How To Apply Glitter Like a PRO
If you've ever applied glitter to the face or body, you are quite aware of how quickly a mess it can become. The first thing you should know is there is a difference between glitter and shimmer. Real glitter is usually a chunkier, "heavier" product that requires some type of adhesive to properly stick. Shimmer however, is much finer and smaller in shiny particle size. This type of sparkle typically does not require as much tackiness in order to attach to the skin. Though, it might require some sort of binding agent to affix and provide the desired effect and wear.
Here are some PRO tips and tricks to help get a clean, flawless application each time.

If using a chunkier glitter, also apply liquid or gel eyeliner prior to glitter to avoid uneven application and texture. If foundation has been applied first, use loose translucent setting powder without buffing into skin so that it may catch fallen glitter and not stick to face.
☆2. Dont apply mascara until glitter application is complete. This is to allow for any glitter/shimmer fallout to be removed or covered effortlessly.
☆3. Use a small to medium sized synthetic brush (flat and dense) if glitter is very thick and loose. If glitter is smaller, finer and pressed, sometimes fingers are best to get initial placement and substantial glitter payoff.
☆4.Try holding brush horizontally to insure a precise application on lid.
☆5. Tilt the client's head ever-so-slightly back (not to be held in this position too long or could cause lightheadedness and even fainting) to discourage dropping glitter on face or body.
☆6. Apply a light layer of glitter glue (NYX is my favorite) on top of shadow one section at a time. A very small amount of clear lash glue will work also but remember only apply in sections so glue doesn't dry prior to glitter application.
☆7. Spraying the brush with a light mist of MAC Fix+, Mario Badescu or Evian facial spray works well to pick up glitter. If you don't have a (CONTINUED IN COMMENTS)
