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!
To create this look, I used The Kat Von D Monarch Palette. I’m in love with this palette.
I’m obsessed with these warm tones, and they’re perfect for fall.
As always, I’m starting with my brows done and a primed eye so our shadows don’t get all creasy and greasy.
Next up with Entomology and a large fluffy brush I applied it from lid to brow. This creates a nice clean canvas for our shadows and helps with the blend.
Then taking Wrath on a blender brush I went crazy. LOL. I applied Wrath to the lid and blended up into the crease and softly toward the brow pulled the shadow outward toward the trail of the brow creating a lifted effect. Don’t forget to blend blend blend.
On a smaller fluffy brush, I took Papilio into the outer V and blended gently inward onto the lid.
Then with a flat shader brush, I took Summerfly onto the inner corner and blended onto the lid lightly for a pop of gold.
On the lower lash line, I blended Wrath across the bottom leaving the inner corner bare.
Then with Papilio, I created depth on the outer corner and blended it into Wrath.
Lastly, for shadow, I took Summerfly along the inner corner of the bottom lash line.
I tight lined with a brown-black liner .
Then finished off the eye with a few coats of Kat Von D’s Immortal Lash 24 Hour Mascara.
For the lips, I used Kat Von D’s Studded Kiss Lipstick in Archangel.
I did my contour as I showed in my review of The Kat Von D Shade+Light Contour Palette, you can check that out here. I used The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit for my blush, bronzer, and highlight.Here’s the finished look!
I hope everyone celebrating Thanksgiving has a wonderful holiday and gets some good nibbles. I know I’m looking forward to some turkey. Also, check out my other fall looks for more holiday inspiration.
Bee Beautiful. Bee You.
