The Doll Challenge Day 6- Glitter

I love playing with glitter, I hate removing it, especially from my face. But, Day 6 of the Doll Challenge called for glitter, and I was going to deliver!

MUA Cosmetics "Twilight" Glitter Eye Palette
Glitter Pieces

88 Warm Palette
Mirenesse "Black" Longwear Gel
MUA Cosmetics "Twilight" Glitter Eye Palette
Prestige "My Blackest Lashes" Mascara

Maybelline "Shocking Coral" ColorSensational lipstick
Espionage Cosmetics "Whamm" Mineral Pigment

I began with creating a rather thick winged liner, using Mirenesse "Black" Longwear Gel. I then patted the lightest colour from the MUA "Twilight" Glitter Eye Palette. This took a lot of time and product, as it was hard to get the glitter to show up, as it was getting rather lost in the black liner. Then, with all that cream product, it just slid, and transferred onto my hooded crease, so no EOTD shots for this one. I applied the blue glitter from the same palette over brown liner along my lower lashline.

After applying the Natio BB Cream, I dabbed my fingers first in the purple glitter and patted the cream onto my cheeks and up to my brow bone. I highlighted the top of my cheeks with pieces of opalescent glitter, that appears to be have been a waste of time, because I could not capture it, no matter what angle I photographed from. Sigh. Anyway, I then used the darker pink glitter cream underneath the purple, to kind of contour.

Lips were fairly simple. I applied Maybelline "Shocking Coral" lipstick, then patted on Espionage "Whamm" Mineral Pigment with my finger. Just love the glittery pinky coral finish.

I have quickly discovered that glitter is really hard to capture on a camera. But, I did have fun getting all glittery. Removing it wasn't so fun. I was still seeing the odd sparkle days after creating this look.

Stay tuned for Days 7 and 8 :)


  1. It really must be difficult to capture on camera, there's not a lot visible. I can imagine the drama you had cleaning it off. I can well believe you were finding the odd sparkle for days afterwards, lol!

  2. I was mostly disappointed with the opalescent glitter, it looked so pretty in real life, but didn't show up at all on my camera
