If you’re going to lead with glitter, a cool modern approach is to include a bit of grunge with your glitz. On a fresh and otherwise relatively unadorned face, make the eyes the focus of attention with light-catching glitter but also a dramatic gritty liner.
Keep things fresh and easy with a sheer tint of color. M.A.C.’s Next To Nothing Foundation is the most light-weight veil of color that looks like real skin, but with an enhance wand waved over it.
The Becca X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face palette is everything you need for a subtle-but-serious glow. The bronzer warms up your complexion while the blush gives you a natural flush. And then you’ve got your pick between two highlighters. Go with the Rose Gold for a candlelit vibe, but then layer the Beach Nectar highlighter on top for more of a strobe.
A dramatic eye still requires balance — like a smoky, jet-black line on your lower lashline with twinkly, glitter-topped lids. With your fingers, blend the black shade of Stila’s Magnificent Foils Liquid Eyeshadow to create a dramatic winged shape along your bottom lashes. Dot the champagne shade in the inner corners of your eyes and blend with your fingers for a multi-dimensional glittery eye.
A matte stain makes the look even more edgy — we’re going for casual imperfection here. Rub the creamy matte lip pencil on the center part of your lips and pat it in with your finger for that perfectly undone pout.
