Glitter makeup has become really popular in recent years. Helping to create a more glamorous, glitzy effect, it’s great for all kinds of occasions from nights on the town to birthday celebrations. However, if you really want to bling up your makeup, why not use Swarovski flatback crystals?
The sparkle and glamour of Swarovski crystals cannot be beaten, and there’s lots of ways you can use them in your beauty routine. Here, you’ll discover how to bling up your makeup with Swarovski flatback crystals for that perfect fun and glitzy look.
Make sure you’re using a skin-safe adhesive
One of the most important things to remember, when gluing Swarovski flatback crystals onto the face, is to use a skin-safe adhesive. Never use standard-selling superglue as this can not only stick solidly to the skin, causing it to peel when you take it off, but it also contains chemicals which could cause damage too.
You’ll find a great range of skin-safe adhesives on the market. So, it’s worth doing a little research to see which ones are best to use.
Make those eyes pop
Once you’ve got your adhesive set up, it’s time to use the crystals to enhance your makeup. One of the most popular ways to bling up your face, is to use the crystals around the eye area. There’s actually lots of ways to do this, but one of the easiest is to use the crystals around the lower eyelid.
Placing Swarovski flatback crystals along the line under the eye in an oval shape creates a real stand-out look. You can use whichever colours you prefer, though even simple clear crystals will look fab. You could also line just below the lower or upper eyelid for a subtle yet glitzy look.
Sexy, shimmering lips
If you prefer to glitz up the lips, it’s easy to add Swarovski flatback crystals to your look. Before putting on any lip gloss or lipstick, apply the crystals. Then, once they’ve set, you can colour around them with lipstick if desired. If you want to go all out, you can add the crystals to the entire lip area, giving them the ultimate sparkling and glitzy makeover.
The above are just some of the ways you can glitz up your makeup with Swarovski flatback crystals. Remember, the most important thing is to ensure you’re using a suitable adhesive. You can check out tutorials online if you need inspiration for crystal make-up ideas.
