I thought I'd play about with Christmassy colours, so I chose to use gold green & red for this look.. alternatively I guess it could be used to represent flag colours for either one of these countries with the same colours!: click here!
Here's the products used for this look:
> Bare Minerals foundation - medium beige
> Manly palette
> UD 24/7 eyeliner in "covet" & "zero"
> Dior Show mascara (forgot to add to pic!)
> MAC select moisturecover concealer in NC35
> Clinique blusher in "sunset glow"
> Natural Collection lipstick in "crimson"
> Barry M lip gloss wand in "cherry"
For this look I used all the shimmery colours.. festive looks have to have some shine to them, whether glitter or shimmer! I opted for shimmer as the glitter was going to be on the lips. I started by buffing on Bare Minerals foundation onto my face in Medium Beige.
For the eyes, first I started by applying a golden yellow from the Manly palette to the inner corner of the eyes as well as under the brows, followed by a shimmery green to the middle and end of the eyelid (using the MO eye shading brush) and blending the golden yellow with the green. I then used the No 7 blend & contour brush to add a little bit of shimmery red above the outer corner of the eyes, winging it out a little, and blending upwards into the gold underneath the eyebrows. I added gold to the rest of the eye area, blending into the green and reds, to make it less harsh. For the lower lashline I used a thin wet brush to add the golden eyeshadow colour in an upwards stroke along the lashline, followed by UD Covet eyeliner on the lower waterline. For the top liner I used Covet again, with Zero on top, for a dark green/black liner. After applying under eye concealer, I used Dior Show mascara on top and bottom lashes.
For the cheeks I used Clinique Sunset Glow, and for the lips I used Natural Collection lipstick in Crimson, followed by Barry M's glittery red lip gloss - Cherry. Unfortunately the glitter didn't show up much in the pictures, but I assure you, its lovely and sparkly to add to your lips for a festive look!
Hope you like it!
