Cranberry & Gold Holiday Makeup Look

holiday1

I’ll get right into it. I was playing in my makeup and found myself moving towards a cranberry and gold makeup look that I thought would be perfect for the holidays. Here’s a list of all of the products that I used:

BROWS

  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow – ‘Ebony’
  • e.l.f. Instant Lift Brown Pencil – ‘Dark’
  • e.l.f. Clear Brow & Lash Mascara

EYES

  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette – ‘Realgar’, ‘Red Ochre’
  • Coastal Scents Hot Pot – ‘Chocolatier’
  • NYX Ultra Pearl Mania Pigment – ‘Nude’
  • Wet ‘N’ Wild Color Icon Glitter Single – ‘Brass’
  • Kat Von D Tattoo Liner – ‘Trooper’
  • Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
  • Ardell Double Lashes #204

*For this particular look, I created a halo eye. I first used ‘Realgar’ as a transition shade and applied it all over my lid. I then took ‘Red Ochre’ and applied it to my inner third of and outer third of my eye. Afterward, I applied a tiny bit of my LA Girl Pro Conceal in ‘Warm Honey’ to the middle third of my eye. On top of the concealer, I placed both ‘Primavera’ and the NYX Ultra Pearl Mania Pigment. With a separate brushed, I placed the Wet ‘N’ Wild Color Icon Glitter in ‘Brass’ to accent the golden middle third. Lastly I connected the inner and outer thirds by blending them together in a windshield wiper motion.

FACE

  • Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer
  • Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation – ‘Warm Walnut’
  • Maybelline Fit Me Concealer – ‘Medium’ [to highlight]
  • Laura Mercier Translucent Powder
  • LA Girl Pro Conceal – ‘Orange’ [to color correct], ‘Fawn’ [to conceal],  ‘Espresso’ [to contour]
  • Black Radiance True Complexion Contour Palette – ‘Light to Medium’
  • e.l.f. Sunkissed Glow Bronzer
  • Too Faced Love Flush Blush Wardrobe – ‘Your Love Is King’

LIPS

  • Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick – ‘Evil Twin’
  • Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip – ‘Silhoutte’

*I wanted to add a small about of dimension to my lips, so I decided to go for a subtle ombre lip. I first applied the Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick in ‘Evil Twin’ all over my lips. While still tacky, I applied Colourpop’s ‘Silhouette’ to the center and rubbed my lips together so that the colors would blend seamlessly.
