The 5 Best Ways to Wear Bodyography Glitter Pigments

Glitter eyeshadow looks are a staple in our arsenal of beauty moments, from brilliant and sparkling to smoky and grungy; we love it all!

When we created Bodyography Glitter Pigments (almost six years ago!), there wasn't anything like it on the market! We wanted a metallic, high shine eyeshadow that imparts a wet look shine, with the saturation of pressed eyeshadow, the shimmer of a loose pigment, and the texture of a cream. It was no small feat, but we finally landed on our Glitter Pigment formula, a must-have for all makeup kits, a beauty editor favorite, and a product worthy of its cult-following status.

Our formula is proudly 'plastic-free,' containing multidimensional shimmer and pearls that replicate glitter; we are vegan, cruelty-free, and biodegradable! Let's journey through our favorite application techniques and looks created using this best-seller!

#1 Halo Eye

The Halo Eye is created by strategically placing a darker shadow at the inner and outer corners of the eye and adding a 'spotlight' of sheen and shimmer using a light-reflective shadow in the center.

This technique makes the eyes appear wider and brighter and is super flattering for all eye shapes! A Halo Eye can be as dark and smoky or light bright as you'd like; this style looks fantastic with bold colors!

The incomparable Katie Jane Hughes created our favorite Halo Eye; we love this look's seamless blend and sparkling effect! Katie used Sparkler Glitter Pigment to create this look.

#2 Watercolor Eye 

A Watercolor eye is more complex when it comes to artistry. However, it is the simplistic application that makes this style so unique. Our past MUSE, Ehlie Luna, built this stunning look with our Ambient Lux Glitter Pigment Collection.

Ehlie used all four shades in one look, layering and positioning the different shades to catch the light. We love how Ehlie used Blue Morpho as a liner and Spirit Quartz as a highlighter. Watercolor eyes are a fun and experimental way to play with color and placement, a big spring/summer trend!

#3 Bold & Graphic 

We love this take on a sultry smoky eye; the look becomes modern and edgy by adding a graphic element.

Our Glitter Pigments can be applied with a mixing medium or setting spray to create a detailed liner or carve out shapes. Our MUSE Jessica G played with shapes and tonal shades to build this bold & graphic eye.

Jessica used our Shadow Stylist Crayon to create the shape and accentuated the look with Flip Side Glitter Pigment. 

#4 Subtle Smokey

When we think Smoky Eye, our minds jump to brown and black shadow - but we love a subtly smoky eye, especially this one created by Makeup Artist Yasmin Istanbouli for Addison Rae.

Yasmin began with a wash of color (read more about that below) using Soiree Glitter Pigment; she then swept that same shade under the lower lash line and blended outwards, creating a subtle smoky effect on the eye. Pair this look with long, full lashes and glowing skin for the perfect combo, as seen on Addison!

#5 Wash of Color

A Wash of Color is the most effortless Glitter Pigment application; all you need to do is 'wash' or sweep one shade from lash line to just above or below the crease, blend the edges, and done!

Also known as a 'one and done' technique, a Wash of Color is simple and can be applied with a finger, not to mention it looks good on EVERYONE!

We commissioned the talented Drew Roxanne to showcase all of our Glitter Pigments for e-comm, creating a beautiful Wash of Color seen here in Stellar.
