Guest Post // Holiday Makeup- with a twist!

Hi everyone! My name is Brittany and I'm a Lifestyle & Beauty blogger from Canada over at Life, Set Sail. I am so excited to be here today to share with you a little holiday inspiration!

Today's look is a twist on the classic red lips and winged liner makeup.

The key factor here is that instead of a solid red pout, you are going to create an ombre effect with gold glitter. Once you've created the "classic" base use the goldest, most sparkly eye shadow you have, and pat it with your finger tips onto the inside section of your lipstick. It's that easy!

It's still got that classic feel, but it's a little more rock and roll now ;)

Products I used:

Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer
Marcelle Sheertint Fluid Moisurizer
MAC Studio Fix + Foundation
MAC Powder Blush in Fleur Power
Maybelline Define-a-Brow pencil
MAC Eyeshadow in Naked Lunch
MAC Fluidline Gel Liner in Blacktrack
Bourjois Rouge Edition lipstick in Rouge Buzz
Loreal Paris la Couleur infallible eyeshadow in Goldmine

So what do you think? Is this a look you think you'll try this holiday season? Tell me in the comments below!

  5. What a great idea! I've always wanted to do an ombre lip with a light pink and a dark pink lipstick, but this is a cool idea for the holidays. :)
