DIY- Holiday Makeup Cranberry Eyes

Have a holiday party or family get together and want to look festive? I have created this super simple look perfect for the holidays. Feel free to use colors you already have to recreate this look.
These are the products I used:

Urban Decay Naked Palette- Colors Buck (matte dark brown), Hustle (dark purple), Half Baked (gold) and Virgin (pearl color)

NYX Rust eyeshadow

NYX Shadow Trio in Ultra Chic

Urban Decay Primer Potion

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Rust

Smashbox Mascara

Urban Decay Zero Black Eye Liner- not pictured

Revlon Colorburst Lipstick- 045 Raspberry

Milani- Mai-Tai Blush

1)First prime you eye. This insures that the eyeshadow will stay in place and prevent creasing.

2) Using your jumbo eye pencil, fill in the 3/4 most outside of you lid just to the creasing. Smooth with your finger. Do not pay attention to how it looks right now, this is used to intensify the color.

3) Using a small shader brush, apply cranberry eyeshadow over jumbo eye pencil on lid. Use a fluffy brush to blend out any harsh lines.

4) Using a crease brush, use Urban Decay Buck and blend into crease.

5) Using a small brush, use Urban Decay Virgin on brow bone for highlight.

6) Using small shader brush, place Urban Decay Half Baked into inner eye lid.

7) Using a blending brush, blend Half Baked and Rust so that there are no harsh lines.

8) Using a small brush, Sweep NYX Ultra Chic (center shadow) into corner of eye and a little under the tear duct.

9) Using a domed crease brush, intensify outer corner of eye with Urban Decay Hustle.

10) Line you upper and lower lashes with eyeliner.

11) Use your favorite mascara to finish your eyes.

To complete the holiday look, I used Revlon Colorburst lipstick in Raspberry and Milani's Mai-Tai blush.
I love how this look turned out. It is very festive you can wear it with a pair of jeans or a glamorous holiday outfit. Let me know if you try this look out. Happy Holiday!
