Whether you are heading to a party or busy preparing for a fab festival stand out with Prima's stunning glittering new products! Here at Prima Makeup, we love all things sparkly and these glitter looks are what we love to create!
To make sure that you are ready to sparkle this summer we are going to show you how to create the perfect glittering look, just like those gorgeous people from Love Island!
How to get the Festival Glitter Look..
1. Select Your Sparkle
With so many amazing glitter mixes, it's difficult to choose just what shade to go for, but most importantly you need to check it's cosmetic grade glitter, we can't stress enough how important it is to make sure the glitter you are applying to your body is safe to use! All of our Prima Makeup glitters are cosmetic grade, which means they are safe to apply to the face, hair and body.
2. Gem it up!
Self adhesive face gem's are totally on trend right now and can be worn on the face or body. They look beautifully intricate, but in fact they are one piece face gems! So just peel and stick! We have used our Festival Face Star Gems to create this look.
3. Chunky or Fine Glitter?
There are lots to choose from when it comes to loose glitters but we recommend that you grab a mixture of chunky and fine. As the chunky glitter gives you a high impact look, but the fine glitter can fill in the gaps and can help to give a beautiful shimmering colourful base.
We used our Unicorn Loose Glitter Mix called Marina to create this look, which has both Chunky and Loose glitter in one pot!
4. Choosing The Right Adhesive Or Fixing Gel
Once you have your choice of glitter then you will need an adhesive to make sure the glitter stays in place and is long lasting, stay away from using things like hair gel on your face as these products are not designed for the hair and can clog your pores. We would suggest opting for a specially formulated fixing gel.
5. Applying the Glitter
Now for the fun part! Grab yourself a brush such as a Flat foundation brush or an artist's paint brush. We love using a brush which measures approx 1" in width, allowing you to pick up the glitter mix with ease.
Apply a small amount of the fixing gel - we are using our Unicorn Poop Shimmering Fixing Gel - this gel has Jojoba oil in to soothe and soften the skin and smells of Clementine and Prosecco! It also has built in sparkle and shine, so can be worn alone if you want a subtle shimmer. Place the adhesive anywhere you want to add the glitter.
Then using the same brush pick up the glitter by scooping a small amount onto the brush and apply the glitter using a smoothing motion onto the fixing gel.
6. Extra Sparkle
Need even more glitter? Who doesn't! Why not add more sparkle to your look with Dazzle Dust This versatile little pot of magic can be used in your hair as a natural alternative to glitter hairsprays. It can also be used on top of eyeshadow, lipstick/lipgloss, as a highlighter on cheekbones or even on your body as a body shimmer!
Once you have achieved the desired look you're good to go! Below is a quick video running through of one of our festival looks! Remember to post your pics of your creations to our Facebook page! We can't wait to see them!
