2011 Holiday Makeup Tutorial - MAC Merry Berry Christmas

Hi Bellas,

I'm finally back with a tutorial and it's just in time for Christmas this year.  I decided to do a wine and berry inspired look for the holidays.  This is a twist on the red dramatic lip that you usually see with Holiday looks. I actually wore this to a Sole Society Blogger event last week but loved it so much I decided to recreate it for you all!


Check out the video!


Unfortunately I didn't have my digital camera at the time of filming this tutorial.  I had left it at the blogger event I attended that week and was waiting for it in the mail lol.  Instead, here are pictures from the first time I created the look.  This version is a bit more amped up.

Here are the MAC shadows I used to create the look:

Here's a better shot of the colors on the eyes.
Time to add in the lips!

If you end up doing this look, I'd love to see video responses or pictures.  I'm off to Iowa for the holiday's the visit the BF's family and his brand new niece.  I'm excited for the White Christmas.  I'll be bringing this lip combination with me on the trip!

I'm a huge fan of this whole look especially the mint purse. I think this is such a cute look but what you talked about is true and it's a good message.
