Glitter make-up is not just for kids, you too can pull it off without looking like you are going out to a teen disco.


To pull off the glitter look, follow these five tips:


Less is more

Less is always more. Don’t put glitter on your eyes and lips – it’s always one or the other.


Subtle is best

An eyeshadow with a subtle glitter is the best way to approach it. Avoid multi-coloured glitter at all costs.


Balance out the glitter

Make sure you balance out the glitter by going for neutral tones everywhere else. So if you are wearing glittery lipgloss, go for a beige or nude eyeshadow.


Don’t wear it everyday

Only keep it for special occasions. And never wear it for day time events.


Try eyeliner

If you are still feeling a little bit wary about using it go for glitter eyeliner instead. This will give you a subtle hint of sparkle without feeling too over the top.
