Even days after shooting this look I’m still finding bits of glitter everywhere! It’s like sand, others who’ve used glitter in looks will understand my pain. Still, I’ve been wanting to do something like this look for the longest time, I think it could have used a bit more work (fix the hair, more glitter on the jawline), but it isn’t too bad for a first try. I wanted to illustrate the idea of diamond trickling down the side of my face.
I made the silver ball myself, one of my props 🙂 Unfortunately the glue I used ate away at the gems so it isn’t as shiny as I had originally hoped 🙁 It started as a foam ball which I covered in foil and then glued about 4 packs worth of gems on :/ Tres expensive, but totally worth it for Book of Fables 🙂 Enjoy!

Prime, apply foundation, concealer and powder to set. It’s always important to contour the face before you apply any additional detail, to get a solid base. So start by applying bronzer to the temples, hollows of the cheeks and jawline. Apply blush to your cheek bones, then take a highlighter to the high points of your face.
Prime your lids and apply a white eyeliner to the inner corner of your eyes and brown bone. Then apply a light tanned eye shadow powder all over the lid up to the brow bone, take a medium taupe and apply to your crease. Finally take a dark silver shade and apply to the outer corner of your eyes, then take a shimmery white powder to the inner corner of your eyes and brow bone (over the areas you applied the white eyeliner).
Line your upper lash line with a black liquid liner, then your waterline with a black eyeliner pencil. Curl your lashes and apply mascara to your top and bottom lashes.
The fun part! Any areas you want the place silver glitter that is not your eye area, spray Fix+ then dab on the silver glitter. For the eye area, take a glitter gel made for eyes and apply, then dab the silver glitter over it. Take some iridescent glitter and place it over the silver on any of your high points. Dab small amounts of eye lash glue then place the gems over.
Line and fill in your lips with a lip pencil, then coat your lips with a mauve rose lip colour. Then apply a shimmery beige lip colour to the center of your lips.
