Glittery New Years Eve makeup tutorial

It's been a very long time since I have made a makeup tutorial for you so here is my last one of the year. I do hope you will enjoy it and make 2012 your year to sparkle and shine.....

1.We begin this look by adding a base to lock in your shadow for the rest of the night with "Cockerspaniel" from Bare Minerals. You can use a synthetic or natural haired brush for this. It really is your preferance.
 2. I have taken an off white shadow with a small amount of shimmer and added it to the inner corner of my eyes and just below the brow bone. Then, I used a silver shadow all over my lid but, not where I added the white.I used a small flat shadow brush to smooth it all out.
3. Now, I have added a bit of "smut" eyeshadow from Mac and mixed it with a rosey mauve eyeshadow from Lancome and have begun to define the outer corners of my eyes with a 217 or blending eyeshadow brush.

4. With the same brush I added a small amount of "carbon" black eyeshadow from Mac in the crease of my eye to create more definition then lined my eyes with a flat liner brush and the same shadow. Next, I added a bit of Duo glue to my lids where I wanted the glitter to stick. With my finger I patted on the silver rainbow glitter.
5. With a small lining brush and "blacktrack" gel liner from Mac I lined my eyes and rimmed them to create a more dramatic, defined line. It is important to do this AFTER you add the glitter or the glitter will stick to your eyeliner and it will look gray.
Here are the eyes after curling my lashes and applying false lash strips with a coat of mascara....

 6. Finally I finished off this look by adding a pretty pink blush "Escape and Lovely" from Bare Minerals, Highlighter in "Gossemer" from Bare Minerals to my cheek bones and down my nose and add a pinky nude lip with NYX lip liner in "Mauve", Lipstick from Revlon in "Pearl Pink" and lipgloss from Stila in "Kalidescope".

If you enjoyed this look please let me know by leaving a comment below. I may start making makeup tutorials as well as face painting tutorials in the New Year. Time to do something new.
 Have a safe and sparkly New Years eve!

Glittery love and New Years wishes,
