Plum Twinkle EOTD!

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 21 - 2013

Do you know what I can’t get enough of? Glitter. I know, I know… it’s not Christmas anymore and I’m not telling you anything new but seriously, I am rebelling against my 30s like you wouldn’t believe and in the classiest way possible (if I do say so myself!)

I may be a little too old to rock glitter eyeliner, I’ve never been one for glitter lashes and my rapidly-dilating pores are in danger of swallowing any glitter that comes in contact with them but you can still enjoy a subtle glitter infusion without creating a “wrong season!” scene.

All you need is some cosmetic-grade glitter, my favourites are by Victorian Disco Cosmetics (Tac Nuke is lush) and your favourite cream eyeshadow. Create your base look, it doesn’t need to be complicated, I often only do one shade across the lid and blended up into the crease. Once you’re happy with how that looks (don’t give it too much time to set), take a synthetic flat brush (like a concealer brush) and pat some of the glitter over the top. Not too much, you don’t want solid glitter, just enough to catch the light as you turn your head.

I much prefer this to using shimmery shadows (think Sleek/MUA) which I’m starting to discover can look quite ageing now that I’m on the other side of 30. This way, I get the best of both worlds!

Don’t give up on glitter ladies, it makes the world a better place.

  2. There is nothing wrong with a bit a bit of grown up glitter. r II really like the colour combinations together and that there is enough glitter to catch the light. Good for everyday glitter as well :) x

    This is beautiful!

    I’m having a weird thing with eyeshadow and ageing at the moment. Although I’m only (just) 24, my eyes are already quite wrinkly/loose skin-y. I’ve found that shimmery eyeshadow looks fine, but matt eyeshadow looks bloody awful and makes me look as though the eyes of a 50 year old have been transplanted on to my face. Any clues as to why this is happening, anyone? Is it just because I’m using cheap (Sleek, usually) eyeshadows?

  4. I started loving glittery looks and I still love them. My go-to shadows for glittery looks are Dior. Beautiful EOTD.
