Holiday Makeup Challenge (9 of 30)

11 Dec

We can’t have “Naughty” without a little “Nice”


30 Days of Holiday Makeup Challenge. Day 9 of 30. I’m calling this one “Nice”


Naughty and Nice.

Does anyone prefer one look over the other? I’m partial to naughty.

For nice, I wanted a natural look, but with a little bit of an edge (hence the mini wing). I thought about doing a more wintery lip color -like a burgundy or a red, but I just stuck with a natural pink to give it that ALMOST “no makeup makeup” look.


It’s hard to tell, but I used a muted lilac purple in the crease and a shimmery cream and shimmery taupe on the lid. On fair to light skin, I love using muted lilac purple in the crease. It’s subtle to look very natural, but that extra bit of color really makes the eyes pop! For deeper skin tones, I would just use a deeper purple with brown tones.

*I’m taking these pictures with my Iphone, so sometimes it’s hard to get a shot that isn’t blurry. I’m trying really hard though guys!

Thanks for stopping by to read my blog! Please comment!

I want to hear your thoughts. Do you like the makeup? Should I try something else? Is there a look or color you are dying to see on someone’s face?
