Matte Red Lips for a Classic Christmas

This is my 'Classic Christmas' look for 2014. It looks good on everyone and is very simple and easy to create. The biggest difference from last year's Christmas look is the matte lips and more defined crease. Take a look at both and see which style you prefer!

1. Prime the lids to prevent creasing and ensure long-lasting color application, I used my Mac paintpot in 'Painterly'.
2. Apply an off-white shadow over the entire lid all the way up to the browbone and on the inner third of the lower lashline.
3. Blend a light & medium brown shadow into the crease for definition.
4. Press a gold shadow onto the lid being careful not to mix it with the crease colors.
5. With a thin brush, darken the crease with a deep brown, creating a softer version of a cut crease.
6. Press a white, reflective glitter onto the center on the lid, I used Stila Magnificent Metals in 'Pixie Dust'. This was limited edition at Sephora, but you can still find it at Ulta.
7. Create a simple wing along your top lashline with black liquid liner and add mascara, I used my Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in 'Trooper'.
8. Line the outer edge of the waterline and lower lashline with a black pencil and blend it out with brown eyeshadow.
9. Finish the look by filling in the brows, I used my Anastasia Brow Powder in 'Medium Brown'.
