2 Holiday Beauty Looks + $300 Nordstrom Giveaway

With holiday festivities in full swing, it’s time to rock your favorite holiday looks! Whether you’re a natural beauty fan or full on glam lover – we’ve got you covered! Today Marie and I are sharing our favorite holiday looks and walking you through how to accomplish each. Make sure to stick around to the end of the post – we’re giving away a $300 Nordstrom beauty bundle to re-create your favorite holiday look!

Look #1: Santa Baby

Shop The Look:

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know I’m not afraid of a little color! This look is my typical holiday look: winged liner, subtle contouring and a bold red lip. Here is my step by step tutorial to accomplish this look:

Step 1: Foundation

For this look, I used my all time favorite foundation. If you’re a fan of full coverage and have normal-normal oily skin – this is your best foundation match! This foundation does not budge. You will have flawless skin all day long. I’m wearing the shade Dawn.

Step 2: Contour + Highlight

To create definition, I used this contour palette. If you have a round shaped face like me, contouring will help to make your face appear slimmer. I mixed the top three shades in the palette and applied them under my cheekbones, on the sides of my nose and underneath my chin. For a subtle glow, I applied one of my all time favorite highlighters (in shade Gilded Honey). I love how this highlighter is extremity pigmented – you only need to use a little for the perfect shimmer!

Step 3: Brows

When it comes to brows, I only really use this brow pomade (in shade dark brown) with this brush. They’re both worth every penny and last forever!

Step 4: Mascara + Liner 

For this look I created a dramatic winged liner with this liquid eyeliner in shade Noir. To lengthen my lashes, I used this iconic mascara (get it?!).

Step 5: Lipstick 

To finish off the look, I used my all time favourite red liquid lipstick in “Fashion Legacy”. No lip liner required!

Look 2: Dashing Through The Snow

    I really like this tutorial for the red lipstick and eyeliner in this post. I am a bit shy trying a bolder lipstick, but it looks great and I want to try the look for the Holidays. I would like a brow tutorial and how to get your brows looking good.

    I would like to see metallic cosmetics used subtly, if that makes sense. I love metallics in moderation.
