It’s glitter time! I absolutely love messing around with glitters and festival looks, and even though festival season is quickly coming to an end I thought I would do a look anyways, I mean who can’t be tempted with glitter! I didn’t have a particular idea for this look I just completely went with the flow and this is what happened.
For my base this time I used the Estee Lauder The Illuminator because it’s a primer that just has a hint of sheen in so it illuminates your face ever so slightly. I then applied my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation and concealer with my damp beauty blender, both in 1W1. And I used my Rimmel Stay Matte powder in Translucent over the top. For my eyebrows I used my NYX Tame and Fame in Espresso with my NYX 18 brush.
For my eyes I started with my Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion and then used my Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette. I used Tempera all over my eye lid and then went in with Red Ochre over my lid and blended it out well. This has got be easily one of my favourite reds I’ve ever tried. The only other product I used was in the Morphe 35N palette, a darker red in the outer corner to add dimension. I applied the Red Ochre under my eyes too.
For my eyeliner I used the NYX Matte Liquid Liner and added my Tatti Lashes in TL31. Tattoo Lashes do beautiful thick lashes, you can check out their full range here. Then I applied mascara to my top and bottom lashes.
I used my Makeup Revolution contour kit to contour my cheeks and added some blush was my Makeup Revolution Blush palette in Sugar and Spice, using my NYX 08 brush. And I just bronzed up my face using the Makeup Revolution Baked Bronzer in Ready To Go (you can tell I like my MuR face products!). I also used my Makeup Revolution Baked Highlighter in Golden Lights, my favourite thing, to highlight my cheeks and under my brow bone, along my nose and on my cupids bow.
For my glittery cheeks I used my Ten10 Cosmetics Chocolate Glitter Pot first just below the wings of my eyeliner. It’s a fine gel glitter so you don’t need any adhesive. And then I used the Metallic Bronze one just underneath that as the chocolate one is more as a brown whereas the other is more of an orange, check out the full range here. I used them as a base and then over the top used my Dust and Dance glitters.
I applied a small bit of Vaseline over the top of the fine glitter and used a small brush to apply the Dust and Dance glitter in The Ringmaster. I love these little pots of glitter, you can get any colour or shape you’d like and they’re perfect for festivals and concerts. So I packed that on and then applied a bit of Vaseline in the inner corners of my eyes and applied 5 little hexagonal silver pieces of glitter. This adds just an extra pop of glitter.

And finally for my lips I actually used an eye pencil in brown to line my lips. I’ve used this for so long, and just haven’t quite found a lip liner in the same colour. It works pretty well too! Then I used my NYX Lingerie liquid lipstick in Teddy, my favourite brown out of the collection. To make it a bit more interesting I used the fine Ten10 glitter in Metallic Bronze on the inner part of my lips kind of like a highlight and then applied a line of gold glitter down my lips using a Technic Gold Glitter Liner.
And that’s the look finished! I liked this look as I had no idea which direction I was even going to go in. I think it’s a great look for a festival or a party and can be changed using a different colour instead of red.
