You can't go wrong with glitter, and Halloween is the perfect excuse to wear it everywhere. Plus, it's quick and easy to apply when you're down to the wire. Whether you're going out as a mermaid, rockstar, or fill-in-the-blank goddess, you'll want to grab some sparkly stuff and take notes.
If your glitter doesn't have a strong base to adhere to, it's going to stick to everything but your face. (Seriously, your bathroom counters will never be the same again.) So choose a cream eyeshadow in a similar color family as your glitter and apply it to your entire lid. We used Maybelline Color Tattoo Eye Chrome in Bronze Sheen.
Next, dip your index finger into some loose glitter and dab and roll it onto your eyes. You can go with craft-store glitter or opt for the cosmetic variety.
As you move onto your cheeks or other areas of the face, make sure you prep with an emollient lotion first. Then, pat on your glitter and mist everything with a setting spray.
