Smokey Glitter; Subtle or Dramatic?

These are from 2 different weekends but I wanted to do a glittery cut crease & a subtle glitter clubbing look. I used the same Sleek Palette- my go to, dramatic-smokey-eye look Bad Girl in both looks with Glitter by Nyx. These are definitely way too OTT for during the day but perfect for an eye-catching night look.


Silver Glitter & Blue Dramatic Cut-Crease

Bad lighting in this look, my skin looks terrible :/. I think having the flu that week would have something to do with it, too. But I just remembered, the Fiancee has a horrible bluish tinged light, yuck!

Face : (In both) Australis Paparazzi Perfect Foundation
MAC Peachykeen
Lips: Covergirl lip perfection l/s in Kiss
Eyes: Firstly I applied The Face Shop Dual Eye Colour in 'Silver' to the eyelid, and cut into the crease with Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in 'Black Bean' and also on the lower lash line & waterline. On the lid I applied the lightest grey 'Blade' from my Sleek Bad Girl. Over Black Bean I placed 'Abyss' from Bad Girl & blended with 'Obnoxious' (both blues, the darkest first) coming as far into the inner corner as I liked. I also applied some 'Noir' right into the crease for further definition. I applied these in the same order on the lower lash line. Also highlight with 'Innocence' (shimmery white)
Now again on the lid I applied Nyx Candy Glitter Liner in Disco Ball all over, setting with the Nyx glitter in silver (loose glitter pigment).
I applied my eyeliner - Maybelline Master Precise & slightly winged it up, mascara & falsies & I'm done.

Smokey Purple, Subtle Glitter
'Goofy Smile Alert!!!'

Face: Foundation as above, Blush: MAC Dollymix
Contouring: Coastal scents 15 concealer (dark shades) ,Nude by Nature Eye Definition loose powder.
Lips: (new fave combo!) Nyx Harmonica & Australis Boogie Woogie. (Harmonica is too frosty on it's own so these L/S are a perfect pair!)

Eyes: After primer apply Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in 'Slate' to the eyelid. Blend up slightly into crease. Apply 'Gun Metal' from Sleek Bad Girl (medium shimmery gray) on top, blending out. Apply 'Twilight' to the crease & blend out with 'Rebel' (both purples again from Bad Girl), do the same on the lower lash line & blend with a skin-toned coloured eyeshadow. Take Nyx Candy Glitter Liner in 'Disco Queen' on top of Gun Metal and then to set apply Fyrinnae loose eyeshadow in Immortal. {{As the shades on the lid are verry similar you will only catch a glimpse of the glitter which can make your eyes look more sparkly when they hit the lights at a flattering angle.}}
Apply your fave black eyeliner to the waterline & lash line, add mascara & falsies to complete the look.

Love this look on Makeupgeek if you would like :)

  6. Both are great ! btw, do you fill in your eyebrows?

    1. Thanks Iris :) Yes I do, but it doesn't look like it here, doesn't it? Lately I have been doing it stronger and defining them, though :)
