You know what this time of the year means... It's time for glitter. If you thought it's the season for giving and all that, you were wrong. It's time for glitter. Full stop. :P (Just joking!!)
I'm not the biggest fan of glitter during the most of the year. It multiplies. Don't ask me how, but it does. You'll have applied it to your eyelids and mysteriously find it in your shoes by the end of the night, I promise you. But even I have to admit that there's something magical about it in special occasion makeup. It just looks awesome in candle light and can add a little extra dazzle to any look. And since Christmas is all about the gold (this would be a great look for New Years too, just add some statement lashes!), this glittery golden eye is perfect for the occasion.
Let's get to the steps.
I also have on lip balm. :)
The first product I used doubled as a primer too. It's a cream mineral eyeshadow from Gosh, which is this really pretty golden brown. I've been using this product for a while now and I love it!! It's really long wearing, though I don't know if I would call it 'waterproof'... Sweat proof, definately. But it washes off in water just like normal shadows.
It's very creamy and applies so easily. I love this!!
I also added some to the crease.
I applied this from the inner corner to the center of the eyelid.
Glitter, as you know, is messy. So to clean up any fallout, I took a piece of sticky tape, pressed it against the back of my hand a few times and then used it to pick up stray glitters.
It's not the blackest black I've ever used, but I do like the fine point.
I set the liner with an angled brush and Noir from Sleek.
I've been using this one from Essence and I've got a review ready for you! Watch this space.
A little lipgloss, and the look is complete!
I've got a great and super easy nail art look scheduled for this week too, which will look awesome with your Christmas outfit! So keep your eyes peeled for that!
Stay beautiful and be kind to animals,
