FOTD: Simple Christmas Look
First, I want to wish everyone a happy whatever you’re celebrating, if anything. I wanted to post a quick “face of the day” post today on a very simple look using the Elf Prism palette in “Naked.” I’ve posted about this palette several times before, I just love it so much, especially for shimmery holiday looks.
First, I primed my eyelids, as usual. Then, I took the first champagne shimmery shade in the palette and put it all over my lids. I took the second to last brown shade with a smaller brush and put it fairly preceisley in the crease and blended it out slightly. I then took the darkest shade and put it on the outer part of my lid and smoked it out quite and bit and blended it in slightly into the crease. I then took another crush and using the first color I put that near my brow bone and blended the entire look together.
I then decided to glam it up a bit more and took a Nyx roll on shimmer (the white one) and put that on my lid and inner corner of my eyes. Because glitter. I lined my water line with a white eyeliner and put a matte dark brown color on my lower lash line and blended that out a little.
I used my Nyx liquid liner to create a wing and then put on a few coats of mascara on both my top and bottom lashes.
On my lips is a Milani Lip liner in “plush red” with Nyx “chaos” over it.
Very quick, yet very festive in my opinion.
Everyday Neutral Eye Look
I have a new video up today with my quick everyday neutral eye look that I pair with any and every lipstick and almost every blush.
Go easy on me, it’s my first time trying this 😀
Pictorial: Neutral Look Ft. Elf “Naked” Palette
Today I am going to attempt my first “pictorial” type of post featering my new elf prism palette. I did not take pictures at every step, but I am going to thoroughly explain everything. I will admit that I did not anticipate how hard a pictorial would be, so props to anyone that does these often.
I already had my face and brows completed before starting this look. That’s typically how I do my makeup, but feel free to not copy me at all. I know some people will do eyes first and brows last, but the fun of makeup is that there’s no rules. You do you.
First, I always go in with a bit of concealer on my eyelids. This is optional, but I have very dark lids and veins because I’m pale and an asthmatic. It cancels out any redness and darkness. After that set for a few seconds I put on elf’s studio eyeshadow in “Toast” as a shimmery base for the shadows. This is also optional, I was just feeling extra sparkly when planning this look out.
Next, I took a Nyx matte shadow in “Dances with Tides” (a warm orange-ish brown shade) sloppily in the crease. This is just a transitional shade, so it doesn’t have to be precise. Then I took first shade in the prism palette (the shimmery white one) on a flat eyeshadow brush and started packing it on my lid. I used a patting motion to really get the color on there.
I then took the second to last brown shade (not the darkest one) and put it on the outside corner of my eyes as well as on the outside of the crease. Using a fluffy blending brush I blending it out and into the middle of my eye a bit, and blended it into the crease. This was when I also created the “shape” that I wanted to make my eyeshadow before I started to work with any darker shades. I personally take my shadow out a bit since my eyes are so giant. It gives my eyes the illusion of looking a bit wider instead of just looking like I am constantly confused and surprised.
Anyway, after that you could finish the look. It would be a very soft and subtle neutral look. However, I was feeling like I needed a bit of a darker and less shimmery shade to balance it out so I took my ColourPop shadow in the shade “Mittens” and applied it on the very outer crease with an eyeshadow sponge. What…no brush? Nope. I used one of those little sponge things that I typically throw away and it applied the ColourPop shadow better than my fingers or a brush ever could. I knew those things would come in handy again someday.
I went through again and made sure everything was blended and shaped evenly.
I then went created a cat wing using my holy grail eyeliner…physicians formula eye booster pen in “ultra black” and applied falsies (also optional) and the ones I used were Red Cherry #43.
I went in with a black eyeliner and lined my water line and then took the original transition shade (dances with tides) and put that close to my lash line. Then I took a little bit of “Mittens” on the same brush and smudged and blended all of those together on my lower lash line and finished it off with a coat of Wet n Wild mega length mascara. Lastly, I popped a little bit of my city colour white gold mousse in the corners of my eyes to open them up a bit and put a bit of the first white shimmery shade from the prism palette near my brows to highlight those as well.
For the lips, since it’s neutral you could do any color you want. I chose a cabernet liner topped with my Manic Panic “Blood Rose” lip gloss. I feel this would be a quick and beautiful look for the holidays if you’re wanting a look that’s shimmery but not high maintenance.
Overall, I love this look and I’m happy with it. Feel free to give me thoughts on this pictorial and subscribe if you would like! I am hoping to have my very first youtube videos up this week!
