Happy Christmas Eve, everyone! Today's featured Look of the Day is one I created to be extra fun, festive, and vibrant. It centres around sparkly golden eyes, shimmery pink cheeks, and glossy cherry lips. I was happy with how it turned out!
The star product of this look is Lush Emotional Brilliance Liquid Eyeliner in Fantasy, which is a brilliant sparkly gold shade. To see a swatch of it, click here! I used it as an eyeliner underneath the eye, then as a cream shadow all over my lid. The result was a seriously dramatic gold eye! I went to the doctor's that day, and she literally had to stop the exam to say "wow, I'm mesmerized by your eye shadow!", so I guess I was successful at creating an eye-catching look!
Also key to the look is the now classic NARS Orgasm Blush (what better way to compliment sparkly, gold eyes than with the ultimate pinky-gold blush!?) and the lovely YSL Rouge Volupte Sheer Candy in Luscious Cherry, a vibrant cherry pink with fine gold shimmer. It's one of my new favourites! Because all the key features of the face were quite bold and shimmery, I kept the base quite matte and didn't use any other highlighters or accents.
Here's a breakdown of everything I used for the look:
Foundation: Revlon ColourStay Whipped Creme Makeup in Buff
Concealer: NYX Above and Beyond Full Coverage Concealer in 03 Light
Powder: Lush Emotional Brilliance Transluscent Face Powder
Bronzer: Chanel Soliel Tan de Chanel Luminous Bronzing Powder in Sable Rose
Blush: NARS Orgasm Powder Blush
Brows: Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Ash Blonde
Primer: Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden
Eye Shadows: Lush Emotional Brilliance Liquid Liner in Fantasy (as an eye shadow blended out on the lid and as a liquid liner underneath the eye), Laura Mercier eye shadow in Sandstone (as a highlight on inner corners/brow bone), and the deep chocolate brown shade of the NARS Cordura eye shadow duo (in the crease to add definition)
Eyeliner: Revlon ColourStay Liquid Eyeliner Pen in Black
Mascara: Clinique Lash Doubling in Black
Lips: Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Sheer Candy in Luscious Cherry

Over my right shoulder (your left) you can see some festive wall stickers. Penguins with Santa hats and snowflakes, to be exact! They are just some of the fun Christmas decorations that my boyfriend secretly adorned my apartment with. Like a ninja, he visited my apartment when I was out and completely turned it into a winter wonderland. It was one of the nicest and most thoughtful things ever! What a guy <3
I hope everyone has a safe, relaxing, and fun-filled holiday this week! Merry Christmas! :)
