Subtle Daytime Glitter Look

Subtle Daytime Glitter makeup tutorial

I love glitter but it can look a bit OTT when worn during the day. Recently, when I had to go for an event in the afternoon, I decided to do this subtle glitter makeup look. Because I received several compliments for this look, I wore it for other events and family functions and each time, people really appreciated it, especially the subtle glitter and pop of colour on the eyes.

What I like most about this look, besides the glitter, of course, is that it is quite versatile and wearable. There is nothing overpowering here – everything is kept soft and natural-looking. There is no harsh contouring, blinding highlighter, no layers and layers of eyeshadows topped with false eyelashes. Most importantly, this look can be done in a matter of minutes – which is great when you are in a rush and don’t have time to do elaborate makeup.

Check out my tutorial to know how I have created this look:

Instead of theteal eyshadow that I have used as an eyeliner, you could use an eye pencil or kohl to make the application easier and quicker. You could also switch the colour – emerald green, deep sapphire blue, rich purple or a dark bronze are some shades that would look lovely as well.
