So you’ve decorated the tree, dressed the turkey, had the family over and drunk and laughed throughout the holidays. Now it’s all over and, in the case of the tree, probably still waiting to be packed up and stored away for next year. But there’s something else pressing to garner your attention – your New Years Eve plans and the makeup you’ll be wearing for it!

Let’s take inspiration from this editorial for Elle by Erwin Olaf. This editorial reminds us that there is one night a year that lets you wear as much glitter as you want, but how to get that glitter to stick?

Here’s a few tips on how to achieve glitter wearing mayhem!

Use what you already have in your kit:
• Eyelash adhesive.
• Sprinkle on still wet mascara for a subtle sparkle.
• Petroleum jelly.

Things specifically for adhering glitter:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance Glitter Glue Bonding Eyeshadow Primer.
Cinema Secrets Hollywood Lights “Tacky”.

Products with glitter built in:

Sephora Collection Glitter Cream Eye Shadow Set.
Graftobian Glitter Glam Liquid Sparkle.

My favorite glitter brands:

Make Up For Ever Glitter.
Cinema Secrets Hollywood Lights Glitz.

Bonus tip – make sure you get glitter that’s meant to be used cosmetically, not a craft glitter as they can be sharp and get into your eyes.
