If you’ve been toying with the idea of adding color to your eye shadow routine, a little glitter is a genius segue. Case in point: Altuzarra’s fall 2014 show, where MAC makeup artist Tom Pecheux created gorgeous moss green glitter eyes. The results were chic, playful and totally wearable. A little glitter goes a long way, so be sure to start with a tiny amount and add slowly so you don’t over do it. Once you’ve mastered the process, you’ll be rocking glitter eyes day and night.
