Attention Beauty Lovers! A few amazing bloggers (Valerie, Julissa, Devyn, Yazzi, Caniputitonmyface) and I got together. We decide to do a Holiday Collaboration and a special giveaway for all of you. I will be doing a #HolidayHaute (our hashtag for the giveaway) Look using many of the products I received in my December Birchbox. Stay tuned to find out how to get this look and enter the giveaway. This giveaway is huge and the winner will get presents from each of us bloggers. Well onto to look!

#HolidayHaute Look:


I am such a subscription box addict (as I am sure you all know). If you are new to my blog (welcome), you will definitely come to find that I am a hoarder of subscription boxes. I figured for my part of the giveaway, I would do a look for the holidays inspired by Birchbox products. I will also be giving away a 3-month subscription to Birchbox (one of my favorite subscription boxes). Don’t know what Birchbox is, click here to see my reviews! You will win this along with all the other amazing prizes from 5 other bloggers. How awesome is that?! Here are my top steps to creating the perfect #HolidayHaute look!

Step 1: Create Those Festive Eyes


For this eye look, I used the Coastal Scents Glamour Eyes Eye Shadow Sampler from Birchbox. These colors scream holiday to me. I love the emerald green and gold combinations. I used the emerald green shade all over my lids and then the gold shade just in the center. This makes the gold stand out and your eyes pop. These shadows are crazy pigmented and blend beautifully. Finish the eyes with winged eyeliner (used the emerald green shade to create a double wing) and mascara.

Step 2: Accentuate Those Cheeks


A perfect holiday look, will have those perfect glowing rosy cheeks. Start by adding a nice peachy pink cheek stain to the apples of the cheeks and blend to the hairline. I used Jane Iredale’s Just Kissed Lip & Cheek Stain in Forever Peach (Birchbox sample). This cheek stain is stunning. I was not impressed with it on my lips, but on the cheeks it is perfection. It blends so well and really makes the cheeks pop. Also, apply your favorite bronzer (along hairline) and highlight (on cheekbones) to complete the cheeks.

Step 3: Red Lips


What screams holiday more than red lips? NOTHING! Apply your favorite matte red lipstick. I used LOC’s Wildest Dreams Vibrant Matte Lipstick (Birchbox’s own line). This lip color is stunning and is the perfect holiday red.

Step 4: Get Dressed and Add Some Holiday Sparkle


Finish your look by wearing your favorite holiday outfit. Also, don’t forget the hair. I added a fun sparkly headband to really make my messy bun pop.

Step 5: Deep Clean After All The Holiday Parties


All that holiday makeup and holiday festivities can take a toll on your skin. After you are back from your parties, make sure you take off all that makeup. Use a deep scrub to really get into those pores. I used Derma E Microdermabrasion Scrub (Birchbox sample). This scrub contains Dead Sea Salt and really deep cleans the skin. It also smells amazing.

This completes your #holidayhaute look! I hope you enjoyed this look and learned some holiday look tips. Now on to how to win your own set of Birchbox products plus much more!
