Only a couple more days until Christmas, guys, yay! And since the hubby and I are going back home to Belgium for the holidays I’m extra excited. For this month’s Two Dashes Of Glam post my jolly blogging buddy Natasja and I decided to keep it traditional and create two holiday inspired make-up looks in typical Christmas colors. Check it out!
My Christmas Make-Up
When I think Christmas I think red, green and gold. And so does everyone else, probably. Predictable? Maybe. But what else was I gonna do? Blue eyeshadow and a purple lip? Baby Jeebus would turn in his crib, I’m sure! So red, green and gold it is.
✿ Coastal Scents Pomegranate Red (bottom right) ✿
On my eyes I used a combination of the Wet ‘n Wild Color Icon Loose Pigment in Dom & Cherry On Top, an intense warm gold, and Coastal Scents Pomegranate Red, a matte hot red. I first applied the gold on my entire eyelid and then blended the matte red into it in the outer corners of my eyes and crease.
✿ Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil in Glossy Emerald ✿
✿ MAC New Crop ✿
Next I used the Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil in Glossy Emerald, a stuh-huh-huuuuning green eye pencil, to outline my lower waterline and then smudged MAC New Crop against my lower lash line to infuse the look with even more green.
✿ NARS Exhibit A ✿
✿ MAC See Sheer ✿
For blush I used NARS Exhibit A, a matte orangey red, and on my lips I’m wearing MAC See Sheer, a subtle muted coral red from the MAC Red Red Red Collection.
Natasja’s Christmas Make-Up
Natasja ended up using the exact same colors as I did – gold, red and green – but decided to infuse her look with an extra touch of sparkle. Quickly visit Eyes Painted Black to check out her look!
