This glittery glam eye look is perfect for a party

While most of us have our daily makeup routines sorted, when it comes to bigger events, it can be tricky to decide exactly what to go for. Many party appropriate makeup looks tend to be complex and messy, which isn't ideal for most regular makeup users. However, by picking the right products and utilizing some clever application techniques, you can create an intricate look with deceptive ease.
Glitter is notoriously problematic when it comes to makeup, but it's also one of the most effective ways to take your party look to the next level. Newer formulations now mean applying glitter needn't be a long and agonizing process. The best part is that you still get the same incredible, eye-catching effect without the hassle.

Instructions
1. Using a domed eyeshadow brush, apply a tinted shadow base all over your eyelid.
2. Take a warm, peachy shade (we used Eden from the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Palette) on a fluffy brush and work it into the crease.
3. Use a more intense orange shade (we used Blazing from the same palette) to intensify the crease.
4. Take a warm, brick red (we used Amber from the same palette) and build up intensity in the outer corners of your eyes.
5. Use a deep, burgundy eyeshadow (we used Hickey from the Bad Habit After Hours Palette) and add even more depth of colour to the outer corners of the eyes. Take a small amount of the shade underneath the lower lashline to smoke out the look.
6. Use a small, flat eyeshadow brush to apply a full coverage foundation to the inner part of each eyelid up to the crease.
7. Use the same brush to apply a glitter eyeshadow primer in the same area you applied the foundation.
8. Take a pink glitter pigment on the same brush, and press over the are you've primed. The primer will ensure the glitter sticks down and minimize fallout.
9. Use a small detailer brush to apply a shimmery pink eyeshadow to the lower lashline. We used Eye Contact from the Bad Habit After Hours Palette.
10. Apply black mascara liberally to both top and bottom lashes.
11. Use tweezers to apply a strip lash to each eye for extra drama.
12. Line lips with a red lip liner.
13. Apply a matte red lipstick using a lip brush for maximum precision to complete the glamorous look.
