Nothing says holiday glamour like glitter, and nothing says dangerously feminine like peekaboo black glitter.
So of course I had to get my hands on the MAC Nocturnals Pigments and Glitter 2013 Holiday Collection in Black and Gold.
Once the set of 5 minis arrived, I called Miss Melanie over to play.
I quickly created a fresh and pretty canvas for my girl by popping on a healthy dose of liquid highlighter and creamy contour plus a nude lip and some brow.
Then we sprinkled on the black magic.
Truth be told, these pics of the glitter on Melanie don’t even fully do it justice. It caught the light in such a beautiful and unexpected way.
To apply, I carefully patted the loose glitter over a soft wash of black that we used a base shade on the lid from lashline to crease only. The effect was as dramatic as desired. Every time Melanie blinked or peered down, it was mesmerizing.
Of course once she saw herself all dolled up, she needed somewhere to go. So she sent out a few texts and had evening plans in no time.
Because really – no use in having magic if you can’t put on a spell ;)
