Get the look:
  • Before you apply your eye makeup be sure to apply a primer to hold your foundation in place. I used the Hard Candy Perfecting Primer and I just applied it with my makeup sponge.
  • Apply an eyeshadow primer or if you don't have one apply a concealer and go over it with a bit of powder. 
  • Apply a white base and blend over lid. I used the Milani Shadow Eyez stick.
  • Taking an eyeshadow brush mix a dark purple with a bright purple and place it all over your lid going past your crease.
  • Using the other side of that brush apply black in the outer corner blending with the purple. Now switching to your crease/blending brush blend the black  over the crease.
  • Using the side you applied the purple with apply a shimmer bright purple over the purple for an extra pop of color.
  • Add a highlight under your brow and use it to blend out the black.
  • Using a flat liner brush apply a dark green under your lower lash line extending out.
  • Line your eyes with black eyeliner.
  • Now to give us the glitter look apply glitter over the eyeshadow and wherever else you want it.
  • Curl your lashes and add mascara.
  • Using a stippling brush apply your foundation to your face.Blend it in and remember to put some on your neck.
  • If you have darkness under your eyes be sure to apply some concealer.
  • Next apply a powder to set in your foundation and concealer. 
  • Taking a contour brush and elf bronzing powder begin to contour your face, place it at the hollows of your cheek, temples, both sides of your nose (optional) and along your jawline  This of course if optional and it will make your face appear slimmer.
  • Now using your blush brush begin to apply a blush to the apple of your cheeks.
  • Using a brush, I used my foundation brush since it was the only clean brush near me, apply some concealer over your lips.
  • Line your lips and fill them in with the lip liner.
  • Apply your lipstick with a lip brush, blot it and then apply some face powder.
  • Apply the lipstick directly to the lips, doing these steps will help make your lipstick last.
  • Since I wanted the lipstick to look a little bit darker I applied a brown lipgloss over it.
