Holiday Make-Up: Full Face Tutorial

Today I’m going to show you how I went from the left to the right. This simple glam holiday look is super easy to achieve, just follow my step by step tutorial below!

P.S. Links to all the products and shades I used are located at the bottom of the post.

Step 1: Apply an eye shadow primer, or if you’re like me and don’t have any (LOL), just use a little dot of concealer on your each eyelid. I used Tarte Shape Tape today.

Step 2: EYESHADOW. I used the Urban Decay Naked2 Basics Palette for most of this look. So for my base color I used the shade “Stark”.

Step 3: EYESHADOW. Using the same palette, using the shade ” apply it to your crease. It doesn’t have to be perfect, mine was actually quite messy. This gives you the slightest bit of dimension on your eye lids.

Step 4: EYESHADOW. I set the UD Naked 2 palette aside for a second and grabbed my ColourPop eye shadow pod in the color “Jinxie” and applied that just to my lid.

Step 5: EYESHADOW. Picking up my UD Naked 2 palette again, I went back into my crease and the outer corner of my eye lids with the shade “Primal”. This creates a little more dramatic look without going overboard.

Step 6: EYEBROWS. I do my eyebrows how I do them everyday. I use my NYX Brow Pencil and start off by making a line on the bottom outline of my eyebrow, then do the same to the top. Next, I fill it in and then blend it out with the brush end of the pencil. (Below I show you it with one done, then both done).

Step 7: FOUNDATION. I use my Burt’s Bees BB Cream in the shade “light/med” (honestly too dark for me, but I haven’t gotten a lighter shade for winter yet). I apply this to the back of my hand then take my beauty blender and make four dots on my face (both cheeks, chin, and forehead), then I blend it out.

Step 8: CONCEALER. I have been loving mixing these two concealers lately. I apply as below and then blend out with my fingers as much as possible. If I feel the need I will also blend it out with my beauty blender.

Step 9: SETTING POWDER. Now that my concealer is all blended out, I take my translucent powder and set everything with it. I use Dermablend Professional Loose Setting Powder, as pictured below.

Step 10: BRONZER. I take my little tiny LilyLolo Bronzer and apply that in a 3 formation on each side of my face. I start at my temple then bring it down to just under my cheekbone then bring it down one last time to my jaw line. (If you haven’t checked out Lily Lolo cosmetics, I highly recommend it and it’s all organic!!) IMG_5043

Step 11: BLUSH. I take my Avon Blush that I’ve literally had since high school and some how haven’t ran out of yet. Like seriously, I’ve had this same compact since high school.

Step 12: HIGHLIGHT. Next, I take my ELF highlight pod and apply it to the tippy top of my cheek bones using my EcoTools Fan Brush. (Seriously my favorite brush)

Step 13: MASCARA. Next you are going to apply mascara. I use a combo of Loreal’s Voluminous Primer and CoverGirl’s Lash Blast in shade “brown.”

(This combo is EVERYTHING!!!!!)

Step 14: & THE VERY LAST STEP!! LIPSTICK. Apply your favorite red lipstick to take this simple gold eye and launch the whole look into full on holiday mode! (I used ULTA Lip Crayon that they don’t sell any longer).

“You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman”

A little more than a year ago I decided to switch as many beauty and personal care products as I could to natural or organic. This came after I learned just how horrible most of the products I was using were. A lot of the products I now use I order off Amazon, so I decided I would compile a list of my favorite products!

Skinerals Organic Self-Tanner: Y’ALL. This is some of the best self-tanner I have ever used! The color is amazing and its very reasonably priced for the amount you get.

Kiss My Face Shave Cream: All-time favorite shave cream! Contains no animal products, unnecessary chemicals, or artificial colors and gives you baby smooth skin!

Acure Shampoo & Conditioner: Acure is one of my favorite natural/organic brands I have found! They have so many products and they are ALL so good! Here is my favorite shampoo and conditioner by them:

Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Liquid Soap: This stuff is magical.. It can literally be used for just about anything; shampoo, face wash, laundry, cleaning, brushing your teeth, shaving and what I mostly use it for, body wash!

Burt’s Bees Deep Cleansing Cream: This is my new favorite face wash! It is so refreshing and you get a huge bottle for a fraction of most other face wash products!

Theresa Natural Remedies Witch Hazel Cucumber Toner: Just recently started using this and it’s been a game changer for my skin!

Pacifica Beauty Coconut Probiotic Water Rehab Cream: When I started using this stuff it was a GAME CHANGER for me!! I have sensitive skin and finding a moisturizer that didn’t make my skin breakout felt impossible until I found this stuff!

Burt’s Bees BB Cream: This is my everyday go-to make up. I wear this everyday for it’s great coverage but light-wear. It is so good at evening out your skin tone but does not feel heavy on the skin.


Taking care of yourself is so important and being aware about what you are using on your skin or putting in your body is a part of that! Do your body a favor and treat yo’self to some natural and/or organic products and let me know how you like them!
