THELOOK: A Sugar Plum Holiday
GLISTENING AND SWEET is how I would describe the holiday mood I am already in, although it is only early November. I was inspired to use some divine products by Rouge Bunny Rouge to create the first holiday look of the season here on VanityRouge. Many pieces I’m using today were part of RBR’s summer collection but they are still available. The soft, glistening and smooth textures make this look ideal for wear all year long, but especially now that it is close to the holidays, it reminds me especially of sweet candied treats (most notably “sugar plums”)… although I must confess I’ve never actually tried a “sugar plum” myself!
• 1 •
Prep the skin with Prelude in the Clouds Aqua Primer to give the skin a light cover of hydration.
• 2 •
Apply RBR Tinted Moisturiser in Adansonia to even out the skin, layering where needed.
• 3 •
Pat Delicate Hummingbird Long-Lasting Eye Shadow on the lid and into the crease. Blend out the edges with a clean brush.
• 4 •
Using the applicator tip, apply Eaten All the Cherries Loose Glitter Pigment on inner corner of eyes. Blend into the inner 1/3 of the lids with a soft angled brush.
• 5 •
Apply Quartz Eyeliner Devotion Ink in Amethyst Essence to the lower lashline. Add a blackened brown kohl pencil to the upperlashline and lower rims if desired, and finishe off with your favorite mascara.
• 6 •
To warm up the skin, take the Bronzing Glow Powder in At Goldcombe Bay on a fluffy brush and apply to cheeks, hairline and jawline. (Add a peach or pale pink blush to the cheeks if you want a little more color.)
• 7 •
To add a beautiful sheen to the cheekbones, take Sea of Clouds Highlighting Liquid and blend it into the tops of the cheekbones, browbone and cupid’s bow.
• 8 •
Because this look is so sweet, next add a glistening pink to the lips with Cherry Clafoutis Glassy Gloss to make the lips look juicy!
