Holiday Makeup Look - Festive Plum

A makeup look was long overdue but I have been trying to keep up with my hauls and reviews. I still haven't finished my nail polish haul, lol, yes I still got a lot more to show you but I didn't want to bore you with 3 consecutive nail polish blog posts.

The holidays are coming up and it's the perfect time to do some festive makeup look. So from now on, I will do several holiday looks for your entertainment. I don't wanna bore you to death with my makeup reviews so I'm trying to switch things around so that there is a bit of everything.

For my eyebrows, I used the ELF eyebrow kit. Before starting my eye makeup, I used Urban Decay Primer Potion. I applied Benefit Plum-ing for Gold cream shadow on the lid with a brush. On my crease, I used Essence eyeshadow Big Bang. For the outer V, I used the navy blue eyeshadow from my Estee Lauder Blue Dahlia palette. I also applied over the cream shadow a pigment called Shadow Charisma from Pure Luxe Cosmetics. This adds a pinkish gold sheen to the plumy cream shadow. On the brow bone and inner corner, I used Virgin from Urban Decay. On the lower lash line, I used Stila Smudge pot in Violet. I think this really makes my eyes pop.

I used Wet N Wild Mega Liner liquid eyeliner in black for the upper lid. I added fancy feather lashes that comes with little rhinestones. I finished the eye makeup with NYX Liquid Crystal Liner in Crystal Pewter. I am so glad I bought those glitter liners, they really come in handy for a festive makeup look.

For the face I used Lancome Teint Idole and Revlon ColorStay foundation, Bare Escentuals powder foundation, Benefit Erase Paste, MAC mineralized blush Hang Loose (cheeks). On my lips I'm wearing Prestige Waterproof lipliner in Diva and Revlon Superlustrous in Stormy Pink. I figure I'd go with a matte bubble gum pink lipstick to balance the look since I have shimmer and glitter going on my eyes.

Overall, it's nothing too least I don't think it is. But definitely a fun look for parties.
