Quick Look: First Holiday Look

I don't normally get into the Christmas and holiday season this early, but here in the blog universe it seems like Christmas could be tomorrow. I couldn't help but hop on board, so here is my first Christmas look! (I'm sorry if those of you celebrating Thanksgiving today think I'm crazy for posting this today, but that happened weeks ago here!)



Please excuse the messy hair! This eye look was done with a combination of MAC's Stroke of Midnight Eyes in Smoky palette and MAC's Humid eyeshadow. I was trying to decide what to to with the Stroke of Midnight palette. It has that gorgeous gold with green undertones in it called Gaelic Gold and I noticed that it would go perfectly with Humid which is a dark green that has gold shimmer.



I basically used Gaelic Gold all over the lid and Humid in the crease. I deepened the crease with the dark brown in the Stroke of Midnight palette and used the frosty white from the same palette in the inner corner. I'm loving this inner corner highlight! It is called Chillproof from MAC. I blended out the green at the top with pale green and beige from my BH Cosmetics 88 Matte palette. I used humid on the bottom lid as well and then lined my waterline with a forest green eyeliner. I didn't line the top lash, just put on mascara.

On my cheeks I have MAC's Mineralize Blush in Talk of The Town. The lipstick I used is Rimmel's Lasting Finish Lipstick in Jet Set Red. I am now wishing I had used a darker shade of red. Something more cranberry would have been better.



Well, that's it for my first holiday look. I hope you liked it. Have you been getting into the holiday season already?

    1. Thanks! It's one of my favourite combinations. It's like yellow and green which works so well, but more sophosticated.
