Holiday Makeup Inspo!

ChristmasInspo copy

Hi all! I figured since it’s the Holiday season is here, I wanted to make holiday related posts! Today, I wanted to make a post dedicated to holiday makeup looks!

I know I’ve been MIA on my blog, but I’m so excited to be getting back into filming and blogging since school is over and winter break is basically here! (After I take my one final on Monday hehe)

It’s so crazy how my Instagram has grown within the past few months! I was just at 10k followers in October and now I am at 21k+! I couldn’t thank you all enough for supporting me and my passion for makeup!

So I wanted to share with you a few Holiday inspired makeup looks I did these past couple weeks! All of these are cut creases! It’s really exciting because I just started doing cut creases and they were a real challenge for me. All the brushes I use for cut creases are pretty much the same in each look but I’ve included links for you for easy access to the brushes!

Those are the four holiday looks I have done so far! Which one do you like? I’m actually really pleased with the first one! The sea foam green is a beautiful color. Are you a more soft or dramatic type of person?

Also, if you are wondering on how to get the perfect cut crease shape, my secret is to use a concealer or Mac’s paint pot to clean up the crease area and basically cut the crease and create that beautiful shape. It works wonders 😉 another tip is to use an angled brush to get a nice defined crease shape (My favorite is the Sigma E68) and then blending it with a tapered blending brush (Sigma E25).

Let me know if you’re going to try to recreate these looks! I would love to see your work! Make sure to tag me on instagram with #monair so I can see it!

Also, if you haven’t already be sure to check out my Instagram holiday giveaway that is going on right now! One winner will receive the Too Faced & Vegas Nay Star Dust Collection.

I’ll be back tomorrow with a post dedicated to some Christmas present ideas!
