Holiday look (green eyes, brown lips)

fullsizerender-66img_3841

This is one of my  go to looks for the holidays. Green represents the christmas trees and it is also one of my favourite colours. I tried to make this look achievable and very wearable as well. If you think the eyes are bold enough then you can wear a more subtle colour on the lips.

How to achieve this look:

Always make sure you cleanse, moisturise and prime your skin before any makeup application, this is important as you are protecting your skin as well as providing a great canvas for your makeup.

For foundation i used the Estee Lauder double wear, i love using this foundation as it last for hours, it has great coverage, it doesn’t transfer and it looks beautiful on the skin. As per usual i used Mac Mineralise skinfinish to set and lock the foundation in place. I didn’t contour as i wanted to keep the face quite simple as the eyes and lips would be standing out. However i did highlight very slightly using LA Girls pro concealer in Fawn and Sacha buttercup powder to set the concealer so it doesn’t budge!

For the eyes, i used the Shany 7 layer Masterpiece, if you don’t own this makeup kit, i highly recommend it, it has beautiful eyeshadows that blend easily and are also pigmented, it has a concealer palette, blush palette and lipstick palette, this would make a perfect Christmas gift for someone who loves makeup. I used a mixture of the greens, which resulted in this eye look. Then used a gold shadow to place in my inner tear ducts to make me look more awake. I used some of the green to sweep onto my bottom lash line ever so slightly.

As for the lips i used this gorgeous brown shade from Colourpop called Limbo. If i’ve missed anything out, feel free to click on the video and see how i achieve the entire look.

Thanks for stopping by, if you try this look let me know.

Love, Shaunz xo
