I was off to a flat party in a casual outfit so needed my make up to dress me up a bit! I’d had a shit day and kept telling myself ‘don’t let anyone ruin your sparkle’ (cringe, yes) and decided to interpret that into my make up for the night!
I did my smokey eye as usual using all MAC eyeshadows, Malt, Embark, Expensive Pink, All That Glitters and Antiqued. I used theBalm Mary Lou Manizer highlight on the inner corner and underneath the brow as I wanted my inner corner to be really highlighted. I finished the eyes with Eylure false lashes in 117 and used a teeny bit of Maybelline gel eyeliner.
I don’t always wear eyeliner and false lashes but I recommend doing so with glitter as you really want your eyes to be a focal point and not look like the glitter is taking over your eye.
For the glitter I used a Topshop glitter pot (currently no longer available) and Glitter Lips in Midas Kiss from BeautyMart in Topshop Oxford Circus. The Glitter Lips comes with a skin friendly adhesive and wand to apply the glitter. I placed the adhesive gently around the inner corner of my eye and packed on the glitter with the wand. With my finger, I dabbed on the Topshop glitter on the inner corner and further down around the eye to blend it out. Always start with a little and build up the glitter!
