Full Face Holiday Makeup Tutorial


There are certain trends that are more runway than real-way. Glossy lids are one of them, but when tasked with creating metallic lids for Ulta and People StyleWatch, it was a risk I was willing to take! I had such a fun time choosing the items for this holiday makeup look. Even if you’re a huge makeup aficionado, it’s always worth your time to ask other’s opinions on products. The girls and boys at Ulta were so helpful, giving honest opinions and thoughtful suggestions. I ended up being there much longer than I had planned since we got to chatting about YouTube, blogging and our makeup idols.


I knew I wanted to create the glossiest, shiniest, most metallic lids possible so this was the perfect opportunity to try NYX’s Lid Lacquer. It’s about what I expected, similar to a clear lipgloss in texture and creases easily. However, this look is just for fun and the Lid Lacquer can be easily skipped! The results will still be metallic and shiny! Watch the tutorial below to see for yourself!

I originally wanted to pair an ultra matte lip with these eyes, but in the end, I decided to play it safe and wearable with a glossy nude lip. Thought you guys might appreciate that more than the matte vampy purple I wanted to do! 🙂

This tutorial was the first time I had tried the Nyx Cosmetics Mineral Stick FoundationTarte Tarteist Clay Paint LinerEssence Long-lasting Lipstick, and Nyx Cosmetics Prismatic Eye Shadow and I am happy to report I loved them all! Totally impressed!

I hope you recreate this look, or at least your own version of it! I’ll be back with another holiday makeup look before you know it!
