We stan a stunning glitter eyeliner look, whether you’re rocking it on the daily or for a holiday Zoom party. We’re talking glitter cat-eyes, glitter cut-crease lines and even glitter brow bones. If you’re intimidated by the trend and want help learning how to line your eyes with glitter, check out these five tutorials. Then, prepare to start wearing glitter eyeliner on the reg!

All That Glitters Is Gold

Here, @cutcreaser shows us how to get the coolest outer-corner cat-eye using a glittering metallic pigment by tracing her upper lash line and creating a sharp V on her outer corner. She then applies a layer of the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Liner in Midnight Cowboy on the upper lash line to complete the striking look.

Go Holographic

Trade in your typical black wing for this stunning pink holographic look by @beautybyminks. After applying a matte brown shadow, she adds an elongated wing using a color-shifting glitter and a skinny angled eyeliner brush.

Sparkling Cut Crease 

@Tyrajanea uses the E.l.f Liquid Glitter Eyeshadow in Pinky Swear and a small angeled brush to trace along her crease and outer corner, connecting it to her lower lash line. We love this take because it really switches up a regular glitter eyeliner placement. 

Glitter Brow Bone Liner

Who says glitter eyeliner can only live on your upper and lower lash lines? Mix it up and apply the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Disco Daydream on your brow bone, just beneath your eyebrow.

Seeing Double Glitter

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