MAKE UP FOR EVER Glitters

What it is: A versatile glitter makeup for the face and body. What it does: A catwalk just wouldn't be a catwalk without glitters. These lightweight, fine particles of bright light add glamour to any type of makeup—on the face or body. A little bit goes a long way. Just pat on the skin with a wet brush for a long-lasting effect. What else you need to know: "Sprinkle onto lip gloss in the evening to emphasize lip volume. To make glitter adhere to the body or hair, first spray these areas with water, then place a small amount glitter in the palm of your hand and gently blow onto the dampened areas."—Dany Sanz, Make Up For Ever founder

I've had problems with eyeshadow primers clumping in the past, but I found that spraying hairspray onto a Qtip, dipping/rolling it in the glitter, then rolling it along your eye is not only easy, but stays there until you want it off!

This is a loose glitter product. You'll need something tacky like the Too Faced Glitter Glue or the Sephora Collection eye primer in a pot that is meant for glitter shadows.
Please be careful with lip products on your eyes. Many ingredients meant for lips can irritate your eyes. Water is good to get the glitter to stick to your brush, but it will NOT stay on your eyes with water alone. The water will dry and it will flake away. A nice tacky base is what you need.

I put Toofaced eyeshadow insurance on first. Then I get a somewhat stiff eyeshadow brush damp, dip it in the pot, tap off the excess, then PACK on the glitter. Don't sweep the glitter or it will cause crazy fallout. Apply eyeliner and mascara and voila!

step 1) go to the dollar store.
step 2) buy lip balm.
step 3) put lip balm on eyelid.
step 4) wet your makeup brush.
step 5) dip your wet makeup brush in the glitter.
step 6) apply to your eyelid, to your desired glittery effect.
step 7) remove excess glitter with either makeup remover, or a wet q-tip.
step 8) have fun. (:

hope this helps.

Hi,

This is made to stick to a wet surface like water, as the MUFE advises. If you put it on a powder, the powder is dry so it can't adhere properly. You might need to pass on the powders, or use them as a liquid, too, by mixing water into the powders. Just remember that if you do that, the consistency of the powder will change, and so will caked powder.

Hope this helps.

I am a powder eyeshadow girl also... but i am working with the cream shadows more when using the glitter because it stays better on my eyelids. Also try adding a little water to the powder shadow if you are not wanting to do the creams just yet.

Question
How is this any different from craft glitter?
I do love shopping at sephora... but this economy has got me looking at cheaper options for the season's look. Is this different from regular craft store glitter consistency-wise? I know it comes in a lot more colors than regular glitter, but is there any other difference?

Cosmetic glitter is a lot finer than the glitter you find at a craft store and is specifically designed for cosmetic purposes. DO NOT USE craft glitter, the answer claiming it's the same is beyond wrong. Always use glitter designated for cosmetic use and no other kind-especially around your eyes where a best case scenario in terms of injury would be irritation from loose glitter and worse case would be a severely scratched cornea with possible sight loss. Cosmetic glitter is finely milled and does not have the sharp edges craft glitter does. I cannot stress this point enough.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do NOT substitute craft glitter for this. Craft glitter can be made from recycled materials and can damage your eyes. It can also be metallic - real aluminum or other particles - and they can scratch your eyes, causing a corneal abrasion or corneal scratch requiring medical attention and patching and medication. It's very painful. There are way too many variable involved in using a craft glitter. These glitters will last a long time like months if not years if used only for special events.

That said, you probably already know this but you could cut expenses by using things like drugstore eye make up remover or use products that do tmore than one thing. And I always try to find things that do dual duty, and look at palettes and kits first, because they're usually excellent deals. Also watch for samples at Sephora, and every do often there's a sale on some type of glitter product. Last year it was three full size containers (different brand) for $10.

You might want to consider a glitter liner which is more versatile than this glitter. Even the drugstores sometimes have glitter products that cost less than this but are safer to use that craft glitter.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

These are colored particles. What you see is pretty much what you get. They don't change colors like shadow. How dense you apply it may make it look slightly darker but not by much.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

glitter is bigger particles while diamond dust and diamond powder are finer particles. Some dusts and powders have the shimmer but barely look like glitter. What you choose should depend on the look you're trying to achieve.

This is made for eyes. However, be careful it doesn't fall into your eyes, because just like any other foreign body in an eye, it can irritate.

Would it be safe to put on your eyelids?
Would this be safe to put on your eyelids? And if so, how would you go about taking it off? Because I wouldn't want it to go in my eyes when I tried takin it off. I've wanted to try this before but I don't want to buy it and then not be able to use it for my eyelids because that's all I would want to use it for.

Question
Is this safe to use on eyelids?
I saw a Youtube tutorial that used glitter on their eyeshadow (not this brand) and she warned that if the particles of glitter get in your eye, it could scratch your cornea and cause eye infections or blindness.

Is this true for ALL glitter used on eyeshadow, including this glitter? In the video, she used "glitter glue" adhesive over her already-completed eyeshadow and then patted some kind of makeup glitter similar to this on a brush and transferred it onto her eyelids using the brush.

So is this glitter made to be used in the same way? I really want to buy this glitter in silver to put on over my eyes like Kat Von D does in her later episodes. But not if it will cause blindness or infections. :/

These are cosmetic grade glitters so they are eye safe. Of course you want to try to limit the amount that actually gets in your eyes as much as possible.

I have the irridescent white. I love it. I pat it over my eye shadow for a beautiful glimmer with a wet brush. I used it on a client that was going to a dance so I used a makeup glue for hers. I've also used it in a clients hair which left an amazing sparkle to her gorgeous updoo then I sprayed hairspray after to make it stay. Love it!
