Holiday Makeup Challenge (5 of 30)

7 Dec

30 Days of Holiday Makeup (Day 5 of 30). I’m calling this one “Sugar Plum”

Here is one of the sparkly looks that I have planned for the 30 Days of Holiday Makeup. After all, it isn’t the Holiday Season without a little sparkle or glitter, right? I got my inspiration from sugar plum jelly candies. And the glitter I used was so easy to apply. I used the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter. All you have to do is brush it on! It comes in a bunch of great colors. For this look I used both the gold and the silver. Their gold is more of a cool gold, so it’s pretty close to a silver color.


Sugar plums!


Don’t you just love this lip color? It’s a Nars Audacious lipstick called Dominique. It’s lovely creamy opaque matte lipstick.

I would say that this lip color isย  universally flattering. For deeper skin tones, I would definitely use a brown toned lip liner and apply the color conservatively, then blend the two together.


One way to do a winged liner to to have the wing follow your lower lash line.


Yes, I’ll admit they’re fake. ๐Ÿ˜› These lashes are the Adrell Curvy lashes. I should have pinched my faux lashes with my real lashes better to avoid that runaway lash on the upper lash line.

If you want to use this look for day time, I would either change the crease color to a neutral color, like brown or just kill the crease all together and just have the lid color fade to nothing.
