Holiday Look #1: Featuring Blue Brown Pigment from MAC

This year the Office of Multicultural Affairs at my oldest daughter’s college is hosting a Holiday Social. Rae had expressed interest in going to this event. I came up with this look if she decides to attend. I used the Blue Brown Pigment from MAC as a part of her eye look. I also wanted a look she could do on her own if she decides to attend other Holiday parties.

Holiday Before Picture Before

Holiday Blue BrownI applied Blue Brown Pigment from MAC with a damp eyeshadow brush to the lid.

Holiday SketchIn the past I have paired Blue Brown with Handwritten as a crease color on myself. I used Sketch as a crease color on Rae.

Holiday CraveI used Crave from the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette on the outer V.

Holiday Naked2I used Naked2 from the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette on the brow bone.

Holiday ZeroYou can use any black eyeliner you choose. I used the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero to the upper and lower lash line. You can apply the mascara of your choosing and apply false eyelashes for extra glam.

Holiday LoverushI applied the MAC blush in Loverush to the apples of Rae’s cheeks.

NYX Purchase from HauteLook

More and more I find myself gravitating towards the NYX Loose Pearl Eyeshadows. Hautelook was offering sets of the loose pearl eyeshadow during their last NYX sale.
