I love the holidays mostly because that means I can douse myself with glitter because, lets be honest, who doesn’t love doing that?! So, in honor of this glittery holiday season, I created a makeup look with bold winged eyeliner and a pop of sparkle!
1. First, start out by moisturizing and priming your skin. Then, cover up any redness with a green concealer.
2. Since I have blemish prone skin I prefer my makeup to be full coverage so I use an orange hued concealer to cover the green concealer I blended in. If you don’t have really problematic skin you can skip this step and jump straight to applying foundation.
3. Brush out your brows and fill them in. Then, set them in place with a clear brow gel.
4. Highlight under your eyes, down the bridge of your nose, cupids bow, chin, and eyebrows to brighten those areas. Make sure to use a concealer that is a few shades lighter than your actual skin tone. Then, set your whole face with translucent setting powder.
5. Contour the hollows of your cheeks, your temples, and down your nose.
6. Apply a flesh-toned cream base all over your lid up to your eyebrow. After, apply an eyeshadow that is the same color as your skin or something very similar. Then, apply a warm soft brown color in the crease. Do not bring it into the “v” area. You want the soft brown eyeshadow to look like it is a slightly winged out, but only in the crease.
7. Use a black gel liner to create a dramatic wing. Then, on your lower lash line use a sparkly or glittery eyeshadow (mixed with a mixing medium) or a glitter liquid liner to create a wing on the bottom as well. Highlight the inner corners of your eyes with a gold color. Also, apply a natural colored blush to finish off your face makeup. Don’t forget to set all of your makeup with a setting spray when you are done!
After applying mascara to your top and bottom lashes, apply falsies if you like. Then, you are done with your eye makeup and it should look like this:
