Merry Christmas Eve! For those of you celebrating today and tomorrow, I wanted to create a look that’s subtly festive and universally flattering. The result is this soft shimmering makeup that takes just a few products and minutes.
The eyes are the definitely focus of this look. Rather than focusing on reds or greens, I opted for pink and champagne shimmers. It’s a little more sophisticated and because they’re relatively close to my skin tone, these shades are more forgiving.
I began by sweeping a light matte yellow all over the lid with a fluffy brush. Then, I defined the crease with a light warm taupe. Usually I wouldn’t go all over the lid with a shimmer, but ’tis the season. I wet a packing brush and loaded it with this gorgeous copper shadow. To give the inner corner a boost, I added a sparkly rose gold. I ran both the shimmers along the lower lash line and added mascara to finish off the eyes.
Just about any lip color would work with this look. I went for Au Naturale lipstick in the shade innocence over lip balm for a barely there pinky flush.
And that’s it! I hope you all have a great Christmas or just a great couple of days if you’re not celebrating. I might be posting tomorrow as well with a vegan christmas food recap since my Thanksgiving recap went down so well. We’ll see, but either way, I’ll see you on Tuesday with something very exciting.
