We love all that glitters—but let's face it, sometimes sparkling peepers can be more painstaking than we'd like. We caught up with celebrity makeup artist Kelsey Deenihan, who has worked with the likes of Kate Bosworth and Leighton Meester, to get tips on how to master gleaming eyes.  Before layering your favorite brilliant hue, Deenihan suggests starting with an eyeshadow primer to avoid flaking. "Be careful with glitter," Deenihan warns, as it could get messy. "When done right, it can illuminate the eye and make it appear larger when catching the light." When applying a powder, like Bobbi Brown's Powder Pearl Eye Trio ($46,, be sure to pat the loose glitter onto lids as opposed to swiping and smearing. Want an even more vibrant shade for an evening look? Deenihan suggests dampening the sponge for a long-lasting, intense hue.
