Shimmer Glitter Eyeshadow: The Best Way to Elevate Your Eye Looks

December 25, 2023

When it comes to stunning makeup, eyeshadows are an essential product. They allow you to create mesmerizing looks and make your eyes pop. Among the many available options, shimmer glitter eyeshadow is one of the most popular ones. It’s sparkly, glamorous, and super versatile. It also makes the difference between a dull look and a fabulous one. If you’re new to shimmer glitter eyeshadow or just want to learn more about it, here’s what you should know!

 

What Is a Shimmer Glitter Eyeshadow?

Shimmer glitter eyeshadow is the kind of eyeshadow that has reflective particles to catch the light. Now, shimmer eyeshadow and glitter eyeshadow are two separate things. On one hand, shimmer eyeshadow contains smoother particles, so the finish is also very smooth. They’re a bit more subtle, but they still shine, and they work really well for smokey eyes or evening looks.

Glitter eyeshadow, on the other hand, has larger and less smooth particles. As such, the texture is different and the finish is a lot more sparkly. Glitter eyeshadow will sparkle a lot, making your eye look a bit more fun, dramatic, and attention-grabbing. Usually, glitter eyeshadows will have chunkier particles, but they’re still very comfortable on the eye. They’re a perfect way to create vibrant looks and they catch the light very effectively.

 

How to Apply Shimmer Glitter Eyeshadow?

The application process will depend on whether you’re using a shimmer eyeshadow or a glitter eyeshadow. So, let’s explore both alternatives individually:

 

● How to Apply Shimmer Eyeshadow

 

1. Prime the Eyelids

The first step in the process is to prep your eyelids, so make sure you have a good eyeshadow primer. This will be the base for the eyeshadows and it will make them stick to the lids more effectively. If you want a long-lasting eyeshadow look, you can’t skip the primer.

We also recommend that you moisturize your eyelids with a nice eye cream before you get ready. Leaving the eye cream on for a few minutes before starting your makeup can go a long way.

 

2. Apply a matte base

The second step in the process is to apply a matte base. Shimmer eyeshadow is shiny, but it’s not super sparkly. So, you can help it shine a lot more if you use a matte eyeshadow under it. Make sure it’s a similar shade to the shimmer eyeshadow so they can blend perfectly.

 

3. Bring on the shimmer

Last but not least, apply your shimmer eyeshadow. You can do this using the tips of your fingers and then go in with a fluffy brush to blend it out. Add as many layers as you need until you achieve the desired shimmery look. Then, all you have to do is clean up any fallout under the eye and continue with the rest of your makeup.

A shimmery eyeshadow can look great on its own with a nice eyeliner and mascara. However, you can also do smokey eyes and other looks with this eyeshadow. It’s just a matter of personal style!

 

● How to Apply Glitter Eyeshadow

 

1. Prime and prep for fallout

Working with glitter eyeshadow is very similar, but it can be a bit messier. After you apply primer to your eyelids, we recommend putting on some under-eye masks. They will catch any fallout from the eyeshadow and also hydrate your eyes while you do your makeup.

 

2. Apply a matte eyeshadow

Once the primer is in place, you just have to apply your glitter eyeshadow. Usually, glitter eyeshadow is used as an addition to an eye look. So, make sure the shade matches the eyeshadow it’s going over. If you’re just using the glitter eyeshadow, we still recommend putting a layer of regular eyeshadow under it. Make sure the shades are similar.

 

3. Add the glitter

You can use your finger to apply the glitter eyeshadow and press it gently on your eyelid. But if you want to be more precise, you can use a flat-headed brush to dab the glitter on and press gently. You don’t want to sweep your finger or brush, that’s just going to make a mess. Dabbing and a little gentle pressure will go a long way.

Lastly, you just have to remove the under-eye masks and clean up any remaining fallout. Also, don’t forget to apply setting spray! This will keep the glitter in place for as long as you need it to!

 

Makeup Tips for Shimmer Glitter Eyeshadow

If you’re new to shimmer glitter eyeshadow and you’re intimidated by it, consider these tips:

 

● Start small and work from there. You don’t have to go all out with your shimmer glitter eyeshadow look. Start with a small amount of product and work from there. Shimmer glitter eyeshadow is buildable, so you can add as many layers as you need to.

 

● Pair it with matte eyeshadows. As mentioned before, using matte eyeshadows as a base will make the shimmer glitter eyeshadow pop more. It will also give the look more dimension and sharpness. Make sure the shade is similar and blend the matte eyeshadow well.

 

● Consider the time and place. Shimmer glitter eyeshadow can work well for daytime and nighttime looks. It’s only a matter of creating the right eye look for the occasion. So, consider the time and place to decide if you should go for a subtle, simple look or something more dramatic and bold.

 

● Always prepare for fallout. It doesn’t matter how much you practice your shimmer glitter eyeshadow looks, there will always be fallout. Whether the fallout is minimal or not will depend on the formula. However, you can expect a bit of a mess. So, prepare for it. Do your eye makeup before the foundation and use under-eye masks or even face tape to make the clean-up easier.
