December 2018

Happy December! Cait's younger sister Hannah was kind enough to let us use her lovely face while she was in town, so we created this simple six-product look inspired by Hannah's ballet days, with sugar plummy-eyes and rosy cheeks.

On eyes, we used Desiccated in the outer corners under the eyes and up past the crease. We blended the crease with Two Hands Means Two Mugs of Cocoa, and applied Mulled Wine In The Bathtub to the inner halves of each lid for a slightly pinkish glow.

To highlight, we used Every Blanket In The House liberally at the inner corners, also applying it in the center of the lid for additional brightness. Soft winged liner and mascara completed the eye look.

Yule blush was applied to the apples of the cheeks for a rosy glow, and we used Every Blanket In The House again as a facial highlight on cheekbones, forehead, nose bridge, chin, and cupid's bow.

Fire Whiskey lip gloss, lightly applied and blotted down in two layers, provided a warm pinky-red lip to complete the look.
