Happy Monday babes!
I love using more matte shadows on my clients eyes than shimmer, but a POP in the center can add some real dimension to any eyeshadow look! My favorite matte & shimmer combo palettes at the moment are: Lorac Pro 1&2 and Too Faced Chocolate Bars. I have also been really loving the Anastasia Beverly Hills metallic shadows for my shimmer colors as well. These are very shiny already, but to make them stand out more, I have a special trick that I always use! See below how to turn up the shine with your eyes today!

How to: Shimmer POP
Base: Painterly MAC Primer
Sides of eye:Anastasia “Birkin” - Ultra Matte warm mauve beige - Apply with a small shadow brush to the inner corner of eyelid and outer corner of eyelid. Blend into both creases. Add a darker brown to the same areas and lightly blend into the crease as well- I used Anastasia “Ash Brown”
Center Shimmer:Anastasia Beverly Hills “Glisten” - a Metallic shimmer beige
Spray: MAC Fix + – You must spray your shadow brush with this before you apply the shimmer shadow to brush. Then press the shimmer to the center of the eye lid! This spray works as a barrier for the shadow to stick more to the eyelid skin and really POPS the color!
Liner: theBalm “Shwing” - This is a new favorite liquid liner of mine. With its small tapered applicator, it is easy to get very close to the lash line and create thing winged liner! Apply to the inner corner of the eye first, working your way outwards towards the end and lightly flicking it up for the cat-eyeliner look.
Lashes: Huda Beauty “Samantha” - These ultra wispy, thick lashes are perfect for a fluttery look like this one! Sold online only!
