It is often said that leave a little sparkle wherever you go. Glitter is one of my favorite when I want to add some oomph to my outfit. It’s never a dull moment when you have some glitter on. A good way to incorporate this trend is my sporting glitter makeup. A little bit of sparkle goes a long way and makes sure people give you a second glance. A lot of times sporting glittery makeup can be a little too intimidating and scary. Also, a lot of people do tend to go a bit overboard with it. The key to dramatic glitter eyes is moderation. So if you want perfect party eyes… then glitter is the way to go!
Here’s how you can wear glitter with ease and steal the show.
I created the glitter makeup look for the Godiva Festival. The Godiva Festival is a three-day free music festival which offers great music, entertainment, international food and drinks, children’s fun fair and more. It’s an all in one event which is celebrated in the city’s War Memorial Park. They have 5 stages, 4 tents and two fields filled with fun activities for everyone.
The festival outfit look has a very boho vibe to it. You generally see people sporting fringes, psychedelic prints, hats, boho jewelry.
Instead of going for the obvious flower crowns and chunky bracelets go for something unexpected and add some glitter makeup to your outfit. I’ve created a very versatile and comfortable festival look.
I paired a red summer dress with some lace detailing with my glitter eye makeup. I matched my makeup with the tiny glitter bag with all my essentials. The dress is quite simple. So, I jazzed it up with my makeup and accessories.
I wanted to keep my jewelry to a minimum because who wants to take care of it while you are having so much fun. So I wrapped my necklace as a bracelet for a funky style and used a neck tattoo instead of jewelry for a more fashionably comfortable look.
There are various ways in which you can pair your outfit with a glittery look. You can even sport a short dress or a long gown and add some color with a contrasting outfit. But when you are trying the glitter look to make sure you match it with your outfit. Avoid looking like a shiny disco ball by complementing it with some sober pieces in your look. Keep your outfit simple so that it can bring out the elegant look and make your makeup look charming. So don’t be afraid to sparkle a little, because she who leaves a trail of glitter is never forgotten.
I am currently obsessed with this glitter makeup look and am planning to create one more look soon. But this time I want to experiment with some colors so I am looking at shades of mauve. Are you excited about this look?
