I start with blending Giorgio Armani ‘Luminous Silk Foundation’ all over my face. I’m using a Morphe M439 Deluxe Buffer brush. I do this after washing & moisturizing (Neutrogena).
Then I put Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer under my eyes, or if I have a blemish to cover. For best results, use a damp beauty blender to flawlessly blend in concealer.
Contouring, highlighting and brows, everything from Anastasia. In the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit (Light) I use the darker shades to contour under my cheekbones, jawline and on the sides of my nose. I use the lighter shades under my eyes and on the forehead to highlight. I use Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade to fill in my brows with the Anastasia #12 Brow Brush.
Now to the eyes. First I use the soft mauve (second shade) in the Becca Ombre Rouge Eye Palette with a fluffy eyeshadow brush (mine is from Ulta) all over the lid in sweeping windshield wiper motion. I use the darkest shades (third and fifth shades) in the outer corners and switch to the Zoeva 228 Luxe Crease brush to blend the rusty orange (fourth shade) in the crease and under the eyes. Then I go back in with the first fluffy brush and blur it out for a smokey look. Practice makes perfect so just try it out 🙂 I love this eye shadow palette because it has five perfectly matte nudes that are so versatile.
I died and went to heaven the first time I swatched this on my skin at Sephora. The Champagne Glow Palette is a Sephora exclusive and only available in Sephora stores. It has three limited-edition Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed shades— Pearl, Blushed Copper, and bestselling Champagne Pop by Jaclyn Hill. This palette is inspired by the festive holiday season. I mix Champagne Pop and Pearl with the Zoeva 105 Luxe Highlight brush to highlight the tops of my cheekbones and nose. I’ll take the same shades under my brows, and inner corners of the eyes with a smaller precision brush. I use the Sephora Pro Angled Blush brush to lightly blend Blushed Copper on top of my blush or by itself. Lately I’ve been dragging my blush further back and not just on the apples of my cheeks because it gives my face more definition.
For mascara, I have recently fallen in love with the new L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Superstar Mascara. It has a mascara primer that thickens and elongates your lashes. To brighten and open up my eyes, I put a white kohl eyeliner on my water line (Revlon). I’ll set my brows with the Anastasia Clear Brow Gel to make sure my brow hairs stay put through out the day.
I set everything with the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder all over the face with any powder brush to give it a flawless natural finish.
I used Lancôme Rouge Lipstick on my lips.
Hello my loves! As you can see, this simple step by step Romantic Holiday tutorial is the perfect wintertime look! A bold red lip and radiant glowing skin always make me feel confident and beautiful.
