Let It Sparkle!

Christmas is fast approaching and I couldn't pass the opportunity to do a sparkly liner look for Christmas makeup look. I actually wore this yesterday, when I went shopping. I think a few of the sales people noticed my sparkly eyes, but no one actually said anything. They probably thought I was already embracing the Christmas spirit a bit too much.

I started my eye shadow look with a primer and bone colored matte base. Then I used very light warm matte brown to carve out the crease. I deepened the crease with warm matte brown. On the lid I applied matte orange red shade.

I darkened inner corners with a matte chocolate brown. Over the redish base I applied a sheer shimmery shade that gives off golden green sheen. I just used warm redish base to create a warm base underneath. On the lower lash line I applied the same light matte brown. Around the lash line I applied shimmery medium green shade and I darkened outer corners with a shimmery dark forest green shade.

For my eyeliner, I went strong and did a wing with a pen liquid liner. To add some of that sparkle that shouldn't be missing on Christmas, I added shimmery gold liner on top of it. Unfortunately this created a bit of chunks, but I don't mind. It looked prettier in person.

I finished with lots of volumizing mascara and a light golden highlight in the inner corners. Later I also decided that this look needs a bit of false lashes, so I added a few individual ones mainly to the outer corners.

I also applied my usual foundation, concealer and powder. This time I also contoured my cheeks just a tiny bit and added bronzer on the outer edges. I also used a creamy sheer golden highlight on top of foundation and I also went over it with a powder light golden highlight on the cheeks. For the blush I went with a muddy looking peach shade.

You can wear this look with nude lips to keep all the attention on the eyes, like I did here. I used a mix of light nude peach and brown matte lipstick.

Or you can pair it with a classic creamy red lipstick as I did here. Red lipstick is just perfect for a Christmas makeup looks. It brights us any skin tone and matches you to your Christmas tree - well at least in my case.

I love those sparkly eyes. Light catches all the sparkles and it even looks really pretty on slightly hooded eyes. It's also not too bright, so a red lip matches it well.
