I thought it would be fun to do a makeup look for the holidays. This look is inexpensive and can be easily recreated in just a few minutes. Megan from Diary of this Girl helped assist me in getting ready. She is an expert at applying false lashes and wears them on the daily #glamourgirl. This will be a two part post; first with the makeup, then the final look. Both Megan and I will be modeling our holiday outfits in Thursday’s post.
I lined my bottom lashes with MAC Technakohl Liner. Next came the Smashbox Photo Op Trio, applying the lightest shade (vanilla) from lash line to brow bone, then adding the color Sable across the lid, and lastly applying the darkest shade Sumatra to contour and add to the crease.
Then I swiped one coat of Diorshow Lash-Extension Effect Volume Mascara to the upper lashes.
For the final touch I used Ardell’s Double Up Lashes. Megan took the lead on this one. She cut the lashes to fit my eyes and bent them to fit. She then added the glue to the base of the lashes and carefully applied them to my lash line.
Voila! Voluptuous beautiful lashes! If you wanted to take it a step further you could apply some liquid liner or a glittery one to the upper lash line. I had planned to do this step but was happy with just the falsies.
For lipstick I went with L’oreal Color Riche Blake. This color may be still available in stores, but I had trouble tracking it down online. Another great alternative is Wet n Wild Stoplight Red for < $3. You can see it in this post.
Megan is covering her makeup details as well. Take a look!
Don’t forget to stop back on Thursday for our holiday outfits! Thanks so much for reading.
