How to: Make glitters stick on your lids/skin

I got a question in my email from an anonymous reader. "What do you use to make glitters stick on your eyes?" Using them are so much fun and it adds more interest to your look. On the other hand, I hate how its gets all over the place ugh! So what do I use to make those sparkly bad boys stick? clear lip gloss! I like to apply it thinly on my lid on top of my eye makeup. I like to stay under the crease the eye to prevent creasing. Then I use a sponge tip applicator to pat on the glitters. It still gets a little messy but the outcome is worth it ^_^

My 2010 New Year look using lipgloss and bright blue glitters on  my lids :)

  11. great tip! unfortunately it doesn't really work for my lids because because my crease isn't very prominent and I'll get awful creasing. Usually I'd use mixing medium and also apply the glitter over a layer of wet eyeshadow.

  25. Gloss is a no-no for me, it ends up all over my lids! I prefer placing glitter on top of a cream shadow before it dries.
    Beautiful look, the blue glitter looks amazing!
