An exclusive Christmas Look

 "How do you imagine your perfect holiday party look 2012?" 
Well here a special Christmas look.  Hope you like it. Next week, check out the Special New Year's Eve look...

Look by Andrée Line DUMONT, pro makeup artist and teacher at the MAKE UP FOR EVER ACADEMY Paris

STEP 1 : Apply the Aqua Cream #14 (Satin Brown) with the 5N Brush to your entire eyelid, blending up into the crease of the eye and towards the outer corner. Continue applying/blending along the lower lashline.

STEP 2 : Blend the Aqua Cream #27 (Mat Black) with the 5N Brush along the upper and lower lashlines, and continue blending outwards and up into the crease of the eye forming a banana. 
Using the 8S Brush, perfect the blend between the two colors and soften the edges, by applying some Eyeshadow #04 (Black) over the black Aqua Cream and some Eyeshadow #122 (Metallic Copper) over the Brown Aqua Cream.

STEP 3 : Now add some light to your browbone and inner corner of the eye with some Star Powder #947 (Iridescent Pale Peach) using the 10S Brush.

STEP 4 : This is the exciting step! Apply the Aqua Liner #01 (Gold) to the lower and upper inner corner of the eye. 
Add some intensity with the Kohl Pencil #09 (Matte Mocha Brown) along your lower and upper waterlines.

STEP 5 : Finish off by applying a few coats of Black Smoky Lash to your lashes. You can always add some False Lashes for more eccentricity.

STEP 6 : For your lips, fill in your entire lips with the Aqua Lip Liner #2C (Rosewood) and to unify the texture and add some shine, cover with a transparent gloss like the Glossy Full, a vinyl effect pluming lip gloss.


Don’t forget to define your eyebrows with some Aqua Brow before starting your eye makeup, here we used #03.
As for you complexion, once you have done your foundation and powder, we recommend you sculpt your cheekbones with the Sculpting Blush #18 (Satin light peach), followed by the Compact Shine On powder #3 (Flesh) on your cheeks and up towards your temples. And there you go, all ready for your Christmas party.
