Holiday Makeup Tutorial #1: Neutrals & Red Lips

Today I start the most beautiful period of the year with holiday makeup looks!  I have some new ideas and I hope you will enjoy them. Obviously the makeup looks will be inspired by the holidays and Christmas colors, too.

This eye makeup look is neutral but the gold makes it festive and it looks great paired with the red lip. 


  1. Prep eyes with foundation, powder and primer. Define eyebrows. Apply the first shade-warm brown in the crease/brow-bone area as a transition shade.
  2. Apply shade no.2-taupe/plum in the crease and blend both colors.
  3. To enhance the look, apply shade no.3-deep chocolate brown to the outer corner of the eyes. Using a fluffy and clean brush, blend the harsh lines.
  4. On the entire lid, apply shade no.4-gold eyeshadow followed by glitter.
  5. On the lower lashline, mix shades no. 2+3 (taupe + deep chocolate brown). In the inner corners, apply the gold shade.  Line eyes with a brown gel eyeliner.
  6. Complete the look with brown mascara and brown false lashes.
