A few months ago I shared with you my skin care routine with Glo Skin Beauty, and today I am back with Glo to share a quick and easy holiday makeup look.
I hardly ever do a bold smokey eye, but there is something about the holidays that begs for a little more glam. For this holiday makeup look, I paired a smokey eye with a bold red lip, using Glo Skin Beauty products from prepping my skin for product, down to the finishing touch. Best of all, this holiday makeup look only takes about 30 minutes from start to finish, making it a quick and easy holiday makeup routine.
To start my holiday makeup, I applied the Daily Power C serum. This is my secret weapon guys! Vitamin C is so essential in protecting your skin from environmental pollutants, add it even brightens the skin, which I am a huge fan of, since I’m on a no-sun spots mission (see what I mean here). I start with this product every single day. After it completely dries, I apply a moisturizer. I have combination skin, so I really like this Oil-Free Moisturizer, because it tackles the dry parts of my face without adding oil to the oilier parts.
After prepping my face, I apply the Satin Cream Foundation (I’m wearing “natural”, for reference.) I’m not sure if Glo changed this formula when they changed from Glo Minerals, to Glo Skin Beauty, but I really liked this version so much more. The coverage is amazing and it goes on so smooth.
I’ve been really into “baking” my makeup, lately. If you’re not familiar with the term, it’s basically applying your concealer and highlighter, and dusting with a finishing powder, allowing it to sit for 5-10 minutes (aka bake) before brushing off the excess. This process is a dream for those with dark under eye circles, like me. For this look, I used the Oil Free Camouflage concealer, Liquid Bright concealer, and Luminous Setting powder. For concealers, I always go 2-3 shades lighter than my actual face, to add a highlight effect. Once, applied, I go on to do my eyebrows, as I let everything sit-in, or “bake”.
I know I have said it before, but I never leave home with my my eyebrows. I’ve used Glo’s Brow Quad Kit (last seen here) for years, but wanted to give the brow pencil a try, for this look. I really love this pencil, because the other end comes with a spoolie, so you can blend the product together.
Once I’ve applied my eyebrows, it’s the perfect time to brush away the excess powder from under my eyes.
For the eye makeup, I used my trusty Glo Skin Beauty Shadow Palette. I use this one every single day! It has the perfect combination of colors, no matter what look you are going for. For this particular look, I used the grays and blacks, but I tend to use more of the creams and browns for everyday wear.
No holiday makeup look would be complete without a signature red lip. I have always been obsessed with Glo Skin Beauty’s lip crayons (see this post), but their lipsticks are just as great. I’m wearing “bullseye” below.
