Clarins Instant Smooth primer **Absolute best – I have talked about this product before, but if you have yet to try it, go pick one up today! It is the best face primer for women who want to cover pores, fine lines or for just a perfected base before foundation. Great for any age and will not break you out!
Clarins Skin Illusion Foundation in 110 – This foundation is great for ladies who want an all day long-lasting coverage. You get light-medium coverage depending on how many layers you apply. I like to use a stippling brush and wear two light coats. Great for dry, mature, dehydrated, and normal skin. I wouldn’t suggest to oily clients for its very glowing on the skin. 
Japonesque contour brush– Great brush for contouring cheekbones very well. 
Pick up at your closest Ulta!

(If you have oily eyes- apply a primer, I didn’t for this look}
1. Apply Satin Taupe by MAC all over the lid and into the crease of the eye with a blending brush.
2. Apply Cocker Spaniel by Buxom on the inner tear ducts to brighten up the eyes. 
3. Apply a black winged eyeliner to the top lid with Stila black liquid liner. 
4. Apply Lorac’s 3D lustre to a flat lip brush and pat onto the center of the eye above liner. This will add a lot more sparkle than you can see in pictures, if you want less sparkle only apply a dot amount. It dries quickly and lasts all day long! It is the BEST way to add glitter to the eye without applying actual sparkles. 
*Touch up your eyeliner if any sparkles fall on the line. 
5. Apply some false lashes next! I just wanted to take a minute to rave about these false lashes I am wearing, my look would not be complete without them! They are from House Of Lashes and they are the brown Noir Fairy lashes. Multi layered and multi tiered with 100% synthetic hairs, you will love the way they look. They are pretty thick so if you are not used to that style of lash I would suggest their Au Naturale or Glam collection. 
6. Line the inner eyes with my favorite Benefit High Brow pencil {white}. This will open them up!
7. Apply Sephora’s chrome shadow in Golden Peach to the entire bottom lash line. 
8. Coat top lashes with mascara and your sparkling holiday look is complete! 
Lipliner: NYX 810 {line and fill in lips}
lipgloss: MAC Ready or Not lip glass {tan/gold}
What did you guys think about this look? I think its perfect for a Christmas party, New Years Eve…or if you were me, I would wear it even on a Monday. 
Who doesn’t need a little glam in their every day life.

Party Eyes: Cut Crease

If you’re looking for a newer, hotter, bolder shadow, and you’re tired of the usual smokey eye, then the “cut crease” is what you want to try. You may have seen this look before but not sure what it was called. The “cut crease” is when you line the entire crease of your eye with a dark shadow to dramatize your eye makeup. This is the look I decided to do for this beautiful girl, Brinley, for her homecoming dance. Get these fun party eyes below!
Enjoy
1. Apply the Urban Decay Primer-Sin to the entire lid. This primer has a slight shimmer to it so it will add  a bit of shine to the gold when applied. 
2. Apply MAC ‘Blanc Type‘ under the brow bone, inner tear ducts, and under the lower lid to highlight these areas.
3. With a flat shadow brush, pack on this shimmer gold shadow {e.l.f. Golden Goddess Pigment} to the entire lid, do not go up on the brow bone though. To make the color really pop and shine, spray your brush with water before applying the gold to the lid. 
4. With a small tapered pencil brush, apply a shimmer gray { Urban Decay ‘Snare‘} to the crease with a wind shield wiper motion into the crease. Follow your crease from the outer crease corner all the way to the inner crease.  This is a softly blended cut-crease effect, what this means is we are carving out the crease with a darker color so it looks very defined. With a blending brush {Sigma}, blend out the shadow on each ends towards the temples. 
5. Apply a gel liner {Inglot 77} with a thin eyeliner brush {Sigma} to the top lid. Start from the inner corner and winging it outwards, really extend the end of the wing outside of the eye. 
6. I applied some thick lashes to the top lid to really enhance her eye shape. If you already have long lashes, you can just apply mascara. House Of Lashes -Temptress
* No eyeliner was used on the bottom so that the top was really accentuated, this also helps open the eyes.

 Foundation: Airbrush Kett 

Concealer: Graftobian HD Super Palette Warm Apply a concealer two shades lighter than your skin color under the eyes and down the center of the nose with your finger or a concealer brush.
 Blend in with a damp beauty blender

***Contour: Kryolan TV paint stick-3W For the contour, I love these creamy paint sticks, they are so great because you just draw it onto the areas you want to chisel. Draw lines on the face with this stick by turning the stick to the side as if it were a pen. Apply under the cheekbones, sides of nose, forehead, and under jaw. Blend the lines into the skin with the same damp beauty blender in pressing motions. For her nose, I drew two close lines close in to each other to shape her nose more for photos.

Highlight: MAC cream color highlighter I usually don’t use cream highlighter because they can be a bit dramatic for an everyday look, but for a special event like a dance, I love the way it looks. Apply with your ring finger and tap down the center of the nose, upper lip, inner tear ducts, and with two fingers tap onto the cheekbones.
Setting: MAC Mineralize medium deep Tap onto the skin lightly to set the skin.

Bronzer: **Smashbox bronze lights- sun kissed matte {new favorite} Apply this silky bronzer the desired areas: Cheekbones {darken contour}, forehead, sides of nose. This bronzer is ah-mazing, I just recently got it and I love how smooth the texture of it is.
Lips: Revlon- Champagne On Ice
