Every Glitter Product You Need to Ring in the New Year

It’s easy to continue with your go-to make up routines for New Years Eve parties, but why not try something new for the new year?! New year, new you, right? Either use all the glitter products, or just a few, whichever makes you feel most confident.

The first glitter product you’ll want is, of course, eye shadow. It’s best to use eyeshadow primer to get the most use out of your eyeshadow as it ensures that eyeshadow will stay on perfectly. The primer that you’ll find most helpful is Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion. It goes on super easy, and it’s anti-aging, which is always great to get a head start on!

Then onto the glitter eyeshadow. The products from BH Cosmetics are super glittery and amazing.  Their Glitter Collection has loose make up glitter that makes for a fun, sparkly eye. It can also be applied elsewhere on your body too!

To get the best use of this eyeshadow, after the primer, apply a base shadow to your eye. Using different shades will create a dramatic effect on your eye, using a darker gray is a great place to begin. Then take a lighter color to the inner and outer corners of your eyes. Next, use a brush to create a thin dark line across the crease of your eye. Be sure to blend it well. Now the glitter! Using a medium sized brush apply the glitter across the entire, or part, of your eyelid. This will make your look pop!

Glitter nail polish is an easy given for New Years Eve. These products can be found anywhere, but the cruelty free products I most recommend are those from NYX. They have different colored glittered polish, so you can take your pick! Nail polish adds that much needed glitter and glam, but is simple enough for any person to pull off.

The last product to use for added glitter is eyeliner. Glitter eyeliner is so unique, and eye-catching you’ll be sure to impress everyone. Urban Decay has their Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in different colors, in order to best coordinate it with your New Year’s outfit. This is a great way to add some glitter without being too dramatic!
