Temptalia’s Tips

  1. It’s more about the adhesive/base/medium you use with the glitter that will make or break it. Most glitters are not designed to adhere on their own!  You want a sticky base–my favorite is Lit Cosmetics’.
  2. Use a flat, firm brush without a lot of fluff, and then pat on the glitter where you want it. Avoid sweeping, which can cause fall out.
  3. You can use glitter liquid eyeliner painted over eyeshadow and the like to avoid the hassle of adhesives!
