But wearing glitter as an adult can be unnerving, especially if you have just started or are trying to get into the glitter league. Here are some tips that will help you conquer the glitter like a pro.

While glittery eyeshadows can amp up the glamour, not wearing them correctly can make you look garish. Following the ‘less is more’ rule, instead of overdosing on high-glitz eyeshadows, swipe on a metallic liner along the lash line for a head-turning statement.
Another simple way to wearing glitter on the eye is by using a dash of glitter on the inner or outer corner of the eyes. This will immediately add a sparkle to your eye makeup.
Or dab some glitter on the centre of the eyelid instead of covering the entire lids after wearing eyeshadow. It’s simple and doesn’t require any specific makeup skill. Pick up some glitter on one of your finger or rush and apply lightly on the middle of the lids. This adds a hint of sophisticated sparkle and makes your eye makeup appear 3D.
