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.

I put Some powder eye shadow on a little bit of lip balm on my lids. Just to warn you don't use Burt's bees lip balm to put it on.

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.
