Glitter makeup isn’t just for little girls, festival goers, and drag queens. In our experience, a well-placed streak of sparkle does wonders for the self-confidence of any lady. Dab a little on your eyelids, paint it along your hair’s part, or go full-on glitter lips to see what happens when you stop taking makeup so seriously. Here are a few glitter go-tos for you to try.
Ease into the glitter scene with Jill Stuart’s 21 subtly sparkling shades.
Stila’s Glitter & Glow liquid eye shadow combines glitter and pearl.
Get an all-over glow with Nanacoco Professional Glitzn face and body pigment in shades of rose gold, lilac, lemon, or copper.
Mehron Makeup Precious Gem Powders can be used head to toe.
Or just keep it to the eyes only with Hipdot’s Crystals pressed glitter palette, each shade named for a precious stone.
How can we not like a brand called Unicorn Snot?! SPF 30 Glitter sunscreen goes on white and absorbs to a subtle sparkle.
Glitter nail polish can be a pain to remove, but Essence glitter On Glitter Off peels right off. It doesn’t last for days, but it’s a fun option for an evening out.
For sparkling hair (body or face), Brite’s Glitter Up Babe glides on easily and doesn’t get goopy.
