Now that there is less than two weeks until Christmas, I wanted to share this glamorous holiday look, with metallic gold eyeshadow and a classic red lip.

First I applied the Catrice Prime and Fine Primer, I recently bought this and it's so good! Next I dapped on my favorite Max Factor 2 in 1 Serum Foundation in Warm Almond all over my face, using the Beautyblender to make it look natural. Then I used my new Catrice Light-Reflecting Concealer in Light Nude under my eyes to brighten, and the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in Beige around my nose and on any blemishes. With the NYC Smooth Skin Pressed Face Powder in Translucent and a brush, I mattified my face to make my foundation last longer. For bronzer and blush I used the H&M Bronzing Powder in Gorgeous Tan and the KIKO Bling Blush in Celebrity Rose, to give my face definition and color.

Moving on to the eyes, I used the e.l.f. Eyelid Primer in Clear, this is important to make your eyeshadows last all day and night and look beautiful and vibrant. Then I grabbed my Urban Decay Naked Palette and applied Naked (a matte medium brown) in my crease, to define my eyes. Using Half Baked (a metallic gold) I swiped it all over my lids and for extra definition, I used a  smaller brush to blend Buck (a warm tan) into the outer corner of my eyes. I used Sin (a metallic pale champagne-pink) in the inner corners of my eyes, to brighten and make my eyes look bigger, and Virgin (a satin off-white) on my brow bone, to highlight. I skipped eyeliner and moved straight on to mascara, I used the Laura Geller GlamLASH in Black on my upper and lower lashes, applying two-three coats, since it's the holidays and we want big lashes. For my eyebrows I used Catrice Eye Brow Stylist in 020 and to set my eyebrows I used the L'OrĂ©al Brow Artist Plumper in Medium/Dark. Finally the eyes are done, but if you want extra glam on the eyes, apply some false eyelashes, this is going to give your eyelashes a glamorous flare.

First I applied the P2 Prefect Lip Color Stop Lip Definer, it's a clear lipliner you can use with any lip color and it will make your lipstick last longer. I topped it off with a classic red lip color, I used e.l.f. Matte Lip Color in Rich Rea. For a super long lasting red lip, I would recommend using the Rimmel Provocalips 16hr Kissproof Lipstick in Kiss Me You Fool.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Years!
