2012 Holiday Dinner/Party Makeup Tutorial - Smokey Copper Eyes

Hi Bellas,

Happy after Thanksgiving!  So today's tutorial was supposed to go up before Thanksgiving here in the US but this video gave me some major technical difficulties.  Regardless, I still wanted to show you this great Fall, Holiday look that will be perfect to wear to dinner/parties with your friends and family.  I decided to do a more bold eye and nude lip which is very food eating friendly, lol.  Check it out!
Check out the video!



The Final Look!
I'm in love with fall colors - oranges, burgundies and browns.  I was inspired by the colors of the autumn leaves and brought that to my eyes.  The eye look is actually a pretty basic smokey eye technique with darkest at the base and lightest at the top.
Don't you hate when you have an eyeshadow with glitter that looks great on the pan but doesn't show up when applied?  I decided to bring out the copper glitter in my Brown Anastasia shadow by dotting on some specks using my Stila Copper Glitter Liner.
To make sure my lips last, I filled them in completely with a pretty pinky lip pencil from Jordana.  I topped it with a Tarte Lipsurgence pencil which is just a sheer pink gloss.  The lip liner will last all night even though eating and the sheer gloss is effortless to apply to add back moisture.

Here's What I Used:

FACE
Makeup Forever Face and Body Foundation
Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer in Medium
Palladio Herbal Concealer in Banana
Ben Nye Banana Face Powder
MAC MSF Natural in Medium Dark
MAC Pro Sculpting Cream in Copper Beech
MAC Blunt blush

I hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial!   do want to take the opportunity to say I'm thankful for everyone of you who spends a bit of their day with me here on my blog - I truly appreciate it.  Happy After Thanksgiving and Happy Cyber Shopping Monday!
