Four Ways To Apply Glitter Eyeliner

1. Create A Subtle Day Look

If you’re headed to work or just want a casual day look, then you’re going to love this design!

Apply glitter eyeliner onto a clean lid by sweeping it along your upper lash line and extending it outwards to create a wing. Then, add a couple of coats of mascara to your lashes and voila, a subtle yet stylish eye look.

2. Embrace A Trending Design

For a trendy twist on the above look, why not apply glitter eyeliner onto your lower lash line instead? Add a touch of light brown eyeliner to your waterline, then finish it off with a few lashings of mascara. One of my favourite easy-to-do looks, it really makes your eyes pop.

Insider Tip: This look is particularly flattering on brown and green eyes.

3. Add Some Shimmer To Your Smokey Eye

If you’re going for a night on the town and want to go all out, why not apply glitter eyeliner over a smokey eye?

After creating a matte, brown-hued smokey eye, finish off the look with a glittery cat-eye. Simply glide it along your upper lash line and extend it outwards. For an extra glamorous touch, you can add eyeliner to the inner corner of your eye or along the outer half of your lower lash line.

4. Go Big, Go Bold

Another really popular way of wearing glitter eyeliner is to apply it above a black winged liner.

Start by drawing a strong wing using black eyeliner. Feel free to make it quite thick and bold. Next, use your glitter eyeliner to draw a straight fine line from the tip of your black wing to the inner corner of your eye. Then, fill in the space between the glittery line and the end of your black liner. It’s so eye-catching!

And there you have it, four ways to apply glitter eyeliner and create four stunning eye looks.

An American beauty brand founded in 1996, their high-quality products are all cruelty-free, vegan and made in the USA. Among them, of course, is a stunning range of glittery eyeliners. You’ll have received the Rosaline shade, a beautiful rose gold hue.

A stunning shimmery eyeliner, this makeup must-have boasts a unique formula that glides effortlessly onto your skin. All you need to do is use the fine-tipped brush applicator to create your desired look, then allow it to dry (don’t worry, it won’t take long!).
