For a touch of glitter, apply just along the lash line, on top of your eyeliner or, for a bit more of a standout look, try applying the glitter to the outer third of the eyelid, which will also help to make your eyes look bigger.

Start by placing the glitter on a tissue so you can better control the amount you use.

Take your brush or applicator and dip into your adhering solution, and then into your glitter.

Then, gently place the product sparingly and in small sections. You can always go back and add more if you want more sparkle.

Clean up any stray glitter that may have fallen during the application.
