Hey blog readers/followers!
This look was inspired by Christmas and I thought I should share with you guys how I created it so you can maybe try it out for Christmas or a party.. or whatever you like really. Its green on the lid with a pop of green and silver glitter in the centre with a matt red blended through the crease, because it was inspired by Christmas I thought I would pair it with a bright orange/red lip. I hope you take some ideas from this post and enjoy reading about how I created this look!
As always I started off with my eyeshadow base (mac soft ochre paintpot). I then applied tape following my lower lashline up, so I get a nice sharp edge to my makeup. I then took the dark green from the Sleek ultra matt darks palette and applied this on the beginning of my eye and on the outer corner in a wing shape leaving a section in the middle. In the middle section I then applied Maybelline colour tattoo in eternal silver.
I then applied the matt red from the sleek glory palette and applied this through my crease, blending the green slightly into it. I didn't want to blend this too much, otherwise the red would have changed colour. In the inner corner I applied a little of Illamasquas intrigue blush and applied this on my browbone as a highlight.
Then I took the silvery grey colour from the sleek glory palette and applied this in my inner corner on top of the Illamasqua intrigue blush and also took this a little on my lower lashline. I then applied the green eyeshadow on my lower lashline and concentrated it more on the outer part blending in. I removed the tape and connected my lower and upper lashline colour together. In my waterline I applied a green eyeliner by avon in the shade emerald.
To finish off the eyes I mixed a green and silver glitter to apply in the centre of the eyes. I prepped this area by applying lash adhesive and then applying the glitter with a brush. The lash adhesive will really make the glitter adhere to the eye, catching every particle making it really pop. I then went back with the red shadow and applied this in my crease to blend slightly where the glitter stopped.
I then applied a thin line of maybelline gel liner to my upper lashline and winged this out slightly. I applied some eylure double lashes in 202 to really bring the whole eye makeup look together. I filled in my brows with Illamasqua brow cake in Thunder.
For the face I mixed Rimmel 25 hours and Illamasqua rich liquid foundation together and applied this with my Louise young domed foundation brush. I applied collections 2000 lasting perfection concealor on any blemishes and underneath my eyes.
Using my Nars Ita brush I contoured my cheekbones with Mac studio fix powder in Nw55, and with a Illamasqua blush brush 2 applied Mac blusher in ambering rose and Mac silver dusk on the top of my cheekbones for a highlight.
For the lips I lined them with Illamasqua strumpet pencil and filled them in with Illamasqua lipstick in Ignite.
