Hey there, I’m so glad you’re here!
Seeing as it’s Christmastime, aka my fav time of year, I thought it was the perfect time to launch my blog and show you one of my favorite looks from this past season. It’s super festive because of the bright red and sparkles, not to mention, it’s easy to achieve. Perfect for the whirlwind of holiday parties and events you’re bound to attend!
For this look, I started out with Maybelline ® Healthy Skin Liquid foundation in Shade 40 Nude for the base and contoured with my fav cream kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills.
Earlier this year, I ordered the 35R- ‘Ready, Set, Gold’ palette from Morphe Brushes and it’s quickly become my go-to for almost all my standout eye looks. There’s 35 beautiful shades ranging from pale brown, to bronze, to rosy gold. I mixed three shades to get this eyeshadow look, resulting in a rich, bronzy color that pairs super well with crimson red lips.
A classic winged eyeliner look can be a pesky one to nail down. The Sephora collection liquid liner glides on amazingly and has quickly become one of my favorites. It even comes in waterproof and the price is unbeatable.
Because my natural lashes are pretty full to begin with, normally I can get away with layering two mascaras and avoid the hassle of fake lashes. For this look I layered Maybelline’s iconic Great Lash mascara at the base (you know, the pink and green kind everyone’s mother has stashed in her makeup cabinet) and Urban Decay Perversion over top. I have a tube of each on hand at all times!
I used cream lip stain from Sephora in Rouge Velouté, which stays in place really well. Another product I love is L’Oréal’s Color Riche Exclusive Red Collection in shade ‘Blake.’ I always use this when I want a dramatic pop of color to take my makeup look to the next level.
This shimmery look wouldn’t be complete without a subtle highlighter to pull it all together. For this look, I used Maybelline ® Face Studio Master Strobe illuminating highlight in Light Iridescent.
