I'm Danielle Cavalear, professional makeup artist. Today, I'm going to show you how to apply shimmery eye makeup. First, on our model, as you can see, she's dark haired and a light fair complexion, so we're going to want to just start out the whole eye thing with a nice, clear palette. So, we're going to do a loose powder all over the face, all over the eyes, and that will help create a base for any makeup we apply on top of it. Next, I'm going to use this Clinique shimmer powder. It's more of a bronze, and we're going to use this eye shadow brush to apply it. You're going to want to start on the bottom corner. Now sometimes, this gets a little flaky, so we'll clean it up after we finish applying the glittery makeup. You want to cover the entire eyelid. You do not want to go all the way up to the brow. That would be a little bit too dramatic, so we're going to just stick with the eyelid, make sure we cover the entire thing from inner corner to outer corner and then to finalize this look we're going to add an eggshell colored shadow on top. Make sure you make your way all the way to the corner. Next, use your blush brush and have your model look up. Just going to brush away any glittery flakes that may have fallen under the eyes during the process, and that is how to apply shimmery eye makeup. I'm Danielle Cavalear, professional makeup artist.
