I was so happy to be given the chance to do another makeup photo session with Maureen, the mastermind behind Maureen Koo Calligraphy
. Since we did a pretty natural look last time, I decided to create a glittery smokey eye for her to wear for her night out!
|Before & After|
|A closer look..|
My secret weapon for this shoot was a bottle of Pixie Epoxy.
For anyone who works with loose pigments, shadows, and glitter, this magical bottle will be sure to become your best friend. I don't know about you, but I find it almost impossible
to put glitter pigment or even some shimmery/glittery eyeshadows on without fallout all over my face. While the glitter is supposed
to stay on my eyelid, by the end of the day, my entire face becomes a glittery mess
A quick dab of Pixie Epoxy helped me keep this MAC glitter pigment pot intact on her eyelids. The best part? (Besides the fact that an enormous tube only costs $7!)
The epoxy enhances the color of the pigment (whatever color it is that you choose to use) and keeps it on throughout the day without feeling like you've got anything heavy on your lids. A very happy Maureen texted me the next day to report that she had absolutely no glitter fallout all night ;).
