♕ Make Up Look ~ Perseids ♕

I have a special, personal tradition to "celebrate" the Perseids meteor shower (also known as the tears of Saint Lawrence) on August 10th: I like to wear dark blue smokey eyes (as dark as the night sky), and I've done this for the last four years or so. In fact, I have another Perseids makeup look that dates back on August 2014! (You can see it here, I was still blogging in Italian back then though)
I never posted 2015 and 2016 versions (because they were pretty simple), but this year I came up with something different and unique - so I had to share it with you :D

The main idea behind this look was to use the star shaped glitters (Bey) by Glitter Palace - no need to explain why they were so fitting for the occasion XD Although I changed my plans on where to place the stars midway, I wanted them to be the main focus of this look - which is, quite honestly, pretty simple.

I'm SO happy with how this look turned out - I had the idea of the starred sky and the shooting star when I was almost done. At the beginning my plan was to use the stars on my inner corners, but then I thought I could kind of recreate the night sky with them... And I also  realized I could create a falling star using the little diamonds/rhombuses Bey comes with. A very simple idea that gave this look its strong impact *___*

After priming my lids I applied a black eyepencil all over the lids (minus the centre) using Feline by MAC Cosmetics; done that, I applied Blue Velvet* eyeshadow by NABLA Cosmetics all over the lids (centre included this time). Using my ring finder, I dabbed Virgin Island* by NABLA right on the centre of the lid to create a strong, sparkling highlight.
On the crease and outer corner areas I used two eyeshadows by Makeup Geek Cosmetics: I applied Boo Berry as main shade to add depth, and Neptune as transition colour to blend it out - I did the same on the lower lid too. On my inner corners I applied Atom (just as base because I was going to apply some gold glitters right after), on my browbone I applied Antique White and I defined my lower lashline using Nocturne (all shadows by NABLA Cosmetics).

Before moving on to the glitters application, I decided to complete the look first with eyeliner, eyepencil and so on. At this point I already had the idea for the glitter pattern, so I decided to go for a pretty basic winged line: I used the Epic Ink Liner  in Black by NYX Cosmetics and I drew the line making it quite thick on the outer part. Then I applied Feline on my waterlines, false lashes and mascara.
Now that I was done, I applied the glitters. First of all, I applied Brassic pressed glitters by GlitterTubes on my inner corners; then I took Bey loose glitters by Glitter Palace and patiently started to place the stars on my crease and brow bone area. Once I was happy with the pattern I applied one star on my upper lid and created the tail using the teeny tiny rhombuses. Done that, I was done for real! :D
