Hey BH readers! Rissrose2 here to share how I’m going to do my Thanksgiving makeup!
Since we are around family during the holidays, I tend to tone down all the flashy make up, but still try play with some color! My must-wear colors for the Thanksgiving holiday are plums, greens and of course copper & orange. I used the 120 Color Eyeshadow Palette 5th Edition since it’s the most neutral palette, but still has vibrant colors to really amp up the look. This palette has a shimmer, almost metallic copper color which is what I placed on my lid, and a sparkly brown shadow onto my outer V. Under my eyes, I applied a vibrant purple layered with a subtle plum just to enhance my eye shape, plus to add slight color!
The lips are kept simple with Office Queen (my favorite “go-to” lip gloss). To contour my face, I used Tahitian Tan and used the same copper eyeshadow on the apples of my cheeks for a glow!
When doing my makeup during the holidays, I think about the family pictures we’ll be taking. I like to look classic! I don’t want to look back years from now, and be like WhaaaAAAAA!?!?! For some reason I think of 80s weddings or 90s weddings.. they are so dated with the hair and makeup! But not this look – add a little shine and color without “dating” it!
