Three Holiday Makeup Looks 2019

I recently purchased a new Morphe palette to try out and decided to use it for my holiday make up looks. I got the Morphe 35G Bronze Goals Palette from Ulta Beauty for just $25! The colors initially are really beautiful and have a good mix of shimmers and matte colors. I think this palette is perfect for holiday looks, for summer looks, really for any time of year! Keep on reading to see how I used it to create 3 holiday make up looks!

To start, my base is the same for all three looks. I used a combination of my Becca Matte Primer and the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer. For foundation, I used the Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation (which I am obsessed with and will never use a high end foundation ever again) in the shade 322 Warm Beige. For concealer, I used the Too Faced Born This Way Concealer in Natural Beige and contoured with the Anastasia Cream Contour Palette in Medium. I set everything with my Laura Mercier Translucent Powder which is my godsend and my favorite powder of all time. For bronzer, I used my favorite Too Faced Dark Chocolate Soleil Bronzer and for blush I went in with the Becca Blush in Wild Honey. My brows of course are using the Anastasia Brow Definer in Ebony and they are set with a clear mascara from Maybelline. Every look will be finished with my Diorshow Lash Primer and Volume Mascara and my L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara.

Look 1:

For the first look, I wanted to do something a bit more dark and sultry. This one is great if you have a more formal evening party. For my base, I used the color Sandy in my Morphe palette. It’s a warmish light brown and I washed it all over my eye lid and into my crease. For my crease, I used a slightly darker brown called Nekked. I also used a pretty shimmery dark brown on my lid and along my lower lashline called Tan-Talize. For my lip color, I used my Smashbox Liquid Lipstick in Stepping Out.

Look 2:

For my second look, I decided to do a look that is right in the middle, not too light and not too dark. For this one I also used the color Sandy as my base, but in my crease I used a warm reddish brown called Record Temps. I wanted a lot of shimmer, so I used a bright glittery gold color called Rays on my lids. For my lips, I used my new Colourpop Lippie Stix in Ziggie, which is the pretty dark orange color.

Look 3:

For the last look, I wanted it to be light and pretty. This is a look that would be great for day time parties if you switch out the lip color or great for night time as is. I used Sandy for the base again, and Nekked in the crease. For my lids, I used a shimmery pink-champagne color called Paradise. Lastly, for my lip color I used another Colourpop Lippie Stix in Thousand Percent which is a really rich cherry chocolate color.

My Easy, No Foundation Fall Makeup Look

My Easy, No Foundation Fall Makeup Look

Today, I’m sharing a super quick and easy fall makeup look. I’m actually really happy with how it turned out! I took inspiration from all the pretty fall colors I’m starting to see and decided to base my makeup off of that.

I started off using my Too Faced Hangover Rx Primer Spray, and then adding my Too Faced Born This Way Concealer under my eyes and on my cheeks. I use the color Caramel first under my eyes and on my cheeks to cover my acne scarring and then I go back in with Warm Beige in the inner corner under my eyes to brighten. I set everything with my Laura Mercier translucent powder.

For blush, I used an old limited edition Anastasia Beverly Hills blush kit in the color Vegas and I used my favorite bronzer, the Too Faced Dark Chocolate Soleil bronzer. I love the way these two look paired together, it’s very pretty and warm. Be sure to use a light hand on the blush because it’s VERY pigmented! For my highlight, I used Chocolate Geode by Becca Cosmetics. I finished off my face by filling in my eyebrows with my Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer and set it with clear mascara.

For my eyes, I decided to use a NYX eyeshadow palette that I had and my Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette. I started off using Low Blow from the Urban Decay Palette in my crease and then went in with a warm nudey-mauve color all over my lid from the NYX palette. For the outer corner, I took a pretty cranberry color from the NYX palette and lightly added that in also. I finished it off using a pretty shimmery light pinky-cranberry color on my inner corner, also from the NYX palette. I added some black winged eye liner and finished it off with my Too Faced Bette Than Sex Mascara, because I ran out of my favorite Dior mascara. For lips, I used my Buxom Plumpline Lip Liner is the color Undercover.
