Glitter Tips, Tricks and Trends!

Glitter is BACK in a big way, here’s how you can stay on top of the trends and get the look.

GLITTER! It comes and goes, you love it or you hate it but it’s back and I have a feeling it’s here to stay. Glitter is a fun easy way to transform your festival fashion look from drab to fab in no time. It’s super forgiving, easy to use, and just looks great on everyone! 

But where to start? First, you’re gonna need some glitter. iHeartRaves sells a ton of different kinds and they’re all under $10! For festivals, I like to use the chunkier glitter the better. Holographic, star-shaped, 3D glitter, you name it and it will likely be the showstopper on top of your already amazing outfit.

Check out my favorite trends below and what I do to get the look.



If you want to make this look even bolder, try putting a different color glitter just underneath your brow line to really make your eyes pop! Also known as the glitter underscore.

How to get the look: To get this look all you really need is a good glitter primer/adhesive. My personal favorite is from Nyx Cosmetics because it works great, the company is cruelty-free, AND it’s only $6! Too Faced’s Glitter Glue is a more high-end adhesive but the results will stay throughout the entire festival. If you’re in a pinch and can’t find any of these, I use any eyelash glue or adhesive on hand it works as a great substitute.

Apply the primer to your skin, wait 10-15 seconds for the primer or adhesive to become tacky, dab iHeartRaves Launautics Glitter onto your brow with a small brush or just your ring finger. 


This look has really exploded into the festival fashion scene lately. And how could it not? This is a simple cute way to enhance your look. It’s also great to hide those greasy roots you get after camping for 3 days at a music festival.

How to get the look: This method involves a little experimenting on what you look best. To get this look mix glitter and a strong hold pomade/gel in a 1:1 ratio. Once you get the consistency and desired level of glam, apply to your roots with a brush! To get the look on the right, you’ll need to buy star-shaped glitter, and a buddy to apply the stars precisely into your part.

Under Eyes


Follow the same instructions from under the brows to get this look.

Nothing’s off limits!

How to get the look:  Apply a base coat of a glitter spray of your choice and then simply go crazy.  For best results, try a body glitter or gel before applying loose glitter on top.

And pretty much anywhere else you want! No really, I mean it, even glitter booty is a thing!
