Hey there! I just wanted to take a minute to share my pink and gold glitter look from the other day and tell you how I accomplished it.
For the eye shadow, I started with Makeup Geek’s Peach Smoothie as a transition shade. Next I grabbed my Too Faced Pretty Rebel Palette and applied Totally Fetch (hot pink) to the inner and outer corners of my eye and connected them through my crease. I then took Urban (medium vibrant purple) from the Urban Decay Electric Palette and used it to deepen the inner and outer corners of my lids, also connecting it through my crease. I left the center of my lids blank up until this point where I went back to the Pretty Rebel Palette and applied Instigator (bright gold) to the center of my lids. Time for the glitter! I brushed Urban Decay’s Bondage Makeup Adhesive over the gold eye shadow and pressed my glitter into the glue using a dense brush. I decided to opt out of eyeliner this day and just went straight to my favorite lashes, Siren from House of Lashes.
For my ombre lip look, I just applied MAC’s Myth Lipstick all over my lips and then dabbed a little of MAC’s Candy Yum Yum on the center of my upper and lower lip and pressed them together a few times. Quick and easy ombre effect!
My brows are my usual Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow in Medium Brown.
So now this look has gotten me on this big glitter kick where I want to add it to every look but this gold glitter is the only one I have right now! I’m going to have to break soon and get some more colors.
Glitter can really make for a gorgeous, dramatic look but days later, I’m still finding little specs of gold glitter all over the place! I’m not going to let that deter me though! How do you feel about using glitter in your makeup routine?
