I'm excited to start the Makeup Mixup again. Although the Thanksgiving break was nice, I missed having my weekly prompt to guide my makeup creativity! This week is Christmas Movie
week, shout out to Miranda
for doing next week's Oh, Christmas Tree!
instead! ;) Make sure you check out their looks, both are beautiful and perfect for the holiday season!
For my christmas movie makeup inspiration I chose Mary Hatch Bailey, wife to George Bailey in the movie It's a Wonderful Life
. If you have never seen this film, you must make it a priority! The story follows George Bailey, who wishes to have never been born. He finds out what life is like if he never existed. This film really reminds you how special of a gift your life is!
Getting back to the makeup, I wanted to use Donna Reed's character Mary Hatch
as inspiration. She has this beautiful old-timey cinema glow, sparkling eyes, the works! I wanted my makeup to reflect all the pieces of old-holiday glamour, without it being a sucker punch smokey eye. I began the look by evening out my skin tone using Glossier's Perfecting Skin Tint in Light
. I lightly contoured with Lazarus, a powder shade from my new Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye
palette. I then brushed Ludwin, another shade from the Kat Von D palette, over my cheeks as a blush. Still using the Shade & Light Eye palette, I dusted Samael across my eyelid, and brightened the inner corner with Lucius. I lined my eyes with Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in the shade Crave
