Try out my holiday glam makeup look!
Can anyone else believe Christmas is this Sunday? I’ll admit it – I’m completely overwhelmed and wish I could cram in 10 more days until then to get everything I need done! To get in the holiday spirit, I wanted to create a holiday glam makeup tutorial! I will be exclusively be using makeup products from It Cosmetics, one of my current favorite makeup brands! Make sure to stick around until the end of the post to enter to win $300 worth of It Cosmetics products!
Today I’ll be using some of my favorite IT Cosmetics products! IT Cosmetics is one of those beauty brands where I adore the entire collection. No seriously, my collection is growing by the day.
Prep + Prime:
Before applying any makeup, I used my go-to . This stuff is the best. It applies smoothly on your face and quickly melts off any leftover makeup or buildup from the night before. It smells like oranges, and I am obsessed. After cleansing my face, I applied a moisturizer and then the Bye Bye Makeup™ 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm. My skin is super sensitive so I typically stay away from primers, but this one is super gentle and weightless on my face! Bye Bye Pores Primer™ Oil-Free Poreless Skin-Perfecting Serum Primer
Foundation + Concealer:
While I typically don’t use powder foundation, I decided to switch up my routine and use It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation in ‘medium’. For a powder foundation, it has impressive coverage and doesn’t crease! My oily skin appreciates a vacation from liquid foundation. Next, I applied It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better™ CC+™ Cream with SPF 50+ as a concealer! I’ve recently been experiencing some unwanted blemishes, and this product helps to conceal and brighten imperfections without clogging my pores! Fun fact: this product smells like key lime pie and brings me back to my childhood!
Contour, Eyebrows + Blush:
Ya girl loves a great contour palette and I’ve discovered a great find! The It Cosmetics You Sculpted Palette is amazing y’all! Not only is the palette extremely pigmented, it applies flawlessly with my It Cosmetics City Chic Brush Set!
I blended #5 and #2 under my cheekbones, the bridge of my nose and along my hairline and jawline. Next, I blended #3 and #6 and highlighted the centre of my nose, above my cheekbones, my cupids bow, and the centre of my forehead using. I used the Chic Powder Brush from the It Cosmetics City Chic Brush Set for this step! To complete the look, I applied the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed Anti-Aging Finishing Powder. This is hands down the best finishing powder I’ve tried – and as a gal with oily skin, I like to keep it in my purse for touchups!
I am a superfan of It Cosmetics eyeshadow palettes. I love the pigmentation and application process of the colors. For this look, I decided to use one of my favorite palettes: It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Vol 1 Matte Luxe Transforming Eyeshadow Palette.
For this look, I used #15 (‘Transforming Pearl’) as a highlighter on my brow bone and on my inner lid. Next, I applied a mixture of #3 (‘Warmth’) and #5 (‘Mocha’) across my entire lid. Finally, I applied #13 (‘Java’) to my outer crease. I love the warmth of this color combination!
Mascara, Blush + Lipstick:
Next I applied It Cosmetics Hello Lashes 5-in-1 Mascara to complete a warm smokey eye look! I added a touch of blush from the It Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi Complexion Perfection Palette. To complete the look, I applied It Cosmetics Blurred Lines Smooth Fill Gel-Crème Lipstick in ‘Daring’. I love this hydrating formula – perfect for winter!
