The 16 Shiniest, Most Sparkly Glitter Makeups of 2018

Glitter was the biggest beauty trend of 2018. And the blinged out look is perfect for the holiday party circuit. Here are the best 16.

From smearing glitter on our bodies, to face jewels and the winter holiday collections of metallic and glitter makeups, it’s been a big year for cosmetic glitter. There were a lot of glitter lipsticks and lip glosses, as well as glitter eyeshadow palettes. Others prefer to use a pure glitter pigment.

These are the 16 shiniest, most sparkly glitter makeups of the year, as selected by Slutty Raver Costumes. Click on the links to learn more about each beauty product, including where to buy it.

Best Glitter Pigments

Loose glitter pigments can be used on the face, hair and anywhere else you can think of to create a dazzling effect. To save money on multiple pots of glitter look for a package deal such as the MAC Cosmetics Shiny Pretty Things Mini Glitter and Pigments ($29.50) that comes in a pack of four.
