With the stress of wrapping gifts, prepping food, and figuring out what to wear, the thing most women forget about is makeup! Sure you can put on the makeup you wear on a daily basis, but it’s the holidays so why not do something a little out of the ordinary?! Today I’m sharing a simple holiday makeup look that is perfect for this weekend! I’m taking you step by step to achieve the look!
Step 1: In the Pixi Palette Rosette, take the lightest brown shade from the brow hues pan on a big blending brush and apply it in windshield wiper motions to the crease. Continue blending until the shadow is even. (I want to note that I started this look with my foundation, concealer and powder already on!).
Step 2: Apply the medium brown shade from the brow hues pan to your crease, this time using a smaller blending brush and focusing on the outer half of the crease. Don’t put this shade in the inner half of the crease because it will make the eye makeup look too dark. Once again make sure it is completely blended in.
Step 3: Take a flat synthetic brush and apply some sort of setting spray to it. I used Urban Decay’s All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray, but you could also use Mac ‘s Prep + Prime Fix + or Pixi Beauty’s Makeup Fixing Mist. I will be using a metallic pigment on the eyelid and this helps make the pigment look even more metallic, which is perfect for a festive makeup look! It also helps pick the pigment up out of the jar.
Step 4: Dip the synthetic brush into one of the pigments from the Pixi Metallic Warmth Fairy Dust Favourites – I chose to use the dark brown color – and apply to the eyelid, avoiding the crease area. With the help of the setting spray, the pigment looked like a pretty brown-gold shade! As you can tell in the next picture, I also filled in my brows, applied black gel eyeliner, and put on false lashes. These lashes are my absolute favorite.
Step 5: Taking a flat definer brush, apply the lightest brown shade that was used in the crease to the lower lash line. Then apply black eyeliner and mascara.
Step 6: Apply the Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in the shade Opal Overcoat to the lower waterline. This step is optional, but I love how it really makes your eyes pop!
Step 7: Apply the Cheek Blush from the Palette Rosette to the apples of both cheeks. I’m seriously in love with this blush color!
Step 8: Apply the Pixi Classic Red Mattelustre lipstick! I’m very picky with my red lipsticks because some can make your teeth look yellow, but this one has blue undertones, making your teeth appear whiter!
The completed look!
