The holidays are upon us, which means it’s time to socialize with friends and family and get into the holiday spirit! This week in the blog, we have put together a holiday makeup tutorial so you can look glamorous for any festive event or celebration this time of year.
Step 1: Picture Perfect Skin
To begin our holiday glam, let’s begin with our Be Picture Perfect Foundation. This 12-Hour Demi-Matte foundation helps to cover any imperfections while concealing uneven texture on the skin. Be Picture Perfect is formulated with gentle, hydrating ingredients such as shea butter and green tea leaf extract to help improve skin’s appearance with each use. Apply the foundation directly onto your foundation brush of choice until you achieve your desired coverage.
Step 2: Set It and Forget It
To set the foundation, apply our Translucent Veil Setting Powder all over the face with a fluffy brush to create a silky-matte, translucent finish on the skin. Translucent Veil is formulated with green tea and vitamin E to help conceal imperfections while minimizing the look of pores to help firm skin and hide any imperfections.
Step 3: Add Some Color
Add dewy color to the cheeks with Face Paint Lip & Cheek Tint. Available in three different shades, Face Paint provides long-lasting color to the cheeks and lips. Formulated with vitamin E and essential oils, this creamy blush helps to soften skin while leaving behind a sheen of color. Apply a small amount onto a brush or your fingers and apply to the apple of the cheeks in a soft circular motion.
Step 4: Onto the Eyes
Now that the base is finished, it’s time to move onto the eyes. Using the Jetsetter Palette for Beauty on the Fly, you can create the ultimate holiday glam with the deep matte and skimmer eyeshadow shades. For an easy-to-follow eye look, follow the guide below:
- First, apply shade “Santorini” all over the lid up to the brow bone with a fluffy blending brush.
- Next, apply shade “Venice” on the lid up to the crease with the same fluffy blending brush.
- Using a smaller blending brush, apply shade “Barcelona” to the outer corner of the eyelid.
- With a damp brush or your finger, apply shade “Sonoma” to the eyelid, avoiding the crease.
- For the last step of this holiday glam eyeshadow, apply “Monte Carlo” to the inner corner and brow bone for a pop of highlight with a small blending brush or your finger.
Step 5: Define the Line
Add some drama to your eye with an eyeliner, such as our On the Line Waterproof Eye Pencil in shade black. This ultra-pigmented liner glides smoothly on the eye with a creamy feel and ultimate precision. Simply apply the precise line onto the lash line, extending the line outward from the eyelid to create a wing if desired.
Step 6: Lift Those Lashes!
For the final step of the eye look, apply our Top Shelf Volume + Curl Mascara in a zig-zag motion from the base of the lashes to the tip, reapplying until you have your desired lash. This uniquely curved mascara separates and lifts lashes for maximum volume and a bold and defined look.
Step 7: A Dramatic Lip
This couldn’t possibly be a holiday themed makeup tutorial without including a classic red lip! We love pairing together Aloe Kiss Hydrating Tinted Lip Balm in shade Sparking Rose with Aloe Pout Matte Liquid Lipstick in shade Red Chiffon for a hydrating, long-lasting lip color. Apply Aloe Kiss first as a hydrating base, followed by Aloe Pout for a perfect full-coverage color just in time for the holidays.
