Happy 2018! Throw some sparkles around for the New Year! Who doesn’t love a little bit of glitter? Now that the New Year celebration is kind of over, and everyone is returning to their regular routine. But here’s your chance to bring that little shimmer with you everywhere subtly, without going overboard for a day to day basis.
Gold Glitter Eye Makeup Look
We will start with our cleaned and moisturised skin. Apply primer onto your eyelids and give it a few minutes to settle into the skin. The primer helps to hold your eye shadow to last longer and helps to intensify the eye shadow’s colour.
Then, let’s begin with a light shimmer colour as the base colour. Mica Beauty makeup artists recommend you in the colour 8_tease, which is a nice subtle gold shimmer colour. Pick up the product with a flat eye shadow brush and gently pat the product across your eye lid. The eye shadow is made from fine powder, which is gentle on the eyes and blends easily. The colours of the Mica Beauty’s Mineral Eye Shadow are opaque in just one swipe of the product. Concentrate the colour at the inner corner of the eye and extend it to the centre of the eye lid.
After applying the base colour, we can start with shading to create a shadow on the look for a fun look. A bronze gold colour will match well to achieve the gold shimmer makeup look. The colour in 27_striptease will be the perfect shimmer bronzing colour. Pick up the product by using a fluffy blending brush, starting from the centre of the eyelid and towards the outer corner of the eye lid. Continue to blend until you are satisfied with the outcome. Intensify your eye look with a darker colour like 39_nature, a dark brown with a hint of shimmer in it. Using the blending eye shadow brush, apply the eye shadow on the outer corners of your eyes to make your eyes pop.
If you desire more shimmer on your eye makeup look for a night look, pick up the light shimmer shade and concentrate and layer the colour on the centre of the eyelid until you are satisfied with the amount of shimmer on the eyes. An alternate step is to use glitter powder from Mica Beauty and apply it on to the eye lids for that extra effect. Furthermore, apply a thin eyeliner, and a few coats of mascara and you are ready with your new gold shimmer eye makeup look.
