In the Winter I really love adding a bit of sparkle to my make up look and I thought I'd share with you what glitter and pigments I've been using recently, and they're all affordable!
If you're a newbies and fancy trying out some shimmery pigments for the first time I'd definitely recommend checking out Barry M's Dazzle Dusts! They have such an amazing range of colours and are really nice quality. They blend incredibly and are only a couple of pounds, they can be used as an all over eye shadow or just gently patted on top of your eye shadow to add some shimmer.You really don't need a lot at all, so they last forever! I've had these years and I wouldn't even say I'm half way.
These are by Accessorize, they are a couple of years old and I haven't been able to find them in the shops so I think they have been discontinued or repackaged or something, but I thought 'd throw them in anyway because I'm sure that loads of other brands do similar ones. They are just glitter pigments which are really lovely to apply over the top of your eye shadow look, especially in the middle of the lid or toward the outer corner with a darker colour blended into the crease. I've been wearing these loads recently and will definitely be wearing the silvery taupe one on Christmas day and New years! They just need pressing onto the lid and they are very buildable.
L'oreal Infallible eyes pigments in Burning Black and Endless Chocolate - £6.99
Finally, these are the L'oreal Infallible eyes pigments, they are more like very creamy eye shadows but they are pressed pigments, you can use these as normal eye shadows all over the lid, but they're really pigmented and a little goes a long way. I definitely going to get more of these so if you have any recommendations I'd love to hear them.
All of these pigments have quite a lot of fall out so bare that in mind if you try any, I always make sure to hold a tissue under my eye while applying them or apply my foundation and concealer afterwards.
