London Moore’s 12 Days of Christmas Special: And on the 6th Day of Christmas- COAL [Metallic Grays & Charcoal] Inspired Makeup Tutorial

London Moore’s 12 Days of Christmas Special:

…And on the 6th Day of Christmas…

I was completely horrible and therefore received COAL…. dun, dun, dun!! There is not much more to say about this look other than I did a DUO-SLAM… which I hardly ever do.  But I did “coal” inspired eyes with a NYX “pinky” lip.

The Inspiration:


On The 6th Day of Christmas [Picture] Tutorial:

Use NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Milk on 3/4 of the lid & Black Bean on the last outer 1/4

Using a blending brush- blend the colours to mesh & fade out

Using NYX Smokey Eyes Palette- use their brightest white [bottom right] on the inner corner of your eye.  Pop it right onto the Milk eye pencil.   Also bring the colour all the way out to the left and down under your waterline as well.

Then do the same with the granit/charcoal colour [top right] & pop it onto the Black Bean eye pencil area.  Then blend it down under your waterline as well.

Now using the lightest gray colour in the palette [2nd from the right] pop it in the center where you have yet to put any shadow.  Then again, in the center under your waterline.

Now go through and so some SERIOUS blending!! Make it so that one colour just FADES into the next…  Also repeat this on the bottom [under your waterline].

Now to highlight under your brow-bone, use the champaign colour [top left] and just pop it right under your eyebrow- then blending this colour with all the rest- very subtly!!

Now put black eyeliner 1/2 the way ON your waterline & using the Milk jumbo eye pencil- do the other 1/2.  Where they meet- overlap some, it’ll naturally make the area gray.

Now using your liquid liner- do your eyeliner on top- and wing it out [but slightly]

Now using whatever sort of glitter eyeliner you have- trace it across your black liner.  We want glitter flecks here- not a solid line.

Now dab your liner onto a surface [I used my wrist] and using my 239 brush I am swirling the glitter around in hopes of only catching the glitter flecks and drying up all the liquid… I am then dabbing the glitter from the brush onto my lid.  Make the glitter even!! Don’t clump it all up…


For my lips- I wanted them to be a bit bigger and bolder, so with my lipliner I traced JUST OUTSIDE of my natural lip line… And then used NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil “Chaos” to fill in.

As for cheeks- I used the products listed below… But I’m using a palette I cannot for the life of me remember where it is from… But anyhow, the colour is a soft pink hue with some golden/peachy tones.  And then I put MAC’s iridescent powder all over it!
