1. Cranberry Cocktail
When we think of the Holidays at the Dollhouse, we think of velvet emerald green and golden bells and of course, delicious cranberry cocktails and side dishes. Cranberry is such a beautiful, festive shade and is gorgeous on just about everyone despite your eye, skin or hair color.
Begin this look by creating a flawless face look. Chisel your cheekbones with a nice contour shade and highlight your underlies with a full coverage banana shade powder. Illuminate your skin with Dollup's lumie highlighter in shade lavish for a glowing pop.
On the eyes, take a big fluffy brush and a deep, cranberry, burgundy shade and blend the color back and forth into the crease in windshield wiper motions until the shade is blended and smoked out. Then take a beautiful neutral shade such as a golden or bronzey shade and apply all over the lid. Ten take a deep plum shade in the same cranberry family and deepen up the crease and outer 1/3 of the eye by blending back and forth in the crease, that darker shade.
Pop off the look by applying a gorgeous deep cranberry lipstick. Dollup's creme de matte liquid lipstick go on creamy and smooth and last all day. We recommend Dollup's liquid lip in shade JOY.
2. Silver and Gold
Nothing can ever compare to the elegance and timeless look of gorgeous and classic silver and gold. In one look, you can now pull together all of the beauty of the holidays in one.
Begin by taking a frosty, golden shadow such as Dollup Beauty's idoleyes shadow in Frisky. Place this shade all over the lid.
Then take Dollup's glitter eyeshadows in shade silver and gold. Take a flat edged shadow brush and press the golden pigment into the center of the lid. Then take the silver glitter pigment and sweep that into the inner 1/3 of the eye.
Once finished take an angled shadow brush and dip it back and forth into a deep espresso brown shade as well as a black charcoal shadow shade. Dip back and forth a couple of times and then apply the darker shadow in windshield wiper motions onto the outer 1/3 of the eye at an angle and into the crease. Top off the look with a dramatic winged eyeliner and a pair of false eyelashes to finish this elegant glam look!
3. Holiday Smokey Eye
This Holiday season, it's time to spice it up- Doll! Let's switch up your normal go-to look and create a gorgeous dramatic smokey eye this year. This look is perfect for any holiday party or special event that you have in store. Either way- you'll be sure to want to snap a selfie of this gorgeous look!
Begin by placing a bold shadow like a shimmery gold, silver or deep bold color all over your lid. Whether you opt for a glistening gold or a deep burnt brown or black shade, be sure to pack this color all over your lid by taking your flat shadow brush and pressing the pigment into you lid. Then grab a subtle smokey shade such as a burnt red or brown to pair with your warm lid shade or a taupe or grey to pair with a cool, silvery lid. Take that shade with a big fluffy brush and blend it back and forth into your crease until the crease is very blown out and smokey. Take that same crease shade on a smaller precision brush and apply to your lower lash line in back and forth motions until the lower lash line is also smoked out and defused. For an extra pop of glam- apply a dramatic winged eyeliner and some false lashes to give the total red carpet look.
Your look will not be finished until you've created a flawless face look with a full coverage liquid foundation and topped it off with a chiseled contour and highlight using the Dollup Beauty bronzed babe collection.
Now you're ready to finish off the look with a subtle nude lip. We recommend using Dollup's Creme De Matte liquid lipstick in shade Peace or Goodness.
4. Merry and Bright-
Have you ever heard the old saying- Pick one feature to highlight either eyes or lips? This look is allowing the traditional technique of makeup to shine on the lips while your skin and eyes shine radiant and bright.
To begin this look, grab a brightening concealer. Apply Dollup's color block concealer under your eyes to cancel out any redness or dark circles. Also apply this concealer to any areas on the skin that need extra brightening or concealing.
Next, grab a nice matte nude shade and apply all over your lid. Then blend a matte warm brown shade into your crease to help deepen up the eye look for a matte, neutral look. Top off with some mascara for a fresh, natural eye.
Apply a light dose of bronzer and blush to your cheeks for some dimension on your skin. Now your natural, fresh faced look is complete and you can now apply your liner and lipstick for a pretty bright pop of red. With this look, we recommend using liner in shade Scarlett Red and liquid lipstick in shade Love.
