Holiday Series: Shimmery Green & Red Smokey Eye Makeup Tutorial 2016 | Lillee Jean
The basic Christmas colors all of us have come to know, and love happen to be green, red, and sometimes a bit of gold! Now, understanding there are extremes to each color, in example red can be taken as a vibrant hue, or a subdue shade, I decided to put together a super festive smokey eye that encompasses the holiday fully, just with a few workable tones weaved in. Get your blending brushes out, it’s go time love bunnies, ENJOY, XOXO!
Do be noted, as a disclaimer, ALL products were purchased with my own money, anything stated below is MY opinion, and all photos are raw, with minor touch ups of a lighting change, sharpness enhancement or a saturation enhancement. These factors DO NOT physically change the construct of each photo, they make it so you loves can see em’ clearly! Acts of “blurring” are NEVER done. Skin, is skin. If my makeup is not up to par on the lens, then it is not something I shall introduce to you beauties, though this has never, and will be never the case. Information stated below is both cited, and from my own studies. NOTHING has been copied, everything is my ideas, or shared concepts. To not include imagery of FALSE advertisement my skin type is dry/senstive, and any redness, or scabs happen to be hives from sadly…my nerves. With that being said, product recommendations, and your ability to relate might fluctuation, so feel free to ALWAYS ask me questions, this way you don’t end up spending money on the wrong items (for example, I use coconut oil as a base to sooth my hives, but for others this can be too oily, and NOT affective in curing one’s acne, in which I don’t have. Hives come, and go, and can sometimes last only 3 hours, so again, always ask before actually investing in products).
