Sydney’s Oktoberfest and Halloween holiday are coming up this week! It also means that it is time for us to dress up for these festivals. Also, it is too common to just wear bold makeup looks for festivals. Nowadays, you need to SHINE with glitter look! Mica Beauty’s makeup experts kindly share their tips for you to achieve this look in a few simple steps!
Achieve the Glitter Look
Begin with a smooth base makeup with face primer and Mineral Foundation Powder of your choice. Remember to wear sunscreen before applying any makeup on, because you will under the sun for hours and we do not want any of you to get sunburn or sunspots.
After applying your foundation or BB cream. Fill in your brows with a brow gel which will last longer. With a spoolie brush, mix Mica Beauty’s Glitter Powder with Stick It Glue and brush it across the brow for a fun sparkle look. The Glitter Powder comes in 4 shades with ultra-fine loose glitter that will sparkle your face and body.
Next, apply a clear lip balm to moisturise your lips and act a barrier for your lip when you apply lipstick to not strip off the moisture on your lips. To enhance your features, apply a hint of blush on the apples of your cheeks with a medium fluffy brush. Contour your jawline, hollows of your cheeks with a bronzer that is one shade darker than your skin tone. You can also contour your neck and collarbone area to boost your self-confidence by enhancing your appearance.
Eyes can be kept simple with a nude eye shadow look with simple wing eyeliner and two coats of mascara. Otherwise, you can go all out with bold colours eye shadow look or even create a shimmer eye look with bold wing eyeliner and fake eyelashes to make your eyes look bigger. To achieve the fun shimmer look, apply Stick It Glue on your eyeliner with a small eye liner brush. Then, dip the brush in Mica Beauty’s Glitter Powder with the colour of your choice and draw it along the lash line just like applying eyeliner.
Replace Highlighter with Glitter Powder
Since, we have not highlight the cheekbones yet, we are going to replace our highlighter with the Glitter Powder. Apply Mica Beauty's Stick It Glue from your cheekbones towards the temples of your face. Then with a flat eye shadow brush, apply the Glitter Powder on the Stick It Glue for a fun shimmer look. You can build up the intensity of the glitter until you are satisfied with it. Also, you can add on jewels along the temples for extra sparkle! Similarly, with the collarbones, you can highlight them with the Glitter Powder too.
To finish off the look, apply a cream lipstick on your lips because liquid lipstick does not hold the glitter well. Then, press the Glitter Powder onto your lips with your fingers for a sparkly lip look. Also, you can brush some excess glitter on the brush onto your hair for more sparkle fun! You will definitely be the centre of attention in the festival with this sparkly look! Want to know where to get all these products? Check them out in Mica Beauty Australia Official Website!
