Christmas Inspired Make Up Looks – Traditional

Unless you’ve been under a rock for the last few weeks, you know that Christmas is right around the corner! The halls are decked, and the retailers are falling in line with festive decorations every where you turn. I’m getting back into that holiday spirit this year in a big way, and thought it would be great to throw together some holiday inspired looks.

So I’m kicking off my holiday looks, by using the traditional green and red color swatch. You’ll notice that I have included 2 different looks, though they were inspired by the same thing, you’ll see that they turned very different. I’m continually learning that there so many ways to be inspired. There are so many expressions and ways that you can be moved by a single source. That’s the essence of creativity. I also believe that creativity is a muscle. There are some people that are innately talented in one way or another, but until they stretch themselves and allow their creative juices to flow, they’ll never know what they are capable of.

I’ve learned over the past few months that the best way for me to continue to grow as a make up artist, an entrepreneur, a leader, a digital marketer, a mother, a woman… is to really allow myself to explore the lengths and depths of my creativity in every area of my life. I’ve finally retired my yoga pants, ponytail, and chap stick in for a much more glamorous version of myself… and to be honest, its done wonders for the way that I show up for work. Even though work is 3 steps away in the other room. Well, anyway, back to my holiday looks!

Keep a tradition. Expand a tradition. Try it… then let me know how it worked out!

What do you think about my attempt?!?

1) Traditional Red and Green: This look was achieved using the Mary Kay Limited Edition Sapphire Noir Palette and Diva Lipstick by MAC cosmetics. Oh, and you can click here to get the necklace in our store!

Who says you can only wear a black smokey eye? I chose to create traditional dark green smokey eye with a brown detail in the crease and black in the corners to seal off the the eye. This particular look I opted for 3D Fiber Lash Mascara vs a false eyelash, and I added a rosy cheek to represent my holiday cheer!

2) A Spin on the Traditional Green and Red: Why not try a little different take on the holiday red and green, by putting a little teal and mulberry in the mix. I used Dragon on the lid, Alchemy in the crease, and Bondage in the outer corners. I used a light and wispy eyelash to complete the look on the eye.
