Purple and Green + glitter Eye Makeup Tutorial

This look was created using eyeshadows and glitter from
This was so much more sparkly in person!

For a while now I've been using Coastal Scents Synthetic Brushes and I LOVE them! So I'll mention which brushes I used through out the tutorial. 
Any part where you see me using the same brush more than once, I always wipe any excess shadow off of the brush before applying a new shadow. I use cloth diapers as my brush cleaner/wiper, rather than being wasteful and using tissue paper.  I always completely clean my brushes between each makeup look that I do (using Cinema Secrets brush cleaner), to keep them clean and to avoid color transfer.

Start by applying your favourite eye primer. I used Coastal Scents Shadow Worx Eye Primer. Then apply a very sticky base (Sobe's Stick It!, Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy or Darling Girls Cosmetics Glitter Glue all work great).

 Apply AL - Drama Queen Eyeliner Green to the outer 1/2 of crease, outer lower lash line and outer V, with CS's Classic Shadow Angle Synthetic Brush.

 Apply AL - Emeranta to the lid and inner crease, with CS's Classic Synthetic Blender Brush by patting and sweeping outward.

 Apply AL - Naida to the inner V with CS's Classic Detail Pointed Synthetic Brush by patting and sweeping outward.

 Apply AL - Drama Queen Eyeliner Green to the lower lash line, with CS's Classic Liner Medium Synthetic Brush.

 Using CS's Classic Shadow Large Synthetic brush, apply a skin tone shadow or use a powder foundation to blend and soften any harsh edges.

 With CS's Classic Synthetic Blender Brush, gently pat lid with Darling Girl Cosmetics Glitter Glue. With the same brush, lightly pick up AL Bete Noire Glitter - Eve, tap off any excess and lightly pat all over lid.

Apply a black liquid liner to the upper lash line, then wing outward.

Apply Red Cherry lashes #43 and black mascara to the lower lashes to complete the look. 

For the rest of what is on my face:
Eyebrows: e.l.f. Baked Eyeshadow - Burnt Plum (applied with CS's Classic Liner Medium Synthetic Brush)

Lips: Urban Decay - Gash

Skin MD Shielding lotion 
Sobe Botanicals Mineral Powder Foundation - Light Warm (applied with CS's small classic synthetic buffer brush)
Sobe Tinted Illusionist Powder (applied with CS's small classic synthetic buffer brush) 
NYX blush - Taupe (applied just below the cheek bones to contour using CS's Classic Blush Small Angle Synthetic Brush)
Sobe Blush - Orgasmic (applied to cheek bones and blending back toward the hair line with CS's Classic Blush Large Angle Synthetic Brush)
Sobe Blush - Fortune (applied above cheek bones to hilight)
  If you have any questions, please let me know!
