London Moore’s 12 Days of Christmas Special: And on the 3rd Day of Christmas- CELEBRATORY CIGAR SMOKE [Natural Taupes & Browns] Inspired Makeup Tutorial

London Moore’s 12 Days of Christmas Special:

…And on the 3rd Day of Christmas…

Celebratory cigars outside!!  My family always have a Christmas Eve party where people are outside in the cold smoking cigars.  I personally hate cigars & their smoke [seeing that I am pretty much allergic to it…] but it is a part of tradition & I really wanted to showcase a look of neutrals that are SEMI-smokey.  The browns we used [MAC’s “EMBARK” & Covergirl’s “MOCHA MOUSSE”] really give the outer corner of the eyes a hint of smokey eye feel without being too overpowering.  After all, we were aiming for natural with some pazzaz!!

The Inspiration:

The Look:

On The 4th Day of Christmas [Picture] Tutorial:

Put NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil on the inner corner of your eyelid

Blend it out :] and then put the matte white colour on from NYX 5 Colour Eyeshadow Palette called “I DREAM OF ST. KITT”

]

Then use the light brown colour from the same NYX 5 Colour palette & start from the outter corner of your eye lid [where you pack on the colour] and then blend it out going towards your inner corner of you eye; kind of making a sideways 7 shape.

Now use Covergirl’s Eye Enhancer “MOCHA MOUSSE” rich matte brown on the left side of the palette & dab it on the outer most corner of your lid.

Blend it out & then put a small amount of MAC’s eyeshadow “EMBARK” over the MOCHA MOUSSE- this evens out the colours in order for them to blend best with the neutral colours we have used thus far.

Put on your eyeliner on top & in your waterline.

Then finish off your brown semi-smokey neutral eyes with NYX’s “VANILLA SHIMMER”  eyeshadow to highlight right under your brow bone!  Put on mascara & your done!!

Est c’est fin!

Came the Cranberry & Popcorn Christmas tree garland makeup tutorial!!  Hey everyone, and Merry holiday season :]  for the last 12 days till Christmas I am putting up a makeup tutorial each and everyday that is inspired by this blessed holiday season!!  So, naturally today is our FIRST of the 12 day special & it is a makeup look comprised of gorgeous golds, cranberry-maroons & coppers, and nude tones.  This is a quick and easy tutorial [only 4 minutes long] and it really looks spectacular for this holiday season!!

The Inspiration:

I’ve never made a cranberry & popcorn garland before, but what  made me think of it was a Christmas episode of Gilmore Girls where they are sitting down together and making this festive garland!

Lorelai: [To Gigi] Very pretty, honey.

Rory: Hey, what a good job.

Lorelai: You know what I really like? Your cranberry-to-popcorn ratio — Rory’s more of a one-to-one kind of gal, but I’m like you, I like a lot of cranberry, a little popcorn thrown in for flair. [aside to Rory] Yours is pretty too.

Rory: Thank you.

Ha if you watch the show at all…. You know EXACTLY how to read that :] fast & with the right inflections!!
