Hey Glitter Babes!

Symbols of the Christmas season start to spring up around us in the beginning of November and when we spot them, we start to get into the holiday spirit. They’re meant to incite favourite holiday memories, burn holiday scented candles, bake cookies and feel the need to shop till you drop on Christmas gifts for loved ones.. which gets me every time! For my holiday makeup tutorials this year, I’m using those symbols of Christmas as inspiration.

My first holiday look is inspired by my favourite holiday tradition of decorating the house and tree for Christmas! So, this post is appropriately titled, Deck the Halls Inspired Holiday Makeup Tutorial!

How to recreate the Deck the Halls Holiday Inspired Makeup look:

  1. Apply a white base to your lids and brow bone and then top the brow bone with a pale cream beige shimmer shadow.
  2. Sweep a coppery-red into your crease and blend up and out.
  3. Tap a gold pigment onto your lids.
  4. Line your upper lash line and extend out with an emerald green liquid liner.
  5. Line your lower lash line with a soft green cream pencil and extend out below the emerald liner and towards your temples.
  6. Smooth a bright green shadow on top of the cream pencil and let the colour fade outwards.
  7. Apply wispy lashes and mascara
  8. Apply foundation and concealer, then do some soft contouring with cream to your cheek bones.
  9. Add a golden bronze powder below your cheek bones and a soft champagne beige highlight to the tops of your cheeks.
  10. Add a rosy blush to your cheeks and blend outward into the bronzer and highlighter.
  11. Line your lips with red liner and fill in with a scarlet red lipstick. Then dab a gold shadow on the center of your lower lip.
  12. Optional: Add some sequins or festive decorations to your face for some fun!
