Pink & Gold Glitter Look!

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?

  1. Hi Ashley!
    I’m loving the glitter, but I worry about it flaking off and getting into my eyes. I wear contact lenses so “stuff” getting into the eyes is never a good idea. Did you have any trouble with that?
    Thanks again for sharing!

    1. The UD glitter adhesive that I used worked really well and I didn’t have many problems with the glitter moving around throughout the day but the glitter I used is honestly too big to really be eye-safe though. With really fine, eye-safe glitter and a good adhesive, you probably wouldn’t have many issues!

  2. Wonderful look, and thanks again for telling us how you created it! Pretty Rebel is my favorite palette of all time but I feel it doesn’t get the attention it deserves, so this will be nice new way to use it!

    1. Glad you liked it! I feel like I never give it enough love either but all of the shades are really gorgeous.

  3. By far one of my favorite eye looks you’ve done! Love the unexpected combination of purple & gold metallic….looks AMAZING with your eye color! Think the lack of liner makes it even more beautiful, as does the use of gold on the lower lash line.
    Which type of glitter do you prefer to use….yours looks so finely milled– which I find to be a challenge when choosing glitter around the eye. I’ve often applied a product only to conclude that I look like a toddler that went loose in the craft box haha. Oohh, I’m envisioning cobalt and gold together. The possibilities are endless!

    1. Ohh, cobalt and gold would be so striking!! I’m using Urban Decay’s Heavy Metal Loose Glitter here but despite how it may look in these pictures, the glitter is actually rather large and probably not eye safe. I looked and looked and UD said nothing about whether it was or was not but I’m pretty sure it isn’t. I just don’t have any other glitter really and I was desperate for some sparkle in my life! lol
