How to do a glitter halo eye

The "halo" eye shadow look has been around for quite a while, but if the term is new to you, here's a quick explanation. The whole idea is to bring light to the center of the lid, which can make your eyes look brighter and bigger. To achieve this effect, the inner and outer corners of the lid need to be darkened first.
You can achieve this look with matte shadows, but liquid glitter shadow really makes the whole look pop. No need for eye liner on the top lid either, so you can concentrate on bringing light to the center and simply smoking out the lower line.
