TUTORIAL: How To Gold Glitter Party/Prom Makeup!

It prom season coming up and I was feeling inspired to create a standout-ish party makeup look!   I’m going to say now, this is possibly my favourite tutorial that I’ve ever done (as well as this one).  It’s a gold glitter smokey eye, teamed with pale Barbie pink lips which is eye-catching and irresistible!

Although this looks pretty impressive, it’s actually really easy and relatively quick to do.  Watch the video below to see how I created this look!

I wanted to use mainly affordable products that anyone can find on the high street to create this look, and also ones which are long lasting so you can really go to town and party all night without worrying about it all falling off your face at 1am.

My two favourite products in this tutorial are the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Loose Glitter and Lipcote. The glitter is available in a large variety of colours and is really easy to use with the Bondage Adhesive; simply apply the glue and tap on the glitter, building up layers until you’re happy with the look.

I paired the glitter with pale pink lips, Sweetheart Pink from The Body Shop and sealed it in with Lipcote, which helps to prolong the colour and stop it from smudging.  The trick is to apply your lippie, blot it on a tissue, repeat and then seal in with Lipcote for super kissable lips.  This way your lipstick really gets sealed in!

    I have been flirting with Lipcote for about a year now – I find on some lipsticks it really does add serious staying power but on others it makes them flake so my lips look chapped! I also find it transfers colour – my lipcote is now pink in the bottle not transparent! Still worth the investment though.
    Love the tutorial x

    In parties if you apply body glitter, then this is really looking different. Glitter makeup increases the beauty and every woman wants to look different, so apply this its a best option.

    This look is beautiful! I've tried lipcoat before and it made my lipstick last however it made my lips dry, it was quite an old one so i might have to re invest!
    I've just started a beauty/fashion/lifestyle blog and it would be great if i could get some people to see it, so if you wanna check it out please do!
