Adding Sparkle To My Autumn Makeup

Prima pressed glitters

| Adding Sparkle To My Autumn Makeup! |

With Halloween just around the corner and the festive period slowly creeping up on us, it's the perfect excuse to start adding some sparkle to your makeup bag! I've recently been trying out some swoon-worthy pressed glitter eyeshadows from Prima* which will add some magic to your makeup look.

I never usually bother with glitters as they can require a lot of effort to apply and are normally quite messy to use as well. But the first thing I loved about these pressed glitters is the easy application. I've been applying them using my ring finger, packing the product onto the lid over some matte eyeshadows but they can also be applied straight to the naked eye and the best part is you don't need to use glue! There isn't any fallout so I was able to apply my foundation first and I was also able to apply my usual makeup in the morning for College, and then in the evening, I added some of the glitter eyeshadow to transform my look from day to night - An essential for party season! 

As you can see from the photo below, the glitters have a beautiful iridescent finish that glistens in the light. The staying power is excellent too as once they're on they don't budge until you remove them with a makeup remover and as well as that they're affordable, costing a mere £3.75! I received six shades in a beautiful silver palette* and I was really impressed with all of the shades and how well they performed.

Swatches L To R: Merry Berry // Hot Chocolate // Liquid Gold // Pink To Make The Boys Wink // Drama At The Disco // Starlight

The first shade I have is Merry Berry*, a vibrant red shade (perfect for Christmas!!), Hot Chocolate* is a bronzey chocolate brown, Liquid Gold* is a beautiful golden shade, Pink To Make The Boys Wink* is a light pink shade (my favourite one!), Drama At The Disco* is black with flecks of rainbow shimmer and last but not least is Starlight*, a gorgeous silver shade. 

For my pink eye look, I used my Anastasia Modern Renaissance palette for some matte pink shadows as well as my inner corner highlight. I decided to go for a spotlight eye and I applied the pink glitter to the centre of my eyes. It was so quick and easy to do!

What are your favourite glitter eyeshadows?
