When I wear this cardigan thing, I feel like Queen of the North. Jon Snow up in this b. It's from Target and it's so damn warm, long and cozy.
I mixed up the routine a bit by digging into my glitter drawer. I haven't worn glitter in the last couple years as much as I used to. But sometimes creative desire strikes. I let the makeup muse guide my hands. Or, whatever.
To match the subtle contrasting palette of the cardigan, I used a warm copper and gold base to make the sparkly turquoise elements really shine. I started by laying down the copper pigment (Rushmetal) all over the lid. After that I patted the Goldilux on top in the center of the lid to create a "halo effect". In the crease I shaded with the warm brown shadow, Brown Script, and it gives such a nice glow. My next move was to tap on the MAC Reflects Turquoise glitter on top of the gold base. I absolutely love MAC glitters and how they reflect the light particularly well. The use of contrasting colors (orange and blue) and textures (metallic, matte and glittery) is a method that creates intense vibrancy with the use of clashing.
I went for a lot of high shine in this look. Multiple shimmery products were used on the face, both in liquid and powder form. Some were mixed with the foundation. Others were brushed on top.
Also, I freaking love this nude gloss from Urban Decay. It's minty fresh and the slight color it imparts is sooo lovely.
