Glitter on Glitter Makeup Look

Ever since I went to IMATS with the lovely Andrea and Jessica (well, more like met up with) I made a commitment to start using glitter in my makeup more often. I've always thought it was beautiful but since I picked up some glitters from Lit Cosmetics at IMATS I was determined not to let them sit in my drawers unused. I'm very glad to inform you that I've been very successful! I've worn glitter about 4-5 different times in the past 2 months. That's a lot considering I used to wear it only once or twice a year and it was usually during Halloween!

For this makeup look I went for pale gold cut crease glitter. The reason this post is titled "glitter on glitter" is that I layered two different types of glitters. First I applied the Wet'n'Wild Glitter Color Icon Single in Brass. It was my first time using that product and it didn't set like I expected it to. It creased in about 20 mins. Thankfully I hadn't left the house, so I applied Lit Cosmetics Champagne Wishes on top in order to "soak up" the oiliness and disguise the creasing. 

Despite the initial shortcomings, I loved the look. It was quite subtle, for a glitter look, mostly thanks to the muted pink lips/cheeks.

  1. I hardly ever apply eyeshadow, let alone glitter, but the next time I do I will definitely give it a go as it looks really pretty. Love it! Btw I think a soft green colour would look amazing against your skin complexion X

  4. This looks gorgeous - wish I could wear glitter on my eyes more often as it's such a dramatic look but they're just too sensitive. Laura xx

  6. I seriously need to start wearing glitter more often! For some reason, it only ever suits me at night time, during the day I look like a disco ball. Haha. This look's super cute!

  8. Glitter makes the world go round <3
    But dang it, I had a look very similar to this (with Champagne Wishes, seriously that color is gorgeous) to go up next week! Oh well, great minds think alike! I'm so tempted to order more off their site but saving for Black Friday because I heard they do BOGO. Not related to this post, but thought you should know ;)

  13. Love this look! I really struggle to do a 'cut crease' look, I think I just have the wrong eye shape for it :-(

  18. Oh I really do need to buckle down and pick up some of these NYX single shadows. They look fantastic! Milani also has some nice solo shadows out on the market now. Basically, the drugstore is calling my name. Glitter/Shimmer is something I'm always a bit weary of. Totally love how you just WENT for it! Go girl!
