Blogmas - Come Play With Me: Underneath The Mistletoe

14 December 2014
I totally missed the last Come Play With Me round so when I was asked if I would be willing to come up with the next theme I couldn't say no.. Also it's Christmas and you guys know I'm all about promoting this time of year.

I opted to go for a simple, romantic look, something you might do for a Christmas-y date night.


My base consisted of a layer of Secret Kiss Face Fit Strobe Cream and Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream.

This look was all about the eyes for me, I wanted to use a shit tonne of shimmer and metallics so I started with a base of Australis AC ME Jay Zed in the inner corner and Australis AC ME Plum Diddy over the rest of the lid, I then used 3 Cosmetic Kitchen Mineral Shadows; Celebrity on the inner third, Wheat on the center and Gold Leaf on the outer third and I also blended this in to the crease to help transition my other colours.

The Cosmetic Kitchen shadows turned out to be a hell of a lot more pigmented than I expected so I had to help bring back some depth, since I wanted purple to be prominent in the look I used MAC Shadowy Lady and Maira's Mood to create a custom purple, I then took a teeny tiny bit or Carbon and worked that in to the outer corners of my crease. To finish it all off I used MAC Brule to blend the purple up close to my brow and then blended a little Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Mood Light over the Brule to make sure there was the softest pinky purple tint fading up to my brow.

I finished with Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink for the wing, Flormar Ultra Black Eyeliner in my lash line and Clinique High Impact Mascara in Brightening Black on my lashes.

  1. You have certainly created a beautiful romantic look, Hailey. You will have to be careful walking around mistletoe looking like that, unless you want a lot of random kisses ;) Love this theme, hun!

    1. Hahaha thank you Indie! there is only one person I want kisses from so I'll remember to carry a stick with me just in case ;)

  2. I love purple with gold, & I use pink a lot too, it really brings out your eye colour. Fabulous look!

  3. So beautiiful Hailey - definitely romantic, and would you believe I've never done a purple and gold eye look? Whoa - thanks for the inspiration doll. I'm a hundred years late, but I've finally posted my version - Happy New Year babe!
