NYE Duochrome Glitter Makeup

new years eve glitter makeup mufe holodiam powder 302 mac steamy
Hello, lovelies! I hope you're enjoying your 2014 so far. I have a glittery makeup look for you today. Yeah, glitter!! Nighttime events like clubbing or New Year's Eye are perfect to break out my loose glitters. The star of today's look is the Make Up For Ever Holodiam Powder in 302. The Holodiam Powders are limited edition (sorry!) finely milled duochrome glitters that came out around November 2012. I've featured them on my blog twice (in a review and a TIOT) before. I hope MUFE brings them back sometime because they are a-m-a-z-i-n-g.

A little more info on the Make Up Forever Holodiam Powders for those who may have missed them (since they were limited edition and sold out rather quickly): The powders are extremely finely milled. You don't even need a sticky base or glitter adhesive to get them to stay on. They are labeled as duochromes but I would call them triochromes. This particular shade, 302, shifts to blue, brown, and plum depending on the way the light hits it. It also transforms depending on what color you use underneath (see my original review for swatches over different bases).

Sorry but I had to talk about 302 a little because I'm obsessed with it. I wish I could find occasions to wear it more often. Last time I wore it was during Halloween 2013 (only a few months ago). Anyhow, I used Inglot's 338 Eyeshadow on the lid, MAC's Steamy on the inner corners, and a matte brown on the crease. For my liquid liner I used the Bourjois Liner Pinceau*. On my waterline I applied Rimmel's ScandalEyes Kohl Liner in Nude. On my lashes I used Mary Kay's Lash Love Mascara*

What makeup did you wear during New Year's Eve? 
* I received the Liner Pinceau as a gift during a swap. The Lash Love Mascara was sent to me for a sponsored post I did back in 2013.

  6. This loook is so pretty. I don't think I could bull of a blue color with my skin tone..or maybe I just can't find that perfect blue. I've been looking for a more affordable eyeliner that I can find at the drugstore. I want to have more options. Have you tried Lancome's Artliner? It's so amazing, I always buy it. But sometimes the $30 adds up or seems too much to pay when you're a college student and broke -_-

    1. I've never tried the Artliner but I do know it's a cult favorite. I'm very happy with the Bourjois Liner Pinceau though. And it's quite affordable. I think anyone can wear any color but the tricky thing is finding the right undertone. It takes some trial and error xx

  7. Very pretty! That MUFE eyeshadow is gooorgeous, why do they have to make it LE *sigh*
    I wore a black smokey eye with holo glitter eyeliner on top and with a soft peach blush and nude lips. I had been wanting to do that look for a while but never found the right occasion haha

  21. I can never wear glitter makeup. It always gets in my eye and I'm bothered by it all day long. I love the look you created here, though. It's super pretty.

  26. *dies* I think a part of you secretly knew I would die if I saw this. GLITTER. I LOVED those Holodiam Powders and I was so angry they didn't bring out more this year! I have the 303 one and returned 302 (like an idiot) I use mine for only the specialist of occasions! Gorgeous, and stunning look, Coco! Absolutely took my breath away!
