Is it just me, or is everything nowadays glittered? It’s like a beauty version of the salted caramel-craze released on the world a few years ago. Don’t get me wrong I love both of these things; salted caramel is to die for and I think everything looks better with glitter, but I had never really seen the real-life applications of some of the glitter embellishments… Until now.
I have always enjoyed making my looks twinkle and some of you may remember the glitter lip tutorial I did at Christmas time. The glitter eyebrow however is something I’ve always wanted to try, so when my friend threw a faerie themed party I jumped at the chance to give it a go and thought I’d write down what I did in case any of you would like to try:
What You Will Need:
1. A clean makeup brush
2. Eyelash glue (it’s important to use a cosmetic glue that won’t cling too stubbornly to your eyebrows when it comes to clean-up).
3. Cosmetic glitter (once again it’s important to use product designed for purpose here, regular glitter is sharp and, especially when working so close to your eyes, you need to use a product that isn’t going to put you at risk of cutting yourself – no point having great eyebrows if you can’t see them because you cut your eyes)!
- (Optional) Draw in your eyebrows as usual. I didn’t bother with this step as I already have very dark eyebrows, but if your eyebrows are lighter then having them lightly drawn in can aid with packing on the glitter.
- Once you are happy with the starting point for your eyebrows, paint some eyelash glue onto a small section of your brow. It’s important to do this in small sections to give yourself enough time to add the glitter.
- Using a clean makeup brush, dab the glitter onto the glued area. Use a pressing motion, not the usual drawing motion you would use on your eyebrows as the glitter will end up everywhere but where you want it!
- Repeat these steps along the eyebrow, in small parts, until you’re done.
Glitter eyebrows are actually really easy to do once you know how and really fun to experiment with. The picture above was my first time sparkling-up, I used blue and gold glitter, and I think it went pretty well – even if I do say so myself! Now… when is it going to become an everyday trend??
