Electric Pink Glitter-Lips with Brown Eyes

This is a fun look that’s flattering and dramatic. As with all glitter-lip looks, it is not going to be a good idea to eat a whole lot while you’re wearing it.

Recommended for clubbing and cocktail parties where you’ll mostly just be drinking through straws.

Step 1: Apply a soft warm brown (I used MAC Sable) to the entire lid area, and then blend the color gently along the hollow of the socket line, pulling up slightly in a wing once you reach the other corners.

Step 2: Using a brown gel liner, draw on a flick at the outer corners following the angle of the lower lash line.

Step 3: Thicken the flick from the outer tip inwards, and then connect all along the upper lash line. Don’t try to draw it all in a single stroke. Do short strokes and just connect and smooth it out.

Step 4: Finish the eye look by curling your lashes and then applying a strip of wispy false lashes. If you don’t want to apply falsies, just curl your lashes and apply black mascara!

P.S. Have I said before that I love the shape of the Ardell 120 Demis and Demi Wispies? The weave is irregular so they look more natural, and the shape is slightly longer and flared at the outer ends, so they give you a slight cat-like effect while being lush and girly at the same time.

Step 5: I applied a rich fuchsia to the lips (Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Fuchsia), blotted, and then reapply. This gets a good stain on your lips so the color will be very saturated.

Step 6: With your finger or a flat synthetic brush, gently press a translucent duochrome blue glitter to the surface of the lips. Try any fine-grained glitter that reflects blue, such as MAC Reflects Blue pigment or Reflects Very Pink. 

On the cheeks, just keep it soft with a light pink. You’ve already got a dramatic lip going, so you don’t want to have your cheeks be too bright at the same time.


#ColorBurst: FILED Back- To-School Blast 2013

I was browsing through my emails and I was happy to see that I got an email from Filed! They invited me for their first ever event with their ambassadors together with some bloggers. I was lucky enough to be one of those bloggers chosen to go to this awesome event last May 24.

It was a great feeling to attend to an event like this since this was Filed’s first gathering. I was also joined by my co-bloggers and friends IanRaniel, and Gian who were also invited. The event was held at Saint’s Alp Teahouse in Katipunan which, I must say, is a cool tea house to relax, read, or hangout place for you and your their drinks are good.
