Your Holiday Makeup Tutorial

With the holidays fast approaching and parties to get fancied up for, we reached out to one of our favourite local makeup artists, Leigh Dickson, for a how-to on her latest holiday look. She breaks down this glamorous style in 8 easy steps.

Leigh Dickson Makeup Tutorial

 

  1. Start by applying a base to the eyelid, preferably using a primer shade close to your skin tone.
  2. Using a creamy black eye pencil roughly map out where you would normally draw a cat eye. Extend the product from the lower lash line towards the eyebrow. Be careful not to apply too much at this point and don’t worry about making it perfect, we’re going to smudge it out!  3) Next using a fluffy blending brush gently smoke out that liner. Use small motions and blend it towards the crease and onto the eyelid.

  4.  Using a light skin toned shimmery shadow highlight the brow bone and inner corner of the eye, above the tear duct.
  5. Now apply a warm dark brown shadow on top of the black base you previously applied. Make sure to blend out the edges to keep the look soft.
  6. To add a metallic pop take a clean shadow brush and wet it. Then dip the brush in a loose pigment, tap off the excess on the brush then apply by patting the product onto the lid and under the lower lash line. Wetting the brush gives the pigment a foiled more metallic look!
  7. Line the waterline using a black eye pencil.
  8. Apply mascara to upper and lower lashes and false lashes if desired. And you’re done!
