Holiday Makeup How-to: A Shimmery Wintery Winterland

When it comes to beauty, the holidays are the most fun and festive time of the year! Who can resist a set of glittery lids or a pair of cherry red lips? For the holidays, I usually like to go with warmer colors like gold, but this time I’m taking an icy approach to my holiday look.

I know the holidays are a time when we spend quite a bit of money, so I was on the hunt for a palette that wouldn’t put a huge dent in my pocketbook. I picked up the Sephora Collection IT Palette in the glitter version. These colors are beyond amazing! You’ve got a nice selection of warms and cools, vibrant and neutral, and lots of shimmery shades to create several different looks.

I loved the blues, pinks, and purples in this palette so I decided to go with a really cool color scheme, accentuating the look with a touch of silver on the bottom lash line.

To create this look, I used:

  • Make Up For Ever HD Foundation in 123 (not shown)
  • Givenchy Mister Light Corrective Pen #3 (not shown)
  • Sigma Eyeshadow Base in Pose
  • Sephora Collection Jumbo Liner in Dark Taupe Shimmer
  • Sephora Collection IT Palette – Glitter
  • MAC Fix+ Spray (you can also use plain water!)
  • Inglot Matte Gel Eyeliner
  • House of Lashes "Noir Fairy"
  • Eyeko Black Magic Mascara
  • theBalm Instain Blush in Argyle
  • Dose of Colors Lipgloss in Petals
