What is really cool about these graded round glitter particles is that they are safe to use on the face, body, and even in your hair! I decided to create a shimmery eye look and am really pleased with how it turned out. I think adding glitters is such a fun way to glam up any makeup look, and of course the holiday season is a great time to turn to glitter for some added sparkle.
Gun Metal is a holographic mix of grey, silver and blue glitter particles that vary in intensity depending on the light angle. When working with loose glitters, I've learned that it's best to do your eye makeup before moving on to the rest of your face makeup as they can get a little messy. Placing a tissue under your eyes will also help to catch any fallout during application. I sprayed my brush with setting spray to pick up the glitter with ease and to give it a long-lasting effect on my eyelids. I used a greyish-blue shadow as a base which I thought would complement the glitter nicely, and I really liked the end result!
As you can see above, I did get some fallout but I was able to easily remove it with water before applying the rest of my face makeup. I can't wait to use this product again in a few weeks on Christmas and New Year's Eve!
The Make Up For Ever Midnight Glow Gun Metal Glitter (C$20.00) and the rest of the Midnight Glow Holiday Collection is available on Sephora.ca and at Make Up For Ever boutiques.
