Angelic Shimmery White

Hey everyone!

I love applying white shimmer eyeshadows in the eye lids. Not only it looks pretty, but also it brightens and opens up your eyes. I created this look before I went to work - I was so tired and still a little bit sleepy, and I needed something to make me look awake. Well, make-up did the work.

Since I have fair skin, sometimes white sheer eyeshadows would not show up that well. Here, I used a lot of different kinds of base before I applied the shimmery white eyeshadow. So, don't be surprised! :)

Let's get started!


Urban Decay Cream Eyeshadow in Midnight Rodeo, Covergirl Intense Shadowblast in  Beige Blaze 800,
Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original, MAC Eyeshadow in Phloof!, MAC Eyeshadow in Espresso,
Stila Kajal Eye Liner in Onyx, MAC Shadestick in Beige-ing, Rimmel Last Accelerator in Black,
L'Oreal Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner in Black

  1. Prime your eyes with Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original with your finger. 
  2. Take Urban Decay Midnight Rodeo, and place it on your lid. Then, blend it with your finger. 
  3. Apply MAC Beige-ing in your lid, then blend it with your finger (This product is not available anymore, but it is really not necessary for this look; you can just simply skip it).
  4. Place Covergirl Intense Shadowblast in Beige Blaze 800 in your lid, then blend it with your finger again. 
  5. Take your small shader brush, like in Stila #15, apply MAC Phloof! on top of all the bases that we just applied. 
  6. Apply MAC Espresso in the crease with Sigma E35
  7. Take your MAC Phloof! again, and place it under your browbone and inner tear duct with Sigma E40
  8. Use a pencil brush in Stila #15, and apply a little bit of MAC Espresso under your lower lashes. 
  9. Line your upper lashline with L'Oreal Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner in Black. 
  10. Line your waterline with Stila Kajal Eye Liner in Onyx
  11. Curl your lashes and apply a coat of Rimmel Lash Accelerator in Black mascara.
You're done! 

Let's move on to the face!

MAC Powder Blush in Well Dressed, NARS Laguna Bronzer, Benefit Hoola Bronzer,  Palladio Rice Powder in Natural,
Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer in Medium, Lioele Triple Solutions BB Cream, Urban Decay All Nighter 

MAC 109, Sigma F84, Sigma F70

  1. Apply Lioele Triple Solutions BB Cream all over your face with Sigma F84
  2. Cover your dark circles with Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer in Medium with Sigma F70, then blend it with your ring finger. 
  3. Use a powder puff, pat Palladio Rice Powder in Natural evenly. 
  4. Mix Benefit Hoola Bronzer and NARS Laguna Bronzer with MAC 109, then contour your cheeks. Also put it in the side of your forehead, jaws, and all over your neck. 
  5. Use MAC 109 again, sweep MAC Well Dressed in the apple of your cheeks. 
  6. Spray UD All Nighter to set up your make up, and you are done!

  1. Line your lips with NYX Sand Pink, then fill it in (just like using lipstick!). 
  2. Apply MAC Viva Glam Gaga on top of the lip liner (the lipstick is not available anymore, but use any light pink lipstick). 
  3. Apply NARS Lipgloss in Turkish Delight, and you're ready to go! 

How do you like this look? You can use this look not only for work, but also for school, hanging out in day time, etc. You do not need to use the exact products as I did if you do not have them. I used so many bases because white shimmery eyeshadows are sometimes too sheer for my skin tone, that's why I need one or two bases to make the eyeshadow pops! 

MAC Phloof! is frosted shimmery white, a little bit of pink in it. However, you can use any champagne or white eyeshadows with shimmer on it. Whereas MAC Espresso is just a matte brown. I used brown on the crease just to tone the white down, so that it wouldn't appear too bright and shimmery. 

Hope you guys like this look and happy trying!
