You don't have to be going to a holiday party or gathering to get glammed up and festive for the season. My very favorite way to infuse a bit of glam is a killer red lip. But for this makeup look, I added metallic eye shadow and doll-like lashes to look a bit more polished than just any other day.
Face: I started this look with my favorite Smashbox primer, wiping a thin layer all over my clean skin. Next, I used my Real Techniques foundation brush to swipe on a thin layer of Revlon Photoready Airbrush Effect foundation in #003 -Shell. This liquid makeup has been one of my favorites for a long time - it never fails me. When the liquid makeup is still slightly damp, I brush on some loose powder to set it. I used Bare Minerals loose powder in Fairly Light. Lastly, I apply a bit of my favorite bronzer (IT Cosmetics) on my cheekbones.
Eyes: For this metallic look, I used the Lorac Pro Metal Eyeshadow Palette, which is new to me. I really loved all the neutral metal shades. I used the colors Graphite, Guilded and a little bit of Onyx on the outer corners for this specific look. I don't usually wear fake lashes, except for my wedding day or special occasions, so it was fun to pick out a pair that enhanced the lashes I already have without being overkill. I chose this pair since they are "lash accents," not the full length of my eye, and they just enhance the outer corners. Lastly, I created a cat-eye with my 24/7 Liquid Liner from Urban Decay. This stuff is a true black and is so easy to apply, especially if the cat-eye shape is a challenge for you.
Lips: For the final touches, I used Smashbox Fireball on my lips to get the perfect, festive pop of red. This lipstick stays on, has a beautiful matte sheen and the color is a great holiday shade.
To get your makeup to last you all day or all night (or both!) I swear by the Urban Decay Deslick Makeup Setting Spray. This stuff is a life-changer! You can find all of these products (and get lost for hours) in any Ulta Beauty store.
