12 Days of Blogmas: Day 9

Welcome to Blogmas Day Nine! We only have three more days left of Blogmas, so today I'm bringing you all a holiday appropriate makeup look. I don't normally wear a ton of colors on my eyes, but when I saw the sparkly navy blue in my Stila In the Light palette, I knew I had to do something with it! It's so beautiful, and is such a pretty blue; almost reminding me of the snow that is currently falling outside of my window.

(my name is Hannah & I'm great at awkward hand posing!)

As a base, I used MAC's 'Painterly' paint pot on my lids, and set that with the Wet N Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow in Brûlée (powder-on-powder is much easier to work with, while cream-on-powder is a bit tougher).

I then worked 'Bliss' into my crease to warm it up a bit, and to give a little definition to my lids. I then took 'Night Sky' (the beautiful blue) into the outer V's of my lids, and a bit on the lash line. I then took Stila's waterproof smudge stick in Bluefin, put a couple swipes of the color in the corner, and worked it into the color as well. (If you prefer a bolder look, wet your eyeshadow brush you're using beforehand! I'm not used to bright colors on my eyes, so I took this a bit more carefully than I would have a nude shadow). 

I blended out 'Night Sky' into 'Bliss' for a good bit of time, and when I was happy with the blended result, touched up my crease color once again. I then took MAC's 'Crystal Avalanche' as my inner corner highlight, and the Jumbo Eye Pencil from NYX in 'Milk" on my lower lashline. Looking back on this look, I wish I would've done a nude color in my lower lashline, but I embraced the bright, icy white. I then topped the eyes off with Benefit's Roller Lash mascara.

Stila In the Light Palette
*NOTE* I did not realize this until typing up this post, that this palette is no longer being made or sold on Stila's website! I found it here on ASOS, but it is extremely hard to find nowadays. Sorry about that, guys! 

I actually enjoyed wearing this eye look; I paired it with a slightly bronzed face (I'm pretty pale otherwise) and a nude lip (I used NYX Butter Lipstick in 'Pops'). I even got a compliment from my fellow blogger, Miss Hannah aka Broke & Fabulous! I hope you guys enjoyed this look, and if you have any other looks you want me to try, don't hesitate to ask!
