How to Apply Glitter Tears for Your Next Festival How to Apply Glitter Tears for Your Next Festival How to Apply Glitter Tears for Your Next Festival

Festival season is upon us! And that means it’s time not only for parading around with our “festie” (a.k.a. someone who goes to a lot of festivals) listening to our favorite music, but for fun makeup, as well! The same way fashion week is a time to flaunt serious style—no matter how out of the box it is—festival season is the perfect time to showcase unconventional makeup looks to truly stand out in a crowd. In fact, the bolder you are, the better!

One of our favorite festival makeup trends for Spring 2017? Glitter tears! This sparkly, shimmery take on eye makeup is anything but subtle. Want to rock if at your next festival? Follow along with our tutorial below!

How to Get the Glitter Tears Look

Could you just cry you’re so excited to see your favorite DJs spin the beats? Hold your tears and blend these on instead for an eye-catching look that’s equal parts glitter and grunge.

What you’ll need:

L’Oréal Paris Studio Secrets™ Professional Magic Perfecting Base

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Powder

L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Pocket Palette Eye Shadow in Violet Amour

L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Complete your face makeup. Glitter tears extend down your face, so it’s important that you complete your entire complexion before moving on to your eyes. So, do what you normally do in regards to primer, foundation, concealing, and contouring.

Since festivals are outdoors, you may want to consider using matte products to help reduce your chances of being super-shiny come midday. First apply the L’Oréal Paris Studio Secrets™ Professional Magic Perfecting Base, then follow up with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation. Use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender to dab the foundation onto your skin for a seamless look. Finally, finish your face off with a dusting of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Powder.

Step 2: Create a halo eye. For this look, you’ll want to use a few colors to create a really nice gradient effect. Since festival season is all about bright colors, we especially love how this looks with purple hues, so try the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Pocket Palette Eye Shadow in Violet Amour. Using the bottom left-hand color, arch a line of color across your entire crease with a fluffy eye shadow brush. Next, using the top right-hand color, dab a bit more dimension into the crease. You want to make sure to pat and not swipe. That’s because swiping can sometimes combine the colors into one muddled shade instead of a statement eye with loads of color variation. For the lid, use the top left-hand color. The last step of your upper lid is to darken the inner and outer corners of your crease using the bottom right-hand color.

Step 3: Trace the base of your tears. Using the top left-hand color of the palette mentioned above, lightly trace under your bottom lid, extending in streaks down your cheek for where your tears will be. When creating your tears, make sure your eyes aren’t identical because you want it to look natural—well, as natural as a super-vibrant makeup look can be.

Step 4: Add glitter. Use a thin eyeliner brush dipped in primer to dab thin, loose glitter all along where you just traced the pretty pinkish-purple color. For added allure, add some chunky glitter to the mix so that your tears are multi-dimensional. Just remember to keep most of the glitter closest to your eyes since that’s where tears naturally well up when you cry. Before setting your glitter aside, dab a tad on the light portion of your lid and you’re ready for the next step.

Step 5: Finish with mascara. To complete your teary look, add a coat of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara for a festival-ready gaze.
