All that glitters…



… doesn’t have to be gold. But it sure makes the look more festive! The golden tones are perfect for the summers many parties. A summer wedding would make for a great occasion to whip out the glitter. When working with glittery shadows there are many ways you can go, and the choice really depends on the desired result. For a more shimmery, not so chunky look you could go for the cream shadow. One example is the MAC paint pots, Bare Study being an excellent choice. For a more affordable choice, Maybelline’s colour tattoo in On and on Bronze is one of their many shimmery shades with a good quality – as long as you pop on a primer first, you cannot go wrong with Urban Decay’s primer potion.

For a more glittery look, the pressed shadows are a good choice. Here you have a large selection to choose from, all the way from drugstore to high end. The Naked Palette from Urban Decay offers many shimmery/glittery colours, or you could go for the single shadows. Pictured we have MUAs shade 11 Pearl, and 02 Golden Sand from IsaDora.

If you’re pulling out the big guns and really wanting that chunky glitter, then a loose pigment shadow is your best choice. You can really pack the shadow on the lid, and when wetting your brush you can really intensify the look. A golden oldie is MACs loose pigments in Vanilla or Old Gold. A more affordable choice is Da Vinci Cosmetics mineral shimmer shadow Champagne, pictured on the lid below, with Snakebite form the Naked2 palette in the crease.
All that glitters isn’t necessarily gold, but it sure does look good.
