Holiday Eyes: Thanksgiving Tutorial

holiday eyes_thanks15

Thanksgiving Week is finally here. For me this means the undeniable beginning of Holiday Party Season (HPS). Over the next two months, we’ll all be attending family dinners, Friendsgiving parties, dirty Santa gift exchanges, and the ultimate culmination of HPS: New Years’ Eve parties.

Not only will you need event-appropriate outfits and shoes – different ones for each party, right?! – but also you’ll want to pump up your makeup routine. As we saw in Darcy’s most recent fashion post, the holidays are all about glamour-- even on Thanksgiving.

Today’s Makeup Monday post centers around the Maybelline Eyestudio “Copper Chic” quad.  Using this awesomely affordable eye shadow, I created what I believe to be a perfect Thanksgiving face. Follow this tutorial to add some glamour to your Turkey Day!

After filling in my brows and getting my foundation and blush applied, I prepared my eyelids with Shadow Insurance from Too Face. Here’s where the fun starts!

To start, I applied color #2 all over my eyelid, from lash-line to crease.

Then I used a contouring brush to add color #3 in the crease of my eye, creating shadowy definition below the brow bone.

I then applied color #4 in a sideways-V shape, framing the area from above my crease out to the edge of my eye, then back in above the lash line.

Before blending, I added color #1 (our highlighter) to the area just above below my eyebrow. This highlighter not only adds definition to my brows but also makes blending out shade #3 much easier.

From there I just blended like a fool. All of the colors in this quad are gorgeous and work well when heavily blended together.

I finished off this look with black eyeliner (or you could use a soft brown for a more neutral look) and some black mascara!

I chose to do a nude lip with this look so I could bring more focus to my eyes.
