In the second installment of my holiday inspired series, I decided to do a sultry red lip with delicate gold flecks. I figure if there’s any time to wear red lips, it’s the holidays – plus the gold gives just the right amount of festive flare. Not to be confused with pieces of flare, or course. Although, when you consider how much bling I wear on a daily basis, I’m pretty much a giant, walking piece of flare.
In any case, check out the tutorial below to get these luscious holiday lips, then read on after the jump for a list of the products I used as well as some less expensive duplicates =)
Revlon Photoready Concealer (as a base)
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Lipliner – Gash (Revlon Colorstay Lipliner in Red is a good, less expensive dupe for this one)
NYX Lipliner – Currant (Outline)
MAC Lipstick – Russian Red (L’Oreal Infallible Le Rouge Lipstick in Ravishing Red is also a great color and it costs half as much)
Philosophy Lipgloss - Candy Cane (any clear gloss will due, this just happens to be what I had on hand)
LORAC 3D Liquid Lustre (you can pretty much use any gold pigment, eye shadow or glitter as long as it’s cosmetic grade)
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmaaaaas….oooooOoooon my f*ckin faaaace! HA, that’s a good Christmas carol, I should record that.
But before I get started on my “A Very Jackie Christmas” cd, I decided to do a holiday tutorial for you guys. I look forward to the holidays every year, especially now that I’m a beauty guru as it gives me a chance to put together a series of festive looks for all your holiday parties. The first installment is the glittery, icy blue look I’ve decided to call Snow Fairy at the suggestion of my YouTube viewers. It’s super sparkly, super easy and affordable. It’s like the gift that keeps on giving!
You can always opt to wear this blue eye look without the glitter if you’re not a fan, but I feel like it really brings everything together and makes it look like freshly fallen snow on your eyelids. And it looks absolutely lovely when the light catches the tiny flecks of iridescent sparkle.
Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation – 160 Rich Ginger
LORAC Evening Out Complexion Kit – Tan
LORAC TANtalize Baked Bronzer
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil – Pacific (lid)
NYX Color Chrome Pigment – Blue Eyes (lid)
Too Faced Glamor To Go Spun Sugar Palette – Dark Gray (Crease), Black (outer v)
NYX Single Eyeshadow – White (highlight)
Prestige Classic Lipliner – Cameo
Urban Decay Super Saturated Lipcolor – Naked
Benefit Sugarbomb Lipgloss
Here’s my Christmas Haul video, for those of you who either wanna get a closer look at what I got or just like watching me act like a jackass =) I had a lot of cough medicine prior to filming, so I was on one. Enjoy!
Hello fellow beauty lovers, greetings from the land of the fabulous! I know I’ve been quite this week and I owe it all to this miserable cold I caught that just doesn’t wanna go away. I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday weekend, mine was really good despite the sniffling and coughing. My family and I went away to a charming little cabin in Yosemite and had a cute little Christmas out in the woods complete with nighttime beer drinking/star gazing. And of course, an amazing pile of gifts on Christmas morning! I know you guys love my Christmas hauls, so here is a sneak peak of what I got, before I even make my haul video!
This is pic of my collective haul, it’s so big I had to back aaaaaall the way into the wall to get it all. I got everything from jewelry new yoga pants to beauty products and a high end Snuggie. Yes, I am a spoiled little princess, even though I’m all grown up =)
Naturally I got a bunch of beauty goodies since that’s the thing everyone knows I like. My mom got me the Sephora Collection Makeup Studio Blockbuster, which let me tell you is even more amazing in person. I can’t WAIT to start playing with this one! My Stepdad gave me the Stila Ultimate Color Palette -which I’ve been dying to get my hands on- as well as a Sephora gift card which I’m pretty sure I’ll be using to get the new UD Naked Palette. Oh, and did you see the adorable hairdryer there? Mom found that it Ulta – how cute is that!?
The shoes – oh the shoes! Just look at these, I seriously wish I had more feet so I could wear them all at once. The black Jessica Simpson pumps are perfect for work, while the Forever 21 heels are so hot I’m saving them for New Years. And the tan Steve Madden’s, well you KNOW I’ve already broken those in. I love them!
This was the most random gift, but how AWESOME is this coffee mug? Not only is it pink, but it has a bedazzled mirror on it! My Stepdad got this for me because in his words, “it is SO JACKIE!” Ad he couldn’t have been more right. I took this thing to work today and used it to check my lipgloss during my meetings. I can’t believe someone didn’t think of this sooner. Brilliant, just brilliant.
I’ll get more in detail about all this stuff when I film my haul video tomorrow night. It’s been a few weeks so I’m dying to get back in the game! Until then, I’m gonna get some sleep and see if I can’t shake this raspy voice in time to film. Goodnight all!
