It’s been basically a year since I’ve done a pictorial. So, with less than one week until Thanksgiving, why not bring it back to share with you guys a five-minute eye look using the Marc Jacobs See-Quins Glam Glitter Eyeshadow.
This look uses one eyeshadow and five quick steps to get a gorgeous multidimensional look perfect for the holidays.
Step 1: Using a blending brush, sweep your bronzer or contour into your crease. This helps bring in color from the rest of your face, while also giving the shadow something to blend out onto.
For this step, I used one of my Project Pan products- the Make Up For Ever Pro-Finish Multi-use Foundation Powder.
Step 2: Press the Marc Jacobs See-Quins shadow all over your entire lid, dragging it slightly into the crease.
This is one of the Marc Jacobs 2018 Holiday Releases. I picked up the shades Copperazi and Topaz Flash (shown/used here) during one of the recent Sephora weekend sales.
Now do the rest of your face. With this eyeshadow, it’s important to apply the shadow first because, as with most glitters, there WILL be fallout. I even wait to do my skincare (unless I put on under-eye masks) because I’ll just have to wipe it off anyway.
Step 3: Using a pencil brush, smudge the same bronzer or contour along your entire lower lashline.
Step 4: Smudge a gel or pencil liner onto your top lash line. I like to pull mine out to a not-so-sharp wing.
This is another 2018 Holiday item- The Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in the shade Goddess (a gorgeous navy with glitter) from the 5-pack of minis that I got in my Holiday Haul.
Step 5: Using your pencil brush and the highlighter you used on your face (not a glittery highlighter- I don’t suggest those around the eyes), highlight the inner corner of your eye.
Yep, guessed it! Another holiday item- the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Highlighter in the shade Rose Quartz. I also picked this one up in the Holiday Haul, and just did a review on the entire set.
After that, add a lippie and your look is complete! With the multicolored glitter, your eyes will be lighting up the room from every angle.
(In case you’re wondering, I choose the Becca Glow Gloss in the shade Chocolate Geode for a monochromatic look.)
So what do you guys think? Would you be willing to rock a quick look like this for Thanksgiving? Do you have any quick makeup tips for the holidays?
