BEAUTY BAR: Glitter Glow

Personally, I’m not a beauty guru. I don’t even wear makeup. However, I am able to recognize an amazing beauty look when I see one. So, when I saw this Fashionista wearing glitter with her otherwise casual look, I had to find out her tips and tricks for the look.

Glitter was the biggest makeup trend at Coachella this year. However, there are ways to rock this trend without shelling out hundreds of dollars for a music festival. This Fashionista proves that. She incorporates this glitter highlight into an everyday look for any college girl/guy.

I asked this Fashionista all about her process of doing her makeup for this look. First, do your normal face makeup. Second, do a normal highlight. Third, where you normally would do your highlight, use lash or glitter glue to attach the glitter to your skin. Fourth, use cosmetic grade glitter for your eyes and face. This Fashionista does not recommend using glitter from a craft store because it could be painful to remove. It would be okay to use it on your skin but definitely not your eyes. You’re finished and ready to go take on the world with your glitter glow look.

Besides her glitter highlight, this Fashionista has other interesting components of her makeup look. She has an interesting look for her eyes with lighter eyeshadow colors, like matte yellow, shimmer yellow, and a deep matte hot pink color on her lower lash line from the Morphe 35B Palette. Then she mixed in a shimmer pink from the BH Cosmetics Galaxy Chic Palette with that pink from the Morphe Palette to create the eye look. For a palette with a wide range of colors, try the Make Up For Ever Artist Palette Volume 3. Finally, she tied it together with a darker shade from Wet N Wild’s MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick. For a similar liquid matte lipstick, try this BareMinerals GEN NUDE. This Fashionista says she purposefully contrasts a darker lip with a lighter eye look when doing her makeup.

In order to let her beauty look be the main focus of her entire outfit, this Fashionista decided to go with a more neutral look. She paired her thrifted skirt with a black cami from Forever 21. Keeping her accessories tame, she went with all black pieces: sunglasses from Francesca’s, a thrifted purse, and hi-top shoes from Forever 21.

One thing is for sure, even with an average cute outfit, this Fashionista manages to stand out with her glitter highlight look. If you’re looking for a new makeup look to spice up your everyday beauty routine, try to add some glitter and rock it with confidence.
