The 5 Best Ways to Wear Crystal Makeup
Crystal makeup has become increasingly popular in recent years, as many people are drawn to the beauty and elegance of these ornate cosmetics. It can seem like crystal makeup is simple to use, but it can take some practice before you master the techniques needed to make your crystal makeup look its best. This article will teach you everything you need to know about wearing crystal makeup.
5 Best Ways to Wear Crystal Makeup
Here are some ways to get crystal Makeup.
1. On your face as a subtle highlight
This is a basic way to wear crystal makeup. You can either just apply it where the sun hits your face, or you can use a soft powder brush and sweep it in a subtle, circular motion on your cheekbones. This is also an excellent look for when you don’t want people paying attention to how you are wearing makeup but still want it to be noticeable and pretty. And because this is so low-key, it’s perfect for throwing on before work in the morning. The easiest way I’ve found to do this is with Pixi’s Brilliant Cream Eyeshadow in Silvered Lilac.
2. In Jewellery pieces
Jewellery pieces with crystals are an easy way to take your look from day to cold night. Simply add a necklace, ring, or earrings for an easy way of accessorizing. But the best crystal jewellery is unique and one-of-a-kind, which is why it can be tricky. Luckily, there are some helpful tips for adding crystals in the best way possible!
The first tip is to make sure that they’re not too big because they could overpower your features. Secondly, use hues like peach or yellow undertones because they’ll make the colour pop even more. Thirdly, you should wear them only if you have any pink undertones on your skin; otherwise, they will clash horribly. Lastly, don’t wear two tones next to each other unless you know how contrast works (that goes for clothes too).
3. As statement rings or bracelets
Try layering! If you want to give your eyes a pop of color but don’t feel like wearing anything on your face, reach for a crystal jewellery piece to layer over your outfit. It’s subtle, sparkly and looks especially nice when worn with black or navy.
Layer one piece with another. Not sure what to wear? Try stacking a statement ring on top of an arm party – they make great mix-and-match pieces that can be worn separately or together. Just remember stack from the smallest to the largest size so that you maintain balance. You can also try matching bracelets with rings to create two matching sets!
4. Inside a cocktail ring
Crystal makeup can be worn in a variety of ways, but one of the most fun ways is with a cocktail ring. These rings make an excellent accessory for festivals and summer parties because they catch the light and create a stunning glow, regardless of your skin tone. Plus, if you get sick of the outfit you are wearing at any point, you can always remove it for something new! The best ways to wear crystal makeup are below:
- Stack three small cocktail rings together on your thumb and index finger. Invert them so that the crystals hang off your fingers like earrings. Adjust them so that they hang down evenly (one over each knuckle).
- Slip both thumbs through two cocktail rings stacked together on each hand. Let them dangle over your fingers and adjust them until they’re evenly spaced across both hands.
- Add some bling to your collar by slipping a large cocktail ring onto a necklace chain or just around your neck (or under) like a choker.
5. In earrings
If you wear dangling earrings, know that your ears may start feeling heavy after a while. To avoid this, use the long dangling earrings with shorter ones on the other side of your face. It balances out the weight and makes it easier for you to wear them all day without discomfort.
Make sure they are made of light material, so they don’t feel heavy in your ears. The best type of material is wire because it’s flexible and lightweight as well as easy to shape into different shapes. You can also attach different chains or cords onto each earring which will give them some more weight, so they hang better around your neck but still be comfortable in your ears because they are attached together at the top.
Apply your makeup as you would normally. Instead of using a matte powder, use a loose pigment or finishing powder on top for more glow and less coverage. Add glittery touches in the evening but leave sparkles elsewhere; this will give you depth and dimension without looking like you rolled in fairy dust! Lightly dust a highlighter over your eyelids and cheekbones with some brushstrokes to create an ethereal look. Use darker eye shadow colours with iridescent tones that shine brilliantly under artificial light!
