An ode to the bowerbird and the glitter glory days of Studio 54, this starry-eyed look draws nostalgic inspiration from our favourite star-man Ziggy Stardust and the cosmic realm. We’ve partnered up with all time favourite MAC to create the Molten Store glitter makeup master class. Follow our beauty notes for a brave look that won’t go unnoticed.
Run free, run wild. This glittering trend is one for our stargazers; the free-spirited, the playful, the adventurous, and the bold. From dance floor rebels and sunset kisses to endless summers and fields of green, this beauty look will take you through the day and deep into the night.
We’re embracing the spirit of contradiction with a dewy base, natural lip, juxtaposed with a shiny smattering of glitter. When it comes to the base follow the rule of less is more, opting for a flawless base with a natural finish.
To start, prepare the base with MAC Strobe Cream which leaves the skin with a fresh, luminous dewy look. Apply Pro Longwear Waterproof Foundation and conceal under the eyes and any blemishes with Pro Longwear Concealer. We love this foundation… waterproof equals party-proof. Set the foundation as-usual with powder however apply powder sparingly to the eye area as glittery, metallic products will stick better to a tacky surface.
For the eyebrows we opted for a naturally groomed look. Fill the brows with Brow Powder Duo and coat the hairs with a brow gel (we love Brow Set) to create stronger definition by going against the grain of the hair, then finishing with upward strokes.
Using the most versatile eye brush (the MAC 215), apply “Vintage Selection“, a creamy champagne coloured eye shadow evenly across the lid, blending outwards to soften the edges. Then pick up “Ready to Party“, a pale lilac eyeshadow with cool undertones and a metallic sheen, and add to the in the inner corner, inner crease, and under the lower lash line blending it down until you carve out the desired eye shape. Press our glitter of choice “Reflects Blue” directly on top of where you applied “Ready To Party” to make it pop! As with all the eye products, the more you apply, the darker you go. The choice is yours.
Across the outer third of the crease, under the lower lash line and out to the temple (creating your desired circular shape) gently blend “Moon’s Reflection“, a bold periwinkle blue shadow with just a hint of shimmer. To make it pop, pick up “Reflects Purple Duo” and press the loose pigment on top the desired areas. Because we’re addicted to highlighter, finish the look by sweeping Lightscapade across cheekbones, and down the bridge of the nose. For more glittery inspiration head to our Pinterest board.
