all that sparkles

Hey Lovelies! I actually got this post together a few weeks ago but am so incredibly unorganized sometimes that I’ve literally just come across it tonight. About the make up… 
I bought Liquid Metal in the Illamasqua sale just after Christmas and was hoping it would arrive in time for New Year’s Eve but it didn’t which was kind of rubbish! I do like my sparkles however so I will get use out of it. I was recommended to apply a base coat of powder shadow first as its a very creamy shadow and would crease. I’d also say use a powder on top to set because this creased within about half an hour of wear unfortunately. I was kind of disappointed as apart from this I do really like this product. It’s very pigmented, as is everything I have tried from Illamasqua and very easy to apply. I’m going to try and give it another go, probably on a night out and see how that works out.  
I have also used Illamasqua’s Sculpting Powder Duo to contour which is why I’m so glittery. My lipstick is MAC Lustre Lipstick in High Tea. 
PS there will be a better photo of this look on my Instagram as my camera takes UGLY front facing photos so feel free to check it out.

  3. Ughhh that is so perfect it's actually given me cravings. I LOVE a pigmented gold eye, definitely think I need to buy this next time I go near an Illamasqua counter – it's a shame it creased so soon though! xo
