MOTD - Double Turquoise Glitter Liner





So i've been a little obsessed with glitter make up looks lately so i've been going a little glitter shopping crazy because I just want every shade you know? I purchased some new ones from an online boutique shop (loveandgraceboutique on Instagram) and I'm absolutely luuuuurving them. They stock some stunning colours and as soon as they arrived I was dying to try out the turquoise shade so I decided to create this double liner look using the glitter and I seriously just wanted to keep this look on permanently.

For my eyebrows I used my Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow in the shade Medium Brown and this is my go-to eyebrow product, I'm almost out of this but it has lasted me well over a year so it's definitely worth the money! If you haven't yet tried this product I strooooongly recommend it. I used the dip brow on the arch of my brow and the centre but I then take my Benefit Precisely My Brow in Shade Five to lightly stroke in the front of the brow upwards.

I next used my MAC Pro Longer Concealer to carve my brows out and then used this as my base all over my lid to prep for eyeshadow. I always set my base using my RCMA No Colour Powder.

For this look I used my Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette because this has all the neutral shades I used on a daily basis. The only thing I did for my lids was put Burnt Orange through my crease to add some depth, If I'm not wearing much eyeshadow I always like to run a neutral, warm shade through my crease. I then took Vermeer to highlight my brow bone and my inner corner. I used the same Burnt Orange shade on a fluffy brush on my lower lash line but I then used Cyprus Umber on a more precise brush to blend close to the lower lash line to smoke it out a little more. I finished by using a brown pencil liner in my water line.

For the eyeliner I started by doing a black winged liner using my Zoeva Wing Liner Brush and my Maybelline Gel Liner but I then used my Stila Stay All Day Eyeliner to make it more black as I had purchased the wrong shade in my gel liner. I also find it easier to use the pen liner on the inner part of my lid. Once I had my black wing done I took the NYX Glam Liner in Nude to do a second wing on top as I wanted a guide on wear to put the glitter. I then took my NYX glitter glue on my Zoeva Fine Liner Brush and placed the glue along the second liner I had created, I found this brush was so good for this as it was so fine so it was very easy to be precise with the glue placement. I next took the Turquoise Glitter on the same brush and placed it on the top of the glue. I built it up until I was happy with how the glitter looked. I went over my black liner again with the Stila Liner covering up any glitter that had fallen and I just spent a little bit of time going back and forth to clean it up. I finished by taking my Glitter Liner by Kiko and just went over the glitter with this to ensure it all dried down to make sure the glitter stayed in place. I absolutely loved this shade of glitter and I already cant wait to use it again!

I finished the eyes by using my Maybelline Lash Sensation Mascara on my top and bottom lashes and then added my Huda Beauty Farah Lashes. These lashes are my new fave (again) - I always have a new fave pair of lashes but these ones are so full and wispy and the perfect length that I love.

Moving onto face I first moisturised using my Origins Ginzing Moisturiser which is my every day moisturiser, I love the formula of this as it is like a water/gel consistency which I love for my skin as I have dry skin so I find this product super hydrated and the perfect prep for make up.

For primer I used my all time favourite primer the Too Faced Hangover Primer. I very rarely find myself using any other primer now as this is an absolute staple for me. When I find a product that works for me I stick to them especially with base products as I know they won't let me down. This primer is super hydrating and because I have dry skin I think this is why I love it so much. Whenever I apply this primer my foundation goes on so smoothly and blends out perfectly.

The foundation I used is my Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation. This is my all time favourite drugstore foundation that I've tried to date. I sometimes like a light foundation on my skin but this product still gives me a good amount of coverage and I love the satin finish of this for my skin type. My favourite way to apply any foundation is to use a rounded, kabuki brush (Real Techniques Buffing Brush) to blend out the foundation evenly on my face and neck and then I will use a damp beauty blender and dab this over my foundation to pick up any excess product and ensure the base is completely smooth.

For concealer I used my two holy grail concealers; Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer and NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. I love both of these concealers separately but together is the perfect combination for me. With the maybelline one I love how hydrating the formula is and that it always blends out so effortlessly whilst brightening as well. The NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer gives such a nice coverage and I have the shade Vanilla and it is super good at brightening.

Once I had my base on I used my Iconic London Illuminating Drops in the shade Shine. I literally only just purchased these a couple of weeks ago and I haven't stopped using them since. They are SO intense which I love because I do love a strong highlight! I apply these with my finger and my Beauty Blender on the tops of my cheeks, down my nose and above my eyebrows and honestly you really do only need the tiniest bit as a little goes a long way with this product.

I then set my under eye area with my RCMA No Colour Powder and I set the rest of my base with my MAC mineralise skin finish powder in Medium and I just hit pan on this! This is my all time favourite setting powder, its so light but still sets your base so well and doesn't appear cakey on my dry skin.

For bronzer I used my trusty Benefit Hoola Bronzer which gives me the perfect amount of bronzer and always blends out easily. For highlighter I used my new Kylie Cosmetics Kylighter in the shade French Vanilla and I really like this product however I did use it on top of my Iconic London drops so they play a massive part in how intense the highlighter is but from swatches of the kylighter it looks gorgeous.

Finally for lipstick I used one of the new Nude Liquid Lipsticks from Kylie Cosmetics holiday collection and I used the shade Birthday Suit and this shade did not let me down and the formula for me again was perfect and super long lasting.
