Did someone say holiday makeup?! The holidays call for a jazzier-than-usual makeup look, so I put together a combo that I don’t typically pair: Dramatic eyes and dramatic lips! I’ve always shied away from doing both just because I feel like one ends up fighting the other and just looks too done up… But in this case, I was so happy with how the makeup look turned out!

Since it was going to be an extra dramatic look, I decided to keep the lips classic with a matte red lipstick. The eyes feature a pretty neutral palette, but the star of the eye makeup is, of course, that bold winged eyeliner. Check out this quick teaser and, if you like what you see, watch the full tutorial on my YouTube channel:

        Hi. I love your videos. Thank you for all you post. You don’t know how much you have helped me. My question is how do I know if I am a cool tone or warm?

        • I know sometimes people say look at your veins, if they’re green you’re warm toned, if they’re blue you’re cool toned. I don’t find that to be an accurate measure. I can look at my skin and immediately see that it has a green undertone to it, and judging from my ethnicity (Europe/Asia/Middle East) it’s pretty clear I’m warm toned. If you’re from northern Europe, for example, chances are you’re probably cool toned. Or if you’re latin, Middle Eastern, or Asian, chances are you’re warm toned. Some people’s skin actually looks pink (these are the people who tend to burn very easily in the sun) and those people are cool toned. So that’s sort of a run down of how you can narrow down what side your complexion is on! Hope this helps 🙂

  • You look gorgeous! So gorgeous it hurts, lol 🙂 Love the way you did your eyeliner, flawless. I think this look would look great with nude lips as well.

    First of all, you are very pretty! I love how you kept the lips classic. Some women tend to overdo everything when going for the dramatic look, but not you. Your look is awesome!

    Really great tutorial, but I can safely say there’s no way I’d look that good at the end if I followed it 😉
