Hello it's been a (long) while! I am not a very good blogger. Anyway here is a post.
The holidays are upon us ALREADY and I'm seeing all the festive makeup looks going around. They're all very nice, but everyone seems to be going for warm shades and glitter. I am usually not a big fan of glitter but what other occasion suits glitter better than the holidays? I have one glitter eyeshadow from Bobbi Brown in the shade Silver Lilac #26. It is pure silver sparkle with a lilac shift and it is so gorgeous when it hits the light. I love warm eyeshadows but I thought it would be nice to do something different (and colourful!) and go for a purple-y silver look which would also be nice for New Year's celebrations.
For the base, I smudge MAC's paint pot in Stormy Pink all over the lid with my finger and use a clean brush just to make sure the edges are diffused (working quickly as this sets). It is a cool-toned grey-purple shade that complements the Silver Lilac glitter so nicely. The paint pot also makes for a good long-lasting base. Then I just use my finger to pat on the Silver Lilac glitter on my lid. I use a small brush to smudge some of the Stormy Pink on my lower lash line to make things a bit more dramatic. And that's literally it. Mascara and done.
This is so quick and simple to do but looks like more effort went into it. I think that's the magic of glitter eyeshadow - it makes everything look ***extra*** (those asterisks are supposed to be like sparkles lol).
This photo was super hard to get at the right angle that shows off the eyeshadow well. It doesn't even give the glitter justice. When I'm wearing something this full on, I tend to go for very simple makeup elsewhere on the face - foundation, bronzer, and only lip balm or gloss.
Hope everyone has lovely holidays!
