Face of the Day: Winter Classic

Hey, all!

I ended up pretty happy this morning with the way my makeup turned out, so I thought I'd share.  I did a very simple, wearable look that will enhance your features without making you look too made-up.  The shades I used are really nice for winter;  The sparkly shadow will give your eyes an icy, snowy look, and the deep pinkish-red lip gloss will make your lips really stand out. Sorry that the photo quality isn't the best, but you should be able to get the general idea!


  • Shadow:  Urban Decay's Naked Palette.  Sidecar all over the lid, Smog on the outer corners, Naked on the brow bone, and Virgin under the brows and on inner corners.
  • Brows:  ELF's Eyebrow Lifter and Filler in Medium
  • Mascara:  Covergirl LashBlast Fusion
  • Eyeliner:  Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner on both upper lash line and waterline.
  • NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine in 580 Rivington Rose (I LOVE this stuff!  It's my new go-to lip gloss.)
  • Tarte Cheek Stain in Flawless on the apples of the cheeks
  • Showered at night, threw my hair up in a tight bun, went to bed, and woke up with some nice waves.  :)
That's all there is to it!  Let me know if you guys try this makeup combination.  I'd love to see how it works on some different complexions!


  1. Your hair looks so lovely! And I love the tarte stain! I've never tried it and now I think I must.

    1. Thank you for the compliment! :) I love the Tarte stain too. It's such a nice, rosy color, and it actually smells wonderful and feels good on the skin. Tarte makes some great products!

  2. Gorgeous! I also bought the NYC lip shine in Rivington Rose, because you raved about it. haha

    1. Thank you! :) How are you liking the NYC Liquid Lipshine? I'm obsessed. As soon as I find a store near me that sells it, I'm totally getting all of the other shades. XD I had my mom mail me some from back home... It's just the best. I think I even like it better than my Urban Decay Lip Junkie. It definitely lasts longer, and the color is just as nice. :)

    2. I really like them! I got my first one in the Holiday VoxBox, and I was just so happy with the texture. It is the perfect texture for a lip gloss. I hate the sticky ones!
