BEAUTY BAR: Go For Glitter

March 15th, 2016 at 2:00am

Every morning our faces are a blank canvas waiting to be transformed into a look that matches our personality, mood and outfit. Makeup is one of the most fun ways that we get to express ourselves. I am always seeking new techniques, trends and products to switch up my look. Lately my favorite trend is glitter. Bring on the glitter, day or night, it is a great way to draw some extra attention to your face.

I spotted this Fashionista rocking a gorgeous face of makeup on her way to class. I love how she paired an otherwise simplistic outfit with an edgy pop of color on her eyes. This look is all about the eyeshadow. Purple and pink shades are great eyeshadow colors that complement blue-eyed beauties, like herself. For this look, she fades the lighter pink color from the inner corner into a panel of purple on the middle of her lid. She then faded into another panel of pink on the middle right of her lid and finished her outer corner with the purple color. What I love most about her technique is how she used the same purple eyeshadow on her lower lid instead of a basic eyeliner. Finally, she tops off her lashes with jet black mascara which really opens up her eyes.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To complete this look, you’ll need an eyeshadow primer, two shades of glitter eyeshadow and a black mascara. Since the focus of this look is on the eyes, her face makeup and lips are very subtle. However, she is wearing a light blush and neutral lip balm.
