Glitter Tears

Hey Everyone! I came up with this look as I was having a little play about the last day. I've been admiring @alyssamarieartistry 's fabulous work on her Instagram, and been particularly intrigued by this upside down triangle sandwiched smoky lower lashline (there's probably easier ways of describing that hahah ) that she does a lot, mainly because I know it doesn't really work on me what with my wrinkly puffy eye bags. However, I do like to push my own boundaries when it comes to my own makeup, and go for colours and techniques that I don't particularly like (on myself) and through this process usually end up loving them. 
Here I used mainly M.A.C shadows; Quarry as my upper crease and lower lashline (eye bag) transition shade, Sketch as the main lid colour, Shroom under the brow and Blanc Type in the inner corner. To deepen up Sketch right in the outer-V I used Royal by Smashbox and the colour in the middle of my upper and lower lid is YDK by Urban Decay

I popped a bit of Grimas glitter in the shade 075 on top of YDK on the lower and upper lid in that upside-down triangle shape, kind of like a tear. The lashes are by Eylure.

On my brows I went for my absolute favourite combo of Brow Wiz, Brow Powder Duo and Clear Brow Gel all by Anastasia Beverly Hills. 



Hope you like it! 

Much Love xxx

  5. What do you use to adhere the glitter? I've been using a thin layer of duo and place the glitter on top but this doesn't work well on lower lash area. Thx

    1. I know what you mean, I just sprayed my brush with M.A.C. fix+ and adhered it that way x
