Now! Back to our regularly scheduled programming, kids.
You may have noticed a dearth of posts on this blogs related to the upcoming holiday. No gift idea posts. No dressing idea posts. It’s not because I’m all, “Bah humbug,” but simply because I’m just a Jew, a lonely Jew at Christmas.
Even I, however, get invited to the odd holiday party. In this case, it was my work holiday party.
I absolutely loved the makeup I did that night. Though I absolutely did not get a good photo of it. (WHY AM I SUCH A BAD BLOGGER?!)
But it looked something like this.
So I’m here to give you a step-by-step to the awesome look that I did that you can’t really see. Because I’m thoughtful like that.
A. Start off with whatever foundation/concealer/powder you prefer.
B. Prime your eyes—you’ll be dancing/drinking/sweating/all of the above, and no one wants smudgy, melty eyeshadow while you’re making eyes at the guy from accounting. (Does anyone actually make eyes at people from accounting?) (Sorry if anyone reading this is in accounting. I’m totally making eyes at you right now.)
C. I used (1) MAC Patina eyeshadow all across the lid and just up to under the brow bone. It’s a gorgeous antique gold/bronze color.
G. Use the black liquid eyeliner of your choice and make a small cat eye (the lips are so dramatic, you don’t need much more). Or, if you want it a little less dramatic, use the (3) Beauty Marked eyeshadow with a wet eyeliner brush to line.
J. Okay, then it was time to get cheeky, so I didn’t look like the undead. I’ve been using (7) MAC Powder Blush in Dame A LOT lately. It’s the perfect just pinky flush blush color. It works with red lipsticks like a charm, which I wouldn’t have ever thought. (Pink with red?! Trust me, it works.)
