There is a huge glitter trend in beauty at the moment. Normally sparkly makeup looks become popular for the holiday season or for festivals before they fade away, but they have been very popular during the dull days of winter. Recently, we’ve seen glitter lips, glitter-dipped fingers, glitter roots, glitter freckles and even glitter armpits leave their shimmery mark on the beauty industry. If you want to add some sparkle to your beauty look, but you aren’t ready for something as extreme (and itchy) as glitter armpits, there are other more subtle ways to incorporate it. With the right products, you do not have to worry about looking like you were glitter-bombed.
Here are 11 beauty products that make it easy to add a touch of glitter to your look:
A thin stroke of this liner is all you need. If you’re worried about looking like you did in your tween glitter crazy days, don’t worry. The skinny brush makes it very hard to overdo it.
You can never go wrong with glitter nails. This pink shade is fun. Plus, it wears like a gel manicure but it can be removed as easily as any nail polish. For an understated look, try using this glitter polish on an accent nail.
Using a glittery eyeshadow is one of the easiest things to do. This one is a great starting point because it has sheer, buildable color. Blend it in with your regular smokey eye for a bit more dimension.
You are going to want this lipstick just for the fabulous packaging alone. Just be aware that the bullet is formulated with fruit and flower oils for moisture and a fine dose of glitter.
Don’t let the phrase “body glitter” scare you away. This loose powder has a refined (read: subtle) shimmer. Mix a bit in with your body lotion for an easy application.

You can probably guess what this one does from the name. It is formulated to be used on top of your regular shadow to give it an extra boost. Play around with contrasting shades.
The product name may make you blush, but this is a cult favorite. “Super Orgasm” is the more glittery version of the popular “Orgasm” shade, but it is still as universally flattering.
This isn’t your average glitter nail polish. It’s the first of its kind. It is a color-shifting varnish that creates an ombre glitter effect. That’s two trends in one tiny bottle.
This is part of Marc Jacobs‘ new mascara range. The mascara is inspired by the rich tones of lame fabric and coats your lashes with flecks of gold and black. Use it when you want to look more awake.
This pot of sparkle can look intimidating, but it’s not like you are going to dump the entire thing on yourself. It has countless uses. Mix it with your regular matte shadow, add a bit to your body lotion, or press the tiniest bit onto your lipstick.
These lashes aren’t your average set of falsies. The thick, winged lashes have a dusting of glitter. When you wear these, there’s no need for any other eye makeup.
