How to use Glitter in Mehndi?

Mehndi is used mostly in subcontinent and middle east. but now a days we find a new trend in mehndi that is glitter mehndi.

. Glitter adds shine and beauty in mehndi design. it is very popular now a days especially in young girls and also in brides on their wedding day. It is  applied on the drying paste of henna to give it a different look. It only last for a day and get washed along with the paste. We can also apply glitter on henna tattoo give it a beautiful look. It will look really nice on parties and weddings. Since glitter mehndi is not water proof so it will get washed as soon as we'll wash it.
Method of adding glitter
glittering in mehndi are of two ways:-
  • Adding liquid glitter (gilding and glitter paste)
  • Sprinkling glitter

Liquid glitter is very easily found in markets.but u can also make it at home.

for making glitter you will need:-
  1. Lumiere powder(powdered eye shade).
  2. Body glitter.
  3. Hair gel.
Method of making gliter paste:-
  • Hair gel required 2 or 3 tablespoon (or more if you need more glitter paste) pour it in any little bowl   
  • Add little quantity of Lumiere powder  and mix it.
  • If you want light colored paste then add very small amount of color and if needed darker shade then add Lumiere more.
  • You can add more then one color in gel to make your required color.
  • You can also add glitter in Lumiere and gel paste to make it shiny.
  • If you want to make only glitter paste then mix glitter in to gel and mix it very well,your glitter paste is ready.
  • Now you can pour it in mehndi cone and enjoy your design....
Glitter paste or gliding is used in mehndi same like mehndi. apply mehndi first and when mehndi is about to dry apply glitter in your design. glitter paste is washed away when you  washes your hands.
