Calling All Beauty Queens – Holiday Makeup!!

I love this time of year because no one bugs me for wanting to wear sequin pretty much everytime I go out! I also love to experiment with makeup, particularly anything with glitter and shimmer. It’s the only time of year where you can be super dramatic and bold with your makeup for an entire month. That’s 30-days of non-stop glamour, who doesn’t love this?!

I am pretty picky when it comes to makeup, I only like the good stuff. Seriously, I won’t waste my money on brands that don’t meet my product quality requirements. It’s your skin, so don’t just put anything on it. Even when it comes to makeup, whether it’s organic/natural or not, go for quality. Invest in makeup that won’t ruin your skin. Invest in makeup that will give you the look you desire and last beautifully all day.

Remember beauties, wash your face every night! Don’t sleep with your makeup!


Here are my favourite holiday glam makeup looks and what products I think will help you achieve these looks:

 

SHIMMER

The shimmer is all about the GLOW. Using highlighters, bronze tones and gold will help you get this look.

butter LONDON Glazen Eye Gloss, Moonshine, 1 Oz
butter LONDON Glazen Eye Gloss, Moonshine, 1 Oz – $32.04 CAD.

 

 

BOLD

A strong lip or a dramatic eye. With this look, you can really go there with it.

 

butter LONDON Plush Rush Lipstick-Champagne, Provocative
butter LONDON Plush Rush Lipstick-Champagne, Provocative – $30.00 CAD

 

 

STATEMENT

For statement, it’s one or the other. What’s your beauty statement? Should we focus on your lips or are your eyes making the statement?

CLASSIC

Keep it simple and elegant. Glowing skin with a neutral lip or just gloss & mascara.

Too Faced Melted Chocolate Color
Too Faced Melted Chocolate Color – $28.15 CAD.

This works great for light to dark skin tones, it’s just the right amount of colour and looks quite natural.

 

 

Smith & Cult Lip Stain
Smith & Cult Lip Stain – $31.00 CAD.

This stain comes in a few hues. It’s great alone or top it off with a good gloss to make the colour pop.

 

You can also mix and match all of the above looks to create your own look! For instance, the eyeshadow, eye glaze, strong liner and red lipstick would look beautiful.
