This year’s best glitter eyeshadow looks can be summed up in one word: FUN! As much as we love low-key and natural looks, makeup maximalists are still taking the spotlight and will continue to for the rest of the year. Even if you aren’t bold with your makeup, these trends will give you the excuse to start experimenting with colours and textures.
The team at Lick And Lash Beauty believe that more is more, and it’s all about mixing and matching the fun stuff like rainbow pallets, sleek pigments, bright neons, glossy textures and lots of sparkle. So ladies and gentlemen, pull out your multi-shade glitter pallets and your coloured liners, let’s play!
Perfect For: Summer Festivals
Just because you can’t go to a festival this summer, doesn’t mean you can’t bring the festival to you! With Coachella usually kicking off the festival season with some of the most intricate, dazzling and quite simply, beautiful, glitter eyeshadow looks we have *ever* seen, it's time to take our festival makeup game to the next level, because, let's get real, festival beauty is almost as important as the music itself.
Try our Minty Pigment, a stunningly smooth shimmer that reflects luscious shades of green, which will perfectly compliment any face and body art that you want to experiment with. We also have a light blue metallic Aqua Pigment with subtle hints of molten gold and silver, giving you the ultimate reflective finish, perfect for a spotlight eye.
Both of these loose pigments are long-lasting and super blendable, ready for an easy application with either a dry or wet brush. You can also use your fingers depending on the desired final look. Simply gather a small amount of the product and gently sweep over your eyes or body, then blend out using a small brush.
Tip: We love using a small makeup brush and dotting this in the inner corners of your eyes for a fun, reflective look to make your eyes pop. Perfect for holiday or festival season!
Perfect For: Eyes To Kill
Do you know what’s better than eyeshadow? Metallic eyeshadow. This season is all about the shimmer and adding molten metal to your eyelids and we are here for it. With our editor-approved selection of loose glitter eyeshadow pigments, these glimmering, mirror-like formulas are so smooth and full of texture, you’ll be blinding the haters with every blink.
Perfect for a spotlight eye, this Sunbeam Pigment pigment eyeshadow is a super-finely milled metallic shimmer pigment that reflects gold and yellow tones.
Are pinks and purples more your shades? Our Babe Pigment will give you that same rock-chick, metallic glitter eyeshadow look, but with pretty-in-pink feels. Applying this popping, rose-ready pigment will dial up any look, giving you a totally mesmerising result to dazzle and delight!
Perfect For: Ombre Trend
There are a time and a place for delicate shimmer, but it’s not here and it’s not now. This playful and bold look will let you wear any colour or texture that you fancy, making it perfect for a summer bash in place of your annual visit to Glastonbury.
Our Rainbow Rhythms Palette is ideal to achieve this look because it has all the colours of the rainbow with varied shades of each colour in a mix of matte, shimmers, semi-matte shimmers and six pressed glitter eyeshadows in creams. The sky really is the limit and this type of application is super easy to use.
All you have to do is prep your lids with an eyeshadow primer, then take your favourite sparkly shadow and tap in onto your inner corners. Then comes in your second shade, taking centre stage in the middle of your lid, followed by the third colour of your choice on the outskirts.
Perfect For: Dreamy Eyes
Blue glitter eyeshadow looks are stunning for all boys and girls and adding a layer of gold will make it look even more alluring. Perfect for any evening party, this look will have heads turning.
For a dazzling blue smokey eye look to mesmerise and hypnotise, discover our Sky Pigment, which is perfect for anyone who wants to experiment with the magic of colour, but it looks especially dreamy on brown-eyed beauties who want to make their eyes pop and sparkle.
