Christmas Glam • Kylie Edition | 2016

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…

Primer: Kat Von D Lock-It Hydrating Primer. Foundation: IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream in the shade fairConcealer: Tarte Shape Tape Concealer. Setting powder: Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. Brows: ABH Brow Wiz and Clear Brow Gel. Bronzer: Too Faced Chocolate Soleil in Medium/dark. Blush: Amy Head Fresh & Lovely. Highlight: Becca Opal.

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!fullsizeoutput_3012Next, 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!

Mallory’s Semiformal Look!

Hey y’all! This is a very exciting post for me because it’s my first makeup tutorial, and it was the first time I did someone else’s makeup! YAY!! The beautiful young lady in the picture below is my best friend and Big, Mallory. I was fortunate enough to do her makeup for the Phi Lamb Semiformal last Friday. I had an absolute blast and wanted to share! I really hope you all enjoy! Since Mallory and I do not have the same skin type or color, I decided to use a mixture of her products and mine. I used her foundation, bronzer, and Naked palette. The rest are from my collection.

After applying moisturizer and some of her Mary Kay Eye Primer, I did her eyeshadow first to prevent any fallout from ruining the rest of her face.

I started out using the Naked 2 palette with the shade Bootycall on her lid and in the crease, then I blended Tease in the outer corner to middle of her lid and crease, and Suspect on the outer corner. I wanted to pull in a little bit of purple to make her eyes pop, so I blended in Estée Lauder Provocative Plum into the outer corner and crease. After applying the amount of purple I wanted, I went back to the Naked 2 palette and used Verve in the inner corner and under the brows to finish the shadow.

I then used Amy Head Creme Liner in Pearl in a pretty dramatic wing. I finished her eyes with two coats of Maybelline Turbo Volum’ Express mascara in very black!

Since her eyebrows are basically perfect and don’t need to be filled in, I went over them with Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel to keep them in place.  After doing her eyes, I applied her Mary Kay luminous-wear liquid foundation. I put a dab of product on her forehead, nose, under her eyes, cheeks, and chin and blended it out over the rest of her face to create a flawless finish.

Then, I put Amy Head Highlite Powder under her eyes to set her under eye area.

After that, I used Mary Kay mineral powder foundation as a bronzer/contour, making a 3 on both sides of her face. Then I applied a light amount of NARS blush to the apples of the cheeks, blending upward to the top of her cheeks.

Then, I used my favorite highlight, Becca + Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop, on the apples of the cheeks, middle of her forehead, down the nose, her Cupid’s bow, and chin!

After that, I took an Amy Head powder brush and lightly swept it over her face, avoiding her eyes, to create a smoother finish.

Mallory decided on this deep lip so we used Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick in Iris! Which definitely makes the look. Products Used:

  • Estée Lauder Resilience Lift moisturizer.
  • Mary Kay luminous-wear liquid foundation in the shade Beige 5.
  • Mary Kay mineral powder foundation in Beige 1.5. (Used as bronzer)
  • NARS Super Orgasm blush.
  • Becca + Jaclyn Hill highlight Champagne Pop.
  • Amy Head Highlite Powder in Gold Lustre.
  • Urban Decay Naked 2 pallet.
  • Estée Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow in Provocative Plum.
  • Amy Head Creme Liner in Pearl.
  • Maybelline Turbo Volum’ Express mascara.
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel
  • Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick in Iris.
