Holiday Beauty That Pops

15 December 2015

For my final Holiday Beauty with Target post, it’s all about maximum impact with minimal effort. Less time spent in front of the mirror and more spent on the finer things, like eating gingerbread cookies, wearing hideous yet quirky sweaters and drinking eggnog.

To keep the drama and wow effect with both looks, I opted to enhance one area for each of the looks. The first is all about the eyes and the second, bold lips. Both take about 15 minutes from start to finish, but with enough impact to make it look like you just spent an hour fine-tuning your look.

Look One: Golden Eyes and Nude Lips
After applying primer, concealer and foundation, lightly define your cheekbones with the "contour" side of NYX WonderStick. Blend and dab a tiny bit of Pixi Sheer Cheek Gel in Rosy to the apples of your cheeks.

Next, perk up your brows a little with Pixi Endless Brow Gel Pen {in Light—I love this pencil!} and apply two layers of the deep golden shadow {fourth color} from the L'Oréal Paris La Palette Nude 1. Finish with a cat eye {Sonia Kashuk Liquid Liner is my favorite} and a couple coats of Pixi Large Lash Mascara in Black.



Look Two: Grey Smokey Eyes and Deep Lips
After applying primer, concealer and foundation, lightly define your cheekbones with the "contour" side of NYX WonderStick. Blend and dab a tiny bit of Pixi Sheer Cheek Gel in Rosy to the apples of your cheeks, like before.

Next, perk up your brows a little with Endless Brow Gel Pen. With L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Dual Effects Eyeshadow in Incredible Grey, apply a layer of light grey shadow and define with a darker shade of grey. Add a quick cat eye and a couple of coats of Pixi Large Lash Mascara.

Finish with a bold purple/berry lip. With a lipstick brush, apply NYX Lipstick in Purple, and touch up if needed.
Don't forget, Target has free shipping and returns until December 25th!
