'Tis The Season to be SEPHORA Glammin'

1:56:00 PM

I can't believe it's December already! Oh my, that was quick! And while everyone seems so busy with shopping and buying gifts for their loved ones, I took the chance to create a look that would go best to any parties that you might be in. Talk about being holiday ready!

And so to start off, I've curated some products that are available at Sephora Philippines to help you re-create this Rose Gold Glam Holiday inspired look. PLUS! get to know an extra tip on how to achieve those sparkly eyes with just craft glitters!

So the first step is priming your face. Applying a primer is a MUST as it protects the first layer of your skin, covering the pores, smoothens your skin and helps your makeup stay longer. The Benefit Porefessional Primer does just that plus it comes in handy for its size!

Next is applying a foundation. I chose the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation because it's oil free, light and full coverage but it provides a radiant complexion making it perfect for this look. You may apply it with a damp beauty blender or a flat top kabuki brush. Make sure to blend up unto the neck.

Third step is to conceal the under eye area, nose line, forehead and the chin. This product is not only good in concealing dark areas of the face but it also makes these areas brighter with its luminous effect. You may also opt to set your concealer with a translucent powder to cover fine lines and prevent creasing which gives your makeup a flawless finish. This process is called "Baking". If you'll be out the whole day, I recommend you to do this.

After these, apply your foundation with a brush all over the face and the neck. 

Next is to apply your blush and highlighter. This palette is perfect as it already has 3 shades of mineral blush ons and the much raved about Champagne Pop highlighter. Apply your preferred blush in a circular motion on the apples of your cheeks using a blush brush then make that glow by adding the highlighter above the cheekbones, the eye arch and the nose.

6. Benefit Hoola Bronzer
Also apply a bronzer to illuminate a slimmer face. Contour the cheek bones, the sides of the forehead and the nose.

7. PIXI Glow Mist
And lastly, cop off your look with a spray of PIXI's glow mist to set all the makeup. 

Achieving this Rose Gold Glam makeup is very easy!
Just follow these steps and don't forget to get crafty! Well, that rhymed! haha

 1. 3CE Eye Primer
So, the first step in prepping our eye makeup is applying a primer. Apply a thin layer of this primer on your eyelids. Eye primers are ideal for all day occasions as it combats oil and prevents creasing. It also helps in prolonging your eye shadow's maximum color.

2. Sephora Collection Matte Metallic Eyeshadow Palette
In creating this look, choose a palette with rosy and neutral hues like this one from Sephora. This palette is perfect for our Halo Smokey eyeshadow look.

What I initially do in applying my eyeshadow is choosing  a base color. Use something light but not too white then choose a light brown shade and continue applying it all over the lid.

Next, choose a darker brown shadow and apply it on the outer v corner and inner corner of the eyes leaving a gap on the center. Just like this.

Then apply a metallic rose gold shade on the center. The key to a perfect eye makeup is blending, so always make sure that you don't leave any harsh lines on the eyes. Everything has to be mixed really well.

Now, the extra fun part. Glitters!

EXTRA TIP: You can buy rose gold glitters from National Bookstore for around Php 29.00. You can use glitter powders but those are really expensive so look for alternatives like this and save more money.

 How to apply it:
Apply a thin layer of eyelash glue on the center of the lid and carefully pat the glitters using a brush. Make sure that it won't get inside your eyes so be extra careful! Let it set and dry. And...Boom! Sparkle!

3. TWEEZERMAN Rose Gold Love Story Gift Set
Using a curler, curl your lashes lightly before applying your false eyelashes. This Rose Gold curler and tweezer duo from Tweezerman is the bomb! It's even perfect to give out as a gift!

4. ARDELL Glamour False Eyelashes
Choose a semi dramatic falsies to go with your look just like this one from Ardell. You may use the Tweezers from Tweezerman in applying this. Also, make sure to cut it to the right length so measure it first.

5. Benefit Roller Lash Mascara Mini
This step is also important. Make sure you apply a mascara to combine your natural eyelashes with the falsies to make it look even more natural. Let the first layer dry a bit and curl it together. This mascara is also one of my favorites!

6. Sephora Smart Liner
Now, on to my favorite part! Apply a black eye liner to finish the look.

And.. VOILA! You're done with your Rose Gold inspired Glam eyes!

7. Benefit Bigger & Bolder Eybrow Kit

But, wait! There's more! Our look wouldn't be complete with boring and unshaped brows so let's make that brow game happen with this super nice kit from Benefit. Everything in this box is the ultimate game changer. Plus! It also comes with stencils that can be really helpful for beginners.

Here's a simple guide to get you started.
