The year of goat is gradually coming to its end, yielding its positions to funny and playful monkey, which means that along with doing shopping, selecting delicious recipes for new dishes, planning the exterior and interior decorations of your house, you are also so very much keyed up about your own festive appearance. Deciding upon what jaw-dropping dress you will be wearing and what shoes you will match it with is not yet sufficient. No less important is your party makeup look, which should be in keeping with the holistic Christmas atmosphere. Glittering Christmas wreaths and garlands, iridescent playful lights and sparkling snowflakes falling down are just demanding that you follow our Christmas glitter makeup tutorial that will make you just another stunning decoration for the holidays.
Our step-by-step tutorial will lead you to crazy and unique color combinations. Your face will become that very canvas to synthesize cognac brown with metallic blue shades, while the words “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!” will sound with a lot more magnificence while uttered from those ultra-pink matte-effect lips. So if you are really in the mood to go all festive and glittering for the upcoming Christmastime, here is what products you should put into use and what steps you should take to come up as a glittering princess:
• Makeup primer, foundation
• Eyebrow pencil
• Eyelid primer
• Gel eyeliner in black and deep green
• Eyeshadows in matte orange soda, burned orange brown, cognac and soft gold
• Metallic blue pigment
• Black mascara
• False eyelashes
• Ultra pink lipstick
• Makeup brushes
Step 1: In winter when your skin is under the risk to get frostbitten and gives birth to some red spots quite often, you need to cover all your face with protective and enlightening foundation over your favorite primer, while a golden glow on your cheeks will drop a hint that Christmas time is on.
Step 2: So as to make your eyebrows look super polished and even and to make them a wee bit bushy just in consonance with the extravagant makeup trend of 2016, contour them with an eyebrow pencil (Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Ebony). Pass to your eyelids covering them with an eyelid primer (Too Faced Shadow Insurance) creating a basis for flawless eye makeup.
Step 3: Start the process of making your eyes look like realistic fire flames by pulling together all the brown-orange shades. Primarily, apply a light matte eyeshadow (Orange Soda from ABH) to the high crease of your lid, afterwards a little bit lower in the crease apply a matte burned orange brown eyeshadow (Sienna from ABH). Finally, apply a cognac eyeshadow (Cognac from ABH) all over the lid, that way once more emphasizing your flaming mood.
Step 4: Make your eyes more impressive by applying a black eyeliner gel using a small brush (Sigma Wicked Gel Eyeliner and E06 Brush). Make a very thin line across the roots of your lashes and create a wing at the outer corner of your eye. Do not stop here, extend the line reaching the lower lash line and stop it half way.
Step 5: Now it is high time to make your lower eyelids also glitter in all their glory. Apply a soft gold eyeshadow (Surface of the Sun from ABH) to the first part of your lower lid, going ahead and covering the whole lower eyelid with the same cognac eyeshadow. A blue metallic pigment (Inglot Stardust pigment #113) applied to the inner corner of the eye will wholly enlighten your look giving you some electrified vibes.
Step 6: Every time an eyeliner gel used is other than black, we want to look at it over and over again. The same will happen with your guests when they see the deep green gel eyeliner on your eyes. Apply this exotic shaded gel eyeliner and extend the line under the black winged eyeliner, so that the wing becomes an effective amalgam of black-green.
Step 7: To give your eyes a wide-open look apply a few layers of black mascara on your lashes and if you are aspiring to give them some extra volume and thickness, you can use false eyelashes (House of Lashes in Iconic).
Step 8: What is left to you now is to add the finishing and the most vibrant touch to your whole Christmas glitter makeup. Coat your lips with an electric pink lipstick (this is optional) and brighten up not only the atmosphere but also the spirits of others.
