What-To-Wear : Christmas Make Up & Looks
I’m very thankful to alcohol, Christmas trees and badly hidden candies! Thank you for sticking up for me all this time!
MAKE UP #1: How ToFirst, apply some eye primer or a white pencil and blend it all out, as we want the eyeshadows to look bright and stay all night. Wow, I started to write in verse, Christmas is a truly inspirational time. Then I used eyeshadows from NYX Caviar&Bubbles choosing the lightest golden shadow and applying it all over the lid.
To emphasize the crease and open up your eyes choose the eyeshadow/powder/bronzer...something a tone darker than your natural skin tone. Take a thin flat brush and a black liquid/gel liner and simply “push” the product into your upper lashes. We are not drawing a line or a flick, we just want to cover all the empty space between the lashes and make them look thicker. If you accidentally smudged the liner, take a thicker, but not a fluffy brush, and gently soften the edges with the dark brown color from the same palette or the color of your preference. I, then, applied some highlighter in the tear duct area and under the brow.
For the lips I chose L.A.Girl and the intense warm red lipstick which you can also use as a cream blush, but don’t forget to set it with the powder! And one more thing, this is a universal makeup, it suits all eye shades, so feel free to vary the intensity of the look from neutral to the evening one by choosing a lighter or a darken golden shadow.
MAKE UP #2 : How ToAgain, we will need an eye primer or a black pencil all over the lid, for the burgundy shadow I mixed NYX and ICING. We apply it on the lid leaving the centre clear as it’s the place where we later apply the intense green eyeshadow. To soften the edges with a soft big blending brush I used a NYX dark bronzer and winged out the shadow a little, to achieve the cat eye. Underneath the eye I applied some dark bronze eyeshadow with a little bit of golden sparkle, again from the ICING palette. You can also add some highlighter in the corner of the eye, and as for the lipstick, I would stick to something neutral as we’ve already done quite a dramatic eye makeup.
MAKE UP #3 : How ToAll the shades are matte and from ICING palette. This a pure fantasy, there are no rules, so basically you can do whatever you like.
For the lid we’re going to need a primer/white pencil and a soft-sky-blue shadow. I blended out the pink eyeshadow up to the brows and you can actually go higher to make your eyes even bigger and brighter. This is going to be a huge candy-makeup, so feel free to experiment. In the crease I put a light violet shadow and softly winged it out, creating the cat eye. Underneath we have a light yellow with some sparkly highlighting eyeshadow. Make sure that everything is soft and blended as we’re trying to achieve this doll-candy-fairy look. Try to watch WinX or Monster High, you’ll get what I mean. It could be awesome if you manage to find any colorful mascara, I just took a usual eye pencil and ...burned it with a lighter and then used a spooly as you would use your typical mascara.
Now comes the tricky part... LIPS. I have to be honest; this thing will not stay forever unless you literally glue it to your lips and get yourself poisoned. For a short time fun you can take the stickiest lipgloss that you have or...apply some honey all over your lips. Then pour any sprinkles that you have on a small plate, your lips should be covered with some “glue” already, and...I mean it, kiss the plate. Sprinkles will “glue” to your lips and if some parts are missing take tweezers and put everything into place. Now, apply some cute, pink, neutral nail polish and pose for the cameras! You’re absolutely candylicious!
