Not Your Ordinary Holiday Makeup Look...with NARS, NYX and Wet n Wild

Smoky green eyes with plum lips are the not the typical combo you often see for a Holiday Makeup look. The colors are rich and dark, and actually violates one of the "makeup rule", never do dramatic eyes and lips at the same time. But it's such a gorgeous look. The green and plum with the hint of gold are fun and festive colors and looks good together. This would be perfect for your next Christmas party!

Feel free to argue. If you disagree, let me know down the comment bar below.

I hope you like it!

For the eyes, I used my NARS Mini Eye Series Palette (Night Clubbing and Night Star) and NYX e/s in Mermaid Green. It's been a long time since I used this palette. I've forgotten all the beautiful colors in it. I need to give it some more love.

Wet n Wild MegaLast l/s on Sugar Plum Fairy with NYX e/s Yellow Marigold on the center of the lips.
