Your New Favorite Holiday Look + $100 Giveaway!

With the holidays right around the corner, we bring to you a new festive makeup tutorial!

Mary Kay® Festive Look It’s just about that year again! Time to get out your cocktail dresses, metallic blazers and holiday spirit because the season is upon us. With Thanksgiving literally just around the corner, and Christmas and New Years not too far behind, its time to start planning those festive, and holiday looks.

Fall is the perfect time to try out new products. And right now I am obsessed with really warm colors that accent the turning of the leaves. It’s fun to embrace the colors of the season in more ways than one; first, throughout your wardrobe, and second experiment with some new makeup looks. Here is one of my newest looks to try this season. Perfect for a fall evening out or try at your first friends-giving dinner. These Mary Kay® Mineral Eye Colors are amazing for blending. In this look you will see that I highlight the corners of my eyes with Mary Kay® Amber Blaze Mineral Eye Color. Because this is a shimmer shadow, it really brightens up your whole look. Also, I loved finishing this “Festive Flirt Look” with smudging the coal mineral eye color to create more of a bronze smoky eye. It’s a dramatic but classic touch to your eye makeup that really puts a finishing touch on the whole appearance.

  1. I would wear this look with my red and black plaid that I bought especially for my work's Christmas party. Will go perfect with it! Thank you for the chance! 🙂 lovelymintpearls at

  2. I don't actually wear makeup, so this is not a look I would wear. BUT it is a look my mom would wear and I would def help her pick out some great accessories in gold and brown to go with it! I hope my entry can count!

  3. It's hard to find eyeshadow that doesn't have shimmer these days. I'm 54. Come on – shimmer??? I search out the matte colors so I can contour my eyes without looking like I'm trying to look 16! I'm all for a teeny tiny highlight with shimmer but any more than that and I look hideous. Also lots of shimmer just doesn't seem professional for the workplace.

    This is a beautiful eyeshadow with staying power (I still need to use a primer) but it's velvety and goes on smooth
