We are officially so close to the end of the year.
How did this happen?
We are only a few days away from Thanksgiving, which means we get to celebrate togetherness with our loved ones.
Also, this holiday calls for a good makeup look to create to sit at the sala (the living room) 😂
I grew up in Mexico, so honestly, we don’t celebrate the day so much as people that are born in the US.
Of course, I have to establish some of the US cultures into my daughter’s life and celebrate Thanksgiving, so we celebrate small.
I must also confess I don’t like Turkey!
I’ve mentioned it before, when it comes to parties, get together’s or things of that nature, I tend to focus on getting my daughter ready mostly, I like it when she looks well put together even if it means less time for me. Luckily she’s now at an age where she does a lot of things alone; the only thing I really and mainly have to worry about is her hair.
When it comes to my makeup looks, I like to play it safe; you know my usual neutrals and pop of color on the lips.
Lately, I have been able to experiment more with heavier colors recently but not at its full force. When I was looking for some inspiration for a look to create, most of the tutorials I was watching
had a lot of orangey colors in them, and that was not the vibe I was hoping to accomplish.
Finally, I came across some autumn leaves, and this is where my inspiration flourished.
So here’s the look I decided to put together for any thanksgiving get together for this year, not to mention is super easy to recreate.
For this look, I used my Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette.
I honestly love this palette; the color scheme is different but very workable. I’ve seen quite a few bad reviews about the fall out of the shadow, and yes, there is more fall out than usual, but gosh, it’s not that bad. I feel like people are just complaining about minimal things.
I mainly used the shade named Edge shade from the palette, which is a bright, medium-dark yellow with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had a smooth, velvety consistency that made me fall in love with!
I added a little bit of Fudge shade on the inner corner of the crease, very lightly, also the shade Electric on the inner corner of the eye.
