I absolutely adore glitter eyeliners, but the brands that make them are a bit too pricey for my budget.
One of the most affordable glitter eyeliners is Essence’s Crystal Eyeliner but the glitter in those liners are tiny and are more suitable to be worn in the day rather than at night. I wanted a liner that is super cute, not overdone but that still makes a statement, so I decided to create my own. And here’s how:
All you need is:
A tube of transparent, gel mascara
A glitter pot in any colour
A skinny, eyeliner brush
Before you begin, ensure that the eyeliner brush is clean and dry. Wash away any leftover product with some baby shampoo or makeup remover and then dry it off with a paper towel.
Dip the brush into the tube of mascara, ensuring that the bristles are thoroughly coated with the gel.
Now dip the brush into the pot of glitter. Go for a little bit of glitter at a time, if you overload the glitter it will make the task of applying it as eyeliner much more difficult. Just tap off any excess glitter into the pot or cap.
Apply to eyes (or hand in my case :P)
Please note that I have used glitter that consists of larger flakes due to the fact that if it gets into the eyes, it will be easier to remove than the mini flakes. Also note that no glitter is 100% safe to use on your eyes, so please be super, duper careful when applying – we wouldn’t want any trips to the ER now would we?
