Makeup with glitter shadows – a step by step photo tutorial

Makeup with glittering shadows

To show you how to do makeup with glitter eyeshadow, I had to decide which glitter eyeshadow I would use. I found these in the Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette and this is what came of it …

Remember one simple truth – makeup with glittering eyeshadows is impossible without a backing. Thanks to her, you kill two or three birds with one stone at once: durability, intensity, trouble-free application of eyeshadows with a shiny coating.

Therefore, I recommend using a pencil to replace the base under the shadow. With its help, brilliant shadows will unfold in all their glory. The darker the color of the background, the deeper the overflow, and vice versa, the lighter the background, the more transparent the shadows.

How to do makeup with glittering eyeshadow

I painted over the entire movable eyelid with PUPA Intense Smoky Eye Pencil – 001 Deep Black. He will be the base under the shadow.

With a flat brush, I applied “Lithium” from the Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette. They literally stick to the eye with eyeliner. Therefore, the shedding of shadows is minimized.

I brought the arrow through the lower eyelid to the temple, working with burgundy shadows. And then I drew a line from above, connecting it to the bottom of the arrow. Such a sequence – to draw an arrow from the lower eyelid – is convenient for those who are just learning to draw arrows. This training with shadows will help you understand at what angle the arrow should go.

To color the crease of the eyelid (there is no need for glitter), I used Make up store Microshadow – Plateau in a muted green shade. The squirrel brush helps to create a subtle shadow that looks very natural from a distance. You can, of course, work on the fold more intensively, but I considered it superfluous due to the activity of the lower eyelid.

I highlighted the inner corner with glittering shadows from the same palette – Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette.

The mucous membrane was worked with a persistent pencil Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadows.


The scheme is simple if you choose shiny shadows as an accent. Any other pigment will work too, but only the eyeshadows from the Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette can shimmer and sparkle.
