Patting it on in little sections seems to work best for me.
I only use glitter or shimmery eyeshadows.

thanx paperflowers but this is glitter with no base colour so the patting i found didnt really work as opposed to e/s with glitter mixed in...

Have you tried applying it wet? I don't have any eyeshadows that are mostly glitter, but you can give it a try. Apply it wet by tapping/dabbing it onto your eye and then sweep some on dry to keep it on.

i tried that too plus with sealent..but it just seemed to stay more on the brush

today i tried putting it on a bare lid that just had udpp on...the glitter applied fine

the problem lies in when i already have put e/s colour on and then want sum glitter on it too...hmm mayb i should just mix the glitter with the base colour

I use and angle brush for a liner effer, or my fingers for a larger surface. The most important is putting a base that hold the glitters.

Sephora base is really good for this, Pure luxe liner gel wasn't bad too, but i need to test it again.

hmm you should try a synthetic brush. when i use shimmer/glitter shadows, they apply much easier with synthetic brushes.

Milan Gelle drops works great as a eye primer or to line the eyes. Using a primer definitely solves the problem. Personally i prefer it over the foiled method. Try different techniques and see what works best.

I use a good base then apply with a brush I've wet with visine. This is how I keep my glittery UD shadows on, otherwise there's glitter fallout allll over my cheeks after a while.

I tip my head right back (to stop getting it all over my cheeks) and pat it on with my ring finger. That usually works!

Hi Taz, Pur Luxe Mineral Lining gel is designed for this type of application as well as others. It provides an adhesive base to glittery shadows - but isn't sticky at all. It's also a great lining gel medium. HTH
