Last Minute Get The Look: Glitter Makeup!

Glitter makeup is always a big trend for New Year’s Eve, but don’t worry if you haven’t stocked up – allbeauty shows you last minute glitter makeup looks for hair, nails, eyes and lips, that you can get right now.

Glitter makeup is super easy and uses things you’ll have to hand. Please take care if following any of the tutorials and also use common sense!

HAIR

HAIR #1
You need: clear hair gel, pot of glitter
Method: mix a tablespoon of gel with a tablespoon of glitter (add more glitter if you want an intense look). Then apply sparingly throughout hair at the end of your styling routine.
Our top tip: wash hands immediately after application and try not to touch your hair throughout the night, or you’ll end up with glitter on your face in unexpected areas! We’ve been there… For a subtle look apply to one length of hair and plait in it like this fab example.
Here’s a quick video showing this method:

Как любую прическу легко превратить в праздничную и гламурную? Конечно, добавить блёсток! ✨🌟⚡️🌟✨ Давайте делать жизнь ярче! 🔥 Давайте отходить от правила “по будням-прямые, по праздникам-кудряшки”! 🙏🏻 Думаю, прическа с глиттером может стать оригинальным дополнением новогоднего образа! 🌟 А что думаете по этому поводу вы? #glitterhair #glitterroots #shinebrightlikeadiamond #hairstyle #newyear2017 #glitterstyle #LAmakeupstudio #блесткивволосах #блестящиекорни #тренд2017 #прически #видеопрически #видеопричесок #казань #прическанановыйгод #мамсебепарикмахер #самсебестилист #девочкитакиедевочки #блестокмногонебывает 💪🏻

HAIR #2
You need: hairspray, pot of glitter or larger glitter shapes if you feel brave!
Method: blast hair with hairspray at the end of your styling routine, then using your hand or a sieve (we’re serious!) sprinkle the glitter lightly over your hair. Blast again with strong hold spray to fix it all in place.
Use fine ground glitter for a subtle effect.

 

NAILS

 

Glitter Makeup
NAILS #1
You need: clear top coat, pot of fine glitter or larger ‘shattered glass’ pieces
Method: paint your nails with your usual colour and leave to dry. Use an old egg carton or paper plate to mix the top coat with glitter then apply quickly to your nails.
Our top tip: we admit this is horrible to get off but it’s a great way to get a glittery look on a small scale. For the ‘shattered glass’ look that sent Instagram crazy last year, click HERE.

 

NAILS #2
You need: any shimmery eyeshadow, clear varnish or top coat
Method: mix a little of the eyeshadow with the top coat and paint your nails in the usual way. This is a good way to get a matching, shimmery effect. For a full tutorial CLICK HERE

 

 

EYES


DIY Glitter Makeup
EYES #1
You need: false lashes, medium-sized glitter or glitter shapes
Method: using lash glue dab the lashes then sprinkle over glitter (note: contact lens wearers might want to skip this). For a great tutorial click HERE.

EYES #2
You need: false lash glue, medium-sized glitter or glitter shapes
Method: apply lash glue to the whole eye area, then pat on glitter shapes. Again take care if you wear contact lenses.

EYES #3
You need: false lash glue, fine glitter
Method: for glitter liner, apply lash glue carefully along the lash line then use a makeup brush to pick up the glitter and apply it to the glue. Again take care if you wear contact lenses. We love THIS LOOK.

 

LIPS


DIY Glitter Makeup

 

LIPS
You need: clear gloss or lip sealer, medium-sized glitter or glitter shapes
Method: mix the gloss – or lip sealer for a longer-lasting effect – with the glitter and apply. This works well with a bold colour such as gold or silver, but subtle shimmery eyeshadow works just as well. Need inspiration? START HERE!

 

BROWS

 

DIY Glitter Makeup
BROWS #1
You need: clear hair gel / brow fix, fine glitter
Method: mix gel or brow fix with the glitter and apply to brows, preferably with an old (clean) mascara brush or fine comb. Take care if you wear contacts!

BROWS #2
You need: cotton-bud, hairspray, fine glitter
Method: spray the cotton-bud with hairspray then quickly dip it into the glitter and apply to brows. To really fix, spray hairspray onto a finger and dab over the glitter. Take care if you wear contacts and don’t ever spray directly onto your brows. Go out with a bang with inspiration from our Pinterest board!

So there you have it, allbeauty’s DIY glitter makeup tutorials, showing you easy ways to get the glitter look on New Year’s Eve (or at any party!). If you’re going for the glitter trend, don’t forget to tag us on Instagram @allbeautyhq
