We are speeding towards Christmas! As it edges toward mid-December I realize I have to start my shopping for gifts! I really need to get started! Anyone else procrastinating like I am or have you started your shopping?
There are a few upcoming events this week and I thought I’d share another festive look that I know I’ll wear to one of them. I love a smokey, shimmery eye and a bold lip for an evening look.
During this time of year, I find my Too Faced Gold Chocolate Bar Palette comes in handy because I can put together a variety of looks using the shimmery colours. It’s my favourite palette for coming up with evening style makeup. I put boxes around the colours I used below.
In the crease, I put in matte shades on the right and then layered a few different shimmers. I put the deeper shimmers closer to the outer lid and the brighter shimmers closer to the middle of the lid.
For the tiniest amount of sparkle, I added my Stila Glitter Shadow in Kitten Karma. It’s not a crazy amount but it adds just a little festive flair. I used my finger to apply a touch in the centre of my lid.
For the lips, I applied Rimmel London Stay Matte in Pink Bliss. It’s a berry/nude shade. I love red lipstick but don’t really think I can pull it off as well as others can, so I feel a lot safer wearing shades like this one because it’s bold and I think when paired with a shimmer lid it still gives a holiday vibe. I applied a slightly deeper liner around my lips just so that it would stand out a bit more.
I love a look like this very much. It’s festive and fun but still really sultry and perfect for an evening out.
How do you like wearing your makeup for an evening holiday event?
Lots of Love,
