Hey my loves,
I thought I share with you my make-Up and hair look from Christmas Eve. I spend it with the family of one of my best friends. I went for a dark purple smokey eye and curly hair. I hoped you all had a wonderful and blessed Christmas time, I indeed had. So this is my final look:
And here is a close up of the eye make up:
Here is my hair up close:
I personally think that you can wear this make up for every occasion, for example for a New Year’s Eve Party. And here is my step by step tutorial, sadly without picture, because they got somehow all very blurry.
Apply a base for your shadow and to even out your skin tone. I used the NYX HD Concealer in CW 04.
Take a sticky tape on to the back of your hand so that is not sticky anymore. Then place it so that it goes from the under eye rim up to your eyebrow leaving a little space for a highlighter.
I then took Maybelline’s Color Stay Tattoo gel-cream eyeshadow in 65-Pink gold and applied it all over the lid and into the crease.
Take Maybelline’s Color Stay Tattoo gel-cream eyeshadow in 70-Metallic Pomegranate and place it on the outer half of your lid. Focusing the main color on the outer V and then blending it in toward the middle of the lid and up to the crease.
Take the darkest shadow of the KIKO Cosmetics Color Fever Eyeshadow Palette 101 and place it over the Metallic Pomegranate shadow but focus it on the outer-v and up close to the lash line.
Take the lighter dark shadow of the Palette and apply it as a transitioning color between the middle and outer part of the lid and also the crease.
Then take the rose shadow of the palette and apply it to the front half of the lid, blending it into the shadow applied before.
Repeat the steps from the upper eye lid under the eye. Blend very well, this is for the lid and the under eye area very important.
Apply the highlighter to your brow bone, at first I used Catrice Cosmetics Velvet Matt Eyeshadow in 010- Vanillaty Fair and then went in with the highlighter shade of the palette. Also placing this color in the inner corner of the eye.
Apply your favorite mascara, I used Catrice Cosmetics Ultimate Lash Voluminzer Mascara in Black.
Remove the sticky tape and connect the upper lid and the under eye area with the darkest shade of the KIKO palettes.
Clean up any fall out and finish the rest of your face.
I used Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin Foundation in 021 Nude. Then for concealer I used the NYX HD again. To set my foundation and concealer I used Catrice Cosmetics All Matt Plus Shine Control Powder in 025 Sand Beige. As a contour and bronzer I used Catrice Cosmetics Sun Glow Matt Bronzing Powder for Darker Skin in 020 Deep Bronze. For my blush I used NYX Blush in PB04 Silky Rose and as my highlighter I took p2 Professional Perfect Fall all-over illuminator.
To curl my hair I used the Remington Curling Wand C196S1. You can find it here:

I hope you all have a wonderful day and I wish you all a happy new year.
