Clean & Prep Skin

Cleanse, tone and moisturize your skin with your normal skin care routine, but don’t start applying foundation just yet. We suggest you use a moisturizer with a decent SPF – try something like Simple Kind To Skin+ Protecting Moisture Cream SPF 30  (1)

For this look we’re going to be going for it with glitter and you won’t  want your skin to look the same as your eyes. (For this reason we’ll be doing the foundation last).

Go Glittery

Starting with the eyelid apply Mac Indianwood Pro Longwear Paint Pot (2) all over the lid and crease of eye using a firm flat brush. This product will help protect the eyelid and prevent creasing. Next use Mac Pro Eyeliner Mixing Medium (3) very lightly in the centre of the lid to give extra staying power to any glitter products. Follow this by applying a glitter gel liner such as Collection Cosmetics Glam Crystals Funk Gel Liner (3) on top of the lid this will also help stick the glitter to the eye.

Keep It Clean 

Place a tissue underneath the lower lashline and before the mixing medium and gel liner dries pat Mac Gold Glitter(4) all over the lid with a firm flat brush. We used a mix of Mac Pro Glitters – create your own colours by mixing different glitters together.  Add more gel liner and  glitter if needed and also line the lower lash line with the glitter gel liner. To finish the eye makeup just add your favorite mascara.

 Freshen Up Your Skin 

Freshen up your skin by first getting any specks of loose glitter of the skin. Using tape is a great way to lift off any excess. Once you’re skin is looking clear, apply a lightweight foundation all over with a Mac 188 Duo Fibre Brush (6) to get a fresh  finish. Add concealor where necessary. Keep the cheeks fresh by mixing OCC Lip Tar in Radiate (7) with a little Dr. Lipp Balm (8) on the back of your hand. Apply with the still wet Duo Fibre brush and dust in the centre of cheeks (remember on the cheeks less is more!) You can also use the Dr. Lipp Balm to add glow to the cheekbones, temples and bridge of the nose.

Lips

Finish the look by adding  OCC Lip Tar in Radiate (7) on lips with a small lip brush and add a little Dr. Lipp Balm (8) over the top for shine.
