In expected fashion, early this morning Kesha posted an Instagram post in which she looks like the glittering 2016 rebirth of Madonna (not the legendary singer, but the mother of Jesus) crying jeweled tears for the persistent wrongs of the world.

After agreeing with her sentiments of peace and good will, many people admiring picture want to know: How can I recreate Kesha’s glitter tears?! Luckily, despite its flaws, the world is a beautiful place rife with bejeweled and glittery makeup supplies of all colors and price ranges so you can shine bright like the sparkly tears of Kesha’s Insta pic.

If you’re looking to rock actual gems or heavier glitter, one of the first things you’ll need is adhesive.

Urban Decay

The Urban Decay Bondage Weightless Makeup Adhesive costs $14 and will last you a many sessions of (safely) embellished eyes.

Once you have supplied yourself with adhesive, you get the fun task of picking your glitter and gems, and your options abound!

If you’re looking to have glitter-lined eyes, but don’t feel compelled to attempt Kesha’s full weeping  Tiffany & Co. look, you can nab yourself some Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner for $20 which comes in silver, gold, pink, purple, and blue.

This is a safe way to immediately glitter up your eyes without the hassle of applying loose glitter!

However, if you’re feeling inspired to go all the way and create a tearful constellation of glitter, you can purchase one of the six colors of Urban Decay Heavy Metal Loose Glitter, which are now on sale for $6. Once you’ve carefully applied adhesive to your lids and all applicable areas, spread the glitter around and watch your face transform into the embodiment of New Year’s Eve on any of the other 364 days of the year.

For silvery and gold makeup gems to accent your look, try Makeup Forever Strass 12 gems. They are a bit pricier, but will last you long enough to fill fountains with your sparkling tears!
