Evening makeup look for the Holidays
-Please note that even though I am mentioning Clinique as well as their products and linking them here, this is NOT a sponsored post nor was it done in exchange for the makeover. I really liked my look and got many compliments which is why I decided to share it with you.-
A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity of having my makeup done by two different brands with two different looks. Not only were they different from what I usually wear (which is what we were going for), but they were both different in themselves. One was more appropriate for the day time and the other for the nighttime which is why I decided to post them on the blog as two different looks you can rock this Holiday Season. Here is the look done by Clinique which I would say is more of an evening or nighttime look.
The first and most important step to creating a great makeup look is to prep the skin. Because I have combination/oily-oily skin, they prepped my skin with Clinique’s 3 Step System for Combination/Oily as well as used the Sonic System Acne Solutions Deep Cleansing Brush.
Foundation: Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer in Neutral
Concealer: Airbrush Concealer in Medium (02)
Eyeshadow: All About Shadow Quad in Jenna’s Essential
Eyeliner: Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen in Black
Cheeks: Sculptionary Cheek Contouring Palette in Defining Nudes (#4)
Eyebrows: Done by me using my own products
Unfortunately since the makeup look was done early in the day, I ate and my lipstick came off a little and since I couldn’t retouch it, I opted for using another lip color and pencil I had which I will include in another post. I decided to show both pictures so you can see the detail of the makeup as well as how only the lip color can change the whole look. The whole look lasted the whole day and well into the late night until I had to take it off. Since most of you know, my eyebrows are pretty much my trademark which is why I always do them myself. This time wasn’t the exception. I did them myself using my own products which I will share in another post.
Hope you like it! Let me know if you recreate this or something similar for the Holidays! I would love to see it!
