Happy Thanksgiving!! No fried turkey this year – only four of us for dinner so I have something smaller in mind. Thanksgiving is all about family and I wanted to wish my TMG family the most special of holidays. So just a quick note to say Happy Thanksgiving! I also wanted to take the time to thank each and every one of you that visit The Makeup Girl daily and how much I love interacting with you here and on my other social channels. I am very thankful for the success of the site and I owe all of that to the readers that come here everyday and talk about it to their friends, co-workers, and family.
I am not doing a whole bunch of “black friday” gift guides this year because I think everything has started to get TOO commercial. There are even some malls/stores that are actually OPEN today….no thank you. This day is about being THANKFUL for what you have and spending time with your family, not about shopping. So in that spirit – I will post one or two deals that I think are worthy of a little day after Thanksgiving shopping (everybody likes to save money, right??) and a few Cyber Monday deals…but that’s it.
In the meantime, here is a little makeup look for you to try for dinner today (because everyone needs to come to the table dressed for dinner). I did this look a while back but it is one that is always pretty timeless
I always start with a cream shadow base – because it is long lasting and crease resistant (creasing is the enemy of this whole look). You want the eye to look clean and polished – very french girl. Then I apply the liner all the way across at the base of my lashes and build it up so that it appears thicker. This look is almost entirely Bobbi Brown….and the pic was taken WAY back before i got my brows done! Look how thin they are LOLOL.
Bobbi Brown Longwear Cream Shadow in Beach Bronze I love love love love this shadow. Perfect if you have no time to do touch-ups and you just want to have a nice clean look.
Bobbi Brown Longwear Gel Eyeliner in Chocolate shimmer ink. You do need to use an eyeliner brush for this and it takes a steady hand but once you get the hang of it the look is great. I am wearing a golden brown shade here so the look is much softer than your average black liner look.
Bobbi Brown Extreme Party Mascara for buildable volume and seperation – this mascara is FABULOUS.
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Rose I love the GLOW it gives!
NARS Lip Gloss in Orgasm. LOVE this shade….it looks super light in the tube but this shade really is flattering on just about everyone.
So there you have it, a quick EASY holiday look in just a few steps! Big hugs to all of you! Take the time out to hug your family….I’m hugging mine today
