Easy Glitter Festive Eye Makeup Look.

Today I wanted to share a really easy glitter festive eye makeup look for those of you that might have some holiday parties coming up, or maybe you’re like me and just feel like upping the glitter factor for the holidays. Either way, this look is so simple and can be switched out for different colors and glammed up with major eyeliner and lashes.

This look is sooooo easy ladies! You can add a winged liner and lashes if you're wearing these eyeshadows to a holiday party or keep it low key like I did with just the shadows and natural lashes. Up to you!

Here’s how I got the look…

I primed my eyes with my Au Naturale Foundation stick and then “set” it by going all over the lid and blending out into the crease and up with Morphe ES13 Deep Skin with a blending brush.

Then, I applied the purple color from Pop Beauty Twinkle Texture with my finger. These colors are SOOOO buttery and easy to blend. With this kind of creamy formula I like to apply all over the lid with my finger and then blend out with the brush I used originally to make sure the golden nude color and this purple are seamless.

I added a few layers of the purple and more Deep Skin for blending and depth to get it just right.

Next I added highlight with the white color from the Twinkle Texture palette in the inner corner and Morphe Petals on the brow bone.

I then did my brows, concealer, setting powder, contour, and blush. I added highlight on the apples of my cheeks, nose bone, and above the brows. I used Morphe Petals on the apples of my cheeks and Lustrous everywhere else.

Under the eye I packed on the purple eyeshadow with a thin eye brush and then blended it out with Morphe Deep Skin. Then, VERY carefully, I added the purple glitter from the Twinkle Texture palette under each eye. I might try with my finger next time and see if it takes less packing to get the desired effect, because that works best on my upper eyelid, but I was trying to be precise so I was using a thin brush.

I finished off by curling my lashes and adding mascara top and bottom. I let it dry and repeat once or twice to get them nice and curled.

Christmas 2014! ♡

Dave and I had such a wonderful Christmas here in Knoxville, Tennessee with his family. My favorite thing (besides seeing everyone) about spending Christmas with his family is watching our nephews experience Christmas. They are 7 and 3 this year and it's so much fun seeing the magic of the season through their eyes.

My poor Mother-in-Law had pneumonia, the flu, and a sinus infection the whole week (and Christmas Eve is her Birthday), but other than family members dropping like flies from the flu our holiday was pretty uneventful...in a good way. I, as usual, took way too many pictures so I wanted to share some of my favorites here.

I know posts have been spotty, at best, since we left Alaska...not sure if anyone has missed them. But I'll be back to regular posting now! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas too...
