One thing I missed about living in London is definitely scouting through Boots and Superdrug for awesome drugstore finds. And during my recent trip back there in the fall, I picked up the Sleek I-Divine palette in Original (£5.49) that has quickly become one of my staples.
Adding a bit of glitter onto your eyes can instantly glam up any look and as promised, here are a few ways you can wear glitter on the eye area:
1. On The Eyelid
To use loose glitter as an eyeshadow, you will first need to apply a cream eyeshadow as a base so the glitter has something to stick onto. Next, wet an eyeshadow brush with MAC Water Base Mixing Medium and dip into the glitter. Press or pat the glitter onto your eyelid until you have achieved the look you want. Never try to blend or the glitter will fall off. Finish with liner and mascara. Clean up any fallouts with a fan brush or scotch tape.
With Christmas nearing and a schedule crammed with parties and celebration, I am sure most of you are probably wondering what makeup to wear with your party outfits.
If you ask me, glitter is definitely the way to go. Why? ‘Cos glitter = instant glamor. You can wear it on the eyes, on the cheeks and even on the lips. The key is to focus on one feature and play it up. Glitter all over is simply an overkill.
Below is a FOTD of me wearing glitter on my eyes. I will also cover the different ways you can use glitter to play up your eyes shortly.
At $50 a pop, NARS Firming Foundation is definitely not your every day foundation. It contains a patented Polypeptide Firming Complex, Gatuline RP, brown algae, organic gotu kola, boswellia along with Vitamin C to reduce inflammation, relax facial muscles and promote collagen production meaning you can be wearing makeup and slowing down the aging process at the same time.
So I gave in to the teenager inside of me and saw Twilight the second day it came out *lol* While British hottie Robert Pattinson looked totally yummy in the movie, I could not help but drool over female lead Bella Swan’s makeup. Played by actress Kristen Stewart, Bella’s look is soft and natural with an innocence that is totally to die for.
So I did a tutorial on a natural glossy eye last week. Today I will cover a slightly more advanced version of the same look – a dramatic glossy eye.
Since the look involves the use of darker colors, it will require patience and practice to master it. Compared to the natural glossy eye, this also has a higher tendency to smudge. I highly suggest you save it for photoshoots or the runway.
