glitter eye shadow


If you’re looking to add a new article of clothing to your closet, one that is durable, stylish, comfortable and affordable, then I suggest the sweater dress. Sweater dresses are always in style (yes, even in warm weather) and remain a mainstream fashion item.

Sweater dresses are knitted garments that generally fit as either a pullover, or cardigan style, where the dress opens and fastens down the front. The collars can be V-neck, round, turtleneck, crew neck, etc. Sweater dresses, in addition to being pretty and cozy, are easily maintained by washing or dry cleaning, and the use of a lint roller or pill razor.

Sweater dresses, whether mini, knee length or maxi, look great when worn with a high heeled boot.  Mini sweater dresses and thigh high boots look beyond striking…oh my!

Sweater Dress Fun Fact: Since sweater dresses are generally made with knitted fabrics and are somewhat elastic, with a softer feel or drape than woven fabrics, sweater dresses tend to fit tightly and conform well to the shape of your body, without requiring the tailoring necessary in a woven garment such as darts, flares and gores. Even when additional body shaping is used, it can be knit into the fabric itself, without requiring seams.

Seems to me, the sweater dress might just be the answer to your wardrobe dreams!

Sweater Fun Fact: In British English, a sweater is also referred to as a jumper, pullover or jersey. In the United States, however, a jumper refers to a style of women’s sleeveless dress, worn over a blouse or shirt, and jersey refers to a knit shirt, especially if part of an athletic uniform. In the United States, a sleeveless sweater is often called a sweater vest. The same garment is referred to as a waist coat in the United Kingdom. Ah, such fun…these fun facts! Informational too!

Walk the town in a warm, fuzzy, eye catching sweater dress and look and feel better than the rest!

Invest in a sensational sweater dress!

Although sweater dresses are traditionally made from wool, they are also made from cotton, synthetic fibers or a combination of the two. No matter what material your sweater dress is made of, it will move along with your body, making for a comfortable you!

Sweater Dress Fun Fact: It wasn’t until the late 20th century that the sweater dress increasingly came to be worn as a garment of its own, as opposed to a sweater that you slip on over your shirt. As finer, cozier, softer materials began to be used, it became comfortable to have the knitted garment next to your skin.

Cover the skin you’re in wrapped in an amazing sweater dress!

Sweater Fun Fact: The uniforms that present day ice hockey players wear are sometimes referred to as sweaters, although they more closely resemble the jerseys worn in other sports like soccer. This is because original ice hockey uniforms were simply sweaters with the team’s logo stitched on the front (wear those sweaters when you’re on that frozen, cold ice)! However, as technology changed, so did the uniform sweaters, as the sweaters absorbed too much moisture and became weighed down and bulky throughout the course of the game.

Put my sweater dress suggestion to the test! Wear one and you’ll see that you look and feel your fashion best!

Sweater Dress Tip: Lots of bangle bracelets and perhaps a long chain necklace, or a glamorous choker, will add elegance, style and a youthful look to your sweater dress!

“I’m looking for someone much like yourself who would like to go dancing with me.”

“Only if I can wear my brand new sweater dress. It will move freely along with me.”

“You can dress however you like. You’ll add class and style to any garment you wear.”

“I think I’ll add some thigh high boots, and perhaps put a flower in my hair.”

“Thank you, miss, for agreeing to join me on the dance floor tonight.”

“I appreciate the invitation. My sweater dress will make my mood just right!”

Sweater Dress: Simply a knitted fabric best!

Most people can agree that glitter is fun to use, pretty to look at and adds sparkle and shine to even the most mundane items.

Glitter Fun Fact: Since prehistoric times, glitter has been made and used as decoration, from many different materials including stones such as malachite, galena, mica and glass. Modern glitter is usually manufactured from plastic.
The first production of modern plastic glitter is credited to the American machinist Henry Ruschmann, who found a way to cut plastic or mylar sheets into glitter in 1934.  During World War II with German glass glitter available, Ruschmann found a market for scrap material ground into glitter made of plastics. He founded Meadowbrook Inventions, Inc. in Bernardsville, New Jersey, and the company is still a large producer of glitter.

Glitter eye shadow can be applied in a variety of ways depending upon the desired look and formulation. Typically application is done using fingers and brushes. The most important aspect of applying eye shadow is blending well. When using glitter eye shadow, which gives a more dramatic look than cream or powered eye shadow, not blending the colors together can give off a powerful, majestic look that is filled with mystery and mystique! Magical eyes! Glittered size!

Glitter Fun Fact: Today over 20,000 varieties of glitter are manufactured in a vast number of different colors, sizes and materials. Over 10,000,000 pounds of glitter was purchased between the years of 1989 and 2009 alone. Holy kamoly…that’s mountains of glitter! Commercial glitter ranges from 0.002 square inches to 0.25 square inches. First, flat multi-layered sheets are produced combining plastic, coloring and reflective material such as aluminum, titanium dioxide, iron oxide and blemish oxychloride. These sheets are then cut into tiny particles of many shapes including squares, rectangles and hexagons.

Eye Shadow Removal: To remove eye shadow, including glittered eye shadow, a commercial makeup remover can be used, though a rich face wash with warm water will generally remove all traces of color. Vaseline works great for removing eye shadow, and all makeup! Eye shadow, eyeliner and mascara may also be removed using baby oil. Another great way to remove both light and heavy eye shadow is using makeup wipes, which can be found at many drugstores and beauty supply stores.
Glitter Fun Fact: Over 6,000 years ago, ancient Egyptians produced glittering cosmetics from the iridescent shells of beetles, as well as finely ground malachite crystal. Researchers believe Mayan temples were sometimes painted with red, green and gray glitter paint made from mica dust, based on infrared scans of the remnants of paint still found on the structures in present-day Guatemala.

