Make Up Tutorial - Easy Valentine's Day Glitter Eyes



Hey all. Tomorrow is Valentine's Day and I am extremely excited! Just want to share my Valentine's eye make up look. Instead of the traditional pink or red, I decided to use orange and some glitter =) Well, it depends on invidual preferences and personality of course. So, here are the products and I use and I will detail how to create this look step by step.

First, I primed my lids with an eye primer as a base to prevent my shadows from fading. You can use a primer like Urban Decay Primer Potion or Two Faced Shadow Insurance. I am just using e.l.f Mineral Eyeshadow Primer and this is an awesome primer though it is only USD3! ;)

The sweet orange color I used is from the Cover Girl Tropical Fusion Quad! I love this quad! Using my MAC 217 brush, I applied the orange color all over my lids and into the crease as well as my lower lash line. I used the sonia kashuk angled eye brush for the lower lash line. Remember to blend the edges so that there are no harsh lines. I am still practicing on the blending. Practice makes perfect, right? ;)

Next, I took a clear lip gloss from Rimmel and coated it lightly over the orange shadow on my lid, crease and lower lash line. This serves as a sticky base for the glitters to adhere to. Make sure you do not apply too much of the lip gloss because it will crease very quickly.
Now comes the fun part - the glitter! =) I used a concealer brush to DAB (not sweep) the glitters more onto my lid and crease and a little on the lower lash line over the orange shadow. Remember to dab the glitter on gently and make sure you use cosmetic grade glitter. I am using NYX Glitter Mania in Apple.


On my browbone, I used a matte cream color since we already have so much glitter on the lids :) This is from Averine Skin Caring Eyeshadow Duo in ED06 Coffee Break.

Then, I lined my upper lash line with Majolica Majorca Liquid Eyeliner Pen in Black and winged out the liner for a more dramatic look and applied Cyber Colors Eye Definer Pencil in Deep Black 01 on my lower waterline. I finished the look with false lashes and a coat of Loreal Telescopic Mascara.




I hope you guys like this and stay tune for more tutorials.
Happy Valentine's Day and be safe.
