Love the romantic yet sparkling holiday looks that hit the runway this time of year? Check out some of the most popular looks that you can create at home with these festive palettes! I've decoded them for you step by step so all you have to do is experiment!
1.) Apply a foundation that will give your skin a flawless finish like HD Invisible Liquid Foundation by Make Up Forever ($42.00) Comes in 24 great shades to mix and match any skin tone!
2.) Apply Glitter Glue like Too Faced Glitter Glue ($20.00). This glitter glue will enhance reflective qualities of glitter and keep it in place! Apply it to the upper lid and slightly in the inner crease towards the nose, like a reverse cat eye.
3.) Choose a silver, iridescent or white glitter like Obsessive Compulsive's Cosmetic Glitter in "Fae" ($14.00). Apply to where you previously applied your glitter glue, patting lightly!
4.) Line the bottom water line of your eye, sweeping to the outer corners of your eyes and inwards with a reverse cat eye also with a metallic white eyeliner such as 24/7 Glide on Pencil by Urban Decay in "Yeyo" ($20.00). Slightly under your water line line the white line you created with a subtle black streak on the bottom lid, sweeping outwards. Also line the top lid right above the eyelashes. Use a black shaded eyeliner like 24/7 Glide on Pencil by Urban Decay in "Zero" ($20.00)
5.) Use a natural black mascara to subtly define your eyelashes. Try Lancome's Definicils HD Mascara in Black ($27.50). Sweep on the top lashes twice and once on the bottom lashes.
6.) Sweep on a warm toned rosey or apricot toned lightly shimmering blush such as Bare Minerals I.D. in Golden Gate ($19.00)
7.) Lastly apply a lightly shimmery, gold/pink gloss to the lips. Try Buxom Lipgloss in "Amber" ($19.00).
1.) Swipe on a golden shimmery shadow to the top and bottom lids, focusing heavily on the lower lids. Try Ardency Inn Modster Manuka Honey Enriched Eyeshadow in "Heaven" ($21.00)
2.) Line the top lids in a heavy cat eye with a metallic emerald green liner like Kat Von D's Autograph Pencil in "Eyegasm" ($10.00).
3.) Line the eyes again in a black liner on the top and bottom water lines right above the lashes. Do this lightly, you want your green liner to be the most visible liner. Try Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in "Blacquer" ($25.00)
4.) Using a natural mascara like Diorshow Iconic in Black ($28.50), apply a layer to the top and bottom lashes.
5.) Line your lips in a nude bronze shade, such as Sephora's Nano Lip Liner in Pretty Praline ($5.00)
6.) Define your lips with a golden hue of Lipstick! This really makes this look pop! I loved Bobbi Brown's Shimmer Finish Lip Color in "Beige Gold Shimmer" ($26.00)
7.) Last apply a shimmery nude shade of blush with a hint of gold or pink, like Too Faced Perfect Flush Blush in "Peach Blush" ($30.00)
1.) This is a simple yet high impact look! Apply a metallic grey liquid or stick liner in graphic lines on the bottom lid and the top lid right above the lash line, but not touching it. Try out Too Faced Bulletproof Liner in "Silver Lining" ($22.00)
2.) Line your lips with a bright, matte fuschia tone carefully with a product like Make Up Forever Aqua Lip Liner in Fuschia 16C ($19.00)
3.) The the center of the lips, feather out a more coral pink tone in a slightly glossy product, like Bite Beauty's High pigment Pencil in "Corvina" ($24.00)
1.) Apply a metallic silver shade to the entire eyelid, and the lower lid, swiping outwards towards the ears. Try Stila Magnificient Metals in Comex Platinum ($32.00)
2.) Apply a darker, more grey metallic shade to the crease blending outwards on the upper lid. Try Stila Magnificient Metals in Titanium ($32.00)
3.) Apply thick black heavy liner, like Benefit's They're Real Push Up Liner in Black ($24.00) in a cat eye on the top and bottom lid!
4.) Apply a light nude shimmery lipgloss to the lips, such as Buxom's Full On Lip Polish in "Samantha" ($19.00)
1.) After you've applied foundation, dab a pinkish red shimmering hue to the upper eyelids, blending outwards softly. Make Up Forever's D850 Nitro Pink Diamond ($21.00) is the closest shadow you'll find to this runway shade! Keep the bottom lid free of this shade.
2.) Apply a golden, beige with shimmer to the bottom lid such as Make Up Forever Pink Iridescent Ivory eyeshadow ($21.00)
2.) Dress up your lips with a nude shimmering, and plumping lip gloss like Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lip Gloss in "Walk of Shame" ($20.00)
3.) Last but not least, apply a bronzer such as Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector ($38.00) in "Topaz" to the cheeks!
