I know that most of you will step it up at holiday parties this year by rocking a red lip! But today I’m tempting you to take it a step further and pair it with a simple sparkle eye. Nothing Vegas Showgirl or anything distracting. Just one glitter liquid liner and four ways to rock it. Here’s how:

TOOLS:

TBDGlitter1InnerTwinkle

INNER TWINKLE

  1. Look up and start in the inner corner. Trace the liquid liner about 1/3 of the distance across the lower lash line. You can decide how thick or thin you want it. I always end up making it a tad too thick but always notice right away and in time to swipe away the unwanted width with a q-tip (or my finger) before it dries.
  2. Follow with a couple coats of mascara.

THE GOLD LINE

  1. One of my very special clients did this on her own for her baby shower this year and everyone loved it! Simply start at the inner corner of your upper lashline and trace the liner across to the outer corner.
  2. Go back over it to add another coat of glitter. If that’s enough for you, stop there, or you can do a third coat on top to add even more glitter, which is what I did on Neelo here.
  3. Finish with a couple coats of mascara.

TBDGlitter3LidSparkle

LID SPARKLE

  1. Here you are just adding lines above the gold line that you drew in The Gold Line until you’ve filled in the entire lid. Stop before the crease so it doesn’t crease.
  2. Go back over the lid a couple more times until you’ve reached the amount of desired glitter.
  3. Finish with a couple coats of mascara.

TBDGlitter4Ombre2

OMBRE

  1. This time, do the steps from The Gold Line, but instead of filling in the entire lid like we did in Lid Sparkle, this time only draw the Gold Line.
  2. Before it dries, aka immediately, place your finger over the line and gently smear the glitter upward.
  3. Pick your finger up and press it repeatedly all over your lid.
  4. With the remaining few specks of glitter left on your finger, press it along the crease.
  5. Go back and draw a line at the upper lash line again to make sure that’s the most intense area.
