Glitter can be pretty polarizing in the makeup world. Yes, some glitter makeup looks are not for the faint of heart and are usually extra AF, but there are ways to use glitter that won't make you look like a disco ball. 

There's subtle, shimmering highlighter, perfect for everyday use. There's highly pigmented glitter eyeshadow, ideal for making a statement. And then there are glitter freckles, glitter confetti, and glitter lipstick - AKA the over-the-top glitter products perfect for sparkle fanatics. Whatever your style, there are so many ways to add a little shimmer to your look, and these amazing glitter makeup shots from Instagram MUAs prove it.

These photos offer inspiring ideas on how to incorporate glitter into your daily makeup routine, from metallic lipsticks (for glitter makeup addicts) to glimmering highlighters (for the shimmer-shy). Get your shine on!
