Are you one of those people who grew up watching and reading the Twilight series and were a true blue #TeamEdward fan? Then listen up, because this new make-up trend is going to be your new favourite. Remember when Edward tries to expose himself as a vampire to get himself killed, and as he steps into the sun he starts sparkling like a human disco ball? Well, beauty fans have now made it a trend.

Yup, TikTok user and beauty video creator, August (@imonaugust) shared a super easy and effective technique that will make you look just like a Cullen. Plus, this beauty technique is great if you’re planning to dress up as any of the Cullen family members this Halloween.

You Will Need:

  • Liquid Foundation
  • Liquid Glitter Pigment/Eyeshadow
  • Powder Glitter Pigment/Eyeshadow


Step 1: Mix your favourite liquid foundation with a liquid glitter pigment on the back of your palm and apply it on your face. Blend it out with a foundation brush until your base looks even and slightly shimmery.

Step 2: Next, take some powder glitter and tap it on the high points of your face, such as your cheekbones, brow bones, and on the bridge of your nose.

Optional: If you want to embody the true vampire look, you can add some much needed reds to the face like under the eyes and on your lips.

Pro Tip: Make sure you opt for silver or champagne coloured glitter since they look natural against your skin colour. After you’re done applying the glitter base and glitter powder, you can even add some coloured glitter to add a little bit of whimsy to your look.
