Remember I bought these Eye Kandy glitters from Enchantra? (well, yeah it has been only 2 days since I posted that so you probably do remember… doh) I thought they looked so gorgeous and fun and sparkly and I just had to try them immediately.
So I picked the first colour and got to work. I didn’t have a glitter glue or anything so I had to improvise a bit. But I still think it turned out pretty awesome. Glitter FTW!
I have a soft spot for multicolour glitter. Glitters with all the same colours are great too but when there’s more than 1 colour involved I just melt and get greedy. 😉 So I picked Twizzle Stick Sugar glitter. The Sugar glitters are supposed to be colourful but not solid colours. They’re translucent with a hint of colour… Well, I think they’re pretty colourful but I’m not complaining.
When I made this look I didn’t really know what to do, I figured I couldn’t blend the eyeshadow around the glitter later because of fall-out-danger.
So I just did the eyeshadow first and after that I applied the glitter with some gel from a Gosh glitterliner. It worked pretty good although the glitter did fall out a bit. I’ll get myself some glitterglue soon but when I bought the glitters the glue wasn’t available at Enchantra yet. Bonny and I (a friend that I shared the order with) really wanted to place that order so we didn’t wait for the glitterglue to be added to the store.
We. Want. Glitter… NOW!
And dark lipstick, just because I can… could… did. 😀
But glitter sparkles best in the sun or with flash, and because flash just didn’t do the trick the day I made these pictures, I made some pictures in the sunshine. Hard to keep your eyes open and not tearing when you look straight into the sun though, lol. *squint*
When I looked at the last few pictures I thought you could see that the glitters are translucent. You can still see the dark eyeshadow underneath and I think that looks pretty awesome. I’m thinking about buying more Eye Kandy glitters and I think I’ll want more sugar glitters. And glitter glue 😉
So what do you think of this look? Do you ever use glitters in a look and have you ever used the ones from Eye Kandy? What do you think of the colour Twizzle Stick?
