Since I rarely get a night out, I always go big with my New Year’s Even makeup. Everyone else is in a festive mood, so it’s always fun to try a new look—especially one involving glitter. After all, glitter is a necessity when it comes to New Year’s partying (duh). This glitter eye makeup tutorial is the perfect way to feel gorgeous and gives you a lot of room for error if you’re a makeup newbie.
What you’ll need:
- Urban Decay – Eyeshadow Primer Potion Tube
- M.A.C. – Eye Khol in Fascinating
- Too Faced – The Natural Eye, Neutral Eye Shadow Collection
- Sally Girl – Loose Glitter Sparkle Effect in Gold Digger
- Urban Decay – 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Naked
- Black eyeliner
- Lip gloss
Step 1: Generously brush on Urban Decay’s Primer Potion from lid to brow bone.
Step 2: Using a fluffy brush and “Velvet Revolver” in the Too Faced palette, brush all over the crease.
Step 3: Using “Heaven” in the Too Faced palette, highlight the brow bone.
Blend dark brown into crease
Step 4: Now, using a blending brush and “Sexpresso” from the same Too Faced palette, carefully blend into the crease to the center of the lid, creating a V-like motion.
Use white liner to fill in lid
Step 5: Using your M.A.C Fascinating eyeliner, fill in your lid.
Step 6: Dip your brush in the Sally Girl glitter pot and gently pat the loose glitter onto the lid until you no longer see the white eyeliner.
Step 7: Next, line your top lash line with the black eyeliner of your choice and your bottom lash line with your favourite gold eyeshadow to brighten the eye. Add mascara, and you’re all done with the eye!
Step 8: Using Urban Decay’s Naked Lip Pencil, line and fill in lips; you can add a clear lipgloss on top if you prefer a shinier effect.
Strap on some stilettos and take on the New Year looking fabulous.
