London Moore’s 12 Days of Christmas Special: And on the 5th Day of Christmas- SUGAR PLUM DREAMS [Pink & Purple] Inspired Makeup Tutorial

London Moore’s 12 Days of Christmas Special:

…And on the 5th Day of Christmas…

Sugar Plums danced in our heads!!  Hi everyone- Christmas is getting nearer and nearer!!  And as we get closer and we’re over our halfway mark of this series… I wanted to branch out and do the not-so-average Christmas colours.  Pink & purple don’t scream Christmas, but they do say “sugar plums”!!  So we have bright & bold eyes with a soft pink lip to match.

The Inspiration:

The Look:


On The 5th Day of Christmas [Picture] Tutorial:

Cover your entire lid with NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil “MILK” as well as your under eye

Blend it all over & out

Using the neon pink in ELF’s 144 palette- start OUTSIDE the corner of your eye and then carry it over 3/4 of the lid.  As well as under your waterline below.

Now, you can use tape- but I prefer using an envelope or paper of some sort because putting tape on our skin messes with the elasticity of your skin [which will be very important in later years!!].  So take an envelope and create and angle from the outer corner of your eye, and just go up and out.

Then using the deepest purple [on the bottom row] pat your brush along the point where the envelope and your skin meet- thus creating a harsh line.  Also bring the purple 1/4 of the way onto your lid.

Then blend where the 2 colours meet.  Also blend the purple to follow your crease all the way to the corner of your inner eye [do this very lightly though- a soft effect].

Then using the same purple and an angled brush- create a thick eyeliner line.  And also take the purple and put it under your waterline to meet the pink.

Now using the top champaign colour in the ELF palette- highlight your brow bone.

Now for liner- wing out the top to follow your purple straight line & the bottom is going to wing out as well.

Now take NYX “MILK” eye pencil and with a small angled brush pop it into the small fish tail we created with the eyeliner & blend it outwards.  After this- pop on eyelashes and you are done with your eyes!

As for your lips- put on NYX “FlLOWER” thin lip liner [keep in mind- if you want your lips to look fuller, put the liner right on the outside of you actual lip line] & then use MAC’s Prolongwear Lip Creme “OVERTIME” to create this soft lip.

As for the final touches- your cheeks are ONLY going to have MAC’s iridescent powder.  we really want a candied glowing look.

Est c’est fin!
