I’m not a big fan of the whole ‘New Year’s resolutions’ malarkey, but there is one thing I’m determined to achieve this year…
In 2016 I was all over blogging – in fact, back then I was blogging about three times a week. While that isn’t achievable at this moment in time with the amount of time I’m investing in creating new Instagram looks, I can definitely commit to at least one post a week.
So that is my commitment to the lovely followers who have stuck with me during a ‘dry spell’ throughout 2017.
It’s now 2018 and I’m ready to talk about a product I fell in-love with last year… the NYX Cosmetics Glitter, specifically the ‘Copper’ shade (pictured left).
Easily applied with a little help from the NYX Glitter Primer, this loose glitter is not only super affordable – (available for roughly £5 in the UK), it’s also reasonably sized, with a selection of super sparkly, vibrant shades to choose from.
‘Copper’ is an extremely intense orange, perfect for adding a sparkle to any grungy look (see the image at the top of this post).
I was also treated to a selection of their mini glitters over Christmas, including the gold… and wow, it was the perfect product to bring a little sparkle to the close of 2017!
For this look, I decided to create a half cut-crease and see how the glitter blended into shadow; this wasn’t difficult at all.
Nor was applying liquid liner (the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner, to be precise) over the glitter.
There is nothing worse than trying to apply liner over a fairly chunky (fine) glitter and not being able to achieve a dramatic wing… but this wasn’t a concern with the NYX glitter.
I still have a little pink pot to put to the test, so keep an eye on my Instagram to see the results!
P.s. what do you guys think of my new yellow hair?!
