The festive season is upon us, which means it’s time to stock up on glitter eyeshadow to elevate your makeup look. This means one thing and one thing only: swapping out your usual eyeshadow for some bright metallic and shimmery shades and celebrate the arrival of the new year in style.
Of course, neutral and nude matte shades are timeless and will always deserve a spot in your makeup drawer. But sometimes, the occasion calls for something that’s a bit extra – and that’s exactly where glitter eyeshadows come in.
But we get it – it can be intimidating trying to figure out which of the best glitter eyeshadows is right for you. Do you want something super pigmented and colourful or are you after a more subtle metallic look?
Whatever it is you want, it’s important to really just embrace that touch of shimmer with open arms, even if you’re known to opt for a sophisticated edge to your look. To keep things balanced do subtle applications, or pair with neutral tones.
Less is not always more, but to play it safe, when it comes to glittery eyeshadows, a little does go a long way. Choose one focal point for your glitter, allowing it to accentuate without it all getting a bit too overwhelming. But most importantly, just have fun with it.
