We are firm believers in switching up our beauty routine depending on our mood. Sometimes we just can’t even, and a no-makeup makeup look fits the bill. Other times, we’re feeling the glam vibes and want to go all out, and what better way to take things up a notch than with glitter makeup? Glittery lids are the latest glam look to take over Instagram, and we are loving the modern take on a throwback trend (remember body glitter?). Shimmery lids can add dimension to an already fabulous look, and it makes one helluva statement on the dance floor. If you’re not 100% sold, take a gander at these Instababes, and see how you can sport the trend yourself this season.

1. Glitter Diva: A glittery shadow in a bold shade is the way to go when the rest of your makeup is on the minimal side. For a ’70s-esque look, pair with a shaggy coat and hoop earrings. (via @byrdiebeauty)

2. Sizzlin’ Sparkle: Alli’s pink pout may be preppy, but her eyes are decidedly sultry. Go heavy on the gold accessories for some added bling, and add romantic waves to bring the look full circle. (via @makeupbyalli)

3. Gray Glimmer: Keiko is owning the glitter trend with her ombré grey hue and fierce cat eye. Side-swept baby bangs and a kissable pink lip round out the perfect date-night look. (via @keikolynn)

4. Sunset Shimmer: Victoria looks Miami Beach-ready in this sun-kissed makeup look. Wear a nude lip to keep the focus on your peepers, or go bold and sport a purple pout for an extra glam effect. (via @jaclynhill)

5. Purple for Days: Highly pigmented, shimmery lids, a la this beauty maven, will surely make you feel like a pop princess. Match it with a plum-colored lip and va-va-voom curls for major drama. (via @kkimthai)

6. RadiantRainbow: Don’t settle for just one color — try ’em all with this high-impact effect. If you’re really feeling bold, wear it with minimal duds and rock it as a daytime look. (via @lindahallbergs)

7. Golden Girl: Rock this look for instant It-girl status. Complement rose-gold lids with an expertly lined lip and statement brows, and you’re good to go. (via @katenolan_mua)

8. Trending Trifecta: Analese really knows how to make an impact (read: on-point shimmer lids, plumped-up lashes, strong brow game). Her barely there lips balance the look perfectly, while dainty studs add an extra touch of sparkle. (via @annybeeutee)

9. Hint of Color: It’s hard not to fall in love with Mariah’s unique eye makeup. A hint of color on the waterline is the perfect complement to her metallic lids and glossy lips. (via @thegalsguide)

10. Gold Rush: Bold gold is the name of the game for Mirella. Commit to a single statement hue for look-at-me lids, and wear with basic black to keep your look reined in. Or throw caution to the wind and pair with a pop-of-color frock for a fancy spring event — you do you, girl. (via @mirellabelle)
