Steal the spotlight with this bold, shimmering look! In this makeup tutorial, Nic from Pixiwoo shows you how to create a radiant, glowing look that’s sure to turn heads. This tested technique uses glitter to highlight and brighten for an elegant shine.
To begin, take a moisturizer and a Sculpting Brush, gently working it over the skin. Then, apply an even layer of primer, to prep your skin for your foundation. With the same brush, apply your favorite foundation; pushing it along any areas you feel need more coverage. Next, with an Expert Concealer Brush and your preferred concealer, cover any dark spots under your eyes and around our nose.
Then, with a Spoolie, Brush your eyebrows up, evening out any jagged edges with your favorite color and a Brow Brush. For a more natural look, apply a touch of brow gel, working the excess away with your spoolie.
Next, take a Square Foundation Brush and run a cream product along your cheekbone. This is where the strobing will happen. Take your glitter of choice and run it over your cheekbones with Fan Brush. Add as much as you like, from a slight sheen to a bold glow. With Setting Brush, powder any areas that you don’t want to shine. Apply a bit of glitter over your eyelids with a Brow Highlighting Brush, finishing with a touch of mascara. Take your favorite color lip liner and lipstick and apply to round out the look, buffing with a Lip Brush.
For an extra pop that’s impossible to ignore, take a Square Foundation Brush and a stronger glitter, pushing it over your cheekbones for a brighter glow. With a Lip Blur Brush, apply a touch just above and below your eyes. If there’s any stray glitter you’re unsure of, wick it away with your Spoolie.
