Glitter Eye Shadow

omeone very wise once said, “You can never have too much glitter.” For the most part, we’re inclined to agree. Unfortunately, the glitzy, glittery eye shadow of our teen years came with a few drawbacks—namely, the tendency to leave a trail of shimmer everywhere, from our cheeks and our clothes to every surface we touched. After just one day of sparkly eye makeup, we’d be finding flecks of shimmer for weeks, and the experience left us more than a little glitter gun-shy.

Cue Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow, a cream eye shadow with super-shiny pearl and glitter pigments that glide over eyes with the flick of a wand. Unlike loose glitter, there’s no flaking or fallout—once it dries down, it locks into place until you take it off. To help you ease back into the world of glitter eye makeup, we put together a quick tutorial with this shimmery superhero and a few of our other Stila favorites.

What You’ll Need:

• Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in Bronzed Bell

• Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in Molten Midnight

• Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner in Intense Black

• Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Dolce

 

Step 1.

Apply Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in Bronzed Bell, a bronze loaded with silver and copper glitter, to the center of your eyelid. You can dab the wand applicator directly onto your skin, or tap an eye shadow brush onto the wand to pick up the product. Using a blending brush, blend the eye shadow all over your eyelid before it dries down.

Step 2.

take an eyeshadow brush and tap it on the wand of Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in Molten Midnight, a deep black with silver and gold sparkle. After you pick up some product, make a few dots along the crease and outer corner of your eye.

Step 3. 

To complete the look, draw a thin line of Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner in Intense Black along your upper eyelashes to add definition. Curl your lashes, apply your favorite mascara, and finish with a natural nude lip that won’t steal the spotlight from your flashy lids.
