Sporting glittery makeup is a huge summer trend and we're here with some amazing looks to try! If you're looking to take your eyeliner to next level, then check out these crazy eyeliner looks to get you started. Whether you're going for a subtle accent or are looking for that next level glam we're here to make you sparkle!
Probably the easiest and quickest way to incorporate glitter to your look is with glitter eyeliner. There's so many different ways of rocking this look!
One of the most recent trends we've seen is adding glitter to the inner 1/2 of the crease for a semi cut crease effect. It's simple, adds that instant glam factor and creates the illusion of a cut crease without having to actually "carve" out the crease (which usually takes quite some work and effort).
You can add a soft wash of color to the entire lid for a soft contoured look and then create bold statement liner with a thick stripe of glitter liner. If you're up for it, create an extended wing to add a bit more drama.
If you're a fan of this statement glitter liner look, yet prefer a bit of dimension to the upper lashline, add a tiny amount of dark or black liner on just the outer edge or outer wing so the glitter doesn't completely wash out your look.
Another recent trend is the graphic glitter liner look which is the same concept as the look above (beginning with a soft wash of color across the entire lid and adding glitter to the upper lashline) but creating the outline of black or dark liner and then filling it in with glitter.
You can create a thin swipe of liner for a more subtle effect or a thicker swipe for a more dramatic effect.
This creates an instant graphic eye which is bold, fierce, edgy and glam all at the same time. Add lashes for that extra oomph and wow factor.
Add metallic or glitter liner to the entire crease for the glitter cut crease look and pair with your regular dark liner for an insanely sharp and beautifully carved cut crease! Clean up and perfect the edges with a synthetic brush and concealer.
Add some pizzazz to your glitter cut crease and extend the inner and outer corners for a fun flair and instant graphic appeal. These subtle, little details add so much fun and interest to the look.
Combine trends by adding glitter to the entire crease for a glitter cut crease and also adding it to your upper lashline and connecting the edges for an edgy, graphic look.
Cut Crease Graphic Glitter Liner
For a bold look, you can first add your regular dark, black liner, then add the glitter liner adjacent to the dark liner for a double winged liner effect.
Play around with the glitter cut crease graphic look by trying different color palettes and even combining a few shades of glitter! You get an instant pop of color with a fun, whimsical touch.
DuoTone Graphic Cut Crease Liner
You can see in this next example how color and placement make all the difference when creating a look! This negative cut crease incorporates a blank or "empty" lid space so the cut crease and liner really make a statement. The aqua hued glitter was added over shadow in the crease for an iridescent effect and then layered over the dark blue liner on the lashline which looks completely different because of the dark base. So keep in mind, glitter pops more on a dark base! The look is still graphic and glitzy yet looks unlike any of these other looks!
Amp up your glittery cut crease by filling in your everyday dark liner. You can see how different this looks from the looks above which were just applied on the upper lashline. So play around with different eyeliner shapes to see what look works for you!
Take the glitter cut crease look to next level by incorporating large glitter or rhinestones for a fun, bedazzled look.
Don't just limit yourself to the glitter cut crease or the upper lashline! Play with complimentary colors and explore different, fun ways of adding glitter to your look like the lower lashline.
