Hyped up neutral with glitter (Ben Nye Sparklers) FOTD

One day while in Eastern Market, I decided to stop by the theater store to see what new Ben Nye was in stock... new to me, I found some cool black and multi glitter-- Ben Nye Sparklers and liquid glue! Soon after I had an opportunity to play in my makeup and make use of the glitter (not likely most times).
Check out my pics! I really liked this FOTD.. so my style! Sorry to those of you that already saw these on FB.

Also, this was a day that I left my regular, old faithfuls in my makeup bag at work. Armed with just my personal brush set, mascara and liquid liner, I had to rely on my kit. *groans*




FACE
Revlon ColorStay in Rich Tan mixed with a bit of Face Atelier's Zero +
MAC Studio Scuplt in NC40 under my eyes as concealer and highlight
Ben Nye loose powder in Fair to set concealer, topaz to set face and Ebony (?) to contour

EYES
L'Oreal Hip Paint in Witty? to base
A bit of NYX Milk shadow stick on my lid
MAC Gesso in inner corners
MAC Bisque on lid
MAC Texture and Swiss Chocolate in my crease
MAC Carbon in the outer v
Revlon liquid liner
Milani Color Brillance Pencil in Aqua on bottom lid
Ben Nye Sparklers in the outer v
Ardell Wispies lashes
MAC Zoomlash mascara

BROWS

Victoria Secret concealer to sculpt/highlight underneath the brow

CHEEKS
MAC Breezy blush

LIPS

Yes! I was still able to make do without my old faithfuls!

OK, Kia i need a tutorial on how you apply your eyeliner. It is always so pretty. Pretty look and was the theater store fully stocked? I hate going in there sometime b/c they are out of everything I want lol

I was just thinking about buying these glitters but I wasn't sure how they would turn out. You have just convinced me : ) Pretty look as usual

omg blogger wants me to leave stat! i keep trying to reply to comments and getting kicked out...

@ nikkia: i will do an updated tut to the one that's currently in the left side bar. of course backstage isn't stocked =( still glad i can walk in and see some products!

@ danielle87: get them! they are easy on the wallet too!

@ tysh: according to kryolan (they sell BN on their site too) it's a cosmetic grade glitter and safe for the face and eye area.

@ what i wore tip to toe: the glitter doesn't stick too well on its own. THANKS!
