Saturday Night Sparkle

There's something about Saturday night partying I enjoy more than sipping cocktails, dancing my heels off and meeting old - and new - friends - getting ready! And I'm sure a lot of You ladies will agree, it's the picking an outfit and a MU look to match, planning ahead from Monday, that adds all the excitement.
So this is what I wore last night when going for drinks with a friend and one key product I'm absolutely in love with. I know it's been around for a while and I picked it up at IMATS but never really got the chance to test it till now - it's Illamasqua Liquid Metal in Phenomena!
It's like no other product, a cream shadow that actually feels like liquid when blending, very light and sheer yet provides amazing coverage. Incredibly rich with pigment and shimmery particles, a must have when You want some sparkle without going too glitter-crazy!
It does not crease a lot but here's a little trick to make it last all night:
  • Over an eyeshadow primer, dab a thin layer of the Liquid Metal and blend slightly outwards
  • Apply a sheer layer of a matching eyeshadow - I used the silvery shade from the Elizabeth Arden Color Intrigue Eyeshadow Quad in Blue Breeze - just dab it accross the lid with Your finger as You don't want too much coverage, it's more about the powder-like layer to set the product in place
  • As the cream eyeshadow is very sparkly and sheer, the eyeshadow might take a bit of the mirror-like sparkle away so dab a thin layer over the eyeshadow again. This way, the powder and the layering will keep the product in place yet You will still have the amazing effect. 
So You have a layer of Liquid Metal, eyeshadow and Liquid Metal again!

P.s. As You can notice, the pictures are much clearer and the detail is more visible, as I'm the proud owner of a brand new camera! Yay! 

What is Your must-have Saturday night product?
Lots of love,
S
