Makeup gives you opportunities to be whoever you want to be. You can transform into anything, and your glow inside can be highlighted with some genuine sparkle on your body! Glitter is a massive trend at festivals and all the occasions where you can be yourself. Hence, master some of these face glitter ideas, combine them with alternative makeup and bright summer nails, and you'll impress people with your glow!

10. Add a Subtle Glow on Your Face

These little sparkles are enough to look extravagant!

If you're not attending a music festival but still want to try some face glitter ideas, don't worry because you don't have to be covered with sparkles to glow! For some girls, a subtle nail polish with a lot of sparkles is enough. Still, if you want some glow on your face, try some pastel colors and stay subtle!

It's a false narrative that glitter for face has to be so striking that it seems annoying and tiring. Add some white or baby pink drops below your eyes, and you'll look fancy and sophisticated while achieving the effect you want. Of course, you should avoid red, purple, and black if you want to be subtle!

9. Hair Glitter

Roots are everyone’s favorite hair area to apply glitter

Are those girls with sparkly roots so attractive that you always want to try that effect, too? What are you waiting for, then? There's no need to be afraid to add glitter to your glowing hair since if you use a proper glue suitable for skin, it will work for hair as well! Along with hair, add some glitter to your cheeks, which will be your best festival look!

With some tutorials, you should master this skill as quickly as any other body part where you want to add glitter. Of course, your roots aren't the only part you can cover with glitter – some girls prefer glitter strands, which can be even easier to make. Play with face glitter ideas as much as you wish, and we guess you still won't have issues with washing your hair afterward!

8. Chest Glitter

This mermaid look requires a lot of glitter on your chest!

Since you're already considering applying glitter to your hair roots and obviously to the particular parts of your face, why wouldn't you go with another festival trend? Body glitter is getting more sparkly and free-spirit, and people aren't afraid to wear glitter on their hands, shoulders, and chest!

In case you were curious about why ladies now choose lower necklines for festivals, you finally found the right reason. That's because they want to make that part of their bodies glow! Chest glitter makes you instantly carefree and approachable, and you'll seem to enjoy your life to the fullest. It's for the brave ones!

7. Decorate Your Cheeks

We can’t decide what’s cuter – her cheeks or the hairstyle!

Some parts of your face wouldn't look that good with glitter – your chin or forehead, for example. No one does that! However, even if we exclude these parts, you still have the most space and opportunities on your face, the part everyone notices first! The most significant area of your face are your cheeks, so they really have the potential!

If you're going for cheeks only this time, you should try neutral colors, such as gold, silver, or even white. Save the intensifying colors for the areas closer to your eyes so you can draw attention to them. However, you can also try turquoise, or light purple, if you go without an eyeshadow

6. ...And the Area Around Your Eyes and Cheekbones

Glitter in this shape took over all the social media platforms – we’re all obsessed!

One part of your cheeks requires the best makeup to look fabulous – your cheekbones! They're the most suitable area for highlighting, so they wouldn't mind some glitter face makeup. Actually, they can take a lot of sparkles at once and still look very trendy! Your cheekbones will appear high, even if they're not, when you finally let them glow!

Feel free to decorate your cheekbones even when you're already wearing a glitter eyeshadow since it won't be too much. Everybody expects you to put on some glitter there, along with an eyeshadow, anyway. This might be the most famous way of wearing glitter at festivals, especially because you can cover the whole area around your eye!

5. ...Or Your Lips

It actually requires some skill!

What's a makeup list without a proper lipstick recommendation? You can highlight your eyes in various ways, but lips are still the most crucial point for most ladies. Of course, they probably look the best when applying matte lipstick with a sophisticated shade, but glitter also works well!

Even though glitter has a natural glow and looks pretty in many ways without trying too hard, be careful when you're concentrating on putting it on your lips. Lipsticks containing glitter have to be carefully chosen. They should be long-lasting, and you'll obviously have to find the best shade for yourself. Not any color can fit when there's glitter!

4. Try Glitter in Star Shape

If you want to shimmer the night away in the right way, why wouldn't you shine like a star? Almost everyone thinks of glitter's simple, round shape, but this makeup piece can be way more than that! If you're looking for the best shape, maybe it's not round – it's the star!

The star shape lets you create a whole Milky Way on your cheekbone, so you can add a star and then a bit of dust below it. When you want to be subtle, you can apply one star only on the top of your cheekbone, and you'll still look so fancy and cute. One star can solve all your problems about how to combine more glitter!

3. ...Or Heart, or Any Other Interesting Form

So, you've tried stars, and you liked them so much that you ditched the round glitter forever – now you want to try more! Are hearts even an option? Absolutely, especially for Valentine's day themed parties, but also for any other festival – love is always in the air! Hearts come in various shapes and colors, and they'll make you extremely cute!

Of course, hearts and stars aren't the only glitter shapes, so you can scroll a bit through the offers on the Internet, and you'll find the version you like. Shapes let you experiment since they're more visible and attractive to people, so feel free to try them. You can always combine them with plain glitter drops!

2. Glitter Tears

It’s the hottest trend!

Sometimes makeup doesn't require any special skills, but it transforms you so well that you'll be obsessed. Glitter tears are the best way to be so amazed by your own face that you'll want this for every festival ever! With makeup like this, you definitely won't cry because this will instantly boost your serotonin!

This trend kept sweeping social media, and even K-pop culture – Red Velvet's most popular photocard ever is Seulgi's glitter tears selfie. Something is captivating in the idea of crying tears of glitter because when you're wearing it, you're actually happy, and these symbolize the tears of joy!

1. A Simple Glitter Eyeshadow

Smokey eyes and glitter? That combination exists!

The perfect amount of drama and elegance lies in the glitter eyeshadow. If you want to stay subtle but traditional, go for it only without adding any body glitter. This is the safest way to shine bright but to avoid playing and experimenting. Makeup is there to make us try things freely, but if you're not up for that, that's OK!

Of course, glitter is always somewhat challenging, even when trying glowing outfits. Hence, it might be hard for you at first, but you'll learn to apply enough glitter to achieve the desired effect. These eyeshadows come in various colors and can even be combined with smokey eyes and eyeliner!

Many of these top ten list recommendations are bold and daring and are probably out of your comfort zone. However, remember that it's the point of wearing makeup – why would you hide when you can be yourself and shine in any crowd? You only live once, so don't hesitate to glow!
