Are you guys ready for the Holiday season?! For those of you who are celebrating Christmas, I hope you’ll enjoy this Christmas Makeup tutorial! This is a makeup collaboration with fellow Indonesian Beauty Bloggers – Feegy from Muses Wonderland, Chell from Polish Wonderland, and myself (not from any wonderland *wink* hahaha). So, don’t forget to check their tutorial out!
We collaborated in creating a Christmas look with a little bit of glitter ya’know, because it’s Christmas! We need glitters, hon! Sparkles everywhere! Feegy created a silver glitter smoky eyes, and Chell went on the nude glitter eyes. For me, I went all out with green, gold and glitters! Hey, it’s Christmas, I might as well make full use of all the Christmas colors!
For my look, even though it’s pretty bold and colorful, it is still wearable if you aren’t afraid of colors. The placement of the colors are quite important so you don’t go looking all crazy, you get what I’m saying? Instead of green, gold and glitter everywhere, I focused these 3 products on specific location on my eyes. This way, the colors work well together, and you don’t look like a glittery mess.
The green is located on the center of the eyelids only so that when you blink, that gorgeous color will pop along with a teensy bit of crushed metallic pigment. You can use glitter if you don’t have the crushed pigment. The gold glitter is on the inner half of the lower lid, this will brighten and open up your eyes.
The key is to apply the bright color and glitter lightly. Notice I used my finger to apply the green shade, I also use my finger just to press the crushed pigment very lightly all over my lid. This way, the colors and glitters aren’t all over the place. By combining bright colors with neutrals, your whole look will be pulled together.
My eyelids are prepped using Urban Decay Primer Potion.
1. I applied Urban Decay Buck eyeshadow above my crease, as my transition color, using a crease blending brush.
2. Using Smashbox bullet crease brush, I applied Kat Von D Shadow Box (Monarch palette) on the outer and inner V of the eyes.
3. I applied MUFE Aqua Cream no. 52 on the center of my eyelid using my ring finger.
4. Using the same ring finger, I VERY lightly tapped MAC Metallic Crushed Pigment in Moss Garden all over my lid. I just want a little bit of the crushed metallic pigment for shine, not for the color.
5. I lined my upper lash line using Kat Von D Trooper eyeliner. On the waterline, I applied MAC Smolder kohl eyeliner.
6. On the lower lash line, I applied PAC eyeliner liquid in Bazaar Gold on the inner half. On the outer half, I applied Kat Von D Deadhead eyeshadow (Monarch palette) using a smudger brush.
7. Using the same smudger brush as step no. 5, I applied whatever was left on that brush on the outer and inner V of my eyes (on top of Shadow Box), just to add a bit of depth.
8. I applied Gwiyomi Annabelle lashes for extra drama.
9. I filled my brows using Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Taupe and Brunette.
10. On my face, I applied Diorskin Star foundation using Real Technique foundation brush.
11. I also applied MAC Pro Long-Wear concealer under my eyes, and any areas I need to cover.
12. I set my face using CoverFX Translucent powder.
13. I applied Smashbox bronzing powder from the contour kit to warm my face up slightly. Then, I applied Chanel Blush de Horizon on my cheeks.
14. On my lips, I lined and filled it with MAC Brick lip pencil. Then, I applied OCC Vintage lip tar on top of it.
