At party time, glitter is a girl’s best friend!
For eyelids that sparkle like shiny disco balls, watch the video tutorial and follow the step-by-step instructions below:
Makeup artist tip! To make eye makeup application easier, keep your eyes open, tilt your head backwards (to stretch the skin on your eyelid taut) and look into a mirror.
1). Begin by creating a base. Prime the eyelid and the area beneath the eye with concealer(a), and to ensure it stays put, dust on a layer of loose, matte powder(b).
2). Blend a powder eyeshadow(c) over the eyelid.
Makeup artist tip! To make gaps less noticeable, choose a shade which complements your choice of glitter.
3). To give the eye extra oomph, take the eyeshadow(c) underneath the eye and blend it along the lower lashes; then, work a black eyeliner pencil(d) across the top and bottom lash lines, and along the upper and lower inner rims.
4). For a fan-like flutter, apply two coats of black mascara(e) to the lashes.
5). Dip a flat, synthetic eyeshadow brush(f) in glitter glue(g) and press it over the eyelid.
Makeup artist tip! Avoid the lash line, as the adhesive can sting if it enters the eye.
6). Pick up some glitter(h) on the same brush (as used in Step 5) and, using the flat side, pat it onto the eyelid. Keep adding more until you build up the desired intensity.
Makeup artist tip! To prevent fall-out onto the face, hold a folded tissue below the eye with your free hand. If, despite your best efforts, you still get specks of glitter on your cheeks, don’t panic. Simply use a clean mascara wand to remove them. Swipe the brush over any stray glitter particles and it will pull them from the skin without ruining your foundation. Clean the brush by running your fingers over the bristles, and then repeat the process if necessary.
Coordinate your look … wear matching eyes and nails!
For disco-licious fingers and toes, simply add glitter to clear nail polish and paint it on.
