As if by magic, with more velocity than ever before, glitter seems to be taking over the faces, heads and bodies of the world. Everywhere I turn, there are more sparkles, more shimmering glimmer. The result overall is a more magical world in my opinion.
It is my sincerest hope that this beauty trend lives on through 2014, and so I’ve mastered a way to make my face even more magical.
The holiday season, sadly, is over, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t still glitter’s time to shine. I might have packed away my collection of itchy glitter sweaters, snow globes, and sparkly ice cream ornaments, but that doesn’t mean I have to suffer through the rest of the year without sparkles stuck all over my body. Hair, face, nails, toenails; no skin will be left behind.
I couldn't decide how I wanted to implement my glitter brow look. Should I glue blocks of glitter fabric or paper onto my face a la Chanel F/W 2012? That didn't seem like the most wearable or comfortable option, though I may still try it In the future because jewel-encrusted eyebrows are obviously something I enjoy.
With a bit of experimentation and some trusty products, I came up with two versions of a glitter brow to try. The results are wearable, easy-to-execute looks. Just please don't get glitter in your eye. Please.
Using my very favourite Heavy Metal Glitter liquid liner by Urban Decay in Midnight Cowboy, I gave my eyebrows a nice subtle golden sparkle.
Simply take the little liquid liner brush and apply the sparkles to your brows until satisfied. This route is super-easy and the result is, like, ugh, so pretty.
For a more dramatic look, I turned to my Sephora Glittering Eye Duo in Iridescent.
I thoroughly coated my brows with the provided sticky primer, making sure to brush some in against the hairs to make the foundation nice and solid. Then I coated the same brush with the attached glitter and stuck it all over my brows.
Hypothetically something similar could be done with a glue stick and carefully placed dollar-store glitter if you wanted to get all fancy budget craft project on your face.
Let me know (and show me) if you try this!
