As the ball drops, make your mark with this fun glitter makeup tutorial!
OK, we may be slightly glitter obsessed this season…glitter hair, a sequin soaked face…what’s one more sparkly makeup tutorial? Glitter lips and brows is where it’s at. It’s over the top and totally glam, but seems appropriate for, say…NYE? Yes, please.
If you’re stumped on how to make your mark this new year, this tutorial should solve all your problems. Follow along as we direct you to your inner glitter girl!
First, prep the face. Here’s what we used:
Foundation: MAC Studio Sculpt + Face & Body
Concealer: Bye Bye Under Eye
Powder: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish
Bronzer: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish
Blush: MAC Warm Soul
For the Brows
Brow pencil: MAC Stud
Glue: Duo latex glue
Glue Alternative (not used in this tutorial): Snazaroo Face Paint Glitter gel
Glitter: MAC pigment, or any glitter you like!
Fixative: Fix +
Step 1: Apply brow pencil lightly to the brow for definition in the area you’re working.
Step 2: Use a flat synthetic brush to apply latex glue to the brow, working in sections. Note: it’s important not to use a natural hair brush because the glue will damage the bristles; this glue dries fast so be sure to work in small sections to avoid clumps.
Step 3: Pat glitter onto glue in thin layers.
Step 4: Once finished, line brows with concealer to clean up.
For The Lips
Lip Liner: Whirl
Lipstick: MAC Blankety
Glitter (We used an iridescent one from the local craft store.)
Step 1: Apply lip moisturizer and blot with a tissue.
Step 2: Apply lip liner on and around the lip, then apply lipstick of choice.
Step 3: Clean up around the lip with an angled brush and concealer/foundation.
Step 4: Apply a lipgloss (preferably one with a thick texture).
Step 5: Pat glitter on lips with a synthetic brush.
Get creative with your glitter colors. We even added a few tiny stars for more fun!
Step 6: Clean up excess glitter around the lips with an angled brush and some concealer.
Voila! For a bold look, the glitter brows and lips can be worn together. To keep it more simple, wear separately. Up to you!
