Whether we’re creating a reflective cut crease or a hypnotizing, sparkling lip, playing with glitter makeup is one of our favorite pastimes. It doesn’t matter if we’re going out, having a dance party over video chat with friends or staying in, there’s no wrong time to wear glitter. Ready to get your sparkle on? We’re sharing our favorite show-stopping glitter products to embellish our makeup looks with below.

Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Gel in Disco Day Dream

Disco Day Dream is the perfect no-mess glitter product because it’s suspended in an easy-to-use gel. You can apply this pretty much anywhere on your body; try it as an out-of-this-world highlight or on the collarbones like an accessory. 


L’Oréal Paris Brilliant Eyes Liquid Shadow

This liquid eyeshadow is flecked with high-impact shimmer and won’t budge for up to 16 hours. Add one swipe for a touch of sparkle or layer it on for some major shine.


YSL Beauty Sequin Crush Mono Eyeshadow

With social distancing still in effect, you may not have any place to wear a sequin dress to these days, but you don’t need an occasion to dress up your eyes. This mesmerizing shadow is super pigmented and packed with shimmer to resemble the high-shine finish of sequins.


NYX Professional Makeup Metallic Glitter Paillettes 

Glitter-ify your eyes, lips, face or body with this ultra-reflective loose glitter pigment. Use the brand’s Glitter Primer to keep the sparkles in place.

Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Stellar Eyeshadow

This unique gel-to-powder eyeshadow is easy to blend and then dries down to multi-faceted shimmer finish with staying power. The navy blue shade midnight is the ultimate head-turner.
