25 Easy Ways to Wear Glitter Makeup IRL

Glitter is gold when it comes to your party look. We can’t get enough of shimmering dresses, shoes and jewelry, but we especially love some shine as part of a beauty look. All it takes is a pinch of glitter to take your look from ordinary to dazzling. There’s no need for complicated smoky eyes or fussy ombre lips.

As festive as sparkle may be, it’s something that intimidates many people. If you do it wrong, it can look like a glitter bomb exploded all over. Plus, those shimmering pots of color can remind us of the questionable beauty looks we wore to middle school dances that we’d rather not remember.

If the last time you used glitter makeup was when you were still wearing butterfly clips and fuzzy hair accessories, it’s time to add it back into your makeup bag. Not only are today’s glitter formulas easier to pull off, there are also so many different ways you can wear them. Add a sprinkling of glitter to your hair, nails or face. Be bold and play around with different shades and types.
