Tutorial: Festival Make Up - No Cultural Appropriation - Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette Eye Look & Glossy Eyelids

Oh my, is that a bandwagon? Oh hey, lemme just jump on that real quick! So glossy eyelids are not new in the beauty world. The cool oil slick eyelids that look super dewy and wet - like your dog has just licked your eyelid but with some glamour. You've probably seen this look all over instagram and on the runways from all the fashion weeks but it's usually just your average eye look with a clear eye gloss over the top. Eye glosses are hard to come by and if you do come by them they're pretty damn pricey.

Glossy lids would be a really easy, simple and cool eye look to do for a music festival - the colour choices are endless!

I decided to combine this post and do a quick tutorial on the Urban Decay Full Spectrum palette too. If you haven't caught up on my review and swatches of the palette you can read it here! I chose to use the yellow shades and did a really easy and quick eye look.

I used the shade Calevera in the crease and Goldmine on the lid with Jones lightly dusted on the outer V. I wanted it to remain nice and bright so didn't add any dark colours. A super easy and bright eye look which would great alone with winged liner and a tonne of mascara!

I added some nice thick lashes and did a light contour and light blush.

I went for a peach toned nude lip colour as I wanted the eyes to be the focal point of the look. Next, onto the gloss!

I used an Illamasqua clear lip gloss with blue irridescent sparkle - I think the blue sparkle really complimented the yellow and I loved this look! You could use just a plain clear gloss or use a coloured gloss to really amp up the look.

It was super fun to do and really easy - glossy lids are wholly impractical so don't expect this to last a huge amount of time on your eyes but it's a fun and easy look to do!

Some bonus iPhone selfies to really catch that sparkly gloss!

Have you tried glossy lids before? Are you yay or nay this bandwagon trend?
