I don’t think it’s a secret that I think Blix from Glitter is My Crack is super-duper awesome, so I was really excited when the Never Too Much Sparkle challenge was to do a version of one of her looks. I fannied about for a while choosing which one to do, because she has a lot more lid space than me and often uses a lot more colours than I would. I finally settled on this glitter look, reasoning I couldn’t balls it up too much!
Sorry about the ol’ pizza face there. Spots being spotty :(
Eyes: Sleek black, cream and brown from Bohemian palette (lid, crease and brow bone respectively), Fyrinnae Moon Child (inner corner), a mix of Hi-Fi Paparazzi Flash Powder in Vengeance and Darling Girl glitter in Jingle Bells.
Lips: Covergirl Lip Perfection in Flame
Face: MAC Cream Colour Base in Move Star Red, Evil Shades Burlesque.
I don’t think I did too bad! I should have brought the black further past the crease, and Blix didn’t blend hers out with a brown, but the black from this palette is really hard to blend and it was stop or ruin the whole thing. The glitter isn’t as vibrant either, but does look better in real life – you can’t really tell, but Vengeance has a royal blue in there as well, which is so pretty! I like the placement of glitter more in the centre of the lid – I’d be inclined to put it on the outer third of the lid normally. Thought I’d stick a picture of me with me ol’ glasses on as I always wear them, but never show them on my blog.
My awesome necklace (if you don’t think it’s awesome, we need to have words) was custom made and is from Velvet Volcano.
