If you love the glitter hair trend then you're in luck: There's officially a new take on the look, and it's all about the eyebrows. Kat Von D's glitter brow and cat eye combo is nothing short of pure genius.
Last year, we saw people dust shimmer on their armpits, sprinkle glitter on their roots, and even apply it to their lips for a bold Friday night look. Von D gave us a new glitter creation on Instagram, debuting a crisp ombré cat eye that goes from inky black to glittery red, and acts as the mirror twin to her eyebrow. While you might not see shimmery eyeliner every day, you definitely don't see matching eyebrows very often, making Von D's look pretty special. using the same technique.
But what's even more interesting is the way she pulled the look off: It was created with liquid lipstick from her own makeup line. "She used her Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Santa Sangre ($20) to fill in the razor sharp tails of her brow and cat eye (which were both otherwise black). Then, she carefully patted red glitter on top to create a Fall-forward ombré effect," PopSugar explained in an article.
Talk about ingenious. In order to pull it off at home, try using tape as a template to keep the process tidy and flawless. Place tape along the lines of your eyebrows and at the corners of your eyes, and after applying the lipstick and glitter, delicately pull it off to have razor-sharp lines.
