My latest makeup purchase is the “Charmed” 4-piece eye collection from Bare Escentuals.
The kit contains three glimmers and one eye liner shadow. These are the shades:
Trust Glimmer – a golden lavender
Hope Glimmer – a rosy mauve
Grace (great name!) Glimmer – a golden beige
Now Liner Shadow – a plum wine
All are tucked into a pretty little pink clutch bag with a jeweled clasp.
This set is perfect for creating soft, pretty spring looks.
You can use glimmers wet or dry. When used dry, they create a subtle sparkly effect and really open up the eye area. If you dampen the brush slightly and make a paste with the glimmer powder, you can create dramatic foiled looks.
A word of caution: Use sparingly. You only need a tiny amount of the glimmers or you’ll end up looking like a disco-era diva.
Check back tomorrow when we tell you how to create your own glimmers for a fraction of the cost.
