Those who think that glitter can only be worn during Carnival are wrong! If you love to shine all year round and on different occasions, this product can be your great ally in different stages of makeup.
Available in different sizes, colors and even brightness intensities, to apply glitter on the skin – and make it stay on it all day – it is essential to have a glue (it can be the one for false eyelashes, or a glitter glue) , or even a makeup fixer.
Just don’t use that school glitter in your makeup, okay? This is because the particles of these two types of glitters are completely different and the one we use in school can have larger and more rigid particles, which can cause micro injuries on the skin.
Glitter suitable for makeup can be found in the following materials: plastic, powdered seaweed gelatins, salt and even rock powder.
Ultra-fine glitter are perfect for those who love a more subtle makeup and can be a great option to apply in the inner corner of the eyes, below the eyebrows to highlight and even as an illuminator in different points of the face!
The traditional glitter and the flocked version are usually used in artistic makeup or even in productions with an emphasis on the eye area and even on the lips.
How to stick and remove glitter from the skin?
Mist: in addition to helping to fix the finer glitter on the skin, the mist also helps to enhance the shine effect of this type of glitter. Just spray the product on the skin and apply with a brush or with your fingertips the glitter in the desired region.
Eyeshadow Fixer and Glitter Glue: these products also help to enhance pigmentation and, therefore, can be used for the same type of glitter – and the glue for larger glitters as well. Apply a little bit of the product of your choice with your fingertips, patting it lightly and then apply the glitter all over the area (with your fingers, or with a cat-tongue brush).
After you’ve rocked the glitter, to remove it from your skin is super simple – it’s necessary! You can use a face oil (cleansing oil, almond oil, or the famous coconut oil) that will dissolve and make the glitter come off the skin easily.
If you prefer, you can also wet a cotton pad with makeup remover and leave it on the skin for a few seconds. This will also make the glitter loosen and “melt” easily on the skin. Bet on biphasic makeup remover or a good micellar water.
Now tell me: what’s your favorite glitter? And in which part of the makeup do you usually apply it?
