Holiday Makeup Tutorial + Giveaway!

With the holidays right around the corner, I wanted to share a Holiday Romance Look that I personally would wear to holiday parties/gatherings. For the holidays, I typically prefer to wear soft neutral shadows on my eyes with a winged out cat eye, rosy pink snow-kissed cheeks, and a bold berry lip, which is exactly what I am sharing in today’s makeup tutorial. I started this look by applying the Mary Kay® Mineral Eye Color in Spun Silk all over the lid, Lavender Fog into the outer 1/3 of my eye and then blending Driftwood into the crease. I also used Spun Silk to highlight my brow bone. I used the Mary Kay® Eyeliner in Deep Brown to line my upper lashline, and then applied the Mary Kay® Lash Love Mascara in black to my lashes. I applied a rosy pink blush to my cheeks using the Mary Kay® Cream Blush in Sheer Bliss. I finished off my look by lining my lips with the Mary Kay® Neutral lip liner and Rosette Lipstick.

I want to do that revamped, with a magnificent outfit and look!! The make-up and gift card for 100 bucks will help me to look like a million bucks and blow away my family members!! I did have one great side effect of completing my goal and that is all the new self confidence!! So I’ll be crossin’ my fingers to win this giveaway!!
