It’s always been my plan to post a bold glitter look so here it is!
I love working with glitter but sometimes it can make my skin a bit irritated. So, right after I took this look off, I slapped on some good eye cream! 😛 You can make this look work for day by just adding a little bit of glitter to the lids and going with a subtler set of lashes. If I went that route with the look, I think it would’ve looked reminiscent of a look I had recently seen Jennifer Lopez wear on American Idol. Glitter isn’t something to be to scared of – just start in small doses! 😉
I paired Urban Decay’s Snatch from the Book of Shadows Vol. 3 with Shot Gun and Last Call from the Urban Decay Shadow Box for Eyes palette. To find similar colours, look for a peachy pink as the base lid colour and add a deeper pink to the outer 1/3. Vapour eyeshadow by MAC was applied to the brow bone to highlight. I used Make Up For Ever’s No. 8 glitter which is their pinkish-purple glitter and applied it on top of Duo Dark Adhesive Lash glue on the lids. NYX’S Milk Jumbo Eye Pencil was added to the waterline to brighten the eyes and make them appear more doll-like. Then a thick swipe of L’Oreals Lineur Intense liquid liner and Ardell’s Double Up lashes were applied as the final touch.
Marcelle’s BB Cream and Smashbox’s Halo To Go Hydrating Perfecting Powder were applied for foundation and I used one of my favourite foundation/concealers in one – Cover FX Cream Foundation – for concealing. The bronze and glow added to the skin were compliments of NYC’s bronzer in Sunny and High Beam by Benefit. A peachy-pink flush was added to the apples of the cheeks with Peachykeen by MAC.
Lastly the lips were made pink with NYX’s Darling lipstick and Revlon Colorburst lipgloss in Strawberry.
I’m trying out more drugstore and wallet friendly products these days so my looks are easier to recreate! I wore this look on a trip to the bank and it was quite funny all of the looks that I was getting. I’m sure they might’ve thought I was getting ready for my night job! lol It’s fun wearing bold looks out when you’re doing random errands, it makes for a quite eventful occasion! 😛
