One Product, Two Looks: Shimmer Brick

What happens when you give two talented makeup artists with very different skintones the challenge of creating one look using glominerals Shimmer Brick in luster? You get two completely stunning looks! glo National Educators, Ami and Janeena, took on our One Product, Two Looks challenge and are happy to share their secrets.


“What I love about the Shimmer Brick in luster is its versatility. It can be used on eyes, cheeks and lips- the combinations are truly endless,” says Janeena.  “In addition to being a great multitasker, its versatility extends to its ability to look stunning on all skin tones,” adds Ami.  For example, Janeena wears Pressed Base in honey light while Ami is a natural fair (our lightest shade!) yet both used the Shimmer Brick in luster to play up their features.

Janeena first used the highlight shade from the Brow Kit as a base by applying it to her whole lid. Then, using the Shimmer Brick in luster she placed the bronze color in her crease. Next, she used the three shimmery shades to build up color on her whole lid, blending the colors into the crease and inner corners of her eyes.  She then used the lightest color as a highlighter down the center of her nose, cupids bow, chin and center of her forehead. For her lips, she first applied Precise Micro Lipliner in delilah, followed by Lipstick in natural. Then she added the gold shimmer from the Shimmer Brick to her lips and topped it with Cream Blush in guava.

For Ami’s look, she first applied Cream Eyeliner in espresso then applied the purple/brownish color from the Shimmer Brick on top. The bronze color was then applied to the crease and the gold shade under her browbone. For her cheeks, she used the Texture Brush to swirl all of the colors together which created a dewy glow. Lastly, she applied the pink shade on top of the Lip Duo in pink.
