Mary Kay Holiday Romance Makeup Look and Giveaway



*The products received in this post were provided to me by Mary Kay Inc. for the purposes of review.
The holiday season is fast approaching and that means, among other things, that you will be attending many events, parties, dinners, etc. That is when things can get really fun. Think of all the opportunities you will have to wear makeup that is outside your everyday comfort zone. For today's makeup look I paired up with Mary Kay to present to you my take on a romantic holiday look. It deviates from the typical gold eyes/red lips holiday look and has a softer, more feminine feel. Also, be sure to check out the end of this post to see how you can win your own Mary Kay® products and $100 VISA Gift Card!
Here is a list of the products from Mary Kay that I used to create this look:
- True Dimensions® Lipstick – Rosette $18
- Lip Liner – Neutral $12
- Cream Blush – Sheer Bliss $14
- Mineral Cheek Blush – Shy Blush
- Mineral Eye Color – Spun Silk, Lavender Fog, and Driftwood $7
- Lash Love Mascara – I Heart Black
- Eyeliner – Deep Brown

All prices are suggested retail.
Want to purchase any of these? Contact your Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant or connect with one at marykay.com
Here are the necessary steps to achieve this romantic holiday look:

1. Use your favorite concealer, foundation, and powder. Special occasions are not the time to experiment with complexion products. Go with what you know works and photographs well.

2. Starting with the eyes, apply the lightest color (Spun Silk) to the brow bone and inner corners. On the center of the lid I applied Shy Blush, a pink powder blush with golden sheen. An unusual choice, but you should never hestitate to use a product for a different purpose than what it's labeled for. On the outer corners I added the color Lavender Fog. Finally, I tied it all in with Driftwood in the crease.

3. I lined my upper and lower waterlines with Mary Kay's Deep Brown eyeliner and finished the eyes with two coats of Lash Love® Mascara.

4. On my cheeks I used Sheer Bliss, a beautiful dewy cream blush.

5. Since I didn't want anything to compete with the soft pink and lavender eyes, I lined my entire lips with the nude lip liner (Neutral) and applied Rosette only in the center of the lips.
