Holiday Look #3 - Christmas Morning

  Happy Holidays, everyone! For my final makeup look I wanted to go with something that looks a little more natural. It's like waking up on Christmas morning!! Obviously I'm wearing make up and not going au naturale, but that's the point of this look, AND this could be incorporated in everyday makeup as well. So enjoy! šŸ™‚

Holiday Look #2 - Party

  The second look to my holiday makeup inspired looks is a little more festive. I thought this one would be fun to do for a party, whether it be for Christmas or New Years, it's really classic and pretty and it involves gold and red! What more couldyou ask for!?? ;)
  I have also used a couple new products that I have not mentioned in any other post before so I thought now is the time!

Maybelline FitMe Foundation Matte+Poreless (120classic ivory)
Covergirl+Olay Concealor (710light)
ELF Undereye Concealer and Highlighter
Covergirl Advanced Radiance Pressed Powder (105ivory)
ELF Contouring Bronzer(used Real Techniques sculpting brush to apply)

Covergirl Brow and Eye Makers Eyebrow Pencil (midnight brown)
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil (630cashmere)(smeared over eyelid)
NYX Love in Paris Eye Shadow Palette (merci beaucoup- 2,3,5)*
NYX Matte Black Liner (bel02)**
Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes (blackest black)

Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner (057ravish)***
MAC Lipstick (retro matte, all fired up, A35)****

*I pressed the gold color on top of the creamy cashmere color to make the gold pop. I then added the other brown colors in the crease to define it.
**Smudged the eyeliner to make everything blend better and not look so harsh.
***I got this lip liner a LONG time ago. You may not be able to purchase it anymore. But any red lip liner will do.
****I know the whole point of my blog is to not use any overpriced makeup products. But I was given this lipstick for my birthday by one of my best friends and I REALLY wanted to showcase it. Also, any red matte lipstick will do.
