Affordable Christmas Makeup Look



What I used for this look:

Urban Decay Primer Potion (Elf eye primer will work for the inexpensive primers [$1] but I don’t own any other primer at the moment.)

NYX Ultra Pearl Mania Loose Eyeshadow in color Charcoal ($3)

NYX  Ultra Pearl Mania Loose Eyeshadow in color Light Purple ($3)

NYX Ultra Pearl Mania Loose Eyeshadow in color Yellow Gold ($3)

NYX Ultra Pearl Mania Loose Eyeshadow in color Pale Gold ($3)

Elf Shimmering Facial Whip in color Spotlight ($1)

Elf Liquid Eyeliner in color Black ($1)

Maybelline The Falsies Waterproof Mascara in color Black ($6)

-Side note: Maybelline The Falsies is an awesome mascara. If you’re into youtube makeup tutorials you’ll see a lot of makeup artists raving about it!

Elf Eyelash Curler ($1)

Mary Kay Signiture Lip Liner in color Dark Red ($12)


Prime your eyes all the way to your brow bone. Next, Apply the NYX Yellow Gold all over your lids.


What’s great about the NYX Loose Eyeshadows is that when you wet them, it’s like they turn into a different color. Take a tiny bit of pigment and a damp brush, mix together, and put the NYX Yellow Gold onto the center of your eyelid. This will add shine and bring more light to your eyes.



Take the NYX Light Purple and apply it on your crease and a little above your crease. I put the purple in my inner corners too, but you can skip that if you’d like.


Blend it out and make the colors smooth.


Next I put NYX Charcoal on my botton lash line and blended it into the purple that was in my inner corner.


I used Elf Liquid Liner to line my eyes and flick it out.



(Before mascara.)


Have fun and have a happy holiday!


I like using lip liner as my “lipstick” because I feel it stays on longer and isn’t quite so messy. Dark Red by Mary Kay Signature Collection.
