Steps to Achieve This Easy Evening Makeup Look
Step 1: Light Eye Shadow
Apply the lighter eye shadow shade to the inner corners of your eyes. Continue across your lid underneath the crease.
Step 2: More Eyeshadow
Go over the crease and outer corner using the other eye shadow shimmer.
Step 3 - Liquid Liner
Using a liquid eye liner, gently line the upper lash line.
Step 4 - Lipstick
Apply berry or plum lipstick. Deep reds and purples will also work. To make the colour look really intense, dab the lipstick when applying.
Step 5 - Setting Powder
Apply matte setting powder with a wide, loose brush.
Step 6: Optional – Accessorise
Finish the look off with a sparkling hair accessory
Removing Shimmer or Glitter Eye Shadows
While eye shadow with shimmer or glitter looks amazing, it sometimes may be hard to come off. Using a cotton pad and eye makeup remover, gently cleanse your eyes. Repeat a few times, if necessary. Afterwards, wash your face with a facial cleanser and follow with toner and moisturiser.
