Festival Makeup Spotlight: How to Do Glitter Brows Festival Makeup Spotlight: How to Do Glitter Brows Festival Makeup Spotlight: How to Do Glitter Brows

Glitter is just about everywhere: on shoes, handbags, dresses, lips, and eyelids—so, it’s no wonder then that this sparkly fashion and beauty trend has worked its way up to brows. The look, which started popping up here and there on social media, has become one of the most popular festival makeup trends for summer 2017. As you probably well know, brows can make or break your entire makeup look. So, whether your perfect idea of festival makeup is understated glimmering glitter brows or ombré glitter brows, we’ve got you covered with the two tutorials below.

Festival Makeup Idea #1: Understated Glimmering Glitter Brows

If you want to get in on the glitter trend in a work-friendly way, try this neutral understated glitter brow tutorial. In just the right light you’ll shine like a star!

What you’ll need:

Angled brush

Spoolie

Glitter base (such as lash glue)

Loose neutral glitter

Tissue

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Concealer

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Brush your brows into place. Depending on your desired brow shape, either smooth your brows out or rough them up a bit.

Step 2: Apply your glitter base. When applying the glue, you want to work in small sections so that it doesn’t dry before you add glitter.

Step 3: Apply glitter with your angled brush. Dip your brush into the neutral glitter (we love the way champagne and rose gold look) of your choice and press it into the small gluey section so that it has something to adhere to. Place a tissue over it to catch any loose flecks.

Step 4: Continue to glitter and glue. Like we said, you want to work in small sections all the way to the end of your brow so that the loose glitter will have the best chance of sticking in place.

Step 5: Repeat on the other side. Once you finish your first brow, complete the same process on the other one.

Step 6: Comb glitter for full coverage. While the glue is still damp, use your spoolie to cover all your bases for fully glimmering brows.

Step 7: Conceal your brows. Adding a little bit of concealer underneath your brows can help them look crisper. You can even line the tops of your brows to help make your glittery work of art stand out. Use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Concealer, which comes with a wand applicator.

Festival Makeup Idea #2: Ombré Glitter Brows

Let’s be real: Who doesn’t love a little ombré action? What started out as a hair color trend has now made its way over to the makeup world—and we can’t say we’re mad about it.

What you’ll need:

Angled brush

Spoolie

Glitter base (lash glue will do the trick!)

Loose light glitter in your shade of your choice

Loose medium glitter in your shade of your choice

Loose dark glitter in your shade of your choice

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Concealer

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Brush brows into place. However you want them to look, use your spoolie to get the job done.

Step 2: Apply a thin layer of glue to the beginning of your brow. Work in sections because the glue can dry quickly.

Step 3: Start by applying the light glitter in light layers. Start at the beginning of your brow and work about a third of the way inwards. Remember to apply light layers because if you apply too thickly, you’ll be left with lots of loose glitter.

Step 4: Keep working along your brow. Once you reach a third of the way in, switch colors by going over the first light color a bit with the medium color to help the two colors blend seamlessly.

Step 5: Finish the end of your brow with your darkest color. Again, make sure to overlap to avoid any harsh lines.

Step 6: Fill in any spaces you see that need a bit more glitter. If you notice any barren spots, add a touch more glue and a bit more glitter to achieve the sparkly brows of your dreams.

Step 7: Clean off any glitter that got out of place with a spoolie. Just be sure to brush gently so you don’t dislodge any glitter you want to stay in place.

Step 8: Conceal your brows to create crisp, clean lines. You know the drill: Grab a tube of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Concealer and blend it in above and below your brows.
