Have your holiday parties all sorted out yet?
Since we are almost half-way through November, it’s time to start thinking about holiday party outfits. I’ve already started checking out some stores here in the mall, but the one thing I can get down with is the hair and makeup. With the holiday season comes sequins, and why just stop at wearing them on your body when you can incorporate them into your makeup as well?
Yves Rocher recently sent me their holiday collection, which is always a highlight for me every year. Not only is the makeup fab, but I always love the bath and body products that they release in the line. This years’ offering includes scents Spicy Vanilla and Apple Delight. But that’s for another post; we’re chatting makeup this time around.
Included in the line are shadows, creme eyeshadows, lip products, and tons of nail polish! Some of these items are similar to past collections, but the real showstopper for me was the loose glitter, which is for your nails (I actually used this on my eyes) and the shadow pencils. Inspired by the gold glitter in the collection, I wore this look for a charity event, but it’s totally transitional for the holiday season.
1. Working on the brows first, I filled them in using Smashbox Brow Tech Matte Pencil in Taupe and then the Brow Tech Highlight Stick in Bronze Shimmer (which adds some extra dimension to your brows).
2. With the Yves Rocher Eye Pencil in Frosted Pink Champagne (C$5.95 each), I applied this on my lids to act as a primer.
3. Using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Shadow Couture palette, I lightly dusted Morocco in my crease.
4. With Noir from the same palette and a pencil brush, I carved out my crease. It’s okay if this is a bit messy.
5. Using Fudge and a fluffy crease brush, lightly blend out the black colour.
6. Now for the glitter. I used Stila Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eyeshadow in Kitten, then went over top with Yves Rocher Loose Glitter in Champagne Rose (probably not recommended for your eyes, however, I had no issues with it. Just be careful!).
7. Line your upper lash line (I used the limited-edition Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper), then apply some coats of mascara and falsies. I used CoverGirl The Supersizer mascara and lashes by Velour.
8. Using a combination of Fudge and Noir, line your lower lash line. After, apply a nude cream shadow to your waterline and finish off your lower lashes with some mascara.
9. For the face, I used Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able Full Coverage foundation in Beige Medium with Emani HD Corrective Concealer for under my eyes. To set my concealer I used the Smashbox Step-by-Step Contour Kit, as well as for my contour. To highlight I used Becca highlighter in Champagne Pop.
To complete the look I went with big hair and a sparkly romper (very holiday appropriate). For my scent, I used Yves Rocher So Elixir for a sensual scent. For the nails, I wore Pearly Purple with the Silver Glitter Top Coat (both by Yves Rocher).
If you are looking for great gifts for the holidays, Yves Rocher’s products are very inexpensive and luxurious. I have many items from the brand, and although they have a handful of stores here in Canada, their e-commerce site is great because they often offer amazing deals on their products.
What have you got your eye on from Yves Rocher’s holiday collection?
