How to ace the glitter eye makeup look

Step 01: Start by choosing a shade that you want to create your look with. Pick three shades from the same colour family for a dramatic look. The Lakme Absolute Spotlight Eye Shadow Palette - Berry Martini can be used to create this look.

Step 02: Begin by applying a primer like the Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer on your eyelids for a smooth base.

Step 03: Then brush the base coat or the lightest shade on your eyelids, followed by applying a darker shade on the edge of your eye.

Step 04: Blend the medium shade in the inner corner of your eye, and you can dab the same carefully using your brush or fingers. Brush the darker glitter shade on your crease and then blend all the colours well to complete your look.

Step 05: Finish off by applying eyeliner, followed by lash curler and mascara. If you want to get a more dramatic and glittery eye look, you can opt for a glittery liquid liner like the Lakme Absolute Shine Liquid Eye Liner - Black.
