The Prettiest Ways to Wear Glitter Makeup

Dip into a pot of glitter to make a high impact beauty statement. Spotted on the Spring 2017 Ready-to-Wear runways at Maison Margiela, Fendi, and Giamba, a fearless dose of glitter is the easiest way to amp up the glamour.

Glitter can be applied in a variety of different ways. Let your lips do all the talking with a glitter-pressed pout. First spotted on the Atelier Versace Fall 2016 runway—and then at the Fendi and DKNY Spring 2017 shows—bedazzled lips are picking up speed both on and off the catwalk. If you didn’t successfully nab Pat McGrath’s Lust 004 Lip Kit (it did sell out within days), you can recreate the look by gently pressing sparkly flecks into a creamy lipstick using your finger or a flat brush. For a subtler take on the trend, trace a metallic highlighter along your Cupid’s bow, or, reach for a tube of light-catching lipgloss.

Those feeling starry eyed can pair their cream eyeshadow with a single fingerprint of silver particles at the inner corner of the eyes for a subtle shimmer; or, turn a cat-eye up a notch by eschewing traditional liquid liner for a thick, gold flick. Dip an angled brush into eyelash glue (yes, it really works) to pick up your glitter flecks and draw a neat wing close to your lash line.
