Hey guys! I've always liked Christmas but I've never been more excited about it than I am this year. I think it's the kids (our circle has gotten HUGE between us, my fiance's family and friends having kids) that are bringing the spirit back. Hunter is so excited for "Ho Ho" to come! We've started traditions (like cutting down our own tree on seemingly the coldest day ever for the second year in a row) and are hosting Christmas Eve again this year!

Anywho, I've been inspired to create a few holiday looks this year! I'm being ambitious with two kids but hey, 'tis the season! This look features a dark lip (my fave!) and a smokey burgundy eye. 

My "what do you mean there's no more tacos left?" face.
  • FACE: Urban Decay Skin Perfector in Light is my absolute favorite thing ever right now and it's all I ever wear. It's enough coverage to smooth everything out but still let my skin breathe. It Cosmetics CC+ Concealer in Light is used to cover my super-duper dark circles and then set with Laura Mercier Brightening Powder. I used the Smashbox MasterClass 3 Palette's bronzer, contour and blush for this look. Highlighter in Urban Decay Highlighter in Sin.
  • EYES: MAC Paint Pot in Painterly as a base, per usual. Then I used Makeup Geek's Steampunk on the lid (LOVE this shade!), Bedrock in the crease and Americano mixed in the crease as well as on the outer V and lower lid. tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara and then Ardell Wispies for my falsies. Brows are Full Brow wax and powder.
  • LIPS: ColourPop Matte Lippie in Notion (one of my top 5 fave dark lipsticks!)

Will be back in a few days for the next (super easy!) tutorial!
