Gold and Glamorous for the Holidays

Happy Holidays Makeup Geeks!

I wanted to do a gold look that you could wear for either New Years, or a Christmas Party that would be very eye catching yet fun to do.  I love this combo of gold eyes with a plum lip!  If the glitter is too much for you, then just do a gold pigment or eyeshadow instead.

Stay safe this season and enjoy the time with your friends and family.

Much love,

This is gorgeous Marlena and very simple. I’ll be trying this look for my work Christmas party this year!

Thanks for the great holiday look! Are you wearing your hair extensions
in this video? And love the nails! Is that gel or nail polish?
How do your lash extensions hold up since you
also wear false lashes and mascara in your tutorials?
Thanks for all your hard work.

Great minds think alike… I was just thinking that the best use for my flat foundation brush would be as a highlighter brush.

very well done…Marlena,
Btw for the skin colour what I had, is it still matching to apply golden/glitter eye shadow like that?
