How to paint with glittering shadows

How to paint with glittering shadows is the topic of today’s post. Shiny shadows are not easy shadows. They need their own approach. I’ll tell you about it.

To learn how to paint with glittering shadows, you need to analyze the procedure.

Shiny shadows are always about the foundation. They need a base that will hold the glitter in their eyes. Not everyone understands this, which is why they experience difficulties with application.

Therefore, before proceeding with the step-by-step makeup, decide the question – what will I attach the glitter to.

You have two options and both are about application speed.

Sequins need a tacky surface. To create it, you need either a base under the eyeshadow or special glue for glittering eyeshadows.

Those who choose a base under the eyeshadow should apply glitter at the very beginning of makeup in the first 10 seconds, until the base has time to dry, becoming dry.

And if you decide to work with glitter glue, as I did, then you can repeat everything exactly as in today’s lesson – apply glittering shadows at the very end of the makeup.
