Now, unlike with previous cycles of this trend, we have the technology to prevent the dreaded creasing, flaking, and fallout that came with packing glitter onto your blinking eyeballs. There are special primers designed to keep the particles in place all day and night. Unlike other eyeshadow primers, these glitter primers are extra thick and leave the eyelids tacky to hold on to the pigment, preventing chunky pieces from falling into your eye or elsewhere on your face. They are also highly moisturizing, which prevents creasing, since no one wants a big bare line in the middle of their party makeup. Firmer, smoother surfaces keep product in place longer, so it is very important to complete this step every time you apply.
