GLITTER BEAUTY TRENDS: RUNWAY TO REAL LIFE

posted by Elshane on Feb 26 2015, under Beauty

There's something about New York Fashion Week beauty trends that always have me at hello.

This February on the New York runways, Rodarte adorned the bottom lids with a row of tiny Swarovski sparkles affixed by silver string. Ohne Titel took purple caviar microbeads (yes, the same beads we used to dip our gel nails into) to the next level by gluing them to the lower lids.

What I'm trying to say? If you don't have glue or dollhouse-sized tweezers handy in your makeup kit-- my solution is pretty.darn.perfect.

Introducing... my five minute Urban Decay fashion week eye. And no, this isn't a sponsored posts... I just live for this brand!

1. Start with the pinkish hue in the Naked On The Run palette (the one I describe in detail in this post). It's a good base eyeshadow color for all skintones. Natural yet noticeable.

2. Line the bottom lid with the Heavy Metal Liner.

3. Prime your lashes with the fabulously fun to apply white primer.

4. Top your lashes with Perversion, aka, Perfect Lashes.

5. Hit the town and have fun ;) <--- day or night, I actually prefer this look for daytime though.

SHADOW STYLE

Calling all blue and green eyed gals!!!

I know colored eyeshadow was last seen in the garbage can of your bathroom circa '98, but I have a fresh spin on a color so bold yet neutral, that it will have you jumping out of bed in the morning to put your makeup on!

Pink eyeshadow is the new black jean. It sort of just goes with everything. Think of it as a neutral--notice this YSL palette that I'm currently crushing, how the pink colorway that I used in the bottom left corner is surrounded by its neutral partners.

It's particularly strong for blue and green eyes because it brightens and lightens the pigment in your eyes, turning your green or blue beauties into light crystal balls. It's pretty incredible to witness. 

For a day at the office, I slab on the pink shadow with some light mascara and call it a day. It makes my baby greens pop off my face and speaks to the whole "no makeup, makeup" look perfectly.

At night, I add a strong cat eye line like shown above to give my lids some extra drama. Another option for night is to line your crease with the deep purple in the center of the palette.

I love this YSL palette because the colors surrounding the pink on the bottom left are incredible choices for highlighting and shading for your evening look. 

Now go give your eyes a high drama update and try this eyeshadow trend today!
