Holiday Makeup

Hey beauty lovers!

This Christmas I got a fancy new camera (Canon Rebel T4I, in case you were wondering), which means I am able to take killer photos of makeup and stuff for the potential of some awesome beauty and design posts.

Here is my newest makeup tutorial. And I say "tutorial" loosely, since there isn't really steps to follow (I'll do that next time), but hopefully you can get a sense of colour and placement from it to help.

I used my Too Faced Sweet Indulgence palette. The colours I used were called:

  • "Copper Peony"—as a base colour that I brought up just past my crease.
  • "Cherry Cola"— as the darker crease and outer corner colour
  • "Marshmallow"—as the light colour I used on my inner corners.
  • "Black Sugar"—was used over top of my liner to smoke it out
The mascara I used is by Buxom called Buxom Lash and I really like it—I would totally suggest it! I found my eyelashes started getting dry and itchy which is super annoying, especially when I have contacts. The Buxom mascara doesn't dry out my lashes, probably has something to do with Buxom being a part of Bare Minerals.

I got a sample size of Urban Decay's 24/7 eyeliner and fell in love so much I just bought two more full size pencils today.

And if you're really curious about my foundation it's Urban Decay's Naked Skin foundation in 1.0.

There you have it—the breakdown. If you have any questions feel free to ask!
You can find it on Pinterest here

Hope you beautiful people like this look as much as I do!

xo love,
