Bonfire Night is right around the corner, and if you’ve been searching for a sparkly look to match the glitz and bang of the occasion, we may have just what you’re after. Heather Moorhouse (aka @makeupmouse) came by and helped us create this gorgeous blue and gold eye makeup look that we’re obsessing over. With just the right amount of glitter and razzmatazz, it’ll make ’em go oh, oh, oh – cuz, baby, you’re a firework!
Lay a base
If you want to help the pigment in your shadow pack a punch, a great trick is to use a creamy product (like an eyeliner or lip liner) in the same colour as the base. This will help the shadow stick and intensify the colour. Apply Revolution Pro Supreme Pigment Gel Liner in Gold all over your lid, blending it out with an eyeshadow brush or your finger. Next, apply Revolution Pro Supreme Pigment Gel Eyeliner in Blue to your lower lash line and use a brush to blend it out.
Set with shadows
Any cream product needs to be set with a powder, which is where eyeshadow comes in. Use the gold highlight shade from the Revolution X Carmi Kiss of Fire Palette on your lid and the teal shade from the same palette on your lower lash line. Pack on and blend out for a flawlessly bold look. To brighten your eyes, hit the inner corners with the silvery highlight shade.
Use your finger to apply Revolution Glitter Bomb in Bling Thing to the outer corners of your eyelid and sweep Bleach London Glitterati in Washed Up Mermaid 001 on top of the blue shadow under your eyes.
Lift with lashes
With all that colour and glitter going on, you need to give your lashes a lift with falsies and mascara. We applied Collection Lash Surge Mascara in Black, then topped off our look with Superdrug False Lashes in Natural Edition 14.
