Crescent moon for beginners
One of the main questions I get when at work is: “how do I create your glitter looks?”. It came to my attention, there isn’t many tutorials on how to create simple these glitter looks. I decided to show you how I create the crescent moon glitter look – for those of you who may be struggling.
I recommend using a small brush, if you are a beginner, this will help you get those perfect defined edges. For this tutorial I use the Zoeva 322 brow brush, as it has a nice sharp edge, and its small enough for me to control the glitter easily. It takes a little longer to do, but is much easier for someone who has never applied glitter.
First apply a thin layer of your glitter glue in the space between the end of your brow to your hairline. I’m using The Gypsy Shrine peel off glitter glue – which is super easy to use!
Tap on your first chunky glitter using a small brush. I’m using Unicorn Dreams glitter, The Gypsy Shrine.
Apply a small amount of glue to the edges to start defining your moon shape. Add you second glitter to the edges of the first glitter, to map out the start of your crescent moon. I’m using Festival Face, Iridescent Flakes.
Now apply glue above your brow, pointing the tip of the arch to the front of your brow.
Once again, using your second glitter, tap on the glitter – forming the shape of half the crescent.
Bring your glue down to start on the lower part of your crescent moon. Try and keep it the same size and shape of the top part of your moon.
Fill this area to roughly the same size as the top half, slowing creating your half moon.
Apply a fine glitter to the edges using a bit of your glitter glue, making the edges really defined. I’m using Stargazer’s pink glitter.
Retouch around the edges and in the centre with your glitters – till you feel the shape is perfect. This also helps blend all the glitters together seamlessly.
Creating a crescent moon shape is harder than it looks, which some of you may have found out trying to create your own. I even struggled to get it perfect the first time. It just takes a bit of practice! Hopefully with these tips and explanations you will find it much easier to apply your glitter.
