We find the biggest trends from the fashion and beauty world and teach you how you can do it yourself (as fast and easy as possible)! Each week we’ll bring you something new for either nails, hair, make-up, clothes or accessories. I’ll take you through each major step and explain how to do it while also giving quick tips on how you can create something similar just as easily. Let’s get started!
Step 1: Glitter.
Glitter, glitter, glitter! We’ve seen so many celebs sporting crazy glitter eye make up all over the place. Usually we see them on the red carpet, performing or in music videos but making the look wearable for everyday can sometimes be tough. This look allows you to wear glitter without over doing it! Since gold is really trendy for the season, we decided to pick up an affordable gold Sephora brand glitter liquid liner. Following the shape of your eye, apply a coat of the glitter liner about twice the width of the brush. Let this coat dry and then apply a second (maybe even third) coat for a solid glitter line.
Step 2: Shadow.
For this step I used Urban Decay’s Half Baked. Any gold colour will work, but make sure that it is a bold, pigmented gold because you want this colour to show up. I used a thin brush a lined right under the lower lashes. This colour underneath really brightens up the eyes and makes them stand out a lot more. Although I stuck with just gold and gold, you can try coordinating your outfit with that accent colour underneath. For example, if you’re wearing blue, purple or green in your outfit, you can use one of those colours underneath as a substitute.
Step 3: Liner.
The last step really cleans up the look and makes the gold stand out a little bit more. Using a liquid liner create a thin line on the upper lash line. We don’t recommend you use a marker style liner or pencil because this will be difficult to go over the glitter. For this I used the black liquid liner from Victoria’s Secret makeup collection. Finish off the look with mascara on the top and the bottom lashes and you’ll be good to go!
Turn this look from day to night in 2 more easy steps! Take a black pencil liner and line the lower waterline. Next take the same liquid liner in step 3 and turn the top liner into a cat eye. To see how to do a perfect cat eye, see this video we did with Lise Watier [here]. You can add a bit more of the glitter as an extra option as well, but it really depends on how brave you want to be with it!
