Holiday 2010 FOTD (Face of the Day)

With the Christmas Holidays looming nearby I want a make-up look that is festive, yet easy to do.
That being said, when I think of the Holidays, silver, gold and lots of sparkles come to mind.
Naturally I busted out all of my make-up supplies...

 My New favorite lipstick!!  And that's saying a lot since I don't normally wear any lipstick.

Ok, I lied, that's not all of my make-up, but that's the main necessity for me, or at least it was what I used to create this look  ^.^

Let's begin:

For the sake of showing you what make-up really does, I went bare as I applied to my eyes.  No, not bare as in naked (you dirty bird, get your mind out of the gutter ~.^ ) Bare as in a fresh canvas, a fresh make-up free face...
Gaaaahhh!  Isn't that terrible?!!  I look like an addict of some sort.  This is the result you get from lack of sleep, so my advice, sleep at least 8 hours a day if you can.  It doesn't help that I couldn't get my camera to focus either so I just snapped it anyway.

I will make a nice tidy list of everything I used at the end of the post, but for now, I'm gonna break it down.

Matte Palette

Shimmer Palette

Using Bhcosmetics Matte Palette, add color 11 to eyelid.

Switch to the Shimmer Palette and add color 77 to crease and bring into a V shape onto outercorner of eye lid

 Using color 44 from the Shimmer Palette apply under brow bone

 Switching back to the Matte Palette mix color 1 with 12 and 23 and apply right under brow

 Now we are ready to fill in our eyebrows...

 ...and apply eye liner

The final touch is applying our falsie lashes

For an extra touch of shimmer or sparkle I dusted a little bit of silver sparkles over top of my lids.
