We love a stunning glitter eye look, especially for the holidays. We’re talking glitter reverse cat eyes, glitter cut creases and more. If you’re intimidated by the trend and want help learning how to line your eyes with glitter, check out these five inspo-worthy looks from Instagram.

Classic With a Twist

Trade in your typical black wing and opt for a reverse cat eye — complete with stunning black sparkles — for a fresh, festive take on a classic. Check out our reverse cat eye tutorial here.

Sparkling Wing 

@makeupbyliz1013 amps up a bold cut crease by adding a glittery wing from her inner corner to her outer corner. Get the look by dipping a small angled brush into a glittery eyeshadow (we love the (Valentino Dream Dust Glitter Eyeshadow in Go For Gold) and dragging it carefully along the lash line, forming a wing.

All That Glitters

Here, @glambyfnda shows us how to get the coolest graphic eye look with green glitter. Using a glittering metallic pigment, like the Valentino Beauty Dreamdust Glitter Eyeshadow in Emerald Queen, she traces her upper lash line and creates a sharp V on her outer corner.

Glitter Cut Crease

Make like @majda_zabz and add extra glitz to a glam look by tracing your crease with gold sparkles. Bonus: dust some glitter on your inner corner and along your lower lash line to really make your eyes pop.  

Seeing Double Glitter

This look by @nadgbeauty shows you how to get creative with glitter on both the upper lash line and the crease. She draws two separate lines — one following the crease and the other lining her upper lash line — with icy blue glitter for a double-take worthy look.
