What kind of glitter should I purchase for face painting?

What Kind of Glitter?

Try pure glitter, in the ultra-fine category, for face painting. Look in the crafts section of fabric stores.It does not come in a gel base, which you can find in most cosmetic sections now. It is very finely-ground, won't hurt skin or scratch, and comes in many color combinations.

you can also make your own glitter by using the fine ground and mixing it into vaseline. apply with the back of your brush to highlight your finished design. try not to use on small children as they tend to rub everywhere and you don't want it in their eyes.