Common ingredients in eye shadows consist of talc, mica, sericite, magnesium stearate, colorants and preservatives. For a royal, regal look, let’s add glitter!  Fillers in eye shadows are primarily talc. The liquid binders are typically a silicone and the dry binders are typically magnesium stearate. In order to make eye shadow, there has to be a balance between the fillers, dry binders and the liquid binders.
Glitter Fun Fact: Due to glitter’s unique characteristics, glitter has been proven to be useful forensic evidence. Because of the tens of thousands of different commercial glitters, identical glitter particles can be compelling evidence that a suspect has been at a crime scene. Glitter particles are easily transferred through the air by touch, yet cling to bodies and clothing, often unnoticed by suspects! Interesting! Moral of the story? If you’re setting out to commit a crime, only wear cream or powdered eye shadow. No glitter!
Have you ever got glitter on your couch or in your carpet? You’re best to adapt to the stunning sparkles and leave them there, as trying to remove all the glitter will have you pulling out your hair!

Are you attending an event where you want to look outstanding? Maybe over-the-top, theatrical glamour with a dramatic effect? Eye, eye, eye, the answer is in the eyes, and the answer is, glitter eye shadow!
Applying glitter eye shadow to your gorgeous peepers is a simple and amazing way to get an alluring, sophisticated look that steals the show when you walk into a room. The addition of glitter to the eyes makes the eyes pop. Add heavy eye liner and mascara, and fashion diva, your eyes will stand out in sparkling, dazzling abundance.
Eye shadow is a cosmetic that is applied on the eyelids and under the eyebrows. Eye shadow is commonly used to make the wearer’s eyes stand out or look more attractive. Eye shadow can add depth and dimension to one’s eyes and complement the eye color.
No matter if your eye color is brown, gold, hazel, green, violet or blue, glitter eye shadow will wear fashionably well on you!
Glitter eye shadow can be applied in a wide variety of ways depending upon the desired look and formulation. Typically, application is done using your fingers or makeup brushes. For liquid eye shadows, often times the eye shadow can be applied to your eyes much like wiping a pencil across the lids.
How to Apply Glitter Eye Shadow:

  1. Prepare your eye by applying eye primer all across your upper and lower eyelids (this limits the chances of creases in your eye shadow).
  2. Blend the primer thoroughly using your fingertip.
  3. Select either a powder, cake glitter eye shadow or a liquid glitter eye shadow.
  4. Apply to your upper, lower, or both eyelids with fingertips, makeup brushes or pencils.
  5. Experiment with various colors to match your clothes or your eye color. Neon colors will make the eyes pop. Pastel colors will give off a dainty, elegant look.
  6. To remove the glitter eye shadow, a commercial eye makeup remover can be utilized. For some, warm water alone can be used.

Cosmetics have been used for as long as there have been people to use them. Face painting is mentioned in the Old Testament (Book of Ezekiel 23:40) and eye shadow was used in Egyptian burials dating back to 10,000 BC.

Glitter Eye Shadow Fun Fact: Civilizations across the world use glitter eye shadow – predominantly females, but occasionally males go for the rock and roll wild eye look as well. In Western society, eye shadow is basically seen as a feminine cosmetic. In Gothic fashion, black or similarly dark-colored eye shadows and other types of eye makeup are popular with both sexes.
As a lover of fashion, I feel there aren’t any set in stone rules. No matter what shape or color of eyes you have, whatever shades of eye shadow you prefer is what you should wear. Me personally, I have blue eyes, yet I tend to match the color of my eye shadow to the clothes I am wearing as opposed to the color of my eyes. However, here are some eye shadow color combinations that look fantastic on certain colors of eyes.
Eye Shadow Color Combinations to Bring Out the Color of Your Eyes:

  1. Brown and/or Gold Eyes: Go with brown, chocolate, gold and orange eye shadows. Stunning!
  2. Blue Eye: Go with shades of blues and pinks. Dainty!
  3. Green and/or Hazel Eyes: Go with light browns, greens and purples. Exquisite!
  4. Violet Eyes: Go with pinks, purples and lavenders. Luscious!

For a glittered up, glamorous, glorious set of eyes, highlight your glitter eye shadow with heavy eyeliner and mascara (even long, false eyelashes are beguiling) and show off your eye brows. The eyes have it!
Glitter Eye Shadow Fun Fact: Glittery eyes are commonly used in theater and other plays to create a memorable look, with bright, bold colors. Depending on skin tone and experience, the effect of eye shadow usually brings out the glamour and gains attention.
Golds, silvers, greens, browns, oranges, purples, pinks, lavenders, blues. My glittery, colorful, lovely made up eyes are watching you!
To thine own eyes be true!
Eye Shadow Fun Fact: As early as 10,000 BC, in Egypt, kohl was a dark-colored powder made of crushed antimony, burnt almonds, lead, oxidized copper, ochre, ash, malachite and chrysocolla (a blue-green copper ore) or any combination thereof. The kohl was applied with a small stick. The upper and lower eyelids were painted in a line the extended to the sides of the face for an almond effect. In addition to reducing glare, it was believed the kohl eyeliner could restore good eyesight and reduce eye infection.
After the defeat of the Greeks by the Romans, the Romans adapted the Egyptian custom, albeit with different ends. To the Romans, applying eye shadow became a matter of fashion and aesthetics.
To all fashion and style lovers, today glitter eye shadow is one of the most popular cosmetics on the market.
