How to apply glitter to your face and body

Welcome to our guide on how to apply glitter like a pro!
Whether you're gearing up for a special event, festival, or simply want to add some sparkle to your everyday look, we've got you covered.
In these tutorials, we'll walk you through the art of applying glitter to your hair, face, body, and more, ensuring that you shine and shimmer with confidence.

How to apply face glitter

Apply your fixative

Using a makeup brush or your fingertip, apply a thin, even layer of the fixative to the areas where you want to add the glitter.
You can use vaseline, our application gels or other cosmetic fixative.

Sparkle Sparkle

Dip the brush or your fingertip into the glitter, tap off any excess, and then apply it to the fixative in the desired areas. Use a patting or dabbing motion to ensure the glitter sticks to the fixative.

Once you've applied the glitter, allow it to set for a moment to ensure it adheres to the fixative. Avoid touching or rubbing the glitter while it's drying to prevent smudging.


Remember to remove the glitter makeup gently with a makeup remover, wipes or a mild soap and warm water when you're done. Enjoy your dazzling, glittery look!

Body and Hair Glitter

Hair Glitter

To apply glitter to your hair roots, first, part your hair where you want to add the glitter, then use a small makeup brush, toothbrush or your fingertip to gently pat hair gel onto the roots.
Then using the same method, dab or sprinkle the glitter onto your roots. Secure with hair spray for a longer lasting hold.

Body Glitter

Just like with applying face glitter, to apply body glitter, first, use a body lotion or gel as a base for the glitter. Then, lightly dust or dab the glitter onto the desired areas of your skin using a brush or your fingertips, ensuring an even sparkle, as subtle or as bold as you'd like.

How to apply beard glitter

Beard Glitter

Take a small amount of beard oil or fixative gel and apply it evenly throughout your beard using your fingers or a toothbrush.
Pour some of the glitter into a dish and dip the toothbrush into the glitter. Then apply to your beard using dabbing and brushing strokes.
Keep applying more glitter to get the desired look and effect.

your glitter look remains flawless throughout the day or night. Choose the fixative that suits your desired look and occasion, and let your inner sparkle shine.
