Classic Holiday Glam | Pictorial

“Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.”

Classic Holiday Glam 

IMG_5143.PNGIn 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”.

Step One:

Apply an eye primer.

Using my finger, I dabbed Mac’s Paint Pot in “Painterly” all over my lids.

Step Two:

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.

Step Three:

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.

Step Four:

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.

Step Five:

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.

Step Six:

Contour.

While my translucent powder “bakes”, I lightly contoured my face with Maybelline’s Pressed Powder in the color “Coconut”.

Step Seven:

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!

Step Eight:

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!

Step Nine:

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.

Step Ten:

Pose for a selfie.
