Eye Of The Day: Grey/Blue Glitter

Hey Loves!

Glitter and I have never been friends. Its been very unkind to me in the past and so I've steered pretty clear from it. So much so that I tread carefully around shimmery blushes too. Shimmery eye shadows are okay, and that is pretty much as far as I go with regards to light reflecting make up to avoid looking like a disco ball. However, as my wedding is approaching, I know my fear of glittery make up must come to a swift end. And so, I decided to experiment a little. I like to control where I put the glitter and, to avoid a hot mess, I thought I would rather work with glittery eyeliner as opposed to loose glitter.

And this is what I came up with.

Its a grey and dark blue smokey eye with a glittery lid. I used the glitter eyeliner all over the lid for maximum impact. I have used a white inner corner and brow bone highlight to break up the darkness of the eye shadows. Also, I think the teal eyeliner in the waterline makes a refreshing change from the usual black or nude eyeliners for a smokey eye. What do you think? I would love to know!

Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Thank you! And honestly it isn't difficult at all. It's literally grey all over the lid, blue in the crease and outer corner. Eyeliner and lashes. And theres a white highlight in the inner corner and a blue eyeliner in the waterline. Thats it! Oh and glitter on the lid -x- Have a go you'll be surprised!

  2. I love it! Hera, your looks are always gorgeous!
