HOLIDAY LOOK: SHIMMER!









THE LIPS

I USED MAC'S CREAMOLA LIP LINER AND MAC'S VIVA GLAM LIPSTICK AND GLOSS IN LADY GAGA






I CURLED MY LASHES AND APPLIED A COAT OF BENEFIT'S THEY'RE REAL MASCARA AND THE APPLIED INDIVIDUAL FALSE LASHES.


I APPLIED 2 COATS OF MASCARA ON MY LOWER LASHES TO BALANCE THE THE VOLUME GENERATED BY THE FALSIE ON MY UPPER LASHES.



I LINED MY WAYERLINE WITH MAC'S FELINE AND APPLIED MIKYAJY'S LIQUID LINER ON MY LASH BED.


I APPLIED A SHIMMERY EGGPLANT SHADE, ALSO FROM COASTAL SCENTS' NEUTRAL PALETTE ON MY OUTER V AND BLENDED.


I ALSO LINED MY LOWER LASH LINE WITH THIS SHADE, PAYING MORE ATTENTION TO THE OTHER CORNER.


( THIS TECHNIQUE IS PERFECT FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE ROUNDED EYES AND WOULD LIKE TO ELONGATE THEIR EYES AND MAKE IT LOOK IT MORE CAT LIKE)


TO FINISH THE EYE SHADOW, I APPLIED THE SAME LID COLOUR ON MY BROW BONE.



I APPLIED THIS SOFT BROWN SHADOW ON MY CREASE FROM COASTAL SCENTS' NEUTRAL PALETTE.


THE EYES

I APPLIED THIE SHIMMERY PINK SHADE FROM COASTAL SCENTS' 88 SHIMMER PALETTE ALL OVER MY LIP AND ON MY TEAR DUCTS.






THE BROWS

I USED BEN NYE'S BROW PENCIL IN TAUPE TO CREATE THE BROW SHAPE THAT I WANT.


I ALSO USED BENEFIT'S BROW ZINGS IN LIGHT TO BLEND AND MAKE IT LOOK MORE NATURAL.


TO SET, I APPLIED MIKYAJY'S BROW GEL.




FOR HIGHLIGHTING, I USED INGLOT'S AMC SHIMMER BRICK.


TO SET MY BASE, I USED MAC'S MINERALIZE FOUNDATION (LOOSE) WITH THE SPONGE THE CAME WITH WITH ON THE AREAS WHERE I GET THE MOST OILY.


FOR THE REST OF MY FACE, I JUST USED A BRUSH.


THE CHEEKS

BEFORE SETTING WITH POWDER, I APPLIED BOBBI BROWN'S CREAM BLUSH IN BABY PINK ON THE APPLES OF MY CHEEKS AND AFTER POWDERING I BRUSHED ON NARS' ORGASM ON TOP OF THE CREAM BLUSH


(MAKES YOUR BLUSH LAST LONGER)





THE BASE

FOR THIS LOOK I USED MY GRAFTOBIAN WARM PALETTE.


I USED 2 SHADES OF FOUNDATION, A SLIGHTLY DARKER SHADE FOR MY FOREHEAD THE SHADE THAT I NORMALLY USE.


I USED MY BEAUTY BLENDER TO APPLY THE FOUNDATION.


TO COVER BLEMISHES I ISED MY MUFE COLOUR CORRECTOR PALETTE AND MY COASTAL SCENTS' CONCEALER PALETTE.


I USED ESTEEE LAUDER'S TIME ZONE WHERE I WAS PEELING (MOSTLY AROUND THE NOSE AREA). I APPLIED MUFE'S HD PRIMER ON THE REST OF MY FACE.


I ALSO APPLIED THE SMASHBOX PHOTO OP UNDER MY EYES.


TO KEEP MY LIPS HYDRATED, I APPLIED MY DERMALOGICA CLIMATE CONTROL LIP BALM.
