Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadow, £28 | Hourglass

Recommended By: Ashley Dayes

“These Scattered Light Shadows have been in my kit for years. I love the shade ‘Smoke’ – a taupe-y, silver tone that enhances all eye colours with just enough sparkle. You’re best off using your finger to apply it. That way you can really push the shimmer into your lids for the most natural finish. Layer up a few times or keep it sheer for a look that’s subtle.”

Makeup By Mario Master Crystal Reflector™, £27 | Makeup By Mario

Recommended by: Cat Parnell

“This is so pretty – I always have one in my kit. You can use it on the cheeks and over the eyelids. The soft shimmer is so sophisticated while the satin-y texture is easy to work with. Use your ring finger or a fluffy brush to sweep this over your eyelids. You’ll find it sits well too, never flaking or creasing as the day wears on.”

FetishEYES™ Longwear Liquid Eye Shadow, £12 | Pat McGrath

Recommended by: Celia Burton

“I absolutely love Pat’s palettes and liquid shadows. This one is especially good for the disco eye trend as it’s full of shimmer but a slightly warmer silver that’s very easy to pull off. If you’re opting for a shade from a palette, I recommend using a mixing medium like Mehron. This transforms powder shadows into liquids, so the colour is more vivid and also wears well with zero creasing.”

Dazzleshadow Liquid, £20 | MAC

Recommended by: Dominic Skinner

“The disco eye make-up trend needs to be high impact and high shine. If disco lights aren’t giving off a high metallic sheen, I don’t want to know about them. You want glitz – and the best products for that are the Dazzleshadow Extreme in ‘Discotheque’ and Liquid in ‘Diamond Crumbles’. The latter is so easy to use – you just swipe and go, then blend and buff with your finger for a smoother finish.”

Lid Lustre, £33 | Victoria Beckham Beauty

Recommended by: Gemma Peace

“I swear by this product for party season. It has zero fallout and can be used as either a sheer wash or layered up for a more intense eyeshadow. It has a very finely milled sparkle which is what I love the most – it’s sheer and gives you that almost wet-look effect.”

Diamond Bomb All-Over Diamond Veil, £25.60 (was £32) | Fenty Beauty

Recommended by: Jennifer Oliver

“This was created for the face and body, but I love using it on the eyes as it really does look like pure diamonds when washed over the lids. A viral sensation, it’s so popular because it has great longevity and a deep, intense pigment that’s high shine. I like to tap a long-length eyeshadow brush into the product and then gently buff it over lids. It’s so easy to apply and requires minimal effort.”

24/7 Moondust Shadow, £20 | Urban Decay

Recommended by: Levi-Jade Taylor

“I love the Urban Decay Moondust formulas – they are so pigmented and last for hours. The ‘Space Cowboy’ shade is ideal for this look. It’s best applied with your ring finger – I recommend patting the colour onto the centre of your lids for an ethereal, soft shine. The fine shimmer particles reflect the light so beautifully, creating an elegant but impactful look.”

Colorful Mono Eyeshadow, £5.20 (was £6.99) | Sephora

Recommended by: Jessica Kell

“If you want a look that screams party, try this product from Sephora. It has just a touch of glitter, which catches the light nicely and instantly brightens your eye. I recommend applying an eyeshadow primer first, then layering this on top for maximum payoff. To make the colour pop, use a black sooty liner blended into your lash line – this will help create extra definition and depth. I love Lisa Eldridge’s Eyeliner in ‘Black Treacle’.”
