Is there anything better than Thanksgiving dinner? Gathered around the table with your loved ones ready to indulge in a literal feast! Don't forget to look your best! Today we've put together this warm and festive look which features the colours of the season and a little hint of sparkle!
To start lets add a little glow to the skin, taking some Jelly Pong Pong All Over Glow we are applying it to the face with our fingertips.
Then to begin that flawless base we are using our famous Bella&Bear Jaguar angled kabuki to buff and blend some Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation over the skin. We are using downward and outward motions for a streak-free, seam-free finish.
To compliment that foundation, lets add a little concealer, this will not only work to disguise any blemishes but will also bring light to the face for a healthy, wide-awake look! We used some Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer and our Bella&Bear Ocelot concelaer brush to blend it in smoothly.
Now, we want to keep that lovely glow to the skin so we are going to apply our setting powder only to the concealed areas of the face, however if you prefer a matte finish or have particularly oily skin then go ahead and dust the whole face with your powder. We used our Bella&Bear Leopard brush here with some ELF HD powder.
You can then spritz the face with your setting spray to lock that base in place! We love the Makeup Revolution Oil Control mist.
Now, lets add some colour back to the face for a healthy glow. Taking our Bella&Bear Bobcat brush and a matte bronzer - we love Hoola by Benefit - we are working it into the hollows of the cheeks and the temples.
Lets make that skin sparkle and shine with some highlight. We took the So Susan Statement Skin highlight stick and applied it onto our cheekbones, the tip of our nose and the cupids bow. We then blended it onto the skin with our Bella&Bear Margay cat brush.
Its time to frame the eyes. Using our Bella&Bear Iberian Lynx brow brush and some Freedom Makeup Brow Pomeade we are filling in and shaping the brows. You can then use the spoolie end to brush through the brows to disperse of any excess product to make a softer, more natural finish.
Let's work on those dazzling eyes. To start we are using our ring finger to apply some shadow primer to the lids, right up to the brow bone. We are using some Makeup Revolution Focus & Fix Eye primer here.
Then, using our Bella&Bear Jaguarundy brush and a matte transition shadow, we are working it into the crease with a windscreen wiper motion. We are using the Lick&Lash beauty 35 colour warm palette for this look.
Now, taking a rusty brown shadow with a matte finish, and our Bella&Bear Bornean Bay Cat brush we are going to apply it to the outer and the inner corners of the eyes, leaving the centre blank.
To give a good base for our glitter shadow we are going to press a cream gel or cream shadow into the centre of the lid now, where you left that blank space.
And then, we are going in with our glitter. Taking a warm gold shadow and our Bella&Bear Marbled brush, we are pressing the shadow into the centre of the lid and gently blending it into those outer corners.
To intensify that sparkle we are going in with our Bella&Bear Fishing Cat brush and we are working some more of that gold shadow along the lower lash line.
Now, lets really define those eyes! Using our Bella&Bear Serval Angled liner brush and a black liner (we love the Essence cushion liner) we are creating a nice wing along the upper lash line - you can make this as simple or dramatic as you prefer!
We then used our Bella&Bear Eye&Mighty lash curlers to curl the lashes for some serious lift. We curled for 20 seconds on each eye.
To follow we applied a coat of our fave mascara - and then went in with a set of elegant falsies to make things extra glam. We used our Bella&Bear Angled tweezers to place some Ardell Demi Wispies lashes as close to the natural lash line as possible.
And, of course no festive look would be complete without a rich red lip! We used our famous Bella&Bear Rusty Spotted Cat Lip Brush to evenly and cleanly apply some Limecrime Velvetine in 'Bloodmoon' to the lips.
To finish everything off we went over with another spritz of our setting spray to lock everything in place!
As this is quite a fierce look we are keeping our hair sleek and simple. Using our Bella&Bear The Bear Paddle Brush we brushed through the hair to remove any pesky knots and tangles and we then pulled the hair back into a tight ponytail, securing in place. We also teased out small sections of hair at the front to soften the look!
