Holiday Glam

‘Tis the season to be stressed, from planning cocktails for that holiday party to buying last minute stocking stuffers…it’s easy to forget to pamper yourself. Why not take advantage of the holidays by adding a little bit of sparkle to your makeup routine? That’s why I decided to team up with photographer and MUA Deon & Alayza Casey again to create this “Holiday Glam” look. Be sure to check out their links at the bottom of the page and their blog Focused on Beauty.

Winter weather is the perfect time to start wearing more makeup and trying out those fun, bold makeup looks you’ve been dying to rock. So why not add some glitter to that smokey eye? Or highlight your cheekbones with gold powder? Or my personal favorite, swipe on some red lipstick!


Alayza started off the look with a brown smokey eye and added some bronzy-gold glitter towards my inner eyelids that made them pop and shimmered purple in the light! It’s important to blend all the colors with a light to dark gradient effect (starting from the inner eye) before you pack glitter. Because you’re working with glitter, it’s easier to start with the eyes to clean up any residue before applying foundation. Tip: Use tape to pick up any leftover glitter on your face.

The classic red lip is always a timeless look, but why not try something a little different by opting for a wine color? It paired perfectly with the gold glitter from my eyes and instantly made me feel glamorous! I’m so excited to start trying out festive makeup looks this holiday season with Christmas just around the corner. Be sure to check out all the products used from this look below!
