Christmas Lights in the Snow


Happy Christmas Eve!  Here's a fun, festive look for the evening that twinkles just like Christmas lights.  On my eyes, I used a silvery white and dark gray eyeshadow.  Then I took eyeshadows in the same colors as the jewels I used and drew soft, short, vertical lines in the pattern of the colors across my upper eyelid.  Then I glued on fake lashes and the jewels over the stripes of color.  Then I finished my face and done.  Sparkle time!

Make Up For Ever's Midnight Glow Palette Swatches

This palette is so pretty for the holidays.  I love the frosty blues, whites, and pinks.  The multi-colored, sparkly purple would make a great smokey eye.  Make Up For Ever also makes the blackest, black eyeshadow in 04 too...loves!  I have an LOTD coming with this palette soon.  I had all the pics, but then my phone crapped out and erased all my photos...fun.  This is the palette I'm giving away in my December giveaway, along with a set of Crown Brushes.  Get your entries in!  Deadline to enter is Friday. 


Colors L to R: Snow White, Gun Metal, Icy Blue, Icy Pink, Black (04), Gold Pink, Midnight Purple, Metallic Taupe (127)
