Hello my beauties. Happy Friday :) Couple of weeks ago, I stayed up all night to watch Super Bowl and despite being a complete zombie at work the next day, I'm so grateful I managed to stay up & see Lady Gaga's take on Red Glitter Eye. I was amazed at how beautiful it looked and how surprisingly wearable :) I knew from the moment I saw her, I will have to try and recreate this look for you :) I ordered some red glitter from Ebay and voila :) I hope you like my take on Gaga's already a cult look <3 if You like to know how I created this look ---> here it goes :)
As a base I used my Ebay Flash Palette and the beautiful true red colour. I applied it first with my finger just dabbing it on and for definition I used flat syntethic brush. I rarely use this palette but it does deserve a huge shout out as for less than £9.00 you get 12 super pigmented cream shades. I have sensitive eyes and this doesn't affect me so I can vouch for it :)
After creating a defined base, I then cleaned the brush and set it with the red shade from my amazing Eat Sleep Makeup Repeat from Makeup Revolution. Again this is only drugstore and costs only £6.00, but if you're into pro session makeup looks - it's definitely the one to have. Super pigmented colours that last :) I packed a lot of colour on top of my cream base to ensure I set it properly and makeup will last all day :)
Time for glitter. I'm not a huge glitter fan. It's messy and I haven't been smart enough to get a glue with purchase so had to improvise. I mixed my glitter (from Ebay- 99p) with a bit of Ingot's Duraline on the same brush again and again just packed it all over my defined 'cat eye'. I was surprised of how well it worked with Duraline and my job was done in less than 2 minutes :) There was a bit of fall out but I cleaned it up with a makeup remover wipe :)
For the bottom lid I just used a little of neutral tone chocolate matte shade and blended it out. It completed the look and made it more wearable, whilst defining lower lash line nicely.
Look like this deserves big lashes. I started with one coat of Max Factor Velvet Volume and added some Magnifibers on top. I followed with second coat and decided to add some falsies. I'm not a huge falsies fan and wanted just a tad of length so I decided on Tanya Burr's Everyday Flutter Lashes. these are just "half" lashes and it worked great, adding a bit of flirtatious volume and length.
I hope you like the finished look. Surprisingly to myself I love it and I can see myself wearing it on a girls night out :) My eyes feel a little heavy, what's with huge amount cream, powder and glitter on top but it's mainly because I'm so not used to wearing falsies ;)
