Festive Makeup In A Flash

I have come to realize in my old(er) age, that sometimes I just can’t take 20- 30 minutes to pull a makeup look together, as much as I’d like to.  (Here’s a recent post confirming just that showcasing my early morning face.)  With the holidays upon us, I feel like I need to have a quick and easy go-to look when I need to look festive in a flash!  Here is such a look and its 3 main components…

1.  Maybelline Eye Studio Master Precise liquid liner in “black” ($8)
2.  Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in “Rose” ($40)
3.  Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick in “Cherries In The Snow” ($7)
If you want to see my original posting on the iconic “Cherries in the Snow” shade, click here.  My skin was a bit darker in the posting, but it still works!

{I wouldn’t dare compare myself to Gwen, but isn’t our look similar?? Via.}

If you want to use your own products to get my festive look – all you have to do is:

  • create a thin winged eye, 
  • shimmery cheeks, 
  • and a matte but bright lip!
I like to balance out the shimmer by not having it on the lips AND cheeks, so pick one or the other.  If you’re interested in my shadow colors, they’re both by MAC Cosmetics –  “vellum” (which isn’t available anymore, try “crystal avalanche“) from the lash line to crease and in the crease is “sketch.”  Oh, and of course the sock bun for zero hair time.  Are y’all tired of me talking about this hair do yet??
If you had to create a festive look with only 3 main products – which ones would you use?
