Summer 2022 is all about making a statement so how about holding your cheeks high (on shine) with a little glitter-highlighter magic? We're ringing in the Unleashia Glitterpedia Eye Palette in No3 All of Coral Pink to take our daytime makeup look to the next level. Apart from using it as your eyeshadow palette, you can use it as your glitter-highlighter compact to bring your cheeks to life. Pro tip: add a dash of coral from the gorgeous 9-pan palette on the cheeks to pass for blush and pile on with some champagne sparkles to tie the whole look together! We promise it looks even flashier in glitter formulations!

Winged Shimmer Eyeliner

We love a winged-eyeliner look with a twist! Add a holographic feel to it by using a colored-eyeliner to draw a cut crease shape in the lid's crease, and top it off by pressing a glitter pigment on top, Your glitter can be whatever you like—whether it's fine particles, chunkier shimmering pieces, or a lightly infused gel that sparkles and shines. This summer we like to channel our inner celestial goddess with the help of the Unleashia Pretty Easy Glitter Stick in shade N6 Wee Hours and a coat of the Black Rouge Pearlvely I Glitter in shade G04 Starry Galaxy to make our eyes pop!
