Soft Holiday Glam

Hey beauties! The holiday’s are here and it’s time to get glammed up! This look I created is very soft but has a dramatic touch. I love neutral colors because they’re wearable for anyone. I added a little drama using lashes but as always, lashes are optional! Below, I discuss how I created the look. If you try out this look, please tag me on instagram, #andreaaagp. Hope you all enjoy!!

I always start with a clean and moisturized face. After that dries, I apply primer to help my foundation blend seamlessly and to ensure it stays all day. I love Benefit Cosmetics’ POREfessional Face Primer.

Next, I fill in my brows with Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Soft Brown Brow Wiz and Chocolate DipBrow, then set them with clear brow gel.


I prime my eyes with Benefit Cosmetics’ Stay Don’t Stray eyeshadow primer and set the base with Unique Pro Makeup Peaches & Cream eyeshadow. I always start with a transition shade so the shadows blend easier. I buffed Chinchilla all over the crease. I darkened the outer corner of my eyes with Toffee and concentrated Makeup Geek’s Corrupt eyeshadow in the corners to create a soft wing. For some shimmer, I applied Peach Schnapps on the lid and inner corners of my eyes. For mascara, I applied Benefit Cosmetics’ Roller Lash to my top lashes and popped on Royal Eye Candy lashes in the style Nefratiti.


Next, I apply Maybelline’s Fit Me! Matte foundation and applied Nar’s Radiant Creamy Concealer under my eyes. I set the concealer with Ben Nye’s Cameo powder and set my face with Benefit Cosmetics’ POREfessional: Agent Zero Shine powder.

I continue with the eyes using Unique Pro Makeup Spanish Moss eyeshadow under my lower lash line and blended that out with Chinchilla. Lastly for my eyes, I apply Chanel’s Le Volume mascara to my lower lashes.


For the rest of my face, I contoured the hollows of my cheekbones with Benefit Cosmetics’ Hoola Bronzer and bronzed the perimeter of my face with NYX Cosmetics’ Matte Bronzer. To highlight, I swept NYX Cosmetics’ Narcissistic illuminator on my cheekbones, nose, cupid’s bow, and chin.

For lips, I lined with NYX Cosmetics’ Nude Suede Shoes lip pencil. I applied Chocolate Crepe Intense Butter gloss to my lips and popped a bit of Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Butterscotch gloss in the center.

For a finishing touch, I spritz my face with Benefit Cosmetics’ Ultra Radiance facial re-hydrating mist.
