Tips & Tricks For The Perfect Thanksgiving Glam
Not only will the kind of primer you use help in keeping your makeup long lasting, but also the type of setting spray you use as well. We recommend using a mattifying setting spray to set your makeup, a really good one we like is the Shine Control Matte Finish Long Lasting Makeup Mist. This long lasting formula guarantees a matte finish and helps keep oils at bay. Because of the type of packaging, this sprays as a fine mist which allows for even application every time.
PRO TIP: Spray a bit of setting spray on your beauty sponge when blending out your foundation/concealer for long lasting results.
But let’s talk about the good stuff, the GLAM part of any holiday look. There are many looks you could pull off to show up to the family function looking like a supermodel. These are some of our favorites:
The great thing about fall is that this is the season when all the darker colors are in style and you can show up in a smokey eye to smize your way through all the family portraits. We recommend using a palette that has all the necessary colors for a smokey eye, our favorite is the Au Natural 30 Shades - Vegan Eyeshadow Palette. Here is a short step-by-step on how to achieve this look:
Step 1: Prime your eyelids. Using your Prelude Eyeshadow Primer apply all over the eyelid. This will help eyeshadow stick and last long throughout the night.
Step 2: Apply shade “Teddy Bear” all along the crease blending upwards slightly above your natural crease.
Step 3: Slightly deepen the crease using chase “Smore” but keep this shade only on your crease do not blend upwards.Step 4: Pack on “Black Hole” all over the lid but do not pack into the crease. With a small crease brush blend the black into the two previous shades.
Cut creases are a great choice if you want to be glamorous and show off your makeup skills. They are a great way to get creative with fun colors and even some fun graphic liner. The possibilities are endless when creating cut crease looks, there are double creases, half creases, and halo eyes. Really, it’s all about finding which style you like and fits your eye shape the best. We recommend using any of your favorite Rude Cosmetics eyeshadow palettes for this one. Here is a quick little step by step on the basics of how to create a simple cut crease:
Step 1: Prime the eyes. Using your Prelude Eyeshadow Primer apply all over the eyelid.
Step 2: Apply a transition color to your crease. Any light color will do, so long as it helps blend out your darker colors later on. You can blend it all over your crease and blend upwards above the crease.
Step 3: Take your darker color and apply on the crease slightly below the lighter color and blend upwards.
Step 4: Once you are happy with the blend, it is time to cut the crease. Use a concealer, primer or foundation to do this. The idea is to crease a defined crease.This is obviously the basics, but cut creases are a fun way to get super creative and put your makeup skills to the test.
