Do you already have any plans for Valentines day? No matter if you go out or just stay home, if you have a partner or you’re just by yourself – it’s a perfect day to have some fun with makeup.
I created a smokey eye with a fun glitter liner with some typical valentines day colors. It’s actually pretty simple so if you want to know how to do it here we go:
Products I used for this makeup:
- Eyeshadow base (PLouise base)
- Sigma warm neutrals volume 2 eyeshadow palette (Humble, Charmer, Rogue, Russet)
- La Splash art-ki-tekt slim eyeliner waterproof
- OPVBEAUTY metal and liquid glitter in Dime
- Essence I Love Extreme Volume Mascara Waterproof
- Brushes: Zoeva 227, Morphe MB13, Makeup Geek small crease brush
Step By Step Makeup Pictorial:
First I prime my eyelids with an eyeprimer/concealer (PLouise Base). I recently startet not always setting my eyeprimer/concealer anymore because eyeshadows show up a lot more pigmented this way.
Next I use the shade ‘Russet’ to pack it on my eyelid with a dense blending brush (Zoeva 227).
After that I use the shade ‘Rogue’ to blend out the previous shade in the crease and a little bit higher with a blending brush (Morphe MB13). To help blending I use the shade ‘humble’ on my browbone.
Then I draw an eyeliner and wing it out with the La Splash art-ki-tekt eyeliner. You can also skip this step but I think it helps to have it as a guideline for the glitter eyeliner in the next step.
After that I draw an eyeliner and also wing it out above the black eyeliner with the OPV Beauty glitter liner.
The brush tip of the glitter liner is not that percise so the black eyeliner got covered. To perfect that I go over the black eyeliner again with the La Splash liner.
Then I clean up any fall out and excess eyeshadow on my lower lashline/ cheek. After that I do my base makeup. Then I use the shade ‘Russet’ on a dense blending brush (Zoeva 227) and apply it close to my lashline on the lower lashline.
To blend out the previous shade I use the shade ‘Rogue’ on a blending brush (Morphe MB13).
Then I highlight my inner corner and browbone with the shade ‘Charmer’ on a pencil brush (Makeup Geek small crease brush).
Lastly I fill in my eyebrows, curl my lashes and apply mascara.
I hope you enjoyed this step-by-step makeup pictorial on how to do this smokey eyelook with glitter which is perfect for valentines day!
