Step By Step How To
Since we are doing a dark eye, start with the eyes before anything else for minimal cleanup.

1. Fill in eyebrows as needed.

2. Apply a cream-based black shadow on the eyelid as a base. This will create more intensity and give the glitter something to grab onto.

3. Pat a black-bluish eyeshadow (MAC Later Pigment) on top of the cream shadow.

4. Dip a wet eyeshadow brush into some blue glitter (MAC Reflects Duo Purple Glitter) and pat directly on top of the black shadow. Blend off the edges carefully without rubbing off the glitter.

5. Using a wet brush, apply a teal color (MAC Partylicious Pigment) on the lower eye. Applying it wet will make the color pop and stay on longer.

6. Line the upper lashline with a black liquid liner.

7. Highlight the brow bone with a shimmery light color (Urban Decay Virgin Eyeshadow).

8. Apply several coats of black mascara on your top lashes before adding fake lashes.

9. Now that we are done with the eyes, clean up any fallouts with a Q-tip dipped in eye makeup remover. To remove glitter stuck on your face, you can also use scotch tape.

10. Apply foundation and concealer as needed.

11. Warm up your cheeks with a peachy shade (MAC Utterly Game Blush). Highlight the bridge of your nose with a light beige color and contour the jawline with a matte brown color (MAC Sculpt and Shape Powder).

12. Finish with a coral lip gloss (Nuxe Rose Legendaire Gloss).

      I don’t always set my foundation with powder, but when I do, I like MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural, Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Loose Powder and Estee Lauder Double Wear Mineral Rich Loose Powder Makeup SPF 12.
