Beauty Inspiration: Sparkly Eyes

I tend to save my sparkly and shimmery eye shadows and liners for the holidays, but lately I've been trying to break out of my regular beauty routine and add a little sparkle no matter what time of year it is! I personally stick to gold and pink hued shimmer, but I love how many different color options are out there to achieve a sparkly eyed look. I've been adding a golden line above my black cat eye on weekend nights out and wearing pink shimmery shadow during the day.

Today I'm sharing some inspiration photos, as well as a shopping list to get the look for yourself! What do you think of adding some sparkle to your eye makeup?

MAC liquid liner - $19.50. {I have this in gold and love it!}
YSL chromatic eye shadow - $55 {for those who want shimmery color, this is a beautiful palette}
Lit Cosmetics glitter kit - $20 {includes loose silver glitter and an adhesive base}
bareMinerals eye color - $14. {they have a ton of sparkly and shimmery colors - this one is called 'good fortune.}
Urban Decay 'Heavy Metal' glitter liner - $19. {lots of colors to choose from!}
Bobbi Brown sparkle eyeshadow - $32. {I love this pretty lilac color, but there are 9 others if this one isn't your cup of tea! this is my favorite brand of eyeshadow.}
L'Oreal Paris Infallible eyeshadow - $8 {the color shown is 'iced latte' and they offer many more bright and pigmented colors}
Sephora jumbo liner - $14 {a thick long wearing liner that comes in various shimmer and glitter shades}


  1. So pretty for a night out! I realized I have a lot of "going out" makeup, yet I only go out once a week or so.

  2. So pretty! I love the thicker glitter liner look. Marc Jacobs has amazing eye shadows that are really pigmented, you should check those out.
