Glossy Eye Make-up

I fancied doing some creative make-up this week, so I thought I'd try a glossy colourful eye. I'd done a greasy, black look before for a photoshoot, but this is quite a different look.

I'm quite pleased with how it looks, and would love to try this out with a decent photographer!

I used my own special blend of 'eye gloss', which basically consists of Vaseline and clear lip gloss. I applied that over Sugarpill Dollipop and Hi-Fi Cosmetics Live Large. Under the eye is Sugarpill Poison Plum, and Barry M Dazzle Dust in 66 (matt black).

The key to the glossy coloured eye, if you're wanting it to look neat, and not really grungy, is to apply very carefully, taking care not to drag the eyeshadow. I used a cotton bud to pat and roll the gloss over the eye lid.

Let me know what you think!


  1. Looks ace! I do love a glossy eye! Keen to play with the MAC eye glosses coming out later this year..not expecting a lomg wearing formula, lol, but still could be fun.

    1. I don't think I'll bother with them, seeing as I can just put a clear gloss over any eyeshadow!

  2. This looks gorgeous! I love the look of a glossy eye but within a few minutes it always just melts off my face :(
