Glitter Glam: A Guide to Sparkling on New Year’s Eve

New Year’s Eve calls for all things glamorous, and what better way to shine than with glitter? Whether you’re aiming for a subtle shimmer or a full-on sparkle, mastering glitter can elevate your New Year’s Eve look to dazzling heights. Here’s your ultimate guide to incorporating glitter for a show-stopping entrance into the new year.

Types of Glitter

Glitters come in various forms, from fine to chunky, loose to pressed. Understanding the different types can help you choose the right one for your desired look:

Loose Glitter Fine or chunky glitter in a jar or loose form. Ideal for detailed application.
Pressed Glitter Glitter pressed into pans or compacts, offering convenience and easy application.
Glitter Gels Gel-based glitters perfect for face and body, providing a mess-free application.
Glitter Liners Precise glitter application in the form of eyeliner pens or brushes for defined looks.

Glitter Makeup Ideas

Glitter Eyes

Apply a glitter primer or adhesive to your eyelids. Use a fine brush or fingertips to gently pat loose glitter onto the primer for a sparkling eye look.

Sparkling Lips

Dab a small amount of clear gloss or lip balm onto your lips and gently press fine glitter over the top for a mesmerizing, glittery pout.

Glitter Highlight

Mix loose glitter with a liquid highlighter and apply it to the high points of your face—cheekbones, brow bone, and cupid’s bow—for an ethereal glow.

Body Glitter

Use a glitter gel or body adhesive to apply glitter to your collarbones, shoulders, or décolletage for a radiant, glamorous body shimmer.


Tips for Applying Glitter

  • Always use a glitter primer or adhesive to keep the glitter in place without fallout.
  • When applying loose glitter, gently pat it onto the primer instead of swiping to minimize fallout and ensure better adherence.
  • Use fine brushes or specific applicators designed for glitter application for detailed looks.

Precautions and Removal

  • Be cautious when applying glitter near the eyes to prevent irritation. Use cosmetic-grade glitters approved for use on the face and body.
  • Use makeup remover wipes or a gentle cleansing oil to remove glitter, allowing the product to break down before wiping it away.

Glitter is the ultimate way to add sparkle and glamour to your New Year’s Eve makeup. There are countless ways to incorporate glitter into your look, from eyes to lips and even body shimmer. Remember to choose the right type, use primer for better adhesion, and handle it carefully. With these tips, you’re all set to shine and welcome the new year in sparkling style!
