Sometimes it’s just time for a glowy berry lip makeup look. Winter does that to me. And as much as I love a classic red lip, I LOVE wearing a berry colored shade in the winter as well. It’s a nice alternative and it’s much easier to find one that works with your skin tone!
I found a bunch of great products at Ulta, including two new makeup applicators that I was excited to put to the test in this tutorial. The first is this silicone makeup applicator that I was very curious about. I typically use a sponge like this but I loved that this silicone one does not absorb any makeup! I also grabbed a set of tiny egg shaped makeup sponges for applying and blending concealer. My other sponge was a little large so I liked how small these ones were!
The rest of the products I used were some of my favorites. My top 3 items of the collection are the Stila Smudge Stick in Damsel, the Tartelette in Bloom palette, and Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation. I know these products will deliver and last all day.
Let’s walk through the steps that I took to get this look!
First, I primed my skin with Bare Minerals Prime Time. I love this primer because it feels like silk on my skin and helps my makeup to stay put!
Next I applied eyelid primer and then a shimmery cream shade from the Tartelette in Bloom palette called Funny Girl. In my crease I added a mix of Jetsetter and Rocker from the same palette.
You may notice some eyeshadow fall out on my cheekbone. This is why I do my eyes first! I can just grab a makeup removal cloth and wipe away the mess!
For eyeliner, I applied a medium thick line of Stila Smudge Stick in Damsel, then immediately grabbed a smudge brush to smudge the line in toward my corner and out past the edge of my lid into a very soft cat eye shape.
After a few swipes of Benefit Roller Lash mascara, I applied Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage foundation using the Siligo makeup sponge applicator. I found that the product goes on easily and I like how well it blends in!
Next I added a seriously awesome under eye concealer by Urban Decay called All Nighter. This will not MOVE once you put it on! I used the small sponge applicators and found them perfect for getting the concealer applied and blended in!
I filled my brows with Benefit’s Goof Proof brow pencil. This is slightly angled which makes it so easy to use!
With the same smudge brush I used for my eyeliner on the upper lash line, I smudged a bit of the eyeliner onto my lower lash line and added a few coats of mascara.
Finally, for the GLOW part of this look, I used a pretty highlight shade from a Smashbox palette called Blow a Fuse Pearl. It adds nice lightness and highlight to my cheekbones!
Finally I finished with a bit of blush and a pretty lipcolor by Smashbox called Fig. I’ve found that the Smashbox Be Legendary lipsticks last SO LONG! I’d highly recommend if you like a moisturizing, long-wearing lipstick.
The final look felt perfectly holiday with the berry lip and the highlighted cheekbones!
You can find all these products, and so much more, at Ulta. I love that you can stop in to one store and find a huge range of drugstore brands as well as high end makeup!
