Holiday Makeup Transformation


It took me a lot of guts to put my bare face out there, but I just had to show you the total transformation.

Recently, Hayley and I popped into our local Chanel counter to take back a broken lip pencil and ended up buying more than we intended to.  One of the purchases was this beautiful limited holiday eye palette.fullsizeoutput_3830.jpegfullsizeoutput_3831.jpegfullsizeoutput_3834.jpeg

I just had to let Hayley do her “thang” with it.  And, boy did she!!

Using all of my new products and a few of her own favorites, she made me beautiful.  I intend her replicate this look for NYE.

Here’s what she did:fullsizeoutput_3835.jpegStarting with eyes first, she made me have eyebrows!!fullsizeoutput_3836.jpegShe then applied the eye primer, concealer and powder.

Taking the maroon color, she applied to the outer corners of the lid.  She wiped away excess with a makeup wipe.fullsizeoutput_3834fullsizeoutput_3841.jpeg

Lastly for the shadows, she swiped the inner lid with the gold and pink shades.
