Thanksgiving is in a couple of days for us here in the states. I wanted to post the look I actually plan to wear on Thanksgiving. It maybe a bit much for a day with the family but I can’t help myself. Besides, this look is actually pretty easy to create too.

 Let’s get started!

Kat Von D Monarch Palette

To create this look, I used The Kat Von D Monarch Palette. I’m in love with this palette.

Then with a flat shader brush, I took Summerfly onto the inner corner and blended onto the lid lightly for a pop of gold.
