Holiday Makeup Look Inspired by the December Marie Claire Cover

It’s the day after Thanksgiving, so that means it’s appropriate for me to bring on all the Christmas! I’ve got a really fun makeup tutorial for you guys today. It’s inspired by the December 2015 cover of Marie Claire! I love the bronze smoky look that Amber Heard is sporting on the cover, and I thought it would be a really great holiday look.

I have loved Marie Claire magazine for years. I’m a huge Nina Garcia and Project Runway fan. I love their editorial content, and I always look forward the Project Runway spreads. I always find myself in a fashion rut, and Marie Claire always seems to give me inspiration with fashion and beauty trends. I’ve especially loved this most recent issue for gift ideas, fashion ideas, and holiday beauty looks. I love that Marie Claire highlights important seasonal trends from which you create your own beauty and fashion looks.

Speaking of which, I was totally inspired to create this makeup look for you guys. I think this look is perfect for those who don’t like to step too far out of their comfort zones for when they get glammed up.

    Okay, this is THE perfect holiday look. I am so iffy when it comes to makeup – while you look made up perfectly… I end up looking like I had a run in with powder and a door. lol

    I’m definitely going to try this! I want to look extra purdy this December because um, Christmas… and my birthday!

    Wishing you a lovely day.
