Give Me Some Sparkle {A Holiday Eye Look}

Happy Wednesday loves! I'm so excited to share a fun eye look with you today that I think is great for the holidays. A little extra sparkle for an upcoming holiday party maybe? Eyeshadow is always what I splurge on and what I love to experiment with. Here is a look I created using the Lorac Pro Palette and 1 other product. 



Here is how I created the look-


-You want to apply an eyeshadow primer to your lids first. Check out my faves here
-I mixed mauve & sable and blended them into my crease using windshield wiper motions with a crease brush. This draws the line where you will stop with your lid shade. 
-Use a flat shadow brush and press pewter on the lid, just up to your crease
-Then I used a semi pointed brush to apply deep purple just in the outer v of my eye. Use a light hand here, it's very pigmented. 
-Now with a clean blending brush, BLEND. It's is so important to blend blend blend, no harsh lines ladies. 


-I then used a flat brush and patted cream on my brow bone area, from the top of my crease to my brows. Then I dusted a little bit of nude on top of that for some shimmer. 

The look can be complete after that, but I wanted to add a little extra shimmer on top…because honestly, I just love a little extra shimmer!


-I sprayed another flat shadow brush with my Urban Decay Setting Spray and dipped it into this Mica Shimmer Powder in earth. This is a stunning pink toned shimmer I received in my Ipsy bag a few months ago, so happy I dug it out and started using it! I placed this only on the inner half of my lid, I did not go over where I put the deep purple in the outer v. *Spraying your brush with a setting spray really causes that color to pop and stay put. 

All I did after that was applied black liquid liner and mascara. 


Hope you enjoyed this look, and let me know if you try it out!

  2. Beautiful!! I love seeing looks created with the Lorac palette since I have it, too! I kind of suck at eyeshadow though - I definitely need some more practice! I had no idea about using the setting spray on eye brushes!

  5. This color combination is perfect with your skin! Primer is the way to go when wearing dark(er) eye shadow for me. Without it I get crazy creases!
