Exclamation How do I make my dress sparkle?

I've been working on a Homestuck Jade Harley 3AM cosplay with a black bridesmaid's dress. It has 2 layers, the bottom one being a chiffon-like material, and the top being a sheer see-through material. (You clearly tell that I'm an expert at sewing with my wonderful terminology.) I've been sewing some clearish milky white glass beads to the bottom layer which look fine without the top layer, but when the top layer goes over it, they all look really dull and are hard to notice. I want to try putting a different kind of sparkle on top that will really make it stand out. This is for a masquerade in 6 months and I want it to look its very best!
