So many holiday parties, such little time!
Are you looking for a simple makeup look to compliment all of your beautiful party dresses? Look no further, Marie from Addiction Cosmetics NV is here to show you how to recreate a simple but beautiful holiday inspired look.
Step 1: Prep your skin with a small amount of “baby’s butt” skin primer. This will smooth over your pores, fine lines, and will prep the skin’s surface for the rest of your makeup.
Step 2: Use “rehab” concealer under your eyes and on blemishes. Lightly pat the concealer to smooth out the color.
Step 3: Use a pea sized amount of liquid to powder mineral foundation to even out your skin tone.
Step 4: Use translucent powder to seal in the foundation.
Step 5: Now to add that holiday glow! Use mineral shimmer powder in “champagne” to lightly dust over your cheekbones, eyelids and brow bones. The shimmer will accent the areas where light normally hits. This adds a beautiful glow and is perfect for the holidays.
Step 6: To accent the champagne shimmer use “scene” black/gold eyeliner with a subtle gold shimmer. To keep the look simple don’t line the inside of your eyes, just the outside. You can either line it with a basic line or you can extend the liner out a bit for a more dramatic cat-eye.
Step 7: To add a little more color, use “cocktail” blush. The beauty of this blush is that it picks up on variation in skin tone and adds a subtle pop of color. Add the color just to the cheekbones.
Step 8: To add the final touch, try one of the many different colors of Addiction NV lip gloss colors. “Have a mojito” is a great color to compliment the “champagne” dust.
