Bringing out my inner drag queen, glitter galore eye make up look!

Last weekend I felt inspired to play around with make up and wanted to do a mad look with lots of glitter so what did I do?  I drew inspiration from Deborah Lippmann's Across The Universe polish, so sit back and take a look at this tacktastic tutorial!

These are the products I used:

Top to bottom: Bourjois Volumizer mascara, Sephora Jumbo Pencil in Midnight blue, MUA glitter liners in shade 9 and 8, Mac eye shadow in Blue Flame and Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Eyeliner.

First up I used the Sephora Jumbo Pencil along the upper lid, tracing out the shape I wanted.

I applied Mac's Blue Flame and patted it over the jumbo liner, softening the edges.

I applied the jumbo pencil to the lower lash line, joining it to the outer edge and ever so slightly at the inner corner.

Next I took the Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Eyeliner and drew a line along the upper lash line, making a wing at the outer edge.  I also applied it to the upper and lower waterlines, adding some drama baby!

Now it was time to go disco ball on it!  I applied the MUA glitter liners on both upper and lower lash lines.  The blue went on top first, going over the black line from the previous step.  I applied the green glitter under my lower lashes and became mesmerized with the light reflecting off the glitter! 

I lashed on the Bourjois Volumizer mascara and decided I wasn't finished with the look.  So I applied the blue glitter over the green glitter and vice versa, leaving me with proper drag queen eyes!

I love playing around with make up like this.  I'm not a professional make up artist, I'm just someone who likes to mess around with it and basically, if I can do this, so can you.  There is no mad blending, mad techniques, mad products, just plopping the make up on and seeing what happens!

Now, all I was missing was some fake lashes, next time!


  1. Love it & love that you were inspired by a bottle of nail polish.

  2. Same as Paula ^^^ So cool to be inspired by an object!! Totally turned out like it too :)

  3. Such a fab similarity to the nail varnish! Is it wrong that I think I would wear this for a night out! And I thought my days of blue eyeshadow weren't to come for another 60 years!


  4. The glitter is gorgeous! :) Loving this look!

  5. Love the look..really love the shape of the eyeshadow that you applied!

  6. I wish I could get inspiration from a nail polish. But nooooo, I stick to my neutral eyeshadows, LOL.

    Love the look my lady! xo

  7. Love it ... I love a bit of glitter
