My Tips

  1. The most important thing is to use an adhesive or tacky base of some kind. There are several on the market, from Fyrinnae’s Pixie Epoxy to Too Faced Glitter Glue, that you can try.  Creamy, tackier products can sometimes help, too, depending on the amount of glitter (e.g. may be good enough for a sparkly eyeshadow but not enough for loose glitter).  Loose glitter is best with a glitter adhesive like Lit’s.
  2. After getting product on your brush, lightly tap against the jar/pan/vessel to let any loose product fall, and then pat on lid, not sweep.  Pat gently but firmly on the lid.
  3. You can always use a business card underneath the eye to catch fall out, or do your base makeup after eyes, so you can use makeup remover to remove anything from the initial application.
