“Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.”
Classic Holiday Glam
In my opinion, you can never go wrong with a classic red lip – especially when doing holiday makeup! I decided to create a simple yet glamorous holiday look with a red lipstick, and of course … glitter. I really love how my makeup turned out, and I hope you all do too. Please read on if you’d like to see how I got this look!
I have on Maybelline’s Fit me Matte + Poreless Foundation in the shades “Warm Honey” & “Sun Beige”.
Apply an eye primer.
Using my finger, I dabbed Mac’s Paint Pot in “Painterly” all over my lids.
Apply shadow to your lid.
All of the shadows that I used for this look were from the Lorac Mega Pro 2 palette. This was a limited edition palette, so I will do my best to describe the color of each shadow that I used!
First, I applied the color “Chiffon”, a semi-opaque warmed up pink shadow all over my lid.
Over top of Chiffon, I combined the colors “Prosecco” and “Peony” to my lid. Prosecco is a metallic beige shadow, and Peony is a peachy orange shade with warm undertones.
Apply shadow to your crease.
For my crease, I used the color “Burlap”, a matte medium-dark brown shade, combined with the color “Saddle”, a dark brown matte shadow.
Apply liner, mascara, and lashes (optional).
For eyeliner, I used NYX’s Black Gel liner + their Matte liquid liner. I applied one coat of Revlon’s grow luscious mascara to my lashes, along with Red Cherry “WSPY” lashes. I didn’t use a super dramatic false lash for this look, as I wanted the main focus to be on my lips and lower lash line.
Apply and set concelaer.
In an upside down triangle shape, I applied NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in the color “Custard” under my eyes. I used a damp beauty blender to blend this out.
To set my concealer, I used Laura Mercier’s translucent powder. I like to apply this with a makeup sponge.
While my translucent powder “bakes”, I lightly contoured my face with Maybelline’s Pressed Powder in the color “Coconut”.
Apply pigment/glitter to lower lash line.
After brushing off the excess translucent powder, I wet a small synthetic makeup brush with MAC Fix +, and started applying pigment to my lower lash line. At first I went in with the pigments “Blonde’s Gold” and “Bronze” from Mac’s new Irresistibly Charming Collection.
I decided that the MAC pigments weren’t giving my eye the glittery effect that I wanted, so I applied some gold glitter from NYX over top of them.
To complete my eye look, I applied mascara to my bottom lashes, and a white eyeliner to my waterline!
Apply lip liner and lipstick.
I first lined my lips with a NYX’s waterproof liner in the color “Red”.
To give my lips more definition, I applied “Burgundy” lip liner from MAC.
For my lip color, I used Jeffree Star’s velour liquid lipstick in the color “Hoe Hoe Hoe”, a limited edition metallic red shade. I am so obsessed with this color, and I hope he re-releases it so you guys can get your hands on it too!
Apply highlight and blush.
I highlighted my face using a fan brush and the two highlight shades in the “light to medium” Anastasia contour kit. For blush, I used Milani’s “Romantic Rose”.
To set my face makeup, I used my Rimmel Stay Matte powder.
