Anyone who has worked with glitter before knows what a pain in the a** it can be! So I feel above all else, this look is a technical achievement indeed. Here's a few key tips for how I achieved this look:

  • Do the brows and crease first. Then go back in and "cut" the crease with black eyeshadow. This will help wipe away any excess glitter on the crease and create a more precise line
  • After I "cut" the crease with shadow, I went in with MAC Blacktrack, a gel liner and a small angled brush to make the line even sharper
  • You will have to glob the liquid liner on over the glitter. You're essentially painting over the glitter, so don't be shy with the liner, you want to make sure it's all covered!
