Glitter has been popping up more and more this season having featured on the catwalks, it is now making an appearance on celebrities. One star to get this look right is Lady Gaga who instead of showing up in one of her eccentric outfits, actually looked classy in a silver dress for the 2015 Grammy Awards. For her makeup she chose a glittery style smokey eye which is the easiest way to introduce this trend into your makeup, and avoids the risk of looking like a teenager experimenting with makeup for the first time!
We love how her glittery eyes were inspired by her custom made Brandon Maxwell gown, and this modern metallic smokey eye matching beautifully.
Get the look
Take a range of metallic cream shadows with a glitter shimmer as they will blend wonderfully creating that smokey edge. First take a silvery cream eye colour and apply it all over your eye lid. With a very pale, almost white, cream colour accentuate the inner corners of your eyes.
Next smudge a very dark, almost black, cream into the outer corners of your eye lids and along the lash line to create some depth.
Now you can take your favourite black eyeliner and apply it all around the eyes. Make sure that you blend it either gently with your finger or with a cotton bud so that you are not left with any harsh lines.
Finish off by curling your eyelashes and applying two coats of volumising mascara.
Once you have mastered a basic glitter smokey eye you can then look to becoming a bit more adventurous using different coloured glitters. How about just using glitter as an accent. Create a standard smokey eye look but apply a thin line of glitter eye liner under your lower lashes for a stand out evening wear look.
