Happy New Year!
The festive season means plenty of parties so here is my festive look for the season.
I love anything maroon as it just reminds me of christmas. Its a bold colour that works well for all skin types and can be easily dressed up or down.
I began by priming my eyes with Urban Decay’s primer potion and began by applying the first shade from the Urban Decay’s Naked 3 palette, ‘Strange‘, all over my lids. Using Makeup Revolutions ‘I heart chocolate’ palette, I used the shade ‘What a way to go’ which is a gorgeous maroon colour, in the corner of my eye and crease. I blended this out with a fluffy brush to really create the smokey effect. Using a smaller detail brush I applied the shade ‘Love Torn’, which is a red/brown colour, in my crease and outer V, I then used another fluffy brush to blend this all together.
Using Ted Baker’s gold eyeliner, I lined my bottom lashes to add some sparkle and pop to compliment the festive deep red colours.
I then used Ted Baker’s liquid eyeliner in Black to line my upper lash line into a winged look. I use small strokes to get the perfect and precise detail. Once finished, I curled my lashes and applied my favourite mascara, Max Factor’s max volume and high definition mascara, making sure to get right to the base of my lashes to lengthen them further.
Voila! The look is complete! It’s as simple as that…
