Lavender Glitter Eyes

It's always great when your client let's you do any makeup look of your choice and gives you no rules or restrictions. That is the way I came up with this look for Bethany and I couldn't be happier with it. She was attending a concert and just wanted to look great with a little bit of an edge. I mixed lavenders, greys and blacks and topped the look with fine glitter to make her eyes pop. Keep reading to hear the products and learn how to get the look!

1. Prime the eyes to ensure long lasting, crease-less performance. I used Benefit Stay Don't Stray because it also neutralizes any discoloration.
2. Smudge a taupe or soft grey pencil along the lash-line and blend it up onto the eyelid to serve as a subtle tinted base.
3. Apply a soft lavender shadow to the eyelid and blend it up into the socket. I used a mix of shadows from Jane Iredale and Stila.
4. Smudge a soft black pencil onto the outer third of the eyes and blend it upwards towards the crease.
5. Pat and blend plum/black shadow over the top of the pencil to get rid of any harsh lines.
6. Tap glitter onto the center of the eye using your ring finger; I used Make Up For Ever Diamond Powder #13.
7. Draw a super thin line using a black liquid liner along the top lash-line and add false lashes; I used a long wispie style by Kiss.
8. Blend plum/black and grey shadows together to define the outer portion of the lower lash-line, and use a shimmery champagne to highlight the inner corners.
9. Finish by gently filling in the brows using individual hair-strokes for a natural look, then set with clear brow gel.
