This is going to be a post about the look I achieved for my company's annual holiday party. This is actually a pretty huge and fancy party so I look forward to them every year because it's a chance to really get glammed up.
For my makeup I used a million items as you can see from this mess!
I wanted to do a blue smokey eye and I used mostly the Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette (which coincidentally and luckily I received in the mail that very night!). The main colors of this look were Madness, Prank, and Shellshock (silver). I also used my Be A Bombshell liquid liner, UD 24/7 liner in Zero and Deviant, and the Starlooks pencil in Topaz. I used my YSL Faux Cils mascara and some falsies (I went through 3 sets and even these ones came out wacky because of my dumb shaky hands, grrr!).
I apologize for the quality of these photos, I live alone and can never really get good selfies (does anyone else have this problem and any advice for me??). Anywho, you can't really see it in these photos but the blue was REALLY vibrant and the silver in the inner corners was so bright and shimmery. Oh well.
The rest of my face:
Benefit Porefessional + Girl Meets Pearl, Double Wear foundation with beauty blender, UD Baked bronzer all over, NARS Laguna bronzer to contour (I swear contouring just doesn't show up on me no matter how dark I try to do it), NARS Orgasm blush, MAC Prep + Prime for under eyes, Watt's Up to highlight, Hourglass Ambient Lighting in Luminous Light for highlight powder on top of cheeks and some all over (review on this coming up, so far I'm underwhelmed). For lips I used my brand new BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie gloss in Game Changer which I LOVED! Again, these photos don't really showcase my makeup that well.
I also applied Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs all over my legs and arms.
For my nails I used nail stickers from Sephora. They were black with gold specks, shiny and festive. I painted my toes red with the nail polish I received in my December Ispy Bag from Nicka K.
Anyways, here's a photo of the final look from the party and another of my all time favorite coat. :)
The party was super fun and it's always neat to get to see your co-workers all dressed up and meet their significant others. Overall I really liked my look and I was sad to have to wash my face at the end of the night!
This is definitely a different kind of post for me so I hope that you enjoyed it. I feel weird about there being so many pics of ME ha! Please let me know if you have any specific questions on the makeup application since I know I went over it pretty quick.
Hope you all have a great day! :)
