3. Never go in for unbranded glitter. Unbranded glitter may be easy on the pocket, but may have sharp edges which irritate the skin or injure your eyes if they get into them accidentally.


4. If you are using glitter in powder form, ensure that your skin is not sensitive to the cream base used to fix the glitter coat.


5. Never brush on glitter as it may smear.


6. Always keep the eye brow color as light as possible.


7. Keep the shade of lipstick and blush subtle if you are planning to go heavy on glitter eye shadow.


8. With glittery eyes, stick rhinestones at the outer corners of the eyes for a diva look.

Ensure all eye make up is removed with a good quality eye make up remover.
