Instagram Holiday Makeup Tutorials

I LOVE Holiday makeup.  I think it’s because clients let me do more bold looks for their Holiday parties.  And I can use GLITTER!  I think everyone needs to add a little sparkle to their look.  Don’t you? I started scanning Instagram for some inspiration and I found some great ideas.

Here are some of my favorite artists called “The Motives Mavens” and some of the gorgeous looks they created:

Here @elymarino gives us this show stopping look using Motives Cosmetics:
Ely sparkle eye
1.Begin by applying “Paper Doll” slightly above the crease
2.Taking “Vino” apply in the outer corner of the eyes and sweep into the crease
3. Taking “Glitter Glue” apply to the crease then using “Aspire” glitter apply over top
4.Using “LBD” gel liner apply your winged liner
5.Line the lower water line using “Sterling Silver” eye kohl, then taking “Vino” smudge out any harsh lines!
6.Highlight the inner corner of the eyes using “Allure” paint pot
7. Put on your favorite stiletto and own the night!
