So the Christmas season is officially over and New Years is fast approaching. Eep! What did you guys all get up to for Christmas?
I had to work on Christmas eve (which was brutal :p), but I really liked my festive makeup look so I thought I’d share it with you all!
From top L to bottom R: BH Cosmetics 120 palette 1st edition, MAC Matchmaster foundation in NC15, MAC Mineralize blush in Dainty, Naked Cosmetics pigment in #IV-05 (the green duochrome from the Ivory set), Bobbi Brown corrector in Light bisque, LORAC Behind the scenes eye primer, e.l.f HD Under eye setting powder, NYX Plush red lip liner, Rimmel Provocalips in Kiss me you fool, ABH Dipbrow pomade in Medium brown, MAC Painterly paint pot, Maybelline The falsies black drama, Benefit Gimme brow in light/medium. I also used MAC studio finish concealer, IT Cosmetics bye bye under eye, Ben Nye Cameo luxury powder, Smashbox Photo Finish primer, Skindinavia bridal makeup setting spray, Hurraw lip balm in Vanilla bean, NYX jumbo eye pencil in Milk, MUG Creme brulee, Latte & Shimma shimma eyeshadows, Covergirl clump crusher waterproof, NP Set liquid eyeliner (not pictured).
For this look, I first applied foundation & concealer to my lid area before applying powder & my primers. I then applied tape in line with my lower lashline to the end of my brow. I then buffed Makeup Geek Creme brulee & Latte through the crease to help with blending later. Next I applied the shimmery mid toned green (4th from right in the picture) to the lid and blended the edges slightly. I wanted the center of the lid to pop so I applied a light shimmery green from the palette (from the other half of the palette) to the center of my lids and then applied Naked Cosmetics pigment in #IV-05 over the top. To deepen the look I then went in with the matte black shade and applied that to my outer corners and blended it thoroughly to avoid harsh lines. I applied the same green from the lid to the inner half of my lower lashline & the matte black to the outer half & blended the two in the middle. I then applied Shimma shimma to my browbone, applied black liquid liner to the top lashline, removed the tape & applied Naked Cosmetics pigment in #IV-05 to my inner corners on top of NYX jumbo pencil in Milk. To finish the look I applied mascara to my upper & lower lashes. You can also intensify the look by lining the tightline & waterline with black eyeliner if you wish :).
Viola, the look is complete! What do you think of this festive look? I absolutely love using green eyeshadow & think I might do a few more green looks. What do you guys think?
PS. Stay tuned to the blog as tomorrow I have a New Years Eve look coming for you!
