I know the holidays have passed but I still wanted to share the makeup looks I created during the holidays so as to document this time of once again finding myself and to inspire others because these looks can be worn almost year long in the right circumstances.
I had 3 major holiday events: Christmas eve, New Years eve, and a friends wedding. I did 3 very glam but very incredible looks that I hope you will all enjoy: bronze smokey eye, classic smokey eye, and blue/silver eye look. Bronze is the only one I lost the best pic but I will still show you. Let me know if you would like tutorials of these or at least more in depth info on how to recreate them.
Bronze smokey eye:
This look was inspired by the bronze Maybelline Color Tattoo Liquid Chrome. I knew I was wearing a cream colored dress and I needed to dress it up. While thinking of what I could do and what colors to use I went to look for glitters or metallic pigments at Walgreens. I fell in love with the bronze en decided that would be the one to use. On the night of Christmas Eve I did my makeup thinking of that makeup look and this is what I came up with. I really enjoyed it and I got a lot of compliments on my makeup. Let me know if you would like tutorials of any of these!

Mac lashes with HOL glue
Charcoal Grey Smokey Eye:
This look I wore to a friends’ wedding and I really wanted to do a dark grey and black smokey eye. This is my ultimate favorite makeup to do, I love smokey eyes. They are so flattering on me, make my eyes look bigger and give the appearance of a better, almosnd shaped eye. This look came out way better than I expected and it definitely caught a lot of people’s attention.This one was definitely very sexy, sultry, and sassy all in one and I can’t wait to wear it again.

Blue and Silver smokey eye:
And finally the look I had been planning for weeks on end. From the skirt, to the top, shoes, and makeup, New Year’s Eve was the night I was looking forward to the most. Even though we were going for a chill NYE with the family, I was so excited to put this whole look together. I love the way it came out and it was a hit with all my family. My only complaint, was the Kiss Lashes were SO VERY uncomfortable, so they did not last long. Everything else I can’t wait to use again.
