I always associate Christmas with red and sparkles. Usually I would go with a sparkly eyeliner, but I decided to do something different this year. It's a combination of my favorites - bit of sparkle, red lip and winged liner.
I wanted this makeup look to be simple, but still a bit sparkly. First I used mix of two warm matte brown shades to slightly define my crease. The star of the look is winged liner, so I skipped any eyeshadow on the actual lid. For the eyeliner I used burgundy shade to do a basic wing. I applied warmer and lighter red shade on top of burgundy and tried to blend it in. I also set it with a red eyeshadow to diffuse the edges a bit and make it slightly softer.
I used the same browns on my lower lash line. In the inner corners I started by applying a creamier shimmery light yellow gold eyeliner as a base. On top of that I put a mix of copper gold bigger glitter and smaller metallic gold glitter. I actually decided to extend the shimmer up in the inner corners pass the crease and also made it slightly longer on the inner corner of the lower lash line. It makes the look slightly more sparkly and offsets the wing on the other side.
I usually can't be bothered to apply false lashes, because I always struggle with them, so I just applied a bit of mascara and half lashes. Half lashes are shorter and can be applied only on the outer half of the lash line, so it sticks better and looks more natural. I choose style that wings out, because it suits my winged liner well. Unfortunately, camera never picks up glitter as nice as it looks in the real life. It looks much more sparkly as glitter catches the light.
I did my usual face paint - foundation, concealer and powder. For this warm red look I also needed to bronzed myself up with a bit of bronzer to add me warmth and color. I used gold champagne highlighter to match my sparkly eye inner corners. For the blush I went with a muddy redish color that looks natural and pairs with red lipstick, but I applied it fairly light.
For the lips I went with a very bright orange red, my favorite. These colors make a statement and make me feel happy. Sometimes I can look paler with a brighter color, so I usually just use a bit of bronzer and that makes it more wearable.
Red eyeliner is one of my new favorite things to do. It just looks unusual because of the color, but kind of classic because of the wing. This look could be worn with a more neutral lip color, but why not use the red. It just gives the complexion that oomph and makes it look more lively. I also like that it's not too glittery, but just gives you that lovely sparkle in the inner corners.
