Holiday Makeup Tutorial

One of my favorite things about the holidays is getting dressed up to attend holiday parties and events. Holiday makeup has always been a passion of mine. Especially because it’s the time of year I can really get away with red lips! Lately, I have been wearing this eye look and it pairs perfectly with my favorite red lip. I wanted to put together a holiday makeup look to share with you! Recently, I have gotten so many questions about this eye makeup lately so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to share it with you. 

In this post, I will be sharing which products I used to create this holiday makeup look. Be sure to check out my video tutorial, here, to get a step by step tutorial!

Holiday Makeup Tutorial

Holiday Makeup


The eyes and lips definitely steal the show in this look, but nothing looks good without a solid, and beautiful, base. My go-to foundation recently has been Cliniques Beyond Perfecting foundation. I love this foundation because the coverage is buildable and you can even use it as a concealer. The applicator is amazing and mess-free, which I love! If you have acne, or oily, skin you will love this foundation. I also used Laura Mercier’s Secret Eye Brightener which is my latest obsession! I struggle with dark circles under my eyes and with oily skin, my concealer always creases. Between this powder and my Tarte concealer, my under eye area stays bright! 

For my bronzer, I just started using BareMinerals “Warmth” which is an oldie but goodie! It’s so natural brings a true glow to your face! If you are looking for the perfect, natural looking, bronzer, you have to try this one! It brings a serious glow to this holiday makeup look.


I always start out any eye look with my NARS Pro Prime, eyeshadow base. This keeps my eyeshadow bright, smooth, and helps it last all day (or night). Another essential for me is a good neutral/vanilla eyeshadow color. Lately, I have been obsessed with Ricepaper from MAC. I always use this to get a good color canvas on my lid and brow bone. This makes blending so much easier! I wish I had a dollar for everytime I mentioned Urban Decays Naked 3 Palette this year because I would be rolling in the dough! But seriously, if you love a good neutral eye look and are tired of always going to browns and golds, to get your fix. You will love this palette!

To get this look, I mixed two matte shades from the palette, Limit, and Nooner. This brings a natural depth to my eye and makes the shimmery shades pop even more. I have been a fan of MACs pigments for many years. They provide an incredible color payoff and last forever, literally. For this look, I used Vanilla and English Gilt (this color is heavenly) from their holiday collection. These colors are incredibly beautiful and perfect for any holiday makeup look! You can see other eye details (mascara, eyeliner, lashes) in my video tutorial here. 


What good is any holiday makeup look without a classic red lip? If you have yet to find the perfect shade or are looking for a great gift idea, you must check out this set from MAC. For the price, you truly cannot be this gift set. I’m usually not one for gift sets because there is always something in them I won’t use. but, I cannot honestly say without hesitation that these two MAC gift sets are different. I use everything in both sets and love all of the products. A couple of weeks ago I shared my favorite red lipsticks, so check out that post for more information. You can see these products in action here and be sure to check out this post for tips on perfecting your red lipstick application! We all know that can be a little tricky!

    The best thing I like about holiday season is being able to get together with my family, specially my son. He’s far away in college in the US and I get to see him only during holidays when he comes home. I’m already counting days for his Christmas holidays to begin !

My favorite part is being able to get dressed up even just for family get together a and spending time with family and friends to share memories and make new ones.
