Red & Green Christmas Glam

I’m back with another Christmas makeup look, except this time I stuck with the traditional red and green color scheme. I used a few new products in creating this look so keep scrolling to see what’s new!

I hope y’all enjoy this makeup look and have a Merry Christmas!!

  • I applied the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk all over my eyelids to act as a base for the green shadow. Doing this will help intensify the pigment of any eyeshadow.
  • I only really used one eyeshadow for this entire look- the darkest green shade from my Morphe 35B palette (but any deep green shade will work). I packed it onto my eyelid and blended it upward into the crease.
  • The glitter liner is from NYX in the shade Glam Lagoon. I bought this eyeliner specifically with this makeup look in mind and I am in love with it! It is really pigmented and easy to apply.
  • Lastly, I just applied a pair of the Kiss lashes in the style Shy (what’s new lol) and then blended that same green eyeshadow on my bottom lashline.


  • I mixed some of my Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation with a little bit of the EX1 Invisiwear foundation and applied this with a damp beauty blender sponge.
  • For concealer I used a new favorite, the Tarte Shape Tape concealer. This product has been raved about since it first launched and it really is amazing!
  • I set my face makeup and concealer with the RCMA No Color powder.
  • I contoured using the Sculpt shade from the Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow palette and bronzed using Benefit Hoola bronzer.
  • For blush, I went with a neutral shade since the eyes and lips are so bold. I used Tarte’s Amazonian Clay blush in Exposed.
  • I highlighted using the PUR cosmetics Elevation Mini Highlighter Palette (this little palette is inexpensive but absolutely amazing + comes with a little fan brush!).


  • For brows, I filled them in using the ABH Brow Wiz in dark brown.
  • The lipstick I am wearing is from Wet N Wild and it is in the shade Cinnamon Spice.

Almost all of the products I used to achieve this Holiday Glam are affordable/drugstore and will still leave you with some extra cash to spend on gifts for friends and family this year. ❤️

  • To brighten the under Eye area and other high points of my face, I used the Maybelline Fit Me concealer in sand

  • I used the Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer to warm up my complexion and then contoured using the sculpt shade from the Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow highlight and contour palette
  • For blush, I used the Maybelline Master Highlight blush/highlight in Mauve
  • For highlighter, I applied a combination of the shades lit, fire, and strobe from the same Tarteist Pro Glow palette


  • I primed my eyes using the same Maybelline concealer I used on my face

  • I applied the eyeshadow shade “the grammy goes glammy” (lol) from Essence all over my lid.
  • Next, I created a dramatic winged liner using the Essence waterproof liquid eyeliner pen
  • I applied a pair of Kiss lashes in the style Shy (my favorite lashes ever!)
  • On the bottom lashline, I used the same Bitten eyeshadow and then applied a coat of mascara on my bottom lashes. I lined my waterline using the L’Oreal Voluminous Smoldering eyeliner


  • I wanted my brows to be a little bit more bold for this look, so I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow pomade in medium brown
  • Lastly, my lip color is the NYX Intense Butter Gloss in the shade Chocolate Apple

Holiday Glam feat. the Tarte Tarteist Pro Amazonian Clay Palette

I feel like almost everybody has been raving about the latest product launches from Tarte cosmetics, especially the Tarteist Pro Amazonian Clay eyeshadow palette. This palette consists of 16 creamy, pigmented matte shades (square pans) and 4 duo-chrome/ metallic shades (circular pans).


I am so in love with this palette and really enjoy the colors and formula of the matte and shimmer shades. I have never tried out any eyeshadow palettes from Tarte before, but after trying this palette I am a big fan!

The Holiday Glam look that I created today is meant to be very simple and not too over the top. I used the shades “Innocent” and “Bold” as my transition shades and then deepened up the crease using the shades “Smoked”, “Mod”, and “Drama”. Then, for the star of this look, I applied the shade “Trendy” all over the lid using my finger. This shade is that famous Mac Blue Brown pigment kind of shade and it looks absolutely gorgeous. I used a little bit of the black shade “Punk” on the outter corner. For the bottom lashline, I smoked it out using the shades “Mod” and “Drama”.




To complete this Holiday Glam makeup look, I used:


  • Eyeko Skinny liquid eyeliner pen to create a winged liner
  • One coat of Jordana Best Lash mascara on my top and bottom lashes
  • Kiss false lashes in the style Shy
  • Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Crayon eyeliner on my waterline


  • Milani Conceal + Perfect foundation in medium beige
  • L.A. Girl Pro Concealer in creamy beige
  • Set my concealer using the RCMA No Color powder
  • Contoured using the Anastasia Beverly Hills light contour kit
  • Bronzed using MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Give Me Sun
  • For blush I used the Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Exposed
  • Used Becca + Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop to highlight

Brows & Lips

  • Filled in my brows using Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in medium brown
  • For lips, I used the NYX lipstick in shade Cocoa and applied Maybelline Shine Shot gloss overtop
