I really enjoyed sharing my first makeup post with all of you, so I thought I would post one again. This time, however, I am going to focus on a look for Holiday parties.
‘Tis the season for holiday gatherings and Christmas parties, so this is my go to look. I set my base make-up the same as I did in my first post. I used my Makeup Forever primer, my Sephora concealer and my Laura Mercier powder foundation.
I’ve always been told that when doing your makeup, you should always focus on one feature. For parties I like to play up my eyes. For this I used my Urban Decay Urban Vices palette which I received as a gift from Sephora. This palette is great for a dramatic smokey eye. Instead of using the eyeliner that came with the Urban Vices kit, I used the eyeliner from my Ipsy bag by Be a Bombshell Cosmetics in Wild Child. While I liked the colour of the eyeliner, I found that it didn’t go on very smoothly.
To finish off my makeup, I added lipstick. This is a natural minerals lipstick by Pacifica. While I liked the colour, Nudie Red, I found that the lipstick itself felt a bit dry.
The finishing touches to any holiday look is your hair. I chose to keep it simple my having a loose french braid and a statement headband. There was a Marc Anthony Hydrating Coconut Oil deep conditioning treatment found in my Ipsy bag. After I shampooed my hair I left the conditioner in for five minutes. After rinsing it and blow-drying my hair, I felt the results of the conditioner. My hair would never felt so soft! I highly recommend this brand.
One of the last things I had to try from my glam bag was the nail polish by Formula X . I wanted to add a little bit of sparkle to complete my look. The colour is called Revved Up. It is a gold with a hint of sparkle. I liked the consistency of the nail polish and found it was hard to chip. I will definitely be buying more of this nail polish.
I look forward to using this look for the holidays. What is your favourite holiday look?
