Summer Glitter Makeup Tutorial

Multipurpose face palettes are so underrated! Even palettes like the Ace Beaute Bronzed in Paradise palette, which only includes bronzing shades can still be used in many different ways. These are some of my favorite products to use, especially during the hot Summer months when my makeup routine is kept to a minimum.

Normally I would start my eyeshadow look with a primer, but we’re skipping that step and going straight in with the StudioMakeup Endurance Cream Eyeshadow in the shade Pink. To apply this, I’m taking the provided doe foot applicator and patting it all over my eyelid. It does take a while to dry, which is when a handheld fan would be very useful.

The first coat of glitter wasn’t as noticeable as I was hoping, so once it was dry I added a second layer on top. During application, I made sure to be very precise with the glitter and not get it in the crease area. I also didn’t touch the glitter at all while it was wet because that will make it patchy.
Once all of the glitter was completely dry, I took the Ace Beaute palette that I received in my July Boxycharm and used the second bronzer shade to add some definition in my crease. I am using a decently small brush to apply this because I want a precise application in order to not bother the glitter.
Then I’m taking the first bronzer shade in the palette and gently buffing that right at the edge of where the other shade stops in the crease. This will not only add more definition to the crease area and create a more blended look, but it will also make the eyes appear bigger and more open.
For the most part, I am skipping eyeliner for this look. However, I have been loving using this Pixi Endless Shade Stick in the color MatteCocoa to create an illusion along the lash line. This is a very creamy formula, so it works beautifully for filling in the tiny gaps between the lashes. And because it’s a soft brown shade, it provides an undetectable shadow to make the lashes appear thicker.

To keep it even more natural looking, I only applied it halfway along both the upper and lower lashes. I left the top untouched and just barely smudged the bottom line to create the softest appearance possible.
The finishing touch is mascara and then the look is complete! I curled my lashes twice and added three coats of the Tarte Big Ego mascara. Since this is such a natural look, I’d definitely skip falsies to prevent overpowering the soft shades on the eyelid.
For the rest of the face, I used a combination of the second and third bronzer shades to provide more shape to my forehead, cheeks, and nose. I also applied my current favorite Makeup Geek blush in the shade Covet and used a combination of the Appeal Cosmetics Ultra Créme Lipstick in the shade Muse topped with the Alamar Cosmetics lip gloss in the shade Birthday Suit to pull it all together.
Although the cream shadow isn’t as shimmery as I thought it was going to be, I do think the glitter is really pretty. Bronzer palettes are some of my favorite products to use for the crease because they look so natural. I’m especially loving this lippie combo! The gloss is a little thick, but it’s still pretty comfortable and it smells like a cupcake!
