No glue needed! Use your fingertips to tap the product on wherever you'd like (face, eyes, hair, and body). It’s really as easy as tap and go! Fingertips work best, but a silicone brush could also do the job! We believe your finger is the best tool for a smooth and even application, and a brush would be recommended for creating smaller and more precise details. Be sure to tap our glitters down completely so the product lays flat. If you're working on a client, finger gloves or hand gloves are recommended for the best results. If you're going for glitter liner or fun shapes, shape the glitter while it's still wet with a flat synthetic or silicon brush. Gently shape or clean up the desired areas with a spoolie or clean mascara brush.
Our budge-proof formula formula dries down completely and stays put all day!
Want more sparkle? Apply in thin layers, allowing each layer to dry before applying the next. Be sure to clean your finger or brush between layers to avoid product build-up. Applying the product in thin layers helps prevent the product from pulling any makeup off. You can create a subtle and more dispersed look, or go for full coverage.
Need extra strength? Be sure to use an eyeshadow primer or our Mixing Potion if you’re wearing any makeup under your glitter. Though our glitter gels don’t need a glue, adding some adhesive underneath to boost it’s wear time could be helpful for those wild long days. This is also very helpful for oily skin types to prevent the product from creasing!
To easily remove glitter, we highly recommend using micellar water and a cotton pad. This gentle combination effectively removes both makeup and glitter. It's important to note that for non-biodegradable cosmetic glitter, we should avoid washing it into our waterways. Instead, you can use micellar water on a cotton pad, a spoolie, a gentle tape, or a lint roller to remove it.
When it comes to biodegradable glitter, you can wash it off without any worries! Simply rinse off the remaining glitter with water (just water and your hands, please do not use any kind of cloth). If there are any loose specks left, you can use any cleanser, a spoolie, tape, or a lint roller to remove them.
It's crucial to avoid using makeup wipes as they not only create more waste but also spread the glitter around, making the cleanup more difficult.
To ensure the longevity of your glitter gels, please store them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Remember to tightly close the cap when the product is not in use. On average, the shelf life of our glitter gels are 24 months. However, please note that the gel may dry out sooner (around 12 months), especially if left unused for a prolonged period, left opened, or exposed to heat or sunlight for too long.
In case your gel dries out, you can revive it by adding a very small amount of our Reviving Potion. Alternatively, aloe vera gel can be used as a temporary solution. However, please be aware that aloe gel may also contribute to drying out the product, so it is only recommended for temporary use. Our specially formulated Reviving Potion works wonders in restoring your glitter gels to their original magic and consistency.
