SHIMMER MADE EASY - 3 WAYS TO APPLY SHIMMER TO YOUR FACE

Shimmering in three places


Don't think you can shimmer? Think again.

Applied correctly, you can create a look with just one shimmery agent. All you have to do is use the same shimmer at three places on your face. The result is subtle and soft.

Here's how:

Using:

Maybelline Eyeshadow in Seashell

(It has a soft, peachy color with just a hint of shimmer.)


Step 1

Using your finger tip, sweep shadow all over eye lids.



Step 2

Dab shimmer on the apples of your cheeks.

Then blend with a makeup brush.




Step 3

Add shimmer to the tip of your upper and bottom lips.


Seal it with a layer of sheer to light lip gloss.




DONE!!




One shimmery shadow. Three ways.



How do you wear shimmer?

  2. I usually keep shimmer in one-two max areas on my face. I would constantly get afraid that I would end up looking like too much of a grease ball when I oil up!

    I love how you used it though!

  18. What a great post! This is so so helpful. I normally wear shimmer on my brows and along the top of my cheek bones. I've heard that highlighter in the bow of your lips makes them look bigger. I've never tried it though.

    This is a great look well done!!

  51. I love shimmery shadow!! I typically just wear it on my eyes, but I like shimmery lips, too. If I manage to get a bit of a tan on my cruise, I may try a little shimmer on my face, but right now, I'm so pale that I'd just look like a ghost! ;)
