Sugar Plum Fairy Makeup Look

I just uploaded a makeup tutorial for this look and I used the Sugar Plum Fairy song as the background music and now, it's stuck in my head! I like it though. It's such a whimsical and festive song and it reminds me of my nieces' ballet performance at the Nutcracker.

Speaking of ballet, I did a makeup look inspired my niece Ysabella, who played the Sugar Plum Fairy in the 2011 Marat Daukayev Nutcracker. I mentioned her on this blog before when I did her makeup for my cousin's wedding HERE. I based the colors I used on my eyes on the beautiful dress she wore. It's peachy pink with gold details. It's so pretty in person.

As always, I used affordable makeup to achieve this look. I used Milani eyeshadows in Exotic Berry on the crease, Taffy all over the lids and Peachy on the brow bone. Milani is one of my favorite drugstore brands, and I absolutely love their eyeshadows. They are pigmented, soft and easy to blend.

For the gold liner on my upper lash line, I used the gold cream shadow in my Wet n Wild Color Icon Glitter Kit in Shimmer Station. It's very bright and has a metallic finish that I really like.

On my lips, I used L'Oreal lipstick in Pink Tranquilo, a pretty mude pink color, then dabbed Milani eyeshadow in Taffy just in the center of the lips for a nice highlight. I love doing this trick. It gives an interesting dimension to the lips and it actually makes them appear fuller and bigger.
