This time of the year can be very hectic for a lot of people, including myself. Between working full time, being a mommy and a blogger I can't always spend a ton of time on my makeup. When I get ready for my day I keep in mind the products that I'm using so that I can translate my look into other things.
While browsing the beauty aisles at Walmart I chose a couple of NEUTROGENA products that I think would work great with holiday looks and that could work during the day but would transition well into the night.
It's easier to touch up our lips but I never want to have to keep touching up my eyes so the NEUTROGENA Nourishing Long Wear Eye Shadow with Built in Primer is perfect because it lasts up to 12 hours and it helps to prevent creasing so you can look fabulous all day long!
Since it has gotten a lot colder outside my lips tend to get a lot drier, so for this tutorial I chose to go with the NEUTROGENA MoistureSmooth Color stick and I'm in love with it. It's super moisturizing and the mango and shea butter adds continuous moisture to my lips throughout the day so my lips don't feel dry and this color stick smells soooo good!!!
Today I want to show you how you can go from a simple office/every day look to a soft glam perfect so you can face the holiday while looking your absolute best!
STEP 1: Using the NEUTROGENA Cocoa Mauve eye shadow palette add the second color from the top to your lid. Instead of sweeping the color across the lid, use a small brush to pat the color on, this will help you build the color so that it can look more vibrant.
STEP 2: Using the same palette, add the third color from the top to your crease with a fluffy blending brush. This will add warmth and depth to your eyes while keeping the look simple and office appropriate.
STEP 3: To finish the look I added some eye liner and my favorite mascara. Of course we can't forget about the lips. I chose to go with the MoistureSmooth color stick in the color Rich Raisin. It goes on super smooth and it smells delicious. I like this color because it works with any look I might create.
Transition your day look for a party later in the evening by adding the darker shade of brown on the crease and under the bottom lashes, I also added another coat of mascara to my lashes to make them stand out a little more since I darkened the look. And for my lips I just added a dark plum lip liner to define my lips and to add more definition and color.
HOW WILL YOU BE FACING THE HOLIDAY THIS YEAR?
