Magical Christmas look.........

(with false lashes)

This is an exaggerated and a little more dramatic (way more dramatic) version of Charlotte Tilbury's version of the glittery party eye. All thanks to the Illamasqua eyeshadow in Sex that made it so bright and beautiful (a bit drag like). Also a faintest inspiration comes from one of the uber amazing Christian Dior shows during John Galliano times when the models were made bright and wide eyed by the magician of makeup, Pat McGrath.

This look is very theatrical and can be mellowed down as per your needs. This makeup looks stunning for night time parties and you can also go extravagant with the purple glitter.

(Without false lashes)

So lets see how to achieve this look......

Curl the lashes with MAC eyelash curler. Tame the brows with Bourjois Sourcils  pencil in Ebony and then brush them upwards. Fill in space sparsely with MAC eyeshadow in Dark Edge. Conceal the under eyes with MAC Pro Long wear concealer in NC 42 (not my shade unfortunately).

With fingers apply MAC Paint pot in Groundwork on the entire lid and diffuse it softly into the crease.

Draw an inverted banana above the crease with Bourjois Khol and Contour Ultra Black pencil. This helps draw a perfect cut crease.

With a Sigma pencil eyeshadow brush, blend this pencil into a softer hue. There was some residual shimmer on the brush which added touches of silver which I really loved and did not mind.

With a flat Clarins eyeshadow brush, pat on Bourjois Light eyeshadow no.01 on the entire lid and just below the drawn new crease. This is an amazing mother of pearl, extremely sparkly eyeshadow and I love the pearly flecks that this baked concoction has.

Trace the upper lash line with the same Bourjois pencil and also draw a triangle on the outer 'V' and in the direction towards the crease too.

Blend this with the same eyeshadow pencil brush into a smokey haze and nothingness.

With Makeup Forever eyeshadow no.92, apply this gorgeous royal purple eyeshadow on the outer corners, crease and also on the lash line. There should be a purple hue which is gorgeous and amazing.

To create a holographic effect, apply Urban Decay eyeshadow in Omen on the entire area of purple that was traced before. See how the purple eyeshadow glows. Also apply Omen in the crease to create a lovely dimension for the eyes.

Smoke out no.92 eyeshadow on the lower lids too and apply omen just near the lash line for illuminating violet effect. Trace the inner rims with MAC Power point pencil in Gilded White.

Highlight the brow bone with Illamasqua eyeshadow in Sex. Also apply this blue based bright white eyeshadow in the inner rims and inner corners as shown in the picture.

Trace the lash line with Maybelline Hyperglossy eye liner in Jet Black. Keep the line as thin as you can to just create an illusion of almond eyes but not making the eye liner beat the glamour of this look. Also the eye liner will be a darker base for the eye lashes to stick on without hassles. Coat lashes with the lovely Estee Lauder Double Wear Lengthening mascara in Black.

Curl lashes again and then with a good lash glue stick on Uroparis False Lashes no.51.

Keep the rest of the face pink and rosy with a glossy pout for an elegant finish. You have an option to go dark on lips to contrast the whiteness of the eyes. Have you seen how big and dramatic the eyes look with white in them.
