Let's face it, holiday party season may have come to an end but shimmery eyes and bold lips are a party look must year round. Today I'm sharing a makeup look created using the Pixi Palette Rosette, an all-in-one kit that contains rose and taupe-hued shades for eyes, brows, blush, bronzer and more. I love that there are so many versatile look options with this palette- I can create a soft no-makeup look using the lightest shades, or a deep smoky cranberry eye using the darker shades. For my party look, I went in-between using golds and copper to create a fun and flawless winter party makeup look with a bold berry lip.
Ready to get the look? Here's how:
Starting with a clean and moisturized face, I applied foundation to my entire face, blending in with a Beautyblender. Next, I added concealer to my under eye area, chin, around my nose and covering any blemishes or areas that needed extra coverage. I blended the concealer in, then set using a translucent powder.
After applying primer to my lids, I applied the medium brown/taupe shade in the eye contours trio in the Palette Rosette to my crease, blending up above the crease, using a shadow blending brush. Next, using a smaller shadow contouring brush, I applied the darker brown in the trip blending into my crease to create definition.
Next, using a wet synthetic brush (I typically use a small synthetic concealer brush) I applied the Pixi Fairy Dust Favorites Metallic Warmth in the second copper shade to my lids. This color is so pretty and the metallic really makes eyes pop, especially when applied wet like I did. I then grabbed the lightest top shade and applied a dab to the center of my lid, to the inner corners of my eyes to add dimension. Lastly, I applied the soft gold shade in the highlight trio to my brow bone to highlight.
To finish the eyes, I curled my lashes, created a subtle cat eye using Physicians Formula Eye Booster Brush Tip Eyeliner (this liquid-type liner is the BEST!), lined my upper waterline using Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in BlackNoir and coated my lashes with the Pixi Lengthy Fiber Mascara, which includes fibers in the mascara formula to add length and volume to lashes.
I like that the palette also includes powder for brows- a light brown/brunette shade, a deeper brown and a black shade- to help fill in and shape brows. The brown shade is perfect for my brows (I like to shade them slightly darker than my natural brow color) and the other two shades work well as matte eye shadows!
I used an angled contour brush to apply the bronzer to the hollows of cheekbones, temples and jawline. For this look, I didn't want too much of a contour, just some slight definition and an all over warm glow, which this shade is perfect for. I then dabbed the blush shade to the apples of my cheeks, stroking back towards my ear and blending with the bronzer to give a soft wash of color. I then used the all-over glow as a highlight- applying to the middle of my cheeks above the blush and swiping back towards my hairline and up around to my temples.
While the shade is pretty, I would opt to use other products as highlighters as I don't find this one to be milled or soft enough as a highlight and didn't experience that 'Oh my glow!' type of moment. However, this powder does look gorgeous as a blush topper or if you want a more subtle, not-so-in-your-face highlight. If you've read my beauty posts before, you know I am PICKY with my highlighters.
To finish the look, I added a bold, pretty pink-red lip using Winky Lux Matte Lip Velour in the shade Bunny. I first made sure to line my lips with a similar shade, ever so slightly over-drawing to make my thin lips appear bigger, and then filled in with the lip color. I normally stick with softer pinks and nudes but for a party look, you gotta make those lips pop and I am obsessed with the copper eye/berry lip combination!
