Sultry Holiday Makeup Step-by-Step How-to

December 18, 2013

Add a little glamour for when the clock strikes 12 MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist, Yvonne Macinnis created a go-to New Years Eve look utilizing the Midnight Glow palette.

Complexion:

Step C1:
PRIME face all over with HD #0 primer using #108 Foundation brush.

Step C2:
APPLY HD foundation #125 (or desired color match) in a sheer layer all over face to create a flawless med-full coverage base with #108 Foundation Brush.

Step C3:
CONCEAL under eye, nasal fold and any additional areas requiring more coverage using #266 Brush. Pull concealer through brows with #266 brush to lighten if desired.

Step C4:
BUFF in a small amount of HD Microfinishing Powder to the center of the face, pressing under eyes thru the center with #140 brush then blend remaining powder all over external areas.

Step C5:
SCULPT (honoring face shape) with #2 Sculpting Kit (dark shade) with #150 large contour brush. BUFF highlight shade of #2 sculpting kit next to contoured areas with #152 brush.

Step C6:
APPLY Sculpting Blush #6 to the apples of the cheeks and pull color towards upper cheek bones- overlapping the center point of the previously applied highlight and contour. Using #152 brush, PLACE a small amount of blush on the upper brow bone pull into the temples.

Step C7:
HIGHLIGHT using #940 Star Powder on the upper cheekbone and on high points of the face (bridge of nose, center of chin and Cupid's bow) using #140 brush

Eyes:

Step E1:
Using #234 angle brush, APPLY a generous amount of #13 AQUA Crème all over the lid, from lash line to brow bone and buff for even consistency & texture.

Step E2:
Apply and SMUDGE #0L AQUA liner using #218 brush along the upper and lower lash line. Use the same liner to create ‘parenthesis’ on the inner and outer corners of the eye

Step E3:
USING #236 brush, buff #04 shadow from the MIDNIGHT GLOW Palette onto the entire lash line area and into the inner corner of the tear duct and outer corner accentuating the parenthesis shape created in step 2.

Step E4:
Blend and stretch this shape into the crease with the #234 brush using #127 shadow in the MIDNIGHT GLOW Palette.

Step E5:
Blend the darkest areas further using the #218 Brush and ‘Violet Night’ shadow in the MIDNIGHT GLOW Palette all the way around the lower lash line and outer corners of the eye. Blend until an ombre effect is created from black to burgundy shade.

Step E6:
Press ‘Icy Blue’ Shadow thru the center point of the eye with the flat side of the #234 brush. Spritz the eye area lightly with Mist & Fix. Layer Silver or gold (or both!) Diamond Powder on top in the center of the eye.

Step E7:
BUFF ‘Snow White’ Shadow in MIDNIGHT GLOW Palette on the brow bone under the eyebrow to highlight and on the inner corner of the eye.

Step E8:
APPLY Smoky Extravagant mascara to TOP & BOTTOM lashes.

Step E9:
PLACE # MIDNIGHT GLOW lashes on top lash line and allow to dry.

Step E10:
Using # 172 brush, APPLY #15 AQUA brow to eyebrow, using the MAKE UP FOR EVER Brow Technique, creating a flattering shape on your model.

Lips:

Step L1:
Using the MAKE UP FOR EVER Lip Technique, LINE the outer edge of the lips, spilling into the outer corners with Aqua Lip #14C and buff lightly into the lip line with #210.

Step L2:
FILL the entire lip with new AQUA ROUGE # from the Holiday Glow collection. Layer the AQUA ROUGE Glitter Gloss over the entire lip.
