Festive Twinkling Blue Eyeliner
I’ve been having a blast playing around with the NYX Face & Body Glitters lately!! They’re so versatile and a fun way to add a little sparkle to any look. Especially during the holidays when Christmas and glitter just seem to go hand in hand, am I right?!
I’ve decided to name this week #GlitterWeek, to show you a few festive ways to use these twinkling pigments. Instead of my usual Tuesday and Friday schedule, you can expect a post on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday this week!
We’re kicking it off with this royal blue glitter liner! I love how these loose pigments easily transform with a little help from the NYX Glitter Primer. I squeezed a pea size amount onto the back of my hand and shook a decent amount of blue glitter directly overtop. I combined the two together until all of the colour was incorporated. Then I picked up some of the creamy mixture onto a small brush and applied it along my lash line as if it were a gel liner. It wasn’t quite as pigmented or sparkly as I had anticipated, so at the end I used the same brush and pressed some extra dry glitter directly on top of the wing I created.
For some reason I always associate navy blue and sparkly things with New Years! I think it’s because I once bought a sequinned blue and silver tube dress, with the intent of wearing it to an end of year party, which didn’t happen…
My point is, I think this look would be especially perfect for ringing in 2017! Although it’s great for any day or any occasion during the year too, and because these glitters come in a variety of hues, this look can be recreated using any colour of the rainbow! Or ALL colours, creating a rainbow glitter liner…how cool would that be?! I may have to try it…
