From glitter eyeshadows to glitter lipsticks, we’ve tried almost all things glitter. So, what’s new for this season? Glitter for the brows, of course – because it’s all about shimmer and shine!
Disco brows, commonly referred to as glitter brows, are quite popular. As seen on breakout star and daughter of Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke, Maya Hawke, the Y2K trend saw a spike in popularity last month as it made its way from the runway at Peter Do’s highly-anticipated show at New York Fashion Week to the internet’s favourite new movie, Do Revenge.
Back in 2018, YouTuber Holly Aldous introduced glitter brows that were so amazing that people mistook them for Photoshopped ones. Once you see how wearable they are, you’ll want to duplicate this amazing TikTok and Instagram trend that is just getting started. The thing about glitter is that application is everything. Although practically every makeup line has some sort of shimmer in it—glitter face masks are even a thing now—not all shimmer is created equal. Using the proper glitter and technique to get a result that is so good that others don’t even believe it is glitter is the secret to Aldous’ appearance.
This cosmetics fad is exactly what its name implies: laminated brows that sparkle thanks to glitter specks. Glitter brows are in the spotlight, perhaps because of the current Y2K mania and the rebirth of party girl beauty. Eye-catching, isn’t it? You can now achieve this super-easy eyebrow look by using minimal tools. Here’s how to do it in just two steps:

Prep your brows
Your brows must first be primed and prepared for the glitter. In order to coat each hair and give your brows the desired fluffy form, firmly brush through your brows with whatever primer or brow gel you’re using. They will be able to control the glitter more effectively as a result. If you’ve never used brow gel, you can use a substitute which is Vaseline petroleum gel. Use a spoolie, dip it into your petroleum gel and brush your brows.
Pat the glitter
This might get a little messy so you’ll need a tissue or cloth to prevent the glitter from spreading all over your face. Apply some loose glitter to your brows using a brush or your finger right after you’ve applied the brow gel. Until you get the desired effect, fill in your brows with as much glitter as necessary.
Now that’s the manual way of doing it. But you know, we always want something that’s time-consuming and hassle free. If you’re into that, you can check out glitter brow gel. Instead of dabbing glitter on your brows, you can just swipe some glitter gel. Or, you can mix your eyebrow gel with glitter beforehand and apply it whenever you need. Easy, isn’t it?
