Don't be alarmed by the amount of materials! I happen to have a ton of makeup and just used whatever I had to my advantage. You can use any colors you want. 

First, I applied the Nars foundation and set it with the Revlon powder then lined my eyebrows.

Next, I applied Nyx cream eye primer all over my lid. Taking the eye glitter pot, I carefully applied the glitter to the inner portion of my lids. Be very cautious when applying glitter. It can fall into your eyes and cause a lot of pain! Pat it down firmly to make sure it doesn't flake off Then taking Kat Von D's True Romance Palette I used Hyper Ballad (Pearlized Silver) mixed with Scandinavian (Pearlized Taupe) in the center of my lid. Using Ville (Pearlized Eggplant Purple) I blended it into the other two eyeshadows.

Finally, I took Kat Von D's Eyeshadow in On the Road and applied it to the outer-most corner of my lids and blended it into the middle. To bring back the 'sparkle' effect, I took the eye glitter pot and with a small amount, I lightly dusted over my whole lid. Using Makeup Forever Aqua Shadow and an angled eyeliner brush, I lined my eyes. Taking Urban Decay's Heavy Metal Eyeliner, I lined the inner corners of my eyes, then using Tara Tarantino's Sparklicity powder i dabbed the opal powder on top of the wet eyeliner for a multi-dimensional sparkle.

I then applied my false eyelashes and a coat of mascara. To get a soft natural glow, I used Andy Warhol for Nars Highlighting blush all over my face. Focusing on my temples, the hollows of my cheeks and my forehead.

Then taking Nars Blush in "Super Orgasm," I defined my cheeks. Sometimes the color of the blush is too bold, so I went back and re-applied the highlighting blush all over for a more muted effect.
In Picture 13, I drew a line down the bridge of my nose with Benefit's Watts Up Highlighter. This will help give my nose a defined look. Then taking a medium brown shadow, I shaded the sides of my nose and blended.
To finish off the look, add any accessories and you're good to go!

I hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial and have fun!
