For the ultimate result with Eye Kandy glitter, we don't recommend an Eyeliner as a base, we insist on it! Applying a solid black (Licorice) or brown (Chocolate) eyeliner as a base accomplishes three major results: Flesh does not show through. You get better coverage. You use less glitter. Result: A dazzling glitter effect that beautifully enhances existing makeup, or looks incredible worn alone. A white (Marshmallow) eyeliner base is an excellent high lighter under brighter color choices and results in amazing eye popping color.
