Let Your 9-Year-Old Self Rejoice: Glitter Eyeshadow Is Back

If the word "glitter" brings back memories of messy arts-and-crafts projects or middle school sleepovers, it's time to rethink your misconceptions. On the runways this season, the sparkly stuff got a sophisticated, sexy, and grown-up makeover — specifically when it comes to the eyes — and we can't get enough of it.
At shows like Delpozo and Alice + Olivia, makeup artists created everything from graphic cat-eyes to subdued metallic lids. Whether you prefer a touch of shimmer in the inner corners or full-on dramatic smoke, there's more than enough inspiration for anyone looking to dip their toes into the look. Ahead, find our favorite glittery moments from the spring collections — ranked in order of how much shine you're willing to handle. (Don't worry — we got you.)
