Ah, ladies. Aren’t you glad it’s Friday? TGIF! Today, since we’re getting down to the Christmas wire and the social season’s in full effect, I thought I’d try a makeup look with a little more pizazz than my earlier ideas for office parties and small get-togethers with friends.
It hit me while thumbing through the small look book that comes with Urban Decay’s Book of Shadows Volume II palette. There’s a shot of a sultry smokey eye that practically jumps right off the page!
Admiring Studying the picture for a moment, what stood out to me were the blending and colorful shimmer.
Not wanting to spend too long on my makeup this morning, the version I tried requires a little less blending to do.
Still wanting the eyes to be the focal points of the look, I went with a (subtler) shimmery golden peach cheek using NARS Orgasm Blush and a coral lip with MAC Cremestick Liner in Summerfruit, adding a layer of Benefit Silky Finish Lipstick in Sugar Cookie on top.
I’m picturing myself wearing this to a holiday cocktail party with friends, maybe paired with something edgy (these Max Studio outfits sprang to mind).
So where’s the party at, haaaay? If you’re heading to one this weekend, can I come too?
Two weeks till Xmas!
Do you remember being a kid and feeling like the last few days before Christmas stretched on forever? Like they lasted decades? But for adults it’s like weeks pass in the blink of an eye… I swear it was just Halloween 20 minutes ago, LOL!
What are your plans this weekend? El Hub and I might go to dinner, but Tabs/T-Woww plans to stay home and watch the new episode of Jersey Shore.
He’s obsessed with that show. I caught him searching for tanning beds and hair gel on Google a few minutes ago…
