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.
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.
Glossy eyes have always been one of my favorite looks. The subtle sheen the gloss creates can instantly brighten up your eyes and give off a fresh, luminous glow to your whole face. But while they are pretty to look at, they do have the tendency to crease and migrate. Besides, finding the right product to achieve the look and creating them itself can be tough. I have tried a few of the eye glosses out there and trust me, most of them have failed me miserably (and I don’t even have oily eyelids!!) So instead of investing in a gazillion products that claim to give you glossy eyes that last, I suggest you use good old Vaseline or a clear lip gloss. Below is a brief tutorial on how you can create a natural glossy eye. Hope you guys like it!
Using a base prior to eyeshadow application is very crucial if you want your eyeshadow to stay on longer and show up more vibrant. Below are a few methods you can prep your eyelid for eyeshadow.
* Concealer + Power
This is definitely the easiest and cheapest method. All you have to do is apply a thin layer of concealer over your eyelid and set with some loose powder. It will help soak up some of your natural oils and prevent your eyeshadow from creasing.
