This week I decided to try a glitter gradient on my nails.
(it glitters more in person)
I started with a white base coat and applied pink glitter starting halfway down my nail.
I continued with the glitter going closer to the end of my nail adding 3 or 4 coats until I was satisfied with the results.
I wanted a matching makeup look, but I had to go a little more extreme.
I started with frosty pink on the inside half of my eyelid.
I added a brighter shade of pink to the outside corner of my eyelid.
I then drew a triangle with a purplish frosted pink color out past the end of my eyebrow.
You can stop here and have a pretty awesome slightly edgy look by adding some mascara and maybe a small cat eye with some liquid liner, but that's clearly not enough for me. ^_^
I framed around my shadow with black liner adding a dramatic point.
I also lined around my eye and drew a heart on my cheek with a regular black pencil, I filled that in with pink shadow.
My hubby wanted me to bring the black across the bridge of my nose ala The Hamburglar, and I started to, but I like this more.
(Kind of like an eye I guess?)
I tried to do a bit of an ombre lip with frosted pink in the middle fading to a darker purplish on the outer corners.
I also added a dab of loose white glitter powder to the center of each lip.
Voila! The perfect look for Dinner at my Mother-In-Law's!
I will return later to add my Kiddie tidbit. Off to smoke some Hookah with the In-Laws!
