Makeover Monday: Sparkling Slate for City Nights – OCC Glitter ‘Slate’

Everything looks better with a little sparkle and glitter, just as long as you don’t overdo it.  This makeover Monday post features a smoky eye with a hint of sparkling slate glitter with the help of the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC) Glitter Slate’.  Slate is described as a “True grey, not silver glitter.”  To me, it reminds me of New York City streets at night, hence the title of this post “Sparkling Slate for City Nights.”

This smoky eye is not your traditional smoky eye, thanks to the OCC Glitter ‘Slate’.  The glitter adds just enough sparkle to make the look fun, flirty and sexy.  The look is pulled together with a nude lip using the OCC Lip Tar ‘Sebatstian’ paired with MAC Cosmetics Lip Pencil ‘Cork’.  I opted to go without lashes because we don’t want the look to go from glam to drag queen-ish.  Overall, I think the look came out perfectly, and the client loved it!
