Cranberry Sauce – Thanksgiving Makeup.

Thanksgiving is creeping up on us here in the US which for most of us mean family gatherings. I wanted to create what I would call a daytime family dinner “appropriate” makeup. 

 photo 20151115_223429_zpsnrp7agv7.jpgFor the eyeshadow I’m using these 4 from Tarte that came in a gift set but do not despair if you don’t have them, here are some links to some great alternatives in similar shades I found across the interwebz. The shades look warmer than they are in real life. Example; Pillow talk has a much more pinky undertone then you see in the picture.

Now, on to how to get this look.

Then, finished the eye off with Tarte’s Light Camera Lashes.

For skin, I did my usual routine.

Maybelline Fit Me
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush in Deserving
Wet n Wild Contour Palette
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder

I thought this look would pair great with a deep red lip. This would also look great with a more neutral lip.

And here’s the finished look!
