Wonderstruck by the Glitzy Luster

The first time I wore Bare Escentuals High Shine Luster, I fell in love with its luscious, buttery metallic color. I loved it again today, but more of its green undertones were apparent. I thought pairing it with  a grey color would work, so since I’m traveling and could only bring so much makeup, I popped open my Sleek MakeUp Oh So Special i-Divine palette and used the shimmery grey color and the matte black as a liner.

If you’re looking to duplicate this look (yay!!), it looks like there are a lot of steps for the eyes, but I actually did this look while holding my 2-week old baby nephew in one arm the whole time. Now picture me blowing on my fingernails and polishing them on my shirt. Yeah, I just bragged a little. 🙂 Yay for babies!

  • Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin
  • BE High Shine Luster from lashes into crease using the sponge applicator

  • Sleek MakeUp Oh So Special palette Bow on inner corner and to blend out any harsh lines above crease

About Essy
I'm finally figuring out this makeup thing in my 30's. It's so much fun to collect and play with new colors and styles. I'm not a makeup artist, and far from it. I welcome any comments and tips you have!
