Holiday Glam Look

The holidays are coming up and I have this beautiful glam makeup using burgundy and purple shadows. It is just a fun look that is suitable for parties these holidays.

Let's quickly get on with the makeup!

Verikos Ultra Matte Velvet Primer - It's a must to use a primer so your makeup last all night if you wear this look for a party. If it's a party you're going to, you're gonna take a lot of pictures so it's great to stay matte the entire night and not oily. I just used my clean fingers to apply is all over my face.
Graymelin CC Base Cream - This will give the face a nice and dewy look, but since this product makes me a little bit oily, to prevent that I used a matte primer and also apply this lightly on my cheeks and around my nose where there's usually redness. This just helps correct the redness.
Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in 220 Natural Beige - I'm currently loving this foundation, it gives a nice flawless look that has medium coverage. Using my Sigma F84 Angled Kabuki to apply and blend out the foundation.

NARS Stick Concealer in Ginger - Using this for color correction, I applied it underneath my eye and blended it out using a Sigma E40 Blending Brush.
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle in Medium - applying it underneath my eyes on top of the NARS concealer, this acts as a concealer and eye brightener. I used a Sigma F60 Foundation Brush to blend it.
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Plus - Set the makeup with a nice powder for long lasting makeup and oil control.
Clinique Bronzer in Sunkissed - Using an e.l.f. Studio Powder Blush I applied this bronzer to contour my cheeks, temple, jaw and nose.
NYX Powder Blush in Pinched - Not wanting to overpower the eyes, a light dusting of a peachy pink blush usingan angled brush

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle - Highlight important features, the bridge of the nose, cheekbones, Cupid's bow, chin and forehead. Just lightly brush the product using another angled brush.

Wet n Wild Brow Kit

Sumita Beauty Suman Contrast Eye Pencil in Black - Using this as a base, apply it all over the lid and blend out the edges with a brush or your fingers before it sets. Also, use this to line the waterline and the outer corner of the lower lash line.
Stylenanda 3CE One Color Shadow in #Saturn  - Using a Sigma E55 Eye Shading brush, pat the shadow on top of the black eyeliner. This will make the shadow appear more vibrant and shimmery. Also, using a small angled brush, place this color in the middle of the bottom lash line.
UD Naked 2 - Blending is key in any smokey look, so using a Sigma E25 Blending brush, blend away the harsh lines made by the base and #Saturn with this eyeshadow.
Charlote Ronson All Eye Need Palette in Angela - Using the black eyeshadow with purple glitters (1), apply this to the outer V of the eyelid, creating the shape that you want, also, bring it to the crease and blend it in. With an angled brush, apply a small amount to the outer corner of the lower lash line and smudge out the black liner you placed there, blending it with the #Saturn. With the rosy plum shadow (2), use this to blend out the black shadow you just made in the crease. Lastly, to highlight the inner corner of the eyes, use a pencil brush and apply the pinky taupe (3) colored shadow.
UD W.O.S. - A matte creme highlight for the brow bone just balances the whole eye since it is shimmery and bold.
Maybelline Master Drama Gel Liner - This is a step that you can definitely skip since this is already such an intense smokey eye but since I'm applying false lashes, I just wanted a black base.
Ardell 120 Demi Lashes - Fluttery lashes that looks natural when your eyes are open are the best lashes for me. I just curled my lashes with my Shiseido lash curler and applied the lashes with a lash glue. I didn't need to add mascara to the lashes since my lashes look full already.

Wet n Wild Lipstick in 905D Smokin' Hot Pink - A muted hot pink lip is just lovely with this look since it doesn't overpower the eyes. I don't look great with a really nude lip for a smokey eye so I'm settling with this one. It is best to keep the lips matte with this look.

Hope you girls like this look! Leave me some love in the comments section and follow me in Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Bloglovin! :)
