Christmas Lighting Inspired Bright Look

I did a look using Christmas lights as an inspiration. It's a very bright look & nothing about it is Christmas-like.

Here's the inspiration picture that I used. I took the picture without flash at night & didn't stay still so excuse the blurry picture. It was snowing as well!
The colours that I used for inspiration in this look were from the lights put up on the trees (yellow, orange, red, green, & blue), the candy light fixtures (red & green), & the snow (white).
Since the eyes were so colourful, I didn't want to add too much colour to my cheeks or lips.
I just contoured my cheeks using a bronzer & swept the brush on the apples of my cheeks with whatever product was left over on the brush. I applied a nude gloss on my lips.
Products Used:
  • Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse in Pure Beige (Medium 2)
  • Urban Decay Primer Potion [base for eyeshadows]
  • 120 palette (1st edition): white-L1, yellow-F5, orange-E6, red-S5 and Q5, green-E4, blue-H2 [look below for reference charts]
  • MAC Penultimate Eye Liner in Rapidblack
  • Almay Blendable Eye Pencil in Black
  • Rimmel Glam Eyes Mascara in 003 Extreme Black
  • Annabelle Cosmetics Zebra Bronzing Powder - Haute Gold
  • Bonnebell lipLITES in Cappuccino

120 palette (1st edition) reference charts



Quite unexpected & different from the usual Christmas party looks that beauty bloggers & vloggers usually focus on this time of the year, isn't it? ;)
