Glitter Eyeshadow

There is no better time of year to use glitter eyeshadow. It can go a long way towards accentuating your makeup and your whole outfit. Many glitter eyeshadows come in gel form so once you’ve put the eyeshadow on, you may need to wait for it to dry.

If you want an extra layer of glitter, you can always reapply so each eye has 2 layers. To ensure the glitter sticks well, use a base layer eyeshadow before applying glitter.


Highlighting is a usual part of makeup routines for many people. It works to highlight your cheekbones and give you a glowing smile. If you use highlighter in your everyday makeup, it’s time to turn up the volume.

Look for highlighters with extra glitz and shine for this holiday season. It works well with glitter eyeshadow or eyeliner and adds an additional dusting of sparkle for your Christmas events.
