I thought I would try a new make up look to start off the holiday season. I was feeling inspired, I guess. This look is definitely a little bit more of a full glam look, but feel free to modify it however you want!
I started off by priming my face with the Too Faced Hangover Primer Spray and also the Becca Backlight Priming Filter over top to make sure it lasts. Then I used my Nars Radiant Longwear Foundation and my Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer under my eyes. I contoured my cheeks with the Anastasia Cream Contour Kit next and then used the Laura Mercier Translucent Powder under my eyes and a loose foundation powder all over my face.
For my cheeks, I used my favorite bronzer to set my contour, the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer in Dark Chocolate. For my cheeks, I used a limited edition blush palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills. To highlight, I used my Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Lilac Geode. For my brows, I always always always use my Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer and set them with a clear mascara from Maybelline. I always use clear mascara to set my brows instead of paying $20 for a “brow gel” that is essentially the same thing!
Now for the fun part! For my eyes, I used my Kat Von D Shade and Light Eyeshadow Palette and my Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. In my crease, I use the shade Sawael from the Shade and Light Palette and Sytry in my outer corner. For my lid, I used YDK from my Naked 2 Palette. Then I went back in with Sytry on my lower lash line and used my Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean to line my top waterline. For my winged liner, I used my Maybelline Line Stilleto which has always been my favorite. I love the felt tip! Last but not least, for my lips, I used my Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi which is the PERFECT nude color.
