Easy Party Makeup: Sparkly Smokey Festive Eyes

Easy affordable party makeup look


Inspired by my recent session with top Irish makeup artist Ken Boylan (WIN YOUR OWN MAKEOVER WITH KEN HERE!), I've been trying a few variations of an easy, wearable party eye that has a nice amount of sparkle, is longwearing and won't end up halfway down my face. Here's what I've ended up with and if you fancy seeing how I put it together you can check out my little video!
It's worth noting that I have avoided using eyeliner near my upper lashline and have skipped mascara as I am currently wearing lash extensions but I would otherwise include these steps.

Looks fab. Is that blot paper good?

Hi Claire, do you mean the S&G blot powder? It is good but I have only used it a handful of times - I generally use MAC's Blot Powder every day but when it is finished I will be using up the S&G xo
