Make-up for the Festive Season #2


Hello again!

Ok, so in the interest of sticking with the Festive make-up theme, I came up with 2 looks, one for myself and one for my sister, Rachel. Rachel doesn't usually wear make-up so she wanted something, noticeable yet subtle that she could wear for her work’s Christmas party. I gave her Gold and Brown Smokey eyes with a Pink/Nude lip, this look is very versatile and can be worn on any occasion and it would go with a number of lip shades, especially a BRIGHT RED!! Kiss markKiss mark which is definitely more my style, but obviously it's not about me, it's about Rachel and what likes and what she's comfortable with. She looks lovely, even if I do say so myself! :) I highlighted her cheeks with 'Muscovado' Blush from the Sleek Blush by 3 Palette and also I dabbed a little bit of 'Fantasy' liquid eyeliner from Lush Cosmetics on her cheek bones just to add a bit of sparkle. 





For my look, I contradicted my last post and gave myself bright eyes with bright lips!!
In my last post I said that, ideally either the lips or the eyes should be bright but not both! 
But somehow this really worked! To be honest I think it's because the Blue (eyes) and Purple (lips) compliment each other; I had just bought the lipstick (Mystic by Sleek) so I was trying it out, I hadn't actually intended to do a blue Smokey eye, but I was experimenting with my Sleek Storm Palette and this is what I ended up with. I did a Blue/Black Smokey eye and I put a little bit of Purple glitter on top and finished with Eyelure falsies just to make my eyes stand out a bit more!! I'm very happy with the look!
