My Go-To Glam Makeup

Here's how I do my go-to, pink-toned, glam eyeshadow look.

I start off by priming my eyelids and blending a base color all over the lid. This step ensures that I have a nice blending surface. For my base shade, I use Bonefrom the Kat Von D MetalMatte palette. If you have a darker skin tone, you might want to use a darker shade such as Suede! Any neutral shade a little lighter than your skin tone will work. I use the Real Techniques base shadow brush for this. A big, not too fluffy brush is good for doing this first step.

Next I take Fringe, a soft pink color from the same palette, on the base shadow brush and put it all over my lid, just above the crease. The color you use doesnt really matter, as long as its pink and not too dark. Going straight in with a dark color will make it harder to blend everything nicely. I blend this out with the Real Techniques deluxe crease brush. Just use any fluffy, crease, or blending brush you have.

To make everything more pink, I build up the color with the deluxe crease brush. After that, I take a very pigmented pink shade from the NYX Brightsultimate palette. I apply this in the crease and blend it out.

To give the look more dimension, I add a warm brown shade in the outer corner and crease, once again using a crease brush. I used a mix of Oakfrom the Kat Von D palette and Boxedfrom the Sleek Oh So Special palette. Build the color up by applying small amounts and blending it out as much as you can.

Time for glitter! I use the Real Techniques accent brush to put Gateaufrom the Sleek palette on the inner half of my eye, up to the crease. After that, I also apply some extra loose gold glitters. Gold and pink glitters will look very good with this look, but silver glitters will work as well.

Using a small fluffy brush and Glitzfrom the Kat Von D palette, I highlight my brow bone and inner corner. Use any highlighting shade you have; I suggest you use a gold or pink one, so it really matches the look. After that, I curl my lashes and put mascara on them. If you want to, you can put some white liner on the waterline to make you eyes appear bigger.

You could stop after mascara, but when Im doing glam makeup I like to wear falsies. Im wearing the Ardell Wispies, which are my favorites. If you have never applied false lashes before, watch some YouTube videos about it! They can really help you out.

For lipstick, I chose the NYX Lip Lingerie in Beauty Mark. I love dark nudes with this type of look! Dark reds or pink-toned nudes will look amazing with this look. Make sure you highlight your face as well. And thats it, ready to blind everyone with your bright makeup?
