12 Days of Christmas – Day 5 – “Plum Pie”

Happy Friday beautiful people!

Today’s look is another one of our classic smokey eyes to give you some more colour inspiration for the holidays. This one involves a little of my most adored colour, that is purple. This subtle yet not subtle look strays you away from the typical darker lipsticks to put more emphasis on those eyes.

On went ELF HD Lifting Concealer in the shade “Fair”, and Revlon’s Photoready Foundation in “005” corrected with a combination of  brown, yellow and green using Make Up For Ever’s 12 Colour Flash Palette being Revlon’s Photoready Foundation in “005”. She set the foundation once again with ELF’s HD Setting Powder and moved on to ze eyes.

She started off with MAC’s Eyeshadow in “Vanilla” starting in the inner corner and throughout the eyelid as a base. Jen went on to use MAC’s Eyeshadows in “Sketch” in a V Formation and smoked it up to make it look sharp. “Plum Dressing” on the inner and worked its way out,  and “Soft Brown” in the crease and to provide an easier transition to our colours and give it that pie crust look. “Indian Ink” to give it more dimension and darken it up and added the tiniest bit of black bit of black using MAC’s “Carbon”. And applied some finishing touches with some pink in MAC Free to Be, right at the very top to blend the smoke a little better.

Jen used a waterproof eyeliner on both my top and bottom waterline and filled in the brows with some pencil. We applied some falsies with ELF Natural Lash Kit.


She threw on some baby pink MAC Blush in the shade Raizons,  and Clinique’s Long Last Gloss Wear in #10 Air Kiss.

And taa daa!


We hope we sparked some makeup or baking inspiration 😉
