How To Wear Glitter Like An Adult

I posted an braid tutorial last week (find on my Instagram @velvetsedge) and I got SO many messages about the glitter eye make up I was wearing that day. It is really the perfect time of year for glitter and although I think glitter can be a little cheesy or tacky looking if used incorrectly, when applied correctly it’s amazing. In fact, the Zoe Report just called it one of the biggest trends this season. So if we are going to wear glitter, I think it’s important that we do it appropriately. Here are my tips on how to wear glitter like an adult…..

Other ways to wear glitter like an adult:


This is hands down my favorite product to use on body for that perfect shimmer and it SMELLS amazing too! I use a powder brush to apply it to my d├ęcolletage (chest) area and then just spray and use hands all over legs! Click pic to shop.


This product has tiny bits of gold flakes that make hair shine and look amazingly healthy. Spray on wet or dry!

I can’t 100% speak to the Kim K’s ultra light beams because I haven’t used them yet. However, in every tutorial or post I have seen, the lip colors stand out so much to me because they are the perfect mix of shimmer and subtle. Click here to check those out.
