Golden Pink and Purple Glitter Makeup look with Sobe Botanicals

This look turned out WAY more sparkly than the pictures show. The shadow turned out very soft and blended, so I went over it with NYX candy glitter liner. My husband said, "I normally wouldn't say this to you but that's too much glitter. I mean, you need a glitterectomy!"  Seriously, it was way too sparkly...I never thought it was possible to do that, but it happened. The pictures show the right amount of sparkle that I was going for but IRL, I was almost...almost embarrassed to go to the grocery store...not joking!

  1. Love the eye look. and the lipstick like the glitter on it is just nice not overdone beautiful done

  2. Now that I read what u said indeed u cant notice is to much in the pictures it looks decent

  3. That's got to be a LOT of glitter for you to feel it is too much. LOL Your lashes are super long and that adds to the dramatic effect.
