Today I decided to show you how to paint your eyes with glitter. In my case, these are glitter from Lit Cosmetics, but in yours it can be any glitter, because they are all from one conveyor.
Glitter eye makeup is not a story about daytime makeup, but rather about evening makeup. And all because sequins “love” artificial lighting. It is under it that their overflows unfold, which daylight cannot catch. Therefore, it is so important to learn how to paint your eyes with sparkles so that others will appreciate their beauty to the fullest!
How to paint your eyes with glitter
Any glitter makeup does not start with them, but with ordinary eyeshadows. We need them in order to become the base for the sequins.
I start by working on the crease of the eyelid with MAC Eye Shadow Orange.
Then I bring the lower eyelid with the “Paper Bag” color from the Sleek Makeup i-Divine Ultra Mattes V2 Darks Palette.
I apply a brown shade to the outer corner, mixing with orange.
After applying the shadows, loose shadows Lime Crime The Diva Magic Dust Loose Eyeshadow using a wet method of application – moisten the brush and transfer the color to the eyelid.
Sometimes I get so addicted to makeup that I can skip a step without taking a picture of it. For example, applying green from Sleek Makeup i-Divine Ultra Mattes V2 Darks Palette in “Fern”.
And the last stage answers the question of how to paint eyes with sparkles?
First, glitter is best applied over a different eye shadow color. Then you do not need to apply them in a thick layer to cover the entire eyelid.
Secondly, the effect will depend on the color of the shadows.… If there are black shadows under them, the glitter will look completely different. I chose green shades, but be under them any other colors – burgundy, purple, blue … – the glitter will look different every time.
Therefore, I recommend buying a multicolor glitter, which is considered one of the most versatile to use. In my case, these are Lit Cosmetics glitter in Rhinestone Cowboy shade.
They can be applied using a special glitter glue. Google “Glitter Glue Eyeshadow Primer” and you will find several options.
Most bloggers know that glitter can be conveyed through a photo that is out of focus.
And this is what makeup looks like in focus.
