~ Wine and Berries Look ~

November 28, 2009

Well groomed brows and a flawless foundation are the base for this daytime look. While I love doing dramatic looks for others, my personal preference when doing my own makeup is to indulge in color but in a light and natural way.

These colors were inspired by the wines and berries so abundant in the Holiday season. With such rich colors, a light blush or contour is and a natural lipcolor is a perfect finish. As always, I apologize for the poor quality of the amateur photos, but I hope you get the idea;)

I used a wide variety of affordable and easy to find products to create this look.

Revlon Colorstay Foundation
Loreal Colormatch Concealer
Sally Hansen by Carmindy Powder
Sally Hansen by Carmindy Eye Primer
MAX Factor for Blush/Contour

Various Berry and burgundy shades from the Coastal Scents 78 Pallet
Black Eyeliner
Maybelline Full and Soft Mascara
Brown shade in the CS Pallet to fill in brows

Ulta Cream Lipliner
Sephora lipcolor

You can dress this up in 3 easy steps by:

1. Blending bit of black shadow into the outer corner and lower lashline
2. Add a hint of berry colored gloss to lips
3. Brush a bit of highlighter to the top of cheeks

…and the additions would be perfect to attain a glamorous evening look perfect for Holiday parties. Take it even further by adding false lashes and/or some glitter for a more dramatic flair….

No matter what you choose to do to make the most of your look, be sure to enjoy your Holidays and cherish the ones you love this season and always.
