{holiday how to : glittery eyes}

all-that-glitters-hed
glittery-eyes2

. . . among all the many beautiful things to look forward to this holiday season, as if the candlelight and soirées, the sequined evening gowns and glasses of rosé were not enough -- now, [and perhaps most exciting of all], insanely glamorous & glittery eyes that will light up those festive nights . . .



{how to : video & steps}




S T E P O N E
begin by creating a base : prime the eyelid and the area beneath the eye with concealer and to ensure it stays put, dust on a layer of loose, matte powder

S T E P T W O
blend a powder eyeshadow over the eyelid; to make gaps less noticeable, choose a shade which complements your choice of glitter

S T E P T H R E E

take the eyeshadow underneath the eye and blend it along the lower lashes; then, work a black eyeliner pencil across the top and bottom lash lines, and along the upper and lower inner rims

S T E P F O U R
apply two coats of black mascara to the lashes

S T E P F I V E
dip a flat, synthetic eyeshadow brush in glitter glue [here or here] and press it over the eyelid, avoiding the lash line, as the adhesive can sting if it enters the eye

S T E P S I X
pick up some glitter on the same brush [as used in step five] and, using the flat side, pat it onto the eyelid; keep adding more until you build up the desired intensity

[to prevent glitter from falling onto the face, hold a folded tissue below the eye with your free hand; if, despite your best efforts, you still get specks of glitter on your cheeks, simply use a clean mascara wand to remove them, by swiping the brush over any stray glitter particles to pull them from the skin without ruining your foundation; clean the brush by running your fingers over the bristles, and then repeat the process if necessary]

S T E P
S E V E N

and c'est tout / that's it! all set for just about anything -- the office, the gallery, a dinner date, and for all the holiday soirée invitations that are already beginning to pile up . . .
