Neutral Sparkle Makeup Tutorial

I don't know about anyone else but when I was in elementary school (or primary school as we called it in Australia) I loved wearing glitter. I had several different types of body glitter and face glitter. I just thought it was the coolest. Unfortunately wearing glitter becomes a little less cool as you get older. 

Last month in my Ipsy Glam Bag, I got a palette of gorgeous glittery cream eye liners/eye shadows. I wasn't sure how or when I could wear them though. I realized that the lighter, champagne colored glitter could easily be used with other neutral colored eye shadows to create a glittery look that wasn't too bold and wouldn't make you look like a ten year old. 

You can check out the results in the following tutorial.

Here are the products that I used:

Urban Decay's Naked Palette (can buy here)

J. Cat Beauty Sparkling Cream Palette (can buy here)

Now for the tutorial (written instructions are below the image):

1. Apply Sin from the Naked Palette to the main lid
2. Apply Sidecar from the Naked Palette to the outer half of main lid
3. Apply Smog from the Naked Palette to the crease and the outer corner of the lid
4. Apply Virgin from the Naked Palette underneath the brow bone and to the inner corner of the eye
5. Dab the middle, champagne colored glitter from the J. Cat Beauty Sparkling Cream Palette to the main lid
6. Apply black liquid liner to the upper lash line
7. Apply black pencil liner to the lower lash line
8. Curl lashes and apply mascara

Even if you don't own the Naked Palette, this look can easily be recreated with drugstore eye shadows in neutral tones (see here and here). The glitter shadow from J.cats is only $4.49 for that gorgeous palette so it's definitely worth considering it!

  1. I like your tutorial! Where did you get the JCat sparkling cream palette? I got it with the Ipsy glam bag and I just thought it was too glittery for daytime, and since I don't really go out in the evenings at all, I found no use for it at all. I should try it, though. Maybe in tiny amounts it can look pretty. :)

    1. Thanks! I go it in the Ipsy glam bag too! I didn't think I would end up using it but then I thought of this neutral-ish look. I'm not sure how much I'll use the bolder colors though.

  2. This look is so effortless looking but absolutely stunning! Thanks for showing a tutorial, maybe one day I'll get it right, haha. :)

    1. Thanks! It's really not too hard so I'm sure you could pull it off :)

  3. a glammed up everyday look, love it!
