A Little Holiday Sparkle


Happy Holidays, everyone!!
I hope you are well and enjoying every bit of the holiday season!

I love how versatile holiday makeup can be. Anything goes!
For this look I wanted something sweet and shimmery with a bit of color. 

The lashes I used are very festive!  They are flicked with gold glitter, and quite precious.
Hope you like it!



 


For this look, I predominately used colors from my Coastal Scents Original 88 Palette.

 EYES:

♥ Urban Decay Primer Potion
♥ Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Yogurt to lid
♥ Vanilla colored shadow from crease to brow bone
♥  Light pink shadow to inner corner
♥ Deep purple shadow to crease and lower lash line
 ♥ Soft pink shadow to blend purple up and out towards brow
♥ Magenta shadow to lid
♥ Stila gold loose powder (Shade 2) dusted on lid to add shimmer
I also used this on my lower inner corner as well
♥ Nyx Jumbo pencil in Milk to waterline
♥ Black mascara and eyeliner
Elise Lashes in #017. They are stunners!



BLUSH:
♥ Ulta Powder Blush in Afterglow


LIPS:

♥ Twilight Beauty Femme Fatale Lip Gloss in Butterfly Kisses
This is a sheer pink tinted gloss with rose colored sparkle.





AND if the mood strikes you, wear this with a bold lip color! Don't fret, my sweet bold-lipped ladies!!


Thank you again for stopping by!  I truly treasure your communication and enthusiasm for makeup!

Much love from my family to yours this holiday season!
Blessings to you :-)
xoxo,
Colleen
