Festive Make-Up! Look 1

This time of year it's all about sparkle and shimmer.  I'm fully in the festive spirit!  So I shall share a few festive make up looks to go with Christmas.  I'll start off nice and subtle. Every look will become more dramatic but in keeping with the festive scene so expect to see lots of glitter!

Look 1 

When you think "purple"  you think  " bruise" - that really doesn't have to be the case.  Below is an example of a shimmery purple look that does not look like a punch in the face...unless tinker bell punches with a fist full of her magic dust, then maybe this would be the result!

With the flash.

No flash.

What I used :

  • Urban Decay eye primer potion.
  • Ben Nye Eye shadow in Vanilla  - all over the lid, up just past the crease of the eye socket. (base colour)
  • Nars eye shadow in Daphne  - all over the lid.
  • Bobbie Brown shadow palette  " Black Ruby Sparkle Eye Palette"  using three colours Pink Rose - dusted over all over the  lid on top of Nars Daphne.  Black Ruby - Outer corners and lower lash line  and Crushed Silver -  inner corners and brow bone.
  • Ben Nye eye shadow in Pearl Sheen ( favourite silver eye shadow!) for  inner corners.
  • INGLOT eye shadow  498 ( black shimmer colour) to line the lash line top and bottom.

These Bobbi Brown shades are best used as a ' top layer' shadow, you will need as base colour ( I chose Nars Daphne ) as they need a bit of a boost, add to any look and the shimmer is amazing! 

If anyone has any requests for make up looks please let me know!
