I started with a bare eye, no primer necessary this time:
Next, I applied some Buxom Stay-There cream eyeshadow in Pug to my upper eyelid:
Then, I lined my upper and lower lash lines with black pencil eyeliner:
Using my finger, I smudged my upper and lower lash line liner:
For added drama, I layered Sephora Eyeshadow in Starry Sky over the smudged liner:
Such impact! Starry Sky is a shimmery shade of black, packed with tons of silvery micro-glitter particles. It was much more pigmented than I expected. LOVE!
To complete the look, I used Ultraflesh Gold Standard mascara on my lashes and applied a pair of my favorite glittery Daiso lashes:
The Glitz & Glam products that I used for the rest of my face are as follows:
Bare Escentuals All-Over Color in Glee for my cheeks.
Josie Maran Argan Oil Illuminator to highlight my cheekbones, the bridge of my nose, and my cupid's bow.
And Stila Lip Glaze in Vanilla glossed over Smashbox lip pencil in Smashing Muse.
It's important to use shimmer creams, such as Benefit High Beam or Josie Maran Argan Oil Illuminator, subtly as too much can make you look greasy as opposed to luminous. My trick is to apply them to my highlight areas after I apply tinted moisturizer, but before I apply pressed powder. That way, I get a radiant glow as opposed to a too-shiny effect. Placement along my cheekbones, bridge of my nose, and cupid's bow gives the illusion of more sculpted cheeks, a taller, slimmer nose, and fuller lips!
