Tis the season for some glitter and glam! Am I right or am I right?!
… I’ll try to keep this one short and sweet
Step One: Pick a gloss that doesn’t have much the tint to it (clear works best if you have it) if it has shimmer to it thats even better! I like to use the back of my hand when mixing most products. This helps warm up the product for a smoother and more rich application.. Also I’m lazy and this makes one less thing I have to clean up!
Step Two: Choose a cosmetic glitter to mix in with the gloss. I found that when a really finely ground glitter mixes in with gloss it creates more of extreme metallic effect, and that a chunkier glitter gives a more textured glitter look. So i mixed both kinds to see what would happen…
Step Three: Get a good amount of that gloss out for mixing..when you think you’ve gotten enough get some more! You’ll be mixing in quite a bit of glitter and once you start mixing them together the glitter is going to make the gloss pretty thick and eat a lot of that gloss up.. so the more the better. Start with pinches of the loose glitter and keep mixing it in until you get the consistency and color pay off you’re looking for. As your mixing you’ll be able to see as you go how the color will turn out.
Step Four: Use a brush to apply (using your finger will absorb too much gloss and give an uneven application.)
Using your brush swirl the products together to mix it into your new gloss you’ve just made!
…..Pretty easy huh??
This NYX eyeshadow was bomb! I bought it about three months ago and never used it for some reason. I did think that a color like this probably wouldn’t show up very true to how it looked in the pot once I put it on my lids, but it was perfect! Not too great for blending so I would recommend staying away from the crease area but for building a nice base it worked out really well!
