Love Island has given us many things this year – the couples, the catfights and of course, the glitter eyeshadow. Yep, the cult TV show has seen sales of the party makeup boom and we all want to copy the look. If you're a little concerned that glitter eyes are a tad too young, then fret not because there are tons of sparkly products on the market aimed at the more grown up eyelids out there. We're talking classy cosmetics. Think on-trend metallic hues with a hint of shimmer; stunning on a night out with the girls or romantic date.

We're loving these glamorous glitter eyeshadows…

We adore an Urban Decay palette and their Moondust Eyeshadow Palette is spot on for vibrant glitter shades – pink, green, purple, just scrumptious! And it's currently on sale at £21.90, down from £36.50.


We're a tiny bit obsessed with Huda Beauty's Gemstone Obsessions Palette, priced £25 from The cool mx of deep and pale glitter shadows are a great combo for every occasion.

Go all out Love Island with Barry M's Glitter Bomb eyeshadow in a lip gloss style pot. The product uses pearl and glitter flecks to achieve a 3d finish. The best bit though: it's only £5!

Stila makeup is seriously chic and their Mermaid Glitter and Glow Liquid Eye Shadow doesn't disappoint. It's available at Boots for £23 in a range of shades, from turquoise to coral and violet.


Every disco diva needs this product in their life. The Revolution Pressed Glitter Eyeshadow Palette Midas Touch is £10 at Superdrug and has a fabulous range of glitzy metal hues.
