"Glam Green Glitter" Holiday Makeup

Salut mes belles!! Christmas is right around the corner, so today's look is once again reflective of the holiday spirit using green as the quintessential color of Xmas. If you know me and have been following my blog for a while, then you know that green in not typical in my color palette and I only embrace it on special occasions. Today is that day and I'm wearing green proudly, thanks to Motives Cosmetics whose green glitter is the prettiest I've ever laid my eyes on! For this popular look, I'm mixing up a couple of styles, particularly "East meets West" rocking a celeb-inspired fringe and some gorgeous exotic hand-made earrings from my fave Eastern jewelry line Innaya Couture.

Dress: Custo Barcelona
The Look: Glam, edgy, exotic with a focus on heavy metal glittering lids and smoldering lash lines. Well sculpted features; soft, pinkish lips. Tousled ponytail & trendy fringe.
EYES: Smokey Cat Eye Glitter Gradient

Products Used (EYES): use code MARYAMNYC when shopping for Motives

Holiday Glitter Smokey Eye How To:
  1. Apply eye base all over the lid. Using a pointed crease brush, apply Cappuccino eyeshadow to the crease and blend well.
  2. With an angle liner brush, line the top lash line, extend and thicken the outer wing. Blend the wing towards the center of the lid and avoid any sharp edges. You want the line to be somewhat messy.
  3. Using a contour brush, blend out the wing of the liner using Vino eyeshadow. Add vino to the crease to deepen the smokiness.
  4. Using a flat brush, apply Heavy Metal eyeshadow all over the movable lid and inner corner, meeting with the wing. 
  5. Clean off the same brush and apply Karma glitter on top of Heavy Metal. TIP: use glitter adhesive to help it stick and last longer.
  6. Line the bottom lash line and waterline using LBD gel liner and seal the bottom lash line with Heavy Metal eyeshadow. Apply mascara and false lashes to complete the look.
