    How To Apply Glitter Eyeliner

    There are a handful of ways to use glitter eyeliner. You can try it on its own, with other eyeliner, or not as an eyeliner. We want to show you our favorite way to use glitter eyeliner, so take a peek at the tutorial below!

    What you need to apply glitter eyeliner:

    1. Eye primer
    2. Concealer
    3. Glitter eyeliner

    Step #1

    Apply a blob of eye primer on each eyelid. This will help prime the eyes into a smooth surface for the concealer and eyeliner.

    Step #2

    Apply a thin layer of concealer over the lower and upper eyelids. This will help eliminate any veins under the skin. Blend it out using your fingertips or a brush.

    Step #3

    Now it’s the step you’ve all been waiting for! You can apply glitter eyeliner however you want, but we think a simple winged eyeliner is perfect. Using the glitter eyeliner, line your upper lash line.

    Step #4

    When you get to the outer corner, use your outer lashes as a guide and create a small flick of eyeliner right behind those lashes. It can go beyond them or the length of them.

    Step #5

    Draw a line of eyeliner from the tip of the wing you just created to the middle of the eye. Fill in the gap.

    There you have it, simple glitter eyeliner that looks anything but simple!
