Festive Thanksgiving Makeup

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

Hey guys! Today I'm sharing the makeup look that I'm doing for Thanksgiving. I decided to go with a pink toned brown smoky eye with gold because my outfit for the day will be a pretty red dress. It's a great look for the holidays because the colors are very festive and sparkly and can really be used or modified for any sort of outfit or party!

For the majority of this look I used Urban Decay's Naked 3 palette because it has great warm and pink toned colors.

To Create This Look:

1. Start off by priming your eyes with your favorite primer {I used the L'Oreal De-Crease Primer - my favorite}
2. Pat 'Buzz' from the Urban Decay Naked 3 across your whole lid {it's a deep shimmery pink and by patting this across your whole lid, it will really shine through the rest of the shadow we put on, really encapsulating that pink toned look I want}
3. Darken the crease using 'Mugshot' {this will add that brown, smoky definition into the crease}
4. Pat 'Trick' across your lid {this is a deep gold shade, with pink undertones, it looks totally perfect for the holiday season}
5. Darken up the crease with 'Darkside' {this is a shade darker than 'Mugshot', so we're just taking a shade that's darker and deepening our crease}
6. Pat 'Liar' across the outer your part of the lid {this is a cranberry/brown shimmer shade and will finally darken up the entire look}
7. For a final bit of definition, take the slightest bit of 'Blackheart' into your crease, bringing it down to your lower lash line to balance the look and define your lower lash line {this is a dark, pink toned shade, that's super pigmented and gorgeous. It'll add the last bit of definition we want}

8. Line your lid very lightly, using whatever liner you want {I went in with Maybelline's Eye Stuido Lasting Gel Liner because I wanted something to stay put all day on the copious amount of shadow I used. Using 'Blackheart' or a dark shadow across the top lash line works perfectly too}
9. Get that mascara on your eyes {I used the Maybelline Rocket Volum Express and then went over it with Too Faced's Better Than Sex}
10. The last step for me is adding lipstick. This is a definite optional step, but I wanted just a bit of color on my lips. {I used YSL's Rouge Volupte Shine in #1 - Nude Beige - which was a great nudey pink shade since my eyes were so dark}

Do you like how it turned out? What is your go-to Thanksgiving makeup?
