Simple Neutral Glitter Eye Makeup Look

Do you ever become easily distracted by sparkly stuff when you should be doing something...more productive? Well, that's what I did when I was supposed to be cleaning my vanity. I got about half way finished when I all of a sudden went into mad scientist mode and started playing with glitter. What I mean by that is mixing various different glitter colours together and creating unique blends for myself to wear. Among the 5 I made, I created these 2 neutral glitter colours that I am wearing in this look. One is a lighter pinky toned neutral which consists of 6 different glitter colours. The other is slightly darker and a more pale brown toned neutral, which consists of 7 different glitter colours. I've been searching for the perfect neutral glitter for YEARS and finally created the perfect ones for myself. I love these so much!
Of course, this look was SOOOO much more sparkly in person!

I made zee necklace. :-)
