Winter Inspired Holiday Makeup Look

Here goes another Holiday look. This one may be a bit too dramatic for some. I wanted to create a wintery look and what better why to interpret that by using cool colors, something very frosty and glittery. Unfortunately my camera can't capture how glittery my lids really are.

For the eyes:
1. I used a dark brown eyeshadow to defined my eyebrows
2. I applied Urban Decay Primer Potion all over lids.
3. I started with the crease, using a purplish blue color. I used the S14 hot pot from Coastal Scents. I also used a pencil brush because I wanted a very defined cut-crease and blended the color upward.
4. I applied Platinum on my lids a pearly white creamshadow from Benefit.
5. I used a matte white eyeshadow on the brow bone and inner corner of my eyes.
6. I applied a very tiny amount of clear lipgloss on my lids. With my finger and I pat some white glitters over my lids. The clear lipgloss helps the glitters adhere better. I used MAC Reflects Pearl Glitters.
7. On the lower lash line I used NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow pencil in Cottage Cheese and used the purpleish eyeshadow on the outter lower corner.
8. I lined my upper lash line with Stila Waterproof Liquid liner.

For the face:
1. I used Tarte the Eraser Concealer, Estee Lauder Individualist foundation, Bare Escentual powder foundation,
2. I wanted my cheeks to look like they've been bitten by the cold, I actually used a very bright pink eyeshadow there. With the help of my duo-fibre brush, I was able to add color without applying too much.
3. I used NYX taupe blush underneath the cheek bone to define my cheeks

For the lips:
1. I lined my lips with Milani Sugar Plum lip liner and applied it all over my lips.
2. Over the lip liner color I added MAC Rebel Lipstick.
3. On the inner part of my lips I used MAC Petals and Peacocks lipstick. By using 3 different products, I added more depth and dimension to the lip color.
