My Holiday Makeup Look!

I had two Christmas parties on the same day, and this is the look I chose for the occasion.  It's a classic red lip and winged liner, with a pop of gold on the lids.  It was quite simple to create, and I was happy with the final result.  Here is a list of the products I used.....

Face Products

Pixi Flawless Beauty Primer

Mac Pro Long Wear Foundation - NW25

Mac Pro Long Wear Concealer - NW20

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser - Brightener

NYX Radiant Finishing Powder - Brighten (used over highlighted/concealed areas)

Eye Products

Lorac Pro Palette

L'Oreal Extra Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner - Black

Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara - Black

Cover Girl Clump Crusher Mascara - Black

Anastasia Brow Pomade - Dark Brown

After priming the lids, I used white as the brow bone highlight.

Taupe was blended into the crease as a transition color.  I love this color, and use it often.

I used a small pencil brush and applied gold to the inner 1/3 and outer 1/3 of my lid, leaving the center of my lid with no product.  

I used a flat shadow brush, that I wetted with setting spray, and applied champagne to the center of the lid.

I blended a small amount of sable to the outer crease.

For the upper lash line, I went with a black liner that I winged out.

For the bottom lash line, I used the small pencil brush and applied the gold shadow as a liner.  I used the champagne color in the inner corner and bottom of the inner lash line for a nice highlight.

To finish this look, I applied two - three coats of the Tarte mascara, followed by two coats of the cover girl.  I did one coat of the cover girl on the bottom lashes.
