Smokey Holographic glitter NYE Makeup look/Tutorial

I knew that everyone and their mom was probably wanting to do a NYE look with holographic glitter, but that didn't stop me from doing my own. Rather than filling in my eyebrows with powder, I used Kryolan's aqua color liner in Black Interferenz (iridescent) to paint them on (it was a little difficult as I'm used to using powder), then applied Collection 2000 Glam Crystals Dazzling gel liner (the purple one!) on top.


Click "read more" below for the tutorial.  I used SMH (Stars Makeup Haven) shadows for this look.

 Apply a very tiny amount of Monistat Chafing Relief Powder-Gel (or whatever anti-crease primer you like) to the upper lid with ring finger, let it set about 30 seconds. Then apply Detrivore Eye Primer on top and the lower lash line (it's sticky, a little shimmery and makes eyeshadow more bold) using the ring finger as well.

 Take a brush like MAC 217 (or any shader/blender brush you like) and apply SMH - Divine just below the eyebrow and blend downward into the crease.

 Take an angled shadow brush (or any shader/blender brush you like) and apply SMH - In a Bind to the outer half of eyes by patting, then sweeping.

  Take a brush like MAC 239 (or any shader brush you like) and apply SMH - Electra-fied to the inner half of the upper lid by patting.

 Soften the edges with a blending brush.

  Take a small brush like MAC 228 and apply SMH - Divine to the inner corner by patting.

 Apply NYX Candy Glitter liner in Disco Ball to the inner half of upper lid by swiping it on.

 Take a small brush like MAC 228 and apply SMH - Ultra Violet to the inner half of lower lash line by patting.

 Take a liner brush like MAC 210 to mix with water and Kryolan Aquacolor liner - Black (the best liquid liner ever!) to get the consistency you like and gently, slowly apply to the upper lash line and extend outward to form a wing then connect to the outer lower lash line. Remember practice, patience and a steady hand will create lovely winged liner.
If you don't have Kryolan Aquacolor liner, then use whatever liner you want.

 Apply false lashes. I used Ardell #111. To help your false lashes look more natural, after you have applied them, go back over your lash line with the kryolan liner. This will help conceal the band. :-)

 Apply NYX Jumbo Pencil in milk to the water line. Will make your eyes look bigger. 
Then to finish the look, apply your fav mascara to your lower lash line. I used Cover Girl Volume exact mascara in Very Black 

End result!

Here's the rest of what is on my face:

Lips: NYX lip liner in blackberry
Morgana Cryptoria Vegan Lipstick in Otherworldly

Face: Skin MD Shielding lotion
Physicians Formula Healthy Wear SPF 50 Powder in Translucent Light (applied using a flocked sponge by patting then blending) 
Joelle Cosmetics - Rose Glow Radiance (applied to cheeks with a small angled blush brush)  

If you have any questions, please let me know.
