Face First

  1. Get to grooming those brows. I recommend using Anastasia’s Brow Kit for best results.
  2. Prep your face with moisturizer and primer to keep your skin soft and smooth.
  3. Apply foundation to even skin tone for flawless natural coverage. 
  4. Finally, add some color to your cheeks by applying a cream blush for a flush look.

Dazzle ‘Em

  1. Line your lids with eyelash adhesive as you would an eyeliner pencil.
  2. Apply the glitter along the top lash line and to the ends of your lashes with a brush.
  3. Finish by lining your bottom lid with a thin layer of black eyeliner.

Now your Glittery Eyes look is complete, and you can purchase all the products you need below.
