Temptalia Asks You


What’s your favorite way to incorporate glitter into a makeup look? Share!
Temptalia's AnswerI definitely love it as eyeliner or on top of a pencil eyeliner! The other way I like it is on lips, but I prefer more micro-glitter to sparkle in size.

  1. On my lips since it’s usually less messy. So a glitter gloss is nice. Or just on my lids with eyeshadow.

  2. I like to line my eyes with a glittery or metallic liquid eyeliner. Then, because that doesn’t give much definition, I like to either tightline as usual with gel or pencil or go in with black liquid liner in a super thin line near my lashes. It’s subtle but gives some pop!

    I love using the glitter shade on tom ford’s she wolf pallet as a base close to my eyelash line and applying the matte gray over it. It just looks so polished and fun.

  4. I prefer to use glitter in eyeliner or maybe a glitter pigment if I’m going for an out there eye look. However, I can’t STAND glitter in my lip products unless it’s really finely milled.

  6. I love using Chanel’s Illusion d’Ombre in Fantasme…basically anywhere. Cheekbones, collarbones, browbones, eyelids, patted onto lipstick…it gives a wash of translicent/white/silver glitter that never looks overdone! I also find that it stays put, and doesn’t get everywhere!.

  7. loveeeeee over eyeshadow :D or in middle of the lid absolutely gorgeous :D

    It’s not exactly glitter, but I love anything which I can use for all over glow and sparkle. Other than that I use it in eyeshadow ( like some of the UD ones) and I own a couple of sparkly glosses.

    As an actual stamp on the side of the face or a tiny bit in the hair away from the face. It makes me itch if it gets anywhere near my eyes.

    On my eyelids or just under the eye (Urban Decay Heavy Metal liners) ! Fav way to play up my lips is with glitter! Gags for a glitter lip look!

  11. Honestly my FAVORITE way is as a highlight on the cheeks or body (or both!) I love the way MAC’s Reflects glitters look under bright lights when you place them on the cheekbones! SO pretty like a spaceship! :)

    On my nails definitely. I do like shadows with sparkle but it has to be very fine. And sometimes even that can be too much.

    Nails, and usually an accent finger.

    First of all, it absolutely *must* be micro-glitter, for any product. I can’t stand “chunkier” glitter, even in mail polish. Second, I will pick one feature on my face to add sparkle; if I choose eyes, then lips are kept neutral & no gloss, and if I do a glittery lip, eyes are matte & “natural”. Finally, I don’t use it on my face, lest I feel like I just stepped out of Claire’s Boutique…

    Leave it to glitter to delurk me. lol

    I love it in any form! On my eyes, my cheeks, my lips, my nails… my clothes… my makeup bag… It’s a terrible addiction. 8(
    But I think I like it on my cheeks best!

    If I rolled up in a ball and had someone to push me I could basically be a traveling disco ball. I’d be a hit at block parties.

    • OMG! “If I rolled up in a ball and had someone to push me I could basically be a traveling disco ball. I’d be a hit at block parties.”

      Funniest thing I’ve read all day :D

      Happy de-lurking!!

    As a contrast on the lower, inner portion of my lashline. For example, recently I’ve done a purple and silver smokey-esque eye and on the lower lashline it’s been warm browns and then a gold glitter liner in the inner corner

    As a liner. I like glitter but prefer just a little on myself.

  18. Very, very minimally.

    Oh, man — over the lid, for sure. One of the main reasons why I love Clarins quads so much is that they always have a gorgeous, transparent, shatter-y sort of glitter in them. There’s just something about the finish that I can’t get enough of!

    I love to pack it on as shadow, but not regularly. When done right, it’s pretty darn spectacular. Well..it makes a statement anyway.

    Liquid glitter liner, my drug! Besides NYX, I have yet to find a decent glitter liner. Well, at least in Germany. I guess there is not a demand for glitter here :-(

    For a party look, on the eyelids. I also like eyeliner, nail polish and micro-glitter on the lips.

  23. I usually wear glitter on the lid as part of an eye look. Usually Lit’s size 2 or size 1 glitters. Sometimes I’ll use them as a liner also.
