Holiday look 5: oh Christmas Tree!

I would be remiss if I did a bunch of Holiday looks and go without a true red and green look.  Pulling off red and green makeup together can be triiiiiicky and can quickly turn taaaaacky.  I think I avoided the tack, but I’ll let you decide.

When you want to go all out and use all the Christmas colors, this is your look!


Face Primer: Smashbox photo finish foundation primer and smashbox photo finish hydrating under eye primer

Concealer: maybelline age rewind in light

Foundation: Covergirl simply ageless foundation

Contour: NYX 3 steps to sculpt palette  (just a tiny touch in the hollows of my cheekbones)

Bronzer: Tarte Park Ave Princess bronzer

Blush: Tarte Amazonian clay blush in paaarty

Highlight: smashbox spotlight palette in pearl

Brows: elf brow pencil and nyx tinted brow mascara in blonde

Eye primer: wet n wild photofocus eyeshadow primer

Mascara: L’Oreal lash paradise mascara

Liner: Skipped the liner on my upper lid to let that green shadow on the lower lid do all the talking!

Eye Shadows: I first covered the lid with the Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in Jinxie, and then I topped that with just a little bit of the Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in Telepathy (which has a bit of a green/ yellow undertone).  For under the eyes, I used a dark green smudged all across, and then topped with a brighter and shimmery green.  All the greens are from the Morphe x KathleenLights palette which sadly isn’t available anymore, but you can create this look with any green!

Lipstick: Smashbox chrome lipstick in crimson (So this color is amazing, and it feels sooooooo nice on the lips, but within about 4 hours of wear, it started shifting on my lips, settling into the lines around my mouth and in the corners 🙁 Sadly I think I’ll be taking it back and will continue on with my goal of finding the absolute best red lip!)
