The confetti has fallen but I am still in a holiday state of mind. The end of the holiday season is always a tough one. Suddenly, you are forced back into the regular day to day routine. There are bills to pay, responsibilities to think about, and to-do lists to tackle. That is why I have been keeping the seasonal spirit alive with my makeup routine. I have been doing this by adding in a little glitz and glam!
Recently, I decided to create a makeup look around a newer item in my collection. It is the Wet n' Wild Color Icon Glitter Single in Spiked. As you can see from the picture above, this is essentially a silver glitter eyeshadow. When I bought it, I assumed that it would be a powder product. However, this has a creamy, almost wet consistency. At first I wasn't sure how it would work in terms of application - but it did a great job of putting the colour and shimmer right where I wanted it.
To go with this shimmery silver shadow? I used a burgundy shadow on the lid, a hint of black in the crease, some liquid liner, my favourite mascara, a pale pink blush, and a nude gloss on the lips to finish it all off. This was my way of bringing a little warmth to winter makeup. Are you ready to see my holiday inspired makeup look? Here it is....
Flower Beauty foundation, Rimmel 3-in-1 bronzer, Wet n' Wild Glittery Eyeshadow, Makeup Forever Diamond Shadow, Hard Candy Walk The Liner liquid liner, Benefit They're Real! mascara, Benefit Pose Tint lip and cheek stain, NARS lipgloss in Turkish Delight.
Whether the holiday season is in full swing or things are over and done with....makeup is a great way to have fun and get creative. This silvery shadow inspired me to do something different and wave goodbye to Christmas and New Years.
Are you sad that the holidays are over? What do you think of this makeup look?
