So once upon a time I was convinced I was going to be a makeup artist. That never happened. Instead, I ended up on reality TV and am now writing on this blog. Woah, I know. Bigshot over here.
But I still really enjoy makeup and frequently stalk YouTube to watch complete strangers paint their face. At this point, I feel like I really do know Jaclyn Hill. Hey girl.
With winter upon us, I wanted to go a little more festive with my makeup so I put together this look after I became obsessed with the MAC’s “Topped With Brandy” Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour. (The best).
I went for a cranberry/gold glitter smokey eye and bold lip and ta-daaaaa, you can see the results + the products I used below.
One day I SWEAR I am going to do a whole post + video on my full-blown makeup routine for y’all… stay tuned.
But for this smokey eye, I am using the Colour Pop Fortune Palette. I cannot say enough how much I looooove Colour Pop’s eyeshadow. It’s vibrant and each palette is only around 15 bucks.
So much yes.
The colors I used on my eyes were:
-Oracle on the lid
-Wiser on the crease
-Trave in the deep crease
Here is a quick recap of how I did it.
Start with Wiser (warm peachy shade) and blend it on your lid and crease. You can take this a bit higher than your normal crease line. This is your base color.
Take Trave (deep pink/cranberry) and start blending it into your crease and take it all the way across from corner to corner.
Dap Oracle (shimmery gold) in the center of your lid to give it a pop of gold.
Don’t forget to highlight your brow bone! I used C.R.E.A.M. in this palette.
If you want to add even MORE sparkle (like myself), you can use Stila’s Glitter and Glow liquid eyeshadow in Kitten Karma and dab it on top of the gold shadow on the center of your lid.
Add a coat of MAC’s Matte Liquid Lipcolour in “Topped With Brandy” and BAM. You’re ready for any Christmas party!
