This beauty trend is one that has slipped under the radar. Having admired this look for months now, I finally plucked up the courage to try it, and the results couldn’t have been more pleasing. Strutted down the Givenchy catwalk at the S/S 2012 Fashion Weeks, models were pictured with striking half-circle metallic sequins on their upper and lower eyelids. Shortly after, über model Gisele Bundchen was spotted sporting the look.
So, in the last few days of summer, why not glam up a casual outfit on a night out, by trying this cute DIY sequin dotted make-up effect yourself?
Testing it out is simple and enjoyable. Start with purchasing some different coloured sequins to experiment with. Carefully cut your sequins into semi-circles. Next, dab some skin sensitive face glue on to each sequin and place each half on to your upper and lower eyelid – not limiting yourself with the number of sequins or colours you want to use. When all sequins are on, keep your eyes closed for 2 to 3 minutes to ensure that the face glue dries up and all sequins stay in place. Once dry, you’re ready to head out and make an impression.
