Layer glitter into your liner

If you’d like a hint of glitter without feeling OTT, try adding glitter to your liquid eyeliner. This KIKO Glitter Eyeliner, 6.90, can be used alone, or as a topcoat over coloured eyeliner. We love using it on the lower lash line with our regular makeup – the light reflection makes your eyes look bigger too.
