How to: Glitter Trio Eyes

Have you seen the sandwich eyeshadow look, strange name but it is a gorgeous eyeshadow technique that is really easy to create. Using two different shades you ‘sandwich’ them together, with your first shade you place it in the inner and outer corners of the eye, then the second shade is “sandwiched” in the middle. For last nights look I tried this technique out using browns and gold glitter and here is a quick tutorial on how I created it should you wish to have a go yourself.

Step 1: Prime your lids, then using a light brown matte shade pop it into the inner corner and outer v of the eye.

Step 2: Taking a gold shimmery shade, pop into the middle of the lid.

Step 3: Take a dark brown colour on a straight flat eyeshadow brush and run it over the crease of your eye. This step isn’t necessary but I think it adds a nice dimension to the eyes.

Step 4: Using a gorgeous gold glitter apply into the middle of the eye for extra sparkle.

Step 5: Taking the same dark brown shade used on the crease, run this along your lower lash to tie the look together.

Step 6: Finish with a thick swipe of black liquid eyeliner and false lashes or lots of volume mascara.IMG_9083

Brown glittery lids are my favourite to create and I usually keep it really light in the inner corner and just leave the browns for the outer corners but I really liked how this look came out. To brighten up the inner eye and make the eyes appear a little bigger I popped a little highlighter in the tear duct – one of my favourite tricks to do.IMG_9084
