5+ Iconic Ways to Wear Glitter Eye Makeup

Each makes a statement with every blink.

From Allure.

In January "All About Eyes" issue — our first of four "beauty guides" in 2018,  we wanted to explore fresh ways to wear sparkle in the new year. And makeup artist Emi Kaneko certainly delivered with the freshness. She broke out unexpected materials (pearls and paillettes) and played around with placement (rainbow glitter encircling the eyes and dashes of shimmer peeking out behind lashes). The following nine glittery makeup looks aren't the shimmer of sweetness and fairies. It’s assertive, maybe even a little subversive.

Perfect Paillettes

Silver eyes, soft lips, can’t lose.

Lancôme Grandiôse Liner in Silver Snow, $32 (Shop Now), and Lancôme Rouge in Love lipstick in Delicate Lace, $29 (Shop Now).

On Florence Clapcott: Sequined top by Marc Jacobs. Jeans by Brock Collection.

Eye Power

Metallic makeup exists on a spectrum. On one end, lids layered with multiple metals for sultry drama.

Yves Saint Laurent Full Metal Shadow in Dewy Gold, $30 (Shop Now), and Yves Saint Laurent Full Metal Shadow in Taupe Drop, $30 (Shop Now).

Cigaline dress and top by Prada.

Eye Power

A sliver of strategically placed shine for a wink.

Mineral Spirit

Whoever said glitter was for nighttime was just wrong. Wrong, wrong. Go heavy and keep the clothes neutral.

Nars Hardwired Eyeshadow in Parallax, $26 (Shop Now), Nars Hardwired Eyeshadow in Stud, $26 (Shop Now), and Nars Audacious Mascara, $26 (Shop Now).

Rainbow Bright

A smattering of multi-colored glitter around the eyes creates a playful, kaleidoscope effect.

On Nova Orchid: Knit top by Missoni.

Bold in Beige

A good makeup rule of thumb: If you can wear it with an earthen-hued short suit, you can wear it with anything.

Suede jacket, lace top, suede shorts, and suede boots by Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh.

Fresh Pearls

If Jane Austen were a makeup artist: pure, unbridled romance.

Chanel Stylo Sourcils Waterproof Eyebrow Pencil in Brun Clair, $33 (Shop Now), and Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo Lipshine in Script, $37 (Shop Now).

Linen bustier and lace top by Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh.

Precious Metals

This is the one time it’s OK to go for silver (or bronze).

L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Petite Perle, $5.99 (Shop Now), and L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche lipstick in Glossy Fawn, $9.99 (Shop Now).

Knit sweater and embellished dress by Christopher Kane. Lace top by Marc Jacobs.

Precious Metals

A sheer layer of platinum across the lids and silver glitter through the brows gives us serious '80s vibes without feeling dated.

Revlon ColorStay Crème Eyeshadow in Praline, $8.49 (Shop Now), Revlon ColorStay Crème Eyeshadow in Earl Grey, $8.49 (Shop Now), and Revlon Kiss Plumping Lip Crème in Cashmere Crème, $9.99 (Shop Now).
