Fresh Holiday Look

Holiday is all about sparkle and glitz. The way the face looks under icicle lights and by the fireplace. Think fresh, and glowing complexion, with bold lips and subtle eyes. This look was inspired by just that. You can get every product except Airspun powder at Sephora.com. Airspun can be found at most drugstores.

For Face I started with the Hourglass No28 primer serum because it is extremely smoothing and hydrating. It will make your skin glow and is perfect for even the most oily and sensitive skin types, but you have to leave it on a bit so it really soaks in. Next I used Kat Von D's new foundation. It is a FULL coverage foundation and is a little difficult to work with normally because it sets on your face very quick. I worked in small sections first painting it on and then buffing it in to get a soft, powdered look. I use my fav concealer from Cover FX under and around my eyes, and then pressed on Airspun powder to set the whole face. For my blush I used YSL blush in berry plum sheen to give me a lightly shimmered flushed look. Lastly, my lips are an Urban Decay lipstick called Gash. You can't buy it at Sephora anymore because I think it's discontinued, but try eBay or Amazon. It is worth it. For a similar color I found Givenchy has a shade called Rouge Cancan I believe.
For Eyes I wanted to keep it very simple. I went to my YSL Chromatics shadows in  06 because they look like metal when applied wet. They come with a little rubbery applicator which is perfect for the wet application. So I used the soft gold shadow all over the lid, in the crease, and under the eye. I went back and swiped a light, dry layer above the crease to soften and blend it. Then I used my Tarte lash primer like I always do, and went over that with Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes mascara. Always shape or shade your brows. ALWAYS! I have bright red hair and I use Urban Decay's 24/7 lip liner in Gash when I want them to match.
 
TADA! My finished Holiday look topped off with a vintage hounds tooth blazer with black faux fur trim and wide belt. Enjoy!
