From subtle, pearl-like shimmer to vibrant metallic glitter, eye makeup is all about bling in 2019. Be on par with the trend by building your own kit with essentials for shimmery eye makeup. Here’s what we think will work for any kind of sparkly eye and keep you covered on all occasions.
The Right Base – Eye Makeup Primer
An eye primer is key to long-lasting eye makeup and its smooth application. So, before you begin adding colour or sparkle to the eyelids, prep them up with this eye primer by Wet n Wild. It not only creates a smooth base but also brightens up the eyelids for better colour payoff.
Lustrous Eyes For All Occasions – Eye Palette
Pearlescent sheen or rich glimmer – an eye palette such as the Redemption Essential Day to Night Eyeshadow Palette by Makeup Revolution London adds just the right dose of drama to the eyes. A potpourri of subtle day and vibrant night-time shades, these eyeshadows offer high colour payoff and blend smoothly, helping you create diverse, custom eye makeup looks with ease.
Metallic Bling – Foil Eyeshadow
Foil eyeshadows are the season’s biggest eye trend. For the uninitiated, this eyeshadow features a metallic foil finish and is a great pick for party and night-time makeup looks. Foil eyeshadows can be worn in many ways – something as simple as a dot in the inner corner of the eyes to something as elaborate as all-over colour which extends to a dramatic wing. To create a custom metallic eye look, try out Makeup Revolution London Flawless Foils Metallic Eyeshadow. The soft, cream-to-powder eyeshadow creates a sheer shimmer look when used sparingly and a bold metallic effect when layered. What’s more, it comes with a primer works for vivid colour and long-lasting finish.
Shimmer N Shine On The Go – Eyeshadow Crayon
We agree that creating multi-toned, jewel-like sparkling eyes isn’t something that you can pull off every day. So, for occasions where you hardly have the time (and energy) to do elaborate eye makeup, MyGlamm Powder Magic Eyeshadow comes to your rescue. A quick swipe and some blending, you’re ready to rock the monochrome shimmer eyes like a pro.
Everyday Sparkle – Eyeliner
Glistening eyeshadows may not be for every occasion but shimmery eyeliners definitely are. Lend a subtle, sparkly twist to work makeup with a shimmery cat’s eye or turn heads at the cocktail party with a graphic wing using the Lakme 9 To 5 Naturale Gel Eyeliner. This eye pencil with a satiny, gel-like finish and fine shimmer gets your eyes noticed no matter what you choose to create. Plus, it’s available in five shades to match your makeup whims and fancies.
