Easy Holiday makeup look

Easy Holiday makeup look

Hello Ladies! Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We did, My mom lives up in Sacramento so we drove up there for the Thanksgiving Holiday. It was really nice and we escaped the heat here in LA. It’s always nice to see my mom. She’s been living there for 5 years so it hasn’t been easy having her away from us. Praying she comes back to LA soon.

So who is done with their Christmas shopping?! I’m not, I haven’t even put a dent in my list. But I’ll get there. I have a few fun post in the next couple weeks to get us Holiday ready! So keep a look out and subscribe to my Blog if you haven’t already! And thank you to those who already have and keep coming back every Wednesday! Big hugs to you all!

Ok so I’m going to walk you through this really easy holiday look. I’m no makeup artist and I just recently got more comfortable with eyeshadow. So this is pretty simple. Hope you ladies enjoy and recreate this look! Let’s get started!

First I start with a clean and moisturized face. I always prime my face as well especially if I want my makeup to last. With this look I wanted a really fresh skin look. I used my Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, I really like this product. very light weight on my skin.

Second I concealed my under eye area. I’m more of a concealer person over foundation. So my concealer has to be full coverage. I’ve been using NARS matte concealer. I love the finish and the way it wears all day. I do set the areas I conceal very lightly because I do like a luminous look. Setting powder I normally use is Ben Nye banana powder.

Third I start my eyeshadow. For this look I did use the Mario Palette from Anastasia Beverly hills I know this palette is no longer available. So pretty much any neutral palette will work. For my crease I used LULA very lightly and I blended really good. I also took a little more of LULA and darkened the outer corner. For my Lid I used this Elf Cosmetics liquid eyeshadow in Rose Gold. It was my first time using this and I really liked the way it looked. I took the same brush with LULA on it and cleaned up any harsh lines on the lid and crease. That’s it so simple.

fourth was bronzer I like this one from The balm for a more natural bronzer look. I didn’t even contour for this look. just a little bronzer.

Fifth was blush My go to Blush is from colourPop cosmetics. For the price it’s my favorite blush for an everyday look. It’s the color Between the sheets.

sixth you can’t complete a holiday look without some highlight. my go to highlight is Becca Cosmetics Opal. My favorite.

Last to finish this look off. A little setting spray and topped my lips with Mac cosmetics lip liner in Cherry and ColourPop Cosmetics liquid lipstick in Arriba! I do have eyelash extensions. So I don’t wear mascara. If you don’t have extensions I would top it off with some mascara and some very natural false eyelashes.

Hope you ladies enjoyed this easy makeup look! Till next post! Have a great rest of the week and Weekend!

*Since The palette I used is no longer available here is a good neatral palette to have.

Hello Ladies! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! My weekend was very nice spent with family. Today I wanted to share my go to no-makeup look, Lol! This is my go to when I’m running errands during the week and I have about 10 minutes to look like a human. I’m no makeup professional, So for me skin care is most important. I probably wear makeup 2-3 times a week so having nice skin helps. That’s why I really maintain a healthy skin regimen. I’ll walk you all through what I do to get a healthy looking no-makeup look. This look I use no foundation!

1st: I wash my face and moisturize with face lotion that has an SPF.

2nd: I spray my face with my favorite Mario Badescu rose-water spray and add some Mac essential oil this may not be for everyone so it’s just an extra step since my face is more dry.

3rd: Add some primer to give your skin a smooth finish. I use smash box hydrating primer, I love it!

4th: fill in my thin eyebrows, I talked about my favorite eyebrow pencil in my favorites under $20 post.

5th: Conceal these Mama bags and any redness I may have, which is mostly around my nose. I’m loving Nars soft matte complete concealer I use medium 1 custard. It’s my favorite at the moment. I do set any areas I conceal.

6th: I’m a little extra for these next steps I’ll do a light nose contour, I like the Anastasia Beverly hills stick foundation in Fawn. I also add a little liquid highlight on my cheekbones and tip of my nose!

7th: I use a little bronzer and blush for this look I like to use NARS laguna bronzer and Orgasm blush. I’ll also brush a little blush on my nose to look sun-kissed.

8th: Add a little mascara, My favorite is benefits roller lash.

9th: Add your favorite lip gloss or lip stick. I normally top my lips with a clear gloss or Jeffrey star liquid lip in Celebrity skin.

10th: Grab your bag and run your errands!

Hope you lovely ladies have a great week!
