Oh glittery, magenta heaven! I was writing some reviews for Aromaleigh's Bete Noire glitters and they were so pretty and sparkly that I had to play with it. I grabbed my favorite, Carmilla- a sexy, pink-red mega glitter and lined my already green painted eyes and add a dap of sparkle to my lips.
At a very, very reasonable price of under $6 for a hefty 5 g jar- these finely milled glitters will last you a very long time. I recommend a fixative, I have Ben Nye's glitter glue- to keep these babies on bright and avoid fallout. Be careful around your eyes and use the fixative carefully- don't blind yourself, dearie! For this look, I just used an angled liner brush and dipped it into water. I was playing while my husband was watching the reviews of the US Senatorial election in Mass. The only debate I wanted to part of was which glitter to use- bah to politics! Well, while I'm dishing on the sparklies, that is!
The Carmilla added to POP the green I did earlier today...told you those AL pigments last...hours later, still bright and without a primer to boot!
Above, inside lighting, with no flash...I hate how it looks yellow and doesn't pick up the sparkle- this stuff just rocks!
With the flash. You can see the glitter, but when I looked at it in the mirro, it wasn't speckled at all, very uniform. If only I could have show THAT.
Gosh, I love makeup...it just makes my day!
Have a great day,
