HOLIDAY LOOK 

THE BASE
The key to beautiful make up is an amazing base. Start with a clean face. If you are oily, apply a Pre Make Up base. For this look, I applied Bioderma's Pore Refiner on the areas where I get oily. Allow the base to set before you start applying your foundation.

I used MAKE UP FOREVER's HD Foundation in N128 with the Stippling Brush. The soft bristles of this brush allows you to work the foundation into your skin without having to worry about damaging it.

I applied Benefit's Sun Beam with Brush Number 9 on the bridge of my nose and cheekbones.

I concealed my dark circles, redness around the nose with MUFE's Full Cover Concealer in number 8 and Brush Number 13.

Brush Number 1 was lightly dipped in MUFE's Duo Mat Powder in 307 to set the base

CONTOUR, BLUSH AND HIGHLIGHT
To softly sculpt my cheekbones I used Brush Number 2 with NARS Laguna Bronzer. To give my cheeks the some colour, I applied NARS Blush in Orgasm on the apples of cheeks with Brush Number 3. To mimic the JLO Glow, I used Brush Number 14 with MAC's Chez Chez Lame on my cheekplane

THE BROWS
To define my brows and give my eye "The Lift" I used a dark brown eyebrow pencil and to make it look more natural, I used  Brush Number 6 dipped in Benefit's Brow Zings in Medium. Lastly, I kept the brows in place with Mikyajy's Clear Brow Gel.



THE LIFT!

THE BEDAZZLING EYES
To create that sexy, soft, come hither eyes, follow these steps.

Apply an eye primer all over your eyes and lower lash line with Brush Number 9. I used Urban Decay's Primer Potion for this look.

Take a Brown Kohl Pencil like MAC's Teddy and line your lash bed, waterline and lower lash line.

Take Brush Number 7 and dip the tip of the brush on a shimmer brown eye shadow (I used Urban Decay's Naked Palette 2 Snake Bite) and smudge kohl pencil on the lash bed, and lower lash line.

Using the flat surface of the same brush apply the same colour on the entire lid.

To give your eyes the depth that it needs, apply a matte eye shadow like Tease from UD NP 2 on your crease with Brush Number 10 and blend.

To brighten the eyes a bit, apply a shimmer shadow like UD NP in verve on the tear ducts using the flat side of Brush Number 7.

Lastly, apply a Matte Pale Yellow es like UD NP in Foxy with Brush Number 12 on your browbone.

THE LIPS
Whether  you are going pale lips or a powerful Red one precise application is key.

I lined my lips with MAC's Spice  lipliner and blended the liner with Brush Number Four and applied NARS' Turkish Delight Gloss.

For look Number 2, I defined my lips with INGLOT's Lip Pencil in 58 and filled it in with MAC's Russian Red Lipstick.
