Black Flamingo Glitter LOTD

I've been wanting to try this type of look for a while. A few weeks ago I swatched several NYX jumbo pencils and layered many different glitters on top to see how they all would turn out. Flamingo glitter looks pink in the jar with blue reflects. But when applied over NYX black bean, it only showed the blue sparkles. Which I fell in love with and knew I needed to do a look with it. So here it is!


I took all of the above photos with flash and wanted to try some in direct sunlight without flash to capture the sparkles. I was only trying to get a close up of my eye but some turned out really artsy. I was going to delete these but then decided I'll post them anyway!

They didn't really capture the sparkles the way I hoped but I got some neat pics out of it. I look pissed but it was just that my eyes were burning from the sunlight! Ha! :-)

Eyes (all applied in this order):
