Glitter n All things shiny
Im a bit of a magpie..loving all that sparkles!. So Glitter is an occassional hazard but a good thing in the right places and the right doses!
The first thing with glitter is that it really is hard to get off! So think carefully before you embark on all things glittery!
Top tip to remove....plasters. Olive oil is great too so that you can slide off the glitter and nourish the skin in the same sweep.
If you like the effect of subtle 'selfish fairylights' along the root of your lashes you can't beat Jemma Kidd Make Up School Topaz glitter liner. Its a gorgeous taupe truffle shade with multicoloured micro sparkles. Grown up glitter. Done and sparkled.
Silver screen mascara[3 shades] by JK at Asos.com has a handy screw thread wand to allow you to slide the lash through the glitter and the fine tip brush on the end of the same wand allows you to create a sweep along lashline. Multipurpose tool. Lovin' it. Investigate this one as the wand/brush combo is quite special.
Being artistic and you want to create your own glitter liner? MAC Pro Mixing medium Liner from the PRO stores allows you to paint a thin line and press loose glitter along the wet edge you create. Gorgeous. Ben Nye Black glitter along a black liner is quite the jet jewel edge for instant retro glamour.
