a top coat. Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner and NYX Cosmetic's Liquid Crystal Liner are popular options.

Makeup Glitter Glue

When using loose glitter, you need a way to adhere the glitter particles to your eye. Many people use their eyelash glue as glitter glue, but there are products specifically designed for glitter. If you're in a pinch, eyelash glue is a great hack, but NYX Glitter Primer is recommended as an excellent base for loose glitter.

WARNING: Don't use craft glitter as makeup glitter!

It's important to distinguish between cosmetics glitter and craft glitters. Makeup glitter is fine and made from eye-safe materials. On the other hand, craft glitter is made of larger particles with rough edges that could damage your eyes. Avoid using craft glitter anywhere near your eyes. If you must use craft glitter, it's best to use it on your body for cool costume or festival looks.
