The One Glitter Makeup Hack You Need To Know

Whether it's on Christmas tree ornaments, New Year's Eve decor, or your party dress, glitter is probably most common during the holiday season. Unless, you know, someone glitter bombed you, and you're still healing after the experience. If not though and you want to embrace glitter for the holidays, glitter glue is the one glitter makeup hack you need in order to really make a splash at all those holiday parties you'll be attending this year.

Around this time every year, ladies start gearing up for the holiday party circuit. The circuit is the seemingly never-ending list of office, co-worker, friend, and family parties you'll be attending at basically breakneck speeds. While everyone loves a good party, it is, at times, difficult to figure out your fashion and beauty needs for scooting around to multiple parties. Whether you're chosen to rock sensible shoes or comfy party clothes, your fashion needs can be covered all night long. However, sometimes those incredible makeup looks you've chosen to rock just can't hold up to the party hopping, especially when they're glitter-based, and let's be honest, holiday makuep tutorials are essentially all glitter. That's why glitter glue is the one glitter makeup hack you'll need to make your sparkling shadow stay in place.

That's why I've compiled a list of the best glitter pigment and best glitter glues for your holiday usage.

E.L.F Glitter Primer

Glitter Primer, $2, ELF Cosmetics

This primer workers great when packing a pressed pigment onto your lid. The formulation is super easy to blend into the skin, and it'll keep your glitter lasting through the night.

Urban Decay Bondage Weightless Makeup Adhesive

Bondage Weightless Makeup Adhesive, $19, Urban Decay

Want to prevent fallout? Place this stuff on your lids before application, and your cheeks should be glitter free. Unless you want glitter there which is also totally rad.

Too Faced Shadow Insurance Glitter Glue

Shadow Insurance Glitter Glue, $20, Sephora

This product is probably the most popular of the glues on the market. Too Faced's regular Shadow Insurance is already one of the best primers on the market, and this glitter glue is no different.

Ben Nye Glitter Glue

Glitter Glue, $5, Ben Nye

Ben Nye is essentially makeup for the stage. Can you imagine all those lights on you and no movement from your glitter shadow? Ben Nye can.

Urban Decay Heavy Metal Loose Glitter

Heavy Metal Loose Glitter, $8, All Cosmetics

How gorgeous is this festive purple pigment? I love that this gorgeous glitter also happens to be UD's signature shade.

M.A.C. Glitter

Glitter in Red, $22, MAC Cosmetics

I mean, it's MAC, and it's called glitter. 'Nuff said.

Makeup Geek Pigment

Makeup Geek Pigment in Utopia, $9, Makeup Geek

Want a more smokey glitter eye? This shade from Makeup Geek has you covered.
