Space Party Galaxy Makeup

Space Party Galaxy Makeup

Last night I went to a huge space themed party held by my university to celebrate the end of exams. I didn’t really know what to go as and I didn’t want to spent a lot of money on a crazy costume. All I did know that what I just wanted to take the opportunity to wear a lot of sequins and glitter!

I ordered a little black sequin dress of Ebay for £10 as my costume and then I was just going to do some really cool makeup to dress it up. I probably spent hours in total scrolling through pinterest and WeHeartIt for inspiration on space themed makeup. But in the end I combined a few different looks and this is what I came up with.

The makeup look I went for was a galaxy swirl/black hole around just my right eye. I started off with a white eyeshadow and did a white swirl under my eye to my cheekbone and then under my eyebrow to my nose. I then gradually darken the eyeshadow for the rest of the look from silver to grey and then to black. I made sure to really blend everything out so that the gradient looked smooth as it faded out. I then applied some Barry M glitter dust over the swirl, concentrating it on the white eyeshadow. Finally I used a Collection silver liquid liner and a glitter liner to draw on a few stars of all different sizes.

For my left eye I just did a bit of a smoky eye in similar colour with the black and silver. I also decided to wear some pretty long false lashes from Collection for about £3. I don’t often wear fake lashes but these ones are pretty simple to put on and I love how they look on a night out.

On my nails I wore the silver Rimmel Space Dust which I thought was pretty fitting and kept with my glittery theme.
