Christmas lights makeup

I’m not making many New Year’s resolutions, but here’s one. I want to create more makeup looks, show my creativity and really get better at it. I’ve already started to share more makeup videos and tutorials on Instagram, and I will keep doing tutorials here too, but I feel like I could do even more. I’m already visioning another version of this look, for example. But! I want to document my progress. That’s why I post things that I’m not necessarily always 100 % happy with. It’s so easy to see the mistakes – especially for me. Always striving for better and better. So maybe the real challenge is to push myself to get better, but enjoy the journey as well.

I was thinking that today and remembered that I really wanted to create this look last year, but didn’t. Well, here I am, 20.12.19 – just in time to post this before Christmas.

Christmas lights makeup tutorial

  1. Draw a black line on your face using an eyeliner or a black pencil. That acts as the strings to your Christmas lights.
  2. Draw colorful balls on the strings – as the lights.
  3. Contour the balls a bit using a cool toned bronzer. This helps to make the lights look more 3D.
  4. Finally add some light to the balls with some white. You can also add glitter to them to make the sparkle!

As for the products used, I used mellow cosmetics black liquid liner for the strings and face paint for the lights. I contoured with Hoola Bronzer and added Urban Decay’s Distortion glitter liner as glitter.
