Okay, so here we go again with tutorials. I found some glitter which was collecting dust in my stash since I rarely ever use it in make up, I decided it is time to make something of it. By the way, Coastal Scents has nice and affordable glitter so you can order it from there. I used Flamingo hologram glitter which looks amazing on black base but you will see that during the tutorial.

Here we go.

Eyes:

e.l.f. primer

Essence Black Mania eyepencil

Catrice 220 The Violent Violet eyeshadow

Coastal Scents Inter Blue Sparks mica

Coastal Scents Flamingo Hologram glitter

MAC Carbon eyeshadow

Pink e/s from 120 palette

Lancome Hypnose mascara

Face:

Art Deco Rich Treatment Foundation

Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre

Benefit Thrrrob blush

Lips:

Revlon Matte 001 Nude Attitude lipstick


Since there will be a huge glitter fallout, I decided to put my foundation on when I am done with the eyes. I just applied a  bit of foundation on lids to even out my skin color.

Apply e/s primer all over the lid, up to the eyebrows.

I used greasy black eyepencil as base for glitter. Apply it on lid and little bit over the crease.

Smudge out the line.

Apply violet eyeshadow above the crease.

Blend it up and down but dont go too far.

Apply lighter eyeshadow in inner corner of the eye to give more contrast between black and violet.

Apply glitter all over the black on the lid. Use flat eyeshadow brush or fingers. Keep your eyes closed.

If you want to pull out cat eye note on this look, draw a line on outer eye corner using a black eyeshadow. This is not a must so if you dont like cat eyes, skip it.

A bit above the blended violet eyeshadow, apply a pink e/s with fluffy blending brush to give it additional kick. If thats too much for you, skip it and just take beige shimmery e/s to highlight the area.

Line the bottom lashline with e/s you used in crease and also line your waterline with black eye pencil.

And mascara fot the end, of course. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Since I photographed this tutorial in artificial light, here is additional photo taken on daylight where you can see how glittery and intensive this combination really is.

I combined it with a bit of pink blush and matte nude lips. Keep the rest of face make up to minimum because eyes like these are very noticable.
