Here are few tips on your Halloween glitter usage usage to avoid looking like you someone smacked you in the face with the glitter pie. You will need a Jane Iredale Lid Primer (Lemon, Canvas or my favorite for this look -> Petal) & a 24K Gold Dust color to match your dancing queen threads (Silver, Gold, Bronze, Champagne or Rose Gold) & a black jelly jar & liner brush of your choice.
Start with your eyes. If you apply your foundation and then eyes you will shine bright like a diamond all night, but not in a good way. A shiny face will make you look like a ghost in all of your pictures. Some things you can't filter for #insta & a white face on a spray tan body is one of them. You want your eyes to pop, not your FACE. Dust away glitter debris BEFORE applying your final step of foundation.
This inspiration is 70's or a glam rocker girl, or guy (my favorite kind of guy, other than my man OBV:)).
Avoid going past your crease with the sparkle or your glitter look will crease and look like a broken disco ball and be a disco eye fail:(
Sanitize your hands & use your finger to apply the lid primer first. Apply primer from the lid line to the brow. Follow with your 24K dust color but remember... ONLY to the crease to avoid a (2am, 3 drinks in) crease in your makeup.
Less is NOT more for Halloween eyes... MORE is MORE. Don't be skkeeereeed... it's makeup, SKIN CARE MAKEUP & not finger nail polish. You can wipe it off and start over. GO BIG OR GO HOME, in this case GO BIG or STAY HOME.
Think big hair, hoop earrings and disco balls when you line the rims, water lines and lash lines with the black jelly jar & your eyeliner brush.
Keep your lip neutral to draw more attention to the eyes.
Everyone knows how much I love Jane but here are some of the reasons why I recommend these three products for long wear looks:
Other cream liners do not compare. Coco-Caprylate/Caprate, Cyclopentasiloxane and Trimethylsiloxysilicate (BIG WORDS I KNOW but it is great to learn something new everyday) make the liner glide easily and water resistant. You want your makeup to stay on all night with your costume right? All black Panda eyes will be another tutorial...
24-K Dust are all wheat-free & all but Rose Gold are vegan for all of my #DesignerHippie friends.
Iredale primers not only help with maintaining the color of your shadow, or in this case, glitter/shimmer, they highlight the brow bone & prevent shadows from creasing and moving. Here goes dorky me -> Hydrated Silica is the active ingredient that holds seven times its molecular weight in moisture & absorbs excess oil.
Along with all other Jane Iredale products, they are certified by PETA to be cruelty-free.
Dont resort to cheap makeup for Halloween, use what you already have with Jane Iredale, your skin will thank you next week:)
