Hey guys! I ran a poll on Twitter to see what Christmas look y’all wanted done this year…. and shockingly (not), glam won! If you want to have your say in future posts, please go to @beautybreakbets and click that follow button! We have already hit over 90 followers there and I am so thankful!!
For the sake of the post, I decided I would start with all of my face makeup and eyebrows done, so we could just focus on the eyes…
I just wanted to insert this picture to show you guys what shades I will be using from the Holiday Palette, for those of you who don’t want to continue reading!
First things first, I went in with Makeup Geek Beaches and Cream and Creme Brulee for my transition shade. Then, I used a fluffy Estee Lauder blending brush and went in with the shade Chestnut in my crease and outer corner. It is such a beautiful shadow that has found it’s way into my top favorite shadows! Next, I took my Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadow Brush and applied the shade Frosty, which is that silvery color, all over my lid. I did end up doing a second layer using eyedrops to make it just a tad more intense… You could probably get away without it since it does have a ton of pigment, but why not be extra at Christmas?!
After I applied the silver on my lid, I decided that it needed a darker color on the outer corner, because it just wasn’t popping like I wanted it to… So, I added this beautiful deep matte purple, Silent Night, and blended it into my outer corner and crease! I, personally, wanted to stay in the purple family, but a good black could be so awesome as well! (The first time I did this look was actually with Makeup Geek Corrupt instead. Follow this link to find it!)
I also put a little bit of Makeup Geek Shimma Shimma to the corner of my eye and under the brow bone!
From there, I used my Maybelline Blackest Black Gel Liner to add a small wing.
After that, I curled my lashes and applied the Urban Decay Subversion Lash Primer and then the Perversion Mascara!
To top off the look, I applied my Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in Bow and Arrow! I absolutely love, love, LOVE this lip color– it is so great for winter/fall!
And here is the finished look! I am so happy with the way it came out. It doesn’t show up as great in this picture- stupid iPhone… It was so much more vibrant in real life!
I hope you guys enjoyed this Christmas tutorial and that it sparked some inspiration for your festivities!
