November is here ! With the holiday season coming closer (and my Bday the end of this month ;-) ) , I'm already started to think about my outfits, makeup looks and ....presents :-) !
Every year I try to do something different makeup and hairstyle-wise . Pinterest is a good place to find new makeup looks or you can also get inspiration from fashion magazines. I find that if I narrowed down some looks that will work for me, it's best to try them in advance. Sometimes it takes a bit of practice or finding the right products to recreate a look. But then again, I'm a real makeup addict and any excuse will do for me to play with makeup :-)
Throughout of november, I will show you various makeup looks & hairstyles and I will mention every product I used so you can recreate the exact same look if you want. I've teamed up with some ab fab makeup brands for his mini-series .
Hopefully I can inspire you to pick up your makeup and create the perfect holiday season look!
Remember : it's all about the practice!
The first look is all about that gorgeous blue Estée Lauder eyeshadow Pure Color Fine Saphire(12). If you're rocking an electric color eyeshadow, it's best to keep your lipstick shade a neutral color. I also think that an intense black mascara makes this eye makeup look complete and in balance.
I used MAC myth lipstick and dapped it on my lips with my finger to erase the natural redness I have. I then went over the lipstick with the Estée Lauder citron Kiss Shimmer Lipgloss (which looks yellow, but I assure you it's more of a shimmery clear gloss when applying it)
This intense blue smokey eye screamed for a girly pink blush, I used the Estée Lauder Pure Color in Tease which is in between a very pretty soft pink and a highlighter. So pretty !
I hope you like this first look I created , do let me know what you think about it :-) !
