    What is the best way to get eyeshadow with sparkle/glitter in it..

    Hi everyone! What is the best way to get MAC eyeshadow's (or other eyeshadow's) with sparkle/glitter in it to show up on the eyelid? Everytime I do it never seems to show up and I'm a glitter/sparkle addict! Thanks for the answers!

    I like to use LA Splash's eyeshadow base to make my glittery shadows pop, it works and it's cheap!

    That's sold at Ulta right? I have heard of it before.

    Hi sweetie,

    Try Fyrinnae pixie epoxy. Prevents fall out and makes the glitters and piggies how up. Also, if you pat on some piggies instead of brushing them on, they are more vibrant. Too Faced also makes a product called glitter glue that works well.

    I swore by LA Splash too until I got pixie epoxy. Nothing grabs and retains the sparkle density like it.

    I bought mines at ulta but i order online cause i don't have a store near by and they don't have it online anymore, i don't know why, but you can check the stores.. BUT you may want to try the pixie epoxy too cause i've only heard good things about that one too..

    Fyrrinae has a web site and if you like loose piggies they are great for cheap samples

    On the cheaper end, Hard Candy (wal-mart version) has a glitter glue that's the consistency of water, not thick or sticky, that works really well for glitters and fine sparkles. It's also great for applying shadows/pigments wet.

    Oh yeah!
    I completely forgot that I own that.
    I never really thought about using it with pigments.
    Thank you!
