Holiday 2014 Warm and Cool Eyeshadow Looks

I'm sorry for the late posting of holiday looks but I created a warm and cool look just in time for New Years!  

Here's a picture of the shadows used:
BareMienerals Ready 2.0 in The Flashback, Urban Decay Naked Basics, SugarPill's Heart Breaker, Too Faced Pretty Rebel, BareMierals Loose Eyeshadow in Pebble, SugarPill's Loose Pigment in Goldilux
From the palettes I used the following shadows:
Heart Breaker - Velocity
Pretty Rebel - Too Fetch
Naked Basics - Crave and Venus
BareMinerals Ready 2.0 The Flashback - Deja Vu & Amnesia

I also used Brown from the Lorac Mega Pro Palette (not pictured).

If you don't have the exact shadows used, just substitute something you have in your stash that's close.

Warm Look:

Step 1: Apply a primer, preferably one a little tacky since we will be using loose pigments.  I use Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden.
Step 2: Buff Pebble or another matte light brown in the crease as a transition shade.
Step 3: Pat Goldilux or your gold of choice all over the lid
Step 4: Buff Brown from the Lorac Mega Pro Palette or another darker matte brown in the crease
Step 5: Lightly trace Totally Fetch from Too Faced or another fuchsia color on the upper crease. Blend into crease.
Step 6: Pat Venus from the Naked Basics palette on brow bone.
Step 7: Trace Totally Fetch on the lower lashline
Step 8: Mix Brown on the lower lashline with Totally Fetch
Step 9: Use your preferred liner and mascara.  In this look I used a gold eyeliner on my lower waterline.

Cool Look:

Step 1:  Apply Deja Vu from the Bareminerals 2.0 The Flashback Palette or use another cool silver of your choice
Step 2: Buff Amnesia from the same BareMinerals Palette or a cool gray/charcoal color of your choice.
Step 3: Trace Crave from the Naked Basics palette or any black eyeshadow on the outer V and buff into crease.  Keep adding the black color until desired intensity.
Step 4: Lightly trace Velocity from the Sugarpill Heart Breaker Palette or another cool blue eyeshadow of your choice on the upper crease.  Blend into the crease.
Step 5: Pat Venus from the Naked Basics palette on the brow bone and inner corner to highlight.
Step 6: Use the liner and mascara of your choice.  I used a bright blue eyeliner on the lower waterline for a fun pop of color.

I hope you enjoyed these holiday looks!  Have fun and drink responsibly!
