Hey everyone! Today I’m doing a glittery party look using the Smashbox Covershot Matte Palette!
|Smashbox Covershot Matte Palette|
I start off by giving my face a quick spritz with Pixi Glow Mist then primed with Becca First Light Primer. I’d never used this primer before but I really liked it; it left my skin looking good! Next up is a product that I just can’t live without right now, Urban Decay’s De-Slick Primer. Pat it over your oily areas and it will save your skin, just be sure to pat not wipe! (It will ball up like parmesan cheese if you wipe. EW.)
For foundation I’m applying Too Faced Born This Way foundation with the Sigma 3DHD Sponge, this beauty blender is my favourite. Make sure you pat in the areas you applied your primer just in case.
Next, to prepare for the eyeshadow, I patted Ciaté Partner in Prime over my eyelid just using my fingertips. Then take the Covershot Matte Palette, and swipe the base colour lightly through your crease. Next, do a light halo on the outside and the inside of your lid with the mid-brown shade and blend it out. Take the deeper brown and blend it with the black and do the same halo, then soften it out again with a blending brush. It’s a good idea to use a tissue to catch the fallout at this step, although this palette has a pleasantly small amount of fallout. Take the highlight shade to clean up the blending if you need.
I used Urban Decay Moon Dust Shadows, putting a light one on the centre of my lid and blending it with my finger, and then patting a darker one over the top. Then I matted out the inner and outer corners with the deeper brown/black from the Smashbox Palette to maintain that halo effect. Don’t forget to match the shadow under your eye. Next, I used Maybelline’s Fit Me Concealer around my eyes to lighten and brighten around that area. I put a tiny amount of the light Moon Dust Shadow under my eyes as well.
I used Pixi Eye Define Waterline Pencil over my waterline and lash line, blending it in, then doing my lashes with Ciaté Wonderland Mascara. Like always, I pencilled my brows in lightly with the Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil, and then used Benefit Gimme Brow on top. I used the Becca Soft Light Powder on my 3DHD Sponge and went over it a brush to flick off any excess. I had to reapply the Moon Dust Shadow below my eye at this point because it had all come off already!
Next I used the Revlon Sculpt+Contour Kit to very delicately sculpt out my nose. My blush, bronzer and highlight for this look came from the Becca X Chrissy Palette, which I adore. For lips I used Jeffree Star Prom Night Lipstick, it’s a really fun hot pink colour. To complete the look I used Lilly Lashes Cannes Lashes, which I love because they’re so wispy. And that’s the finished look! I think it would be perfect for a prom if you used a more subdued lipstick and didn’t use the glitter below your eyes, otherwise it’s a fun glitter look for going out!
