Let’s dip into our favourite makeup products from our makeup kit and pick out the best purple hues, shall we? This glitter eye makeup look is one that reigns in glitter and cut-crease, using shades that are quite off-beat, yet extremely pretty.

 

How to create the look

 

Step 1  - Eyeshadow

 

You want to opt for an eyeshadow palette that holds shimmery shades of purple, blue, and silver. Pro tip: Add a little surgical tape at the outer corners of your eyes to help you create that dramatic wing. Apply a deeper purple eyeshadow to your entire lid and blend it with a lighter purple hue towards the wing. Top it off with some white shimmery or silver glittery eye sparkle and your eyeshadow is ready to party!

Step 2 - Eyeliner

 

While your eyeshadow wing is rather dramatic, you might want to keep your eyeliner wing a little at bay. Go for a precise outline, that doesn't steal the spotlight from your eyeshadow.

If you’re talking about glitter, how can you not go for a classic silver. This glitter eye makeup look is one for the books –– mainly because it is super popular and truly loved. Scroll down to see how you can achieve this look too!

 

How to create the look

 

Step 1 - Eyeshadow

 

Think black, silver, and nude for this! Apply a matte black eyeshadow on the outer corners of your eyes. Make sure it’s blended in well enough, so that it creates a gorgeous wing. Using a silver eyeshadow, start at the inner corners of your eyes and sweep it all the way to where the black eyeshadow ends –– blend away! Taking a nude (or nude pink) eyeshadow, add a touch of the hue to your brow bone and a little to your crease and blend.
