Tis the season to be jolly! Falalalalalalalala!
Christmas is definitely in the air! Can you feel it in the cold breeze? In just a few days, we will be able to smell and taste it too, from the puto bumbong, bibingka, hot chocolate and salabat that would be a hit come Misa de Gallo/simbang gabi. ☺
I came up with a holiday look that involves cranberry and gold! Like many others, I think that festive glittery shades are so in this season! While you were too shy to whip out those sparkly eyeshadows on ordinary days, now is the time to rock them! I’m not too sure about wearing it outside of parties or nights out with the girls, but to heck with it, if you really want to then why not?
The photos here were taken late in the afternoon, so I apologize if the make up is not as true to color and vibrant as it is in person. But I was nasayangan (and lazy to redo it haha) so I went ahead and let vanity take over. 😛
|BAD SKIN! ARGH! hehe
|For the eyes, I used Virginia Olsen eyeshadow in Bronze Sparkle (which to me is my kind of gold rather than the brighter and yellower ones), the eyelid shade from Wet n Wild Knock on Wood palette (a reddish plum/cranberry shade), a white and a light yellow e/s from two Majolica Majorca e/s palettes (brow bone and inner corners respectively), and Ever Bilena mousse e/s in Amber for the lower lash line.
I didn’t have a cranberry lip color and originally wanted to buy one, but I promised myself I won’t buy makeup (except for just one more lipstick that’s gonna arrive next week, that MAC Rebel dupe from WnW) anymore this year as a discipline and sacrifice for the season. So, I used MAC Russian Red instead and then followed up with Revlon lip butter in Fig Jam (a very nice reddish brown) to do this cranberry red lip (brown tint more obvious in person)!
For the cheeks, I applied my trusty Ever Bilena Raisin blush which is my third pan actually. 😀
This look is perfect when you want to look NAUGHTY.. (lolzwhutz at this photo haha)
…or NICE (if you wanna make it on Santa’s list)! Just change the lip color.
This bronzy brown lip color was achieved by using Revlon Fig Jam and Mary Kay Coral Carribean lipgloss. Another option is to use NYX Copper Penny l/g (won this from Jannie’s Tumblr giveaway!).
