Pink glitter eyes x Bold red lips.

Hey guys! When I met Rackel (the model featured in this post), I was blown away by her GORGEOUS features, and really good skin. I knew we had to do something striking.

so here’s Rackel before

I attended a makeup class in May, and I was truly inspired by the way the Beauty Educators fearlessly played with glitter. I hardly ever get clients requesting for glitter, and when I do, I’m like a kid in a candy store. So for Rackel, I did a soft pink glitter smokey eye and  red ombré lip combo.


I’m going to mention that you need some glitter adhesive to ensure that the glitter stays in place, My favourite is from Ben Nye. I usually purchase from Nigel’s Beauty Emporium.


This is my favourite red ombré combination on deeper skin tones – Nouba Mellibaci matte lipsticks in no 46 (darker red) and no 7.

She’s got dimples too :). So perfect!

With a simple Lip color switch, we got a somewhat tamer, but no less beautiful look.


Nude lip colour is a combo of LA girl lipliner in true brown and matte lipstick in fleur (also LA girl).


My current glitter set (30 colours), I got from, for less than $20. I used to buy from eyekandy cosmetics at $7 or so for one shade/colour. ha!
