Ever since watching Jaclyn Hill’s latest video, Extra AF Holiday Glam Look, I’ve wanted to try this look for myself so yesterday, I took the plunge and filmed a YouTube video where I tried to recreate the look in one take.
This post is a bit of a step-by-step for my video on YouTube and my last official Blogmas post! I’m sad that Blogmas has come to an end but it has been so much hard work and much harder than I first expected- 25 posts in 25 days is no easy feat, let me tell you!
But I hope you like this post! It’s not my own look but I am very happy with how my interpretation turned out. I didn’t have all the same products that Jaclyn used but I did have the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill palette which did the majority of the eye look.
MAC Fix+ Prep & Prime
RCMA Translucent Powder
MaxFactor Creme Bronzer
MaxFactor Creme Puff Blush in Nude Mauve
Makeup Revolution Ultra Cool Glow Palette
NYX Brow Mascara
ELF Brow Pomade
Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Brushes Palette
Freedom Makeup Pro Camouflage Paste in CF01
Makeup Revolution Amazing Lipstick in Red
NYX Liquid Suede Lipstick in Kitten Heels
Rimmel Scandal Eyes Mascara
First I prepped my face with MAC Fix + and then applied my Sleek Foundation and powder products as I usually would in my every day face routine.
I filled in my brows and then started on my eye makeup.
First thing I did was take my Makeup Revolution lipstick and put this on my lids as a base to ensure the red popped. It acted as a cream shadow and was fairly easy to blend out because it wasn’t a liquid lipstick. Although it was slightly more pink than I wanted, in the end it worked out alright.
I then took the shade Creamsicle and blended it around the edges of the red as a transition shade so the line wasn’t so harsh. I took the shade Jacz and placed that over the red on the outer half of my eye and blended as I went. The key to this look is blending so everything looks seamless.
Using a synthetic hair brush, I applied the Freedom Pro Camouflage Paste to the inner half of my lid and created a half cut crease sort of thing.
Then, using the shade Queen, I applied that on top of the concealer but spritzed it with a bit of Fix+ to make sure it applies easier to my eyelid. I usually have an issue with metallic shades but for some reason, it worked out OK this time.
Using a small pencil brush I took some more of Jacz and made the transition from red to gold more seamless.
Using the shade Enchanted on an angled liner brush, I lined my lower waterline with this forest green shade and then blended it out with the shade Diva which is a green-silver shade.
I finished my look with mascara and red lipstick and a touch of highlighter.
This is definitely a more bold look than I’m used to but I’m actually really loving the look. I can definitely see me transferring this look into other combinations of colours and styles to chop it up a bit.
Do you like this look? Will you be trying something similar for Christmas? Let me know!
