All That Glitters Isn’t Just Gold

Vena Cava Fall 2011

Alright, I think we can all admit we’re full swing in the Gaga era, right?  And with her road beaded, bedazzled, and paved in extravagance, plenty of us girls want to follow suit, if only for a night or two.  Instead of spending another minute trying to work a meat dress into your style repertoire, give this simple and totally of-the-moment makeup tip a try.  Seen on fall 2011 runways of fashion heavyweights such as Armani and Vena Cava, the glittered out eyelid is a fresh and unexpected twist on party makeup.  Plus, you don’t have to have a makeup artist’s precision to get this look right!  Ready your lid with a good concealer or lid primer and then pick out your favorite metallic shade.  Color your entire upper and lower lids with this shadow and then prepare yourself for the big guns.  Break out that glitter, dust the excess off on the top of your hand, and press the brush onto your lid.  Keep it funky with soft, uneven edges or just enhance that perfect smokey eye you know and love so well.  And don’t forget to bat those lashes, honey.
