Glitter or shimmer eyeshadow is the easiest and most common way to add just the right amount of drama to your look. You can either add loose shimmer for a highly saturated look, but we understand it might not be everyone’s cup of tea. For something more subtle, simply apply two coats of any shimmery eyeshadow in the shade of your choice and you’re good to go.

If adding shimmer to your entire eyelid isn’t really your thing, then here’s the best alternative for you — shimmery eyeliner. Wear an eyeliner in the same colour as your outfit to go matchy-matchy and pack a punch.
