My Holiday Look

Welcome to Look Thursday! Today I used my Makeup Geek Ultimate Palette to put together a look perfect for Christmas.

Since I spend Christmas with my family, I wanted to do something a little more subtle than the sparkly traditional gold, red and/or greens looks that are normally used to represent this holiday. So I decided to go with purples on my lid and nude lips. I did add just a bit of sparkle to my inner corner (hey, it is Christmas after all) and used Milani’s Black Vinyl liner to spice it up a bit.

For this look I used:

  • Eyes: Makeup Geek eye shadows in Beaches and Cream, Cocoa Bear, Prom Night, Unexpected, Sensuous, Drama Queen, Wet n’ Wild Fergie eye shadow primer in (), Milani liquid liner in Black Vinyl, Urban Decay 24/7 Eye pencil in Zero, Wet n’ Wild Megalength waterproof mascara
  • Brows: Jordana eye brown pencil in Dark Brown
  • Face: Rimmel Fix & Perfect Pro Primer (check out my review here), MAC Matchmaster Foundation shade 7.5, L.A. Girl Pro.conceal HD concealer in Fawn, Rudy Kisses mineral powder in Chestnut, Black Radiance pressed powder in Rich Mahogany as a light contour, Iman Sheer Finish bronzing powder in Afterglow as a highlight, and e.l.f. cosmetics makeup setting spray
  • Lips: Nyx lip primer in Deep Nude, Nyx lip pencil in Chestnut, and Wet n’ Wild LE matte lipstick in Sweet Cream
christmas
I used: Sensuous on the lid, Drama Queen in the crease/outer corner, Unexpected as a transition color, Prom Night in the inner corner, and I mixed Cocoa Bear with Beaches and Cream on the browbone.

Black Radiance Artisan Color Baked Blushes: Warm Berry and Toasted Almond

Black Radiance Artisan Color Baked Blush

I was first introduced to Black Radiance products when I did my friends makeup for her wedding.  Since I was just beginning to do makeup on others, I asked her to bring her foundation with her, and it was from black Radiance. That day prompted me to look more into the products that they offer because the foundation was pretty good (but we’ll discuss that later). I went to Rite Aid to find the Black Radiance selection and came across some beautiful baked blushes (try saying that three times fast, lol). The colors popped in the package and I hoped that they would be just as pigmented when I finally got them home. These blushes were way more pigmented than I expected. With the Warm Berry blush I have to use a very light hand so that I won’t over do it.
