A FACE FOR WINTER

posted by Elshane on Dec 2 2014, under Beauty

Don't let that winter chill kill your makeup vibe. Follow along for a few easy ways to sit pretty in the snow. {OK, maybe I live in LA and it's still 70 degrees and sunny outside, but these photos were taken in NYC in 30 degree hailing rain.}

For my eyes, I used Urban Decay's Naked On The Run palette which I mentioned last week in this how-to post. I start with eyeshadow primer so that the shadow can blend and stay on my lids all day long. I used a heavy application of Dive on my lid, followed by a few strokes of Resist across my crease and also on the outside of my lid, blending it in with quality brushes. I then swept a faint line of Stag eye liner across my top and bottom lid and blended with a short, stubby blending brush so the hard line disappeared.

I graced my lashes with Perversion mascara. All of these items are found in the Urban Decay Naked On The Run palette, and NO this isn't a sponsored post! It's just a really great palette.

For lips, I went super dark but not quite vampy, with this true oxblood color (which so happens to be the fashion "it" color of the season).

I used Nars lip liner in Lanikai which is a slightly darker shade than my lip crayon. I lined my lips with an extra pointy pout, to give the illusion of juicier lips {hey now!}! I filled in my lips with Nars Damned which is from the Nars Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil collection, of which I own every. single. color. It's the only product I'll put on my lips because it's so low maintenance. 

Elshane's World doesn't do high maintenance beauty. We're too busy.

My tinted moisturizer and liquid foundation is equal parts Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Liquid Foundation (shade 4 around the nose and under eyes, and shade 6 around the rest of my face) mixed with The Balm's Balm Shelter shade medium tinted moisturizer (SPF 18).
