Holiday Makeup Look

I don’t actually watch runway fashion shows terribly often, but when I do I sometimes think “Well, ya, of COURSE they can wear that, they can wear anything and it would probably look good on them. But I don’t look like them and I don’t have a million dollars to spend to play dress up.” The photos below may seem like I am giving you the makeup version of the runway show experience since Marina is so beautiful, but hear me out! You can probably achieve a similar look using mostly products you already own. The only thing I had to purchase for this was the one shade of super duper sparkly eyeshadow.

step_1Apply foundation primer (lately I’ve been liking Tarte’s.) Then foundation and bronzer.  Apply a lip hydrator (I’m obsessed with Bite’s lip mask! I use it on my cuticles too.) Apply eyeshadow primer and fill in your browsstep_2Then use a light brown eyeshadow on the crease and under the lower lash line. Wing it out and connect them together! I used Wedge by MAC.  The brush I used to apply and to blend for this was the Tom Ford Blend brush.  Since I’m a professional makeup artist and I’m doing makeup around the clock, I tend to invest more in brushes and things that will save me time, and this brush does. But for this any fluffy shadow brush with do.  I also like the MAC Fluff Brush. step_3Ok now for the fun part, sparkly eyeshadow!!!! I used Vintage Black Gold and there’s a quick video showing how to use it here. I applied it with this brush thing shown in the photo above, but I haven’t used it again since so I’d probably just apply it with your finger or a multitasking synthetic bristled brush like this one here.  I lined the lower inner rim with Lancome’s Blanc eyeliner but really any white khol eyeliner would probably work.step_4Apply mascara, Hypnose is a favorite of mine. Add your favorite light lip color, here I used Buxom White Russian.  *Optional, add top eyeliner and some lashes. For this look I used Ardell’s #205.
