Lately I’ve been getting more and more daring with my makeup looks, stepping away from regular eyeshadow and trying something different. I discovered Collection Glam Crystals Dazzling Gel liner recently and I’ve been using it religiously to add a touch of glam to some of my evening eye looks! Even better is that it is an absolute bargain beauty buy! I thought I would do a small review for you and show you my 3 favourite ways to wear it!
Firstly, glitter for life and not just for Christmas! I love adding it to my makeup looks all year round because I deserve to sparkle and shine! I have the Collection Glam Crystals Dazzling Gel Liner in 3 Shades – 01 Glitz, 03 Funk and 09 Retro Chic. I got 2 of them in Boots, but I picked up 09 Retro Chic in Poundland!
These liners are particularly easy to work with, they come with an uber fine applicator and are basically just glitter contained in a super-fast drying clear gel! They are so easy to build up and can be worn alone or over the top of eyeshadow making it super simple to create the look you want! They last forever without needing to touch them up and seriously compliment any eye look you can think of. There is such an awesome range of colours, from classic golds and silvers all the way to daring blues and fuchsias, so there really is something for every occasion. Now onto the looks!
I used 09 Retro Chic for this and I love how it stands out. I kept the lid bare, but you could add some definition to the crease with a medium brown shadow. Finish with lashings of black mascara or even your favourite falsies.
I used grey and silver shadows to create my smoky eye, which I felt complimented the Dazzling Crystals in 01 Glitz! I love how this looks and it just adds a finishing touch for me!
I started by priming my lid really well and setting that with a neutral shade of eyeshadow. I then created a brown toned smokey eye, using both matt and shimmer shadow and applied a gold shadow from the inner corner to around half way across my lid to create a base for the glitter. I added my black liner and let that dry before taking the Dazzling Crystals Liner in 03 Funk and adding this over the top of the gold shadow from the inner corner of the eye outwards. I made sure that when applying this to make it look blended, layering the product closer to the inner corner and adding less of the liner as I reach the darker shadow on the outer corner. It’s really important that once the glitter is dry, you get rid of any harsh lines by blending some of the gold shadow you used before and buffing this between the glitter and the black glittery shade. This just makes sure it looks really complete! Add some lashes and enjoy you’re night!
I hope you enjoyed seeing these three looks! Honestly I think I will continue to use this all year round, I cannot wait to get my hands on some more of the shades and try some more daring looks!
