A Holiday Party look... with rhinestones!

Yay!  I did a look I actually like!!  I've been pondering about what look to do to enter in the Makeupbee Holiday Party look contest.  So when I was at the craft store the other night I picked up some rhinestones to use because I knew they'd be good for a holiday look.  But I was having a really hard time deciding how I was going to place them and what color to use them with.  Every color I was thinking of didn't excite me.  Until this morning when I thought of turquoise.

So I did this look and I'm very pleased with how it turned out.

My husband was laughing at me because you can't really see the rhinestones when my eyes are open but when I blink, there they are haha.  I kinda feel a bit like a Christmas ornament but that's ok with me sometimes haha.

What I used:
NYX JEP "milk"
NYX Ultra Pearl Mania "Turquoise"
MAC "Teal" Pigment
Inglot 395 P
TIJI Bed Head "White" shadow
MAC Blacktrack fluidline
Maybelline the Falsies Volum' Express
lash glue 
Halloween lashes

MAC "Myth" lipstick
MAC "Pink Friday" lipstick
MAC "Boy Bait" cremesheen glass

I think it's a good look and it'd be perfect to wear for a holiday party.  I think that holidays are a time where you can go all out and do whatever you want and people really can't say anything (haha I love the holidays!)!  

You guys should head over to makeupbee and post a look of your own!  And if you wouldn't mind voting for mine (which is here, your support would be greatly appreciated!  The grand prize is a $500 gift certificate for Sephora.

I hope you guys like this look as much as I do!  Thanks guys!


  1. Love love love!! This looks is amazing! You must tell me where you got rhinestones small enough for your eyes, because every time I look for them they are too big for cosmetic wear.
