Holiday glam series!

Hey guys!

Glitter is huge lately, especially now that it is getting closer to the holidays. So I thought I would do a series of holiday looks including a few glitter ones!

I like to start my makeup with the eyes, especially when I am using colours that have fallout or glitter.

EYES: Primer Mac potssoft ochre” and too faced

I used purple, brown and blue eyeshadow for this look. First take the brown and place it in your crease and bottom lashes. Do not go higher than your crease when using the colour.

Then take a purple shadow and place it all over your lid leaving the crease area a little bit brown for a nice transition.

Take the Too faced primer again and place it wherever you would want the glitter.

I did it mostly in the inner three quarters of the eyelid. Then apply purple glitter using your fingers or a small flat brush using a patting motion.

I lined my waterline with Laura Mercier Creme Liner in “Canard”. I am obsessed with the Laura Mercier creme liners.

They go on super smooth, do not irritate my sensitive eyes and stay on for a very long time! Not to mention the colours are amazing! They are a bit difficult to remove though.

I also smudged the liner on the top lash line and outer corner and defined the inner corner with black Stila pen.

Highlight in the inner corners of your eyes and under the eyebrows using a highlighter (I used Sonia Kashuk).

FACE: The rest of the face is as always! Clean up any fall out.

Apply your foundation and concealer. I used Dior but use whatever you prefer. The foundation and concealer are not all that special despite the cult following… Will do a review post.

Contour and highlight and apply a light blush.

You do not want to over do the blush and lips because you have plenty of colour on your eyes!

I used peach on my lips topped with a peach gloss by NYC
