December’s holiday makeup and style trends usually involve a lot of bright red and green or silver and blue. December makeup is definitely festive and sparkly, which is something I love. I have a true aesthetic appreciation for sparkle and glitter. Because my skin is so pale, however, bright colors don’t look great on me. Rather than brightening my skin, they tend to make me look like a ghost. Purple, on the other hand, not only matches my hair but seems to brighten my eyes and soothe my soul. So, I’ve decided to rock a sugar plum fairy themed makeup for the holiday season.
Here is what is currently in my makeup bag!
Kat Von D Lock It Foundation – it’s one of the only brands that makes colors pale enough for a ginger girl.
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Ilumination – Since I’m so pale, the lightest shade works as both a highlighter and concealer for me.
Urban Decay Afterglow 8-hour Blush – I am particularly fond of the Fetish and Rapture shades.
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner – by far the smoothest eye liner on the market.
Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagent Mascara – I have a few samples of this and love how it gives length and volume to my lashes.
Julep Feels Like Velvet Eye Shadow – I am crazy about this new duo called Luck and Magic featuring a gorgeous boysenberry and gold shimmery taupe. Click through on the link below and use the code to get 40% off!
