I try not too get excited about Christmas too early. Generally I wait until December actually rolls around before going nuts, but seeing as Christmas party season is about to begin, I thought I’d start the excitement a day early by showing you guys a nice festive makeup. Drama, sparkle, a red lip… I’ve chucked it all in the mix because this is the one time of year you get to go hog-wild with no excuse needed.
I got my base out of the way (Diorstar BB Cream in Fair) so we could get right into the good stuff. I started by giving myself a winged liner with a nice medium level thickness. Normally I’d go for a thinner liner, but this time around I was going to be half covering it with the second liner anyways.
I then went in with the Nyx Aqua Luxe Liner in 24 Karat, which makes for the perfect golden, glittery Christmas touch. I traced slightly over top and above the black liner.
I took the same gold liner just under my eyes in the inner corner.
To add a little drama to the look, I took a bit of black eyeshadow on either a winged liner brush and created the thinnest line that I could under that gold liner.
Then need I even say this next bit… bum tons of mascara. It always makes a dramatic eye look come together.
Finally, it wouldn’t be Christmas without the red lip. I’ve went for Sephora’s Cream Lip Stain in 01 Always Red because it’s a beautiful matte, neutral red that will last like a mother trucker. If you want to make it through dinner with a red lip this is a mighty fine option. As always I just smoothed over the edges of my lips with a lip brush before the lip stain set. Done!
