Sparkly Make-Up Essentials

When I am in sparkles I am the happiest I can be! I love it – it is not very often that I get to put them on so any opportunity I get I wear them. I got this fabulous number for a friend’s birthday and I also got to get a little more glam with my make up. I kind of do the same makeup when I go out, but I amp up it up with more highlighter or sparkly eyeshadow. I thought I would share with you my must-have going out makeup essentials and the best glitter eyeshadow – that does not require ANY GLUE or anything to stick it on your face!

I also played around with some colour – normally I am a browns and pinks kind of girl when it comes to eyeshadow (or if I am really lazy I use my bronzer) but this time I played with some purple. I think purple eyeshadow! Now that is a crazy thought for me, I still have some PTSD from 18th year on this earth where I thought it was a great idea to put blue all over my eyeballs! It was not a good result and scarred me. Purple is not too scary, blend it in with some brown and you are good, plus if you have brown eyes it makes them pop too.

The Best Neutral Palette

If you are looking for a neutral eyeshadow palette, which has some sparkle in it too, I highly recommend this one!

Here are my top 3 tips for wearing sparkly eye makeup:

  1. make sure your base is as flawless as possible, once you have applied the eyeshadow go back and brush off any fall out with a clean brush and apply more of your base product.
  2. Go simple on your lip product, it does not have to be a nude colour if you do not want to. But make sure there isn’t too much texture everywhere! Glossy lips could be too much.
  3. Wear blush!!!! Pop some colour on your face for that extra glow and colour.
  4. Bonus point – do not wear a glittery highlight! It could be just too much – all you need is a highlighter that gives a lit from within kind of look.
