Here are some of the main products I used, watch the full tutorial for all products. I am obsessed with Bobbi Brown Correctors for dark circles and discoloration, it just works wonders for me and most medium-dark skin tones. I always start off with Bobbi Brown's Peach Corrector around the inner corners to brighten the eye area. I then used Makeup Forever's HD Foundation in 2 shades (123 & 155), one that matched my skin and one slightly darker to create a natural contour.
To set my foundation and concealer, I used Makeup Forever's HD Powder and MAC's blush in Blunt to contour. It's always best to use different powder shades to set the different shades of your skin. This helps create a more natural finish and won't ruin the hard work you did to transform your skin with the foundations.
For the lips, I used NYX lip liner in Deep Purple for a plum base and to help darken any lip color I apply over. As beautiful as MAC's Ruby Woo is, I wanted something more sultry and purple based, so using a darker lip liner helps transform the red color.
Using a variety of eyeshadows from BH Cosmetics to MAC, I created a neutral golden smokey eye, with a hint of plum for that holiday touch and glow. Don't be afraid to add some color to your holiday makeup and always use golds to give that nice warmth to the skin. Happy Holidays!
