Below are a few ideas of how to have stunning make up during the holidays. Try it out with different colors and add your own spin on it!
Gold and Navy Tutorial
Apply a gold shadow to the centre of your upper lid. (Honey – Urban Decay) . Don’t worry if this isn’t super tidy, it’ll be blended on all sides anyway.
Add a shimmery dark navy to your inner and outer lid and blend with the gold. ( Deep Truth – MAC)
Using a big fluffy brush, blend some black into the crease and blend upwards.
Using the same fluffy brush , add some matte white to the brown bone and blend downwards into the black.
Ok so this is really step five and six, because genius me forgot to take a picture of step five on its own. Add a thick line of black pencil to your lower lid ( Rimmel Scandaleyes in Black), and also line your upper and lower waterlines with this. Add a big flick of liquid liner to the top lid and finish with a black mascara. Finito!
Cranberry Smokey Eye
Apply a light gold to your lid and browbone. I used a colour from my 120 shadow palette.
Add your cranberry colour to your crease and blend to the gold on both sides. Again, I used a colour from my 120 palette (seriously worth investing in )
Create a strong, defined line under the eye with your cranberry shadow and connect it to the colour in your crease. This is the step that will really make your eyes look a stronger colour.
Add a tiny bit of black shadow to the outer triangle on your upper lid just to add a bit of depth to the look. Be careful not to swamp the look with the black and make sure the red is still the predominant colour.
Finally , add some liner and mascara and your done! I love liquid liner so I added a fat line of it to my upper lid, but a thin line with a black pencil just to darken up your lashline would work equally well with this look.
