  • ALWAYS use cosmetic glitter when applying anywhere on the face, regular glitter could get in your eye, scratch it, and blind you
  • loose glitter will not stick unless you use some type of glitter glue, cream eye shadow, or sticky base. (Too Faced Shadow Insurance Glitter Glue, Hard Candy Glitter Glue, Mac Fix + on a brush, etc.)
  • to avoid looking like a shiny unicorn from glitter fallout all over your face, always apply glitter to the eyes first, then do your foundation, etc.
  • you can apply a loose powder under the eyes while applying your glitter so the fallout glitter will land on the powder and can easily be swept away or you could use makeup wipes to completely remove glitter from face so that you are ready for foundation
  • never sleep with glitter on your eyes, remove all glitter before you go to bed!
  • make sure that you don't go too overboard with the glitter; use it on one area at a time. If you are going to do glittery eyes, then do a matte lip and vise versa.
