Baby, it’s cold outside..
It’s that time of the year when the cold weather apparel comes out and the glitz and glam side of makeup can be seen everywhere. I threw together this look that’s perfect for a daytime holiday party – or you know – going to the grocery store. With a bit of of a deeper brown in the outer-v of the eye and a darker shade on the lower lash line, this could be taken right in to evening. I also decided to sport the new Gorjana Taner Toggle Lariat from this seasons FabFitFun box! Instead of looping it once, I decided to wear it as a choker. I like it a lot!
My list of products used are as follows:
- Aveeno Clear Complexion Moisturizer
- Maybelline Baby Skin Primer
- Loreal Infallible Pro-Glo Foundation
- NYX Cosmetics Dark Circle Concealer
- Maybelline Master Conceal
- ABH Contour Palette
- Too Faced Brow Envy Palette
- Lorac Unzipped Cheek Palette
- MAC Ruby Woo Matte Lipstick
- The Balm – Mary Lou Manizer
- Coty Airspun Translucent Powder
- Morphe 350 Palette (several shades to create the eyelook)
- Butter London Iconoclast Mega Volume Lacquer Mascara (from FabFitFun box and I *love* it!)
- Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray
In case you’re wondering I curled my hair using my Bed Head Curlipops 1″ Styling Wand. This is only my third time using it and I absolutely love how the curls come out on my short hair. I’d suggest purchasing this wand on Amazon if you’re interested because Ulta’s website currently has it for $29.99 as opposed to Amazon’s $17.99 (when I got it it was just $14.99!)
Also – I got my sweater at Marshalls a couple of years ago. If I remember correctly it was $19.99 and I got it in a 1X. I’ve decided that I don’t have enough of these chunky cozy sweaters in my life and may need to purchase more before the season is up!
I hope you all liked this holiday look! Let me know what your go-to looks are during the holidays including makeup, hair styles and clothing!
The weather has been slowly changing over from bitterly cold to pleasantly warm.
My creative juices have seriously been flowing for a more peach-y bronzed makeup look topped off with a nude lip.
