I had beforehand tried out a extra minimal model of crystal make-up for a live performance by incorporating a single gem on the within of every eye, however that was so far as I would gone. Nonetheless, with Davy’s steering, I knew the sky was the restrict. Once I first sat down in her chair, she requested if I often put on coloured eyeliner or eyeshadow.

We determined to go for a blue eye-makeup second and obtained proper to it.

On high of that, she used the model’s new Eyeshadow Singles ($12) within the shade “Fairly Robotic,” a lilac pink hue, and blended it as much as my forehead bone. (Professional tip: she dabbed that shimmery colour onto the excessive factors on my cheeks, too, as a highlighter.)

After that, as a result of you may by no means have sufficient glitter, Davy used the Glitterpill Glitter Eye Paint + Liner ($20) in “Microcosm,” a silver shade, over the black liner to actually make it pop. As soon as she did that on each eyes, we have been prepared for the crystals.

What’s very nice concerning the Half Magic Magnificence crystals is that they have medical-grade adhesive on the again, so there is not any lash glue mandatory to use.

When Davy was completed, I seemed otherworldly. The make-up had an ethereal, whimsical really feel and actually accentuated my eyes.
