How to: Jason Wu’s rose-gold glitter eye make-up
The glitter: Using a damp brush (dipping the brush in water and then diping it in glitter, prevents the product from falling onto the rest of the face) apply a rose-gold glitter on the center of the eye.
Tips: You can clean up the excess using a bit of tape, and you can also hold a tissue below the eye when applying the makeup, to minimize dispersion. Also, you can skip adding sparkles on the brow bone and corners of the eyes, where they may look too intense.
