Holiday Makeup Look - Gold and Burgundy

Merry Christmas my lovely readers! Hope you are having a great one!
So if you got a chance to see the previous makeup look, I was trying to avoid doing a gold/red combo. One of my follower, Cynthia, requested that I do one anyways because everyone's look is different. Now that I think of it, she is absolutely right.
After I finished my eye makeup, I actually tried out a few reds and found they clashed with the burgundy eyeshadow that I used. Luckily, I found a red combo that worked beautifuly with this look and I think you'll like it if you find that you are having trouble pulling off reds because it's more toned down.
So here is my own spin...

  • Physicians Formula Cashmere Wear bronzer
  • MAC On A Mission Powder Blush
  • I applied UDPP original all over my lids
  • I started off with the highlight color on my browbone. I used M04 from the Coastal Scent's Fall Festival palette.
  • I used a combination of ME15 (Fall Festival palette) and a Real Drama (MAC Intriguing Scarlet palette) on the crease and outter V.
  • I applied MAC Treasure Hunt paint pot (I forgot to take a picture of it) all over my lids and used a MAC gold pigment on top of it. I don't know the name of the pigment. I was part of a set my sister bought and I just scooped a little bit of it for myself. It's very a very bright glizy gold. Kinda fell all over my face.
  • I lined the upper lash line with Physicians Formula Eye Booster Ultra Black, creating a heavier winged liner
  • I lined the inner lower lash line with Milani Liquif'Eye Gold and the outter lower lash line with Stila Smudge Pot Black.
  • I added ELF Natural False Lashes
  • I filled my brows with Milani Easy Brow Dark Brown
Hope you enjoyed this look. What kind of look are you rocking for the holidays?
