One last post before Christmas. I wanted to go ahead and share this Get the Look for some last minute holiday makeup inspiration even though it’s totally inspired by Riverdale. I recently got my claws on a South Side Serpents tee and it got my little wheels turning.
For this look I wanted a smoky sultry green eyeshadow and a shiny bright red lip.
To create the look I used the Kat Von D Fetish Palette and the Huda Beauty Emerald Obsessions. Both palettes have green tones I wanted to use and some of the mattes from each.
Let’s get started.
As I like to do, I have primed my eyes and done my brows. I also decided to use a bit of medical tape as a guide. This is an effortless way to get a winged out look and you can be messy as hell. When the tape comes off you have the cleanest and sharpest line ever.
Now for some shadow work.
First shade I am going in with is Sex from the KVD Fetish Palette as my transition.
On a large fluffy brush I blended Sex all throughout the transition area, crease, toward the inner part of the brow and pulled outward in a cat eye shape.
Sex is such a good mustard yellow and perfect for the transition in this look.
Next I jumped straight in with Suspension, a deep cool toned brown on a smaller fluffy brush.
I applied Suspension into the crease and pulled the shadow out to follow that cat eye shape while making sure to blend it smoothly into Sex. It’s a tad patchy right now but it gets better. This is one of those looks that is rough until you finish.
Moving on to the greens.
With a damp flat brush I went in with Shibari, a metallic olive green.
Shibari went right onto the lid.
Jumping over to the Huda Beauty Emerald Obsessions.
I next went in with this metallic pale chartreuse on a small detailer brush.
This shade went into the inner corner and pulled up hugging my inner crease.
Back to the Fetish Palette.
Next I took the matte black called Rubber on a very smaller blending brush.
I applied Rubber to the outer portion of the lid and into the outer crease blending with the brown. I also used it to line my upper lash line.
At this point, I did more back and forth between all the shades I used to get everything blended how I wanted. When you blend shades get lost so there is some going back and forth to keep the shades vibrant as well. I spent a good amount of time on making sure the colors were seamless. Blend until your hand falls off.
Then I removed my tape and cleaned up any fall out. You can see what a crisp line the tape creates.
For a little extra shine of the inner corner I took this super metallic pale green from the Huda Emerald Obsessions just on the inner corner as well.
I went ahead and did most my face makeup and moved on to the lower lash line while I was baking. I started with the Suspension shade on a small brush and blended it close to the lash line and up to connect with the winged out portion.
And in with the matte black for more depth and a seamless flow with the upper eyelid. This gives an elongated cat eye shade while still looking super smoky.
Back to the inner corner, I used that same pale green I used on the inner corner from the Emerald Obsessions to brighten everything up. I pulled this shade inward to meet up the matte shades about a third of the way in to open up the eye some since it was so smoky.
And that’s it for the shadow. It’s not a hard look to do but will take some patience blending because I was using such a deep shade into a mustard yellow it took some extra effort.
I finished the eyes off with a coat of mascara and some Ardell Faux Mink Lashes.
The Finished Eyes
For the lips I wanted a true bright red with juicy glossy finish
. I used a matte fire engine red from Stila in the shade Beso topped with Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick in Flambe. This is one of my favorite red lip combos. I have full reviews of both lip products linked below.
I even did my nails to tie in.
The Finished Look
And here is the completed look. Please ignore how my foundation is too dark. I didn’t notice that until I looked at the picks. I wasn’t thinking and didn’t mix my white mixer into Covergirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir which is a tad too deep for me but damn it’s a good foundation. I have a review here.
I honestly couldn’t remember if I tried on what other products I used because once again I didn’t make notes and this was done almost a month ago. I did use the Kat Von D Fetish Blush + Highlighter Palette. Review here.
Here is my review of both palettes I used:
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this post. I loved how this look came out, just as much as I love Riverdale and the Serpents. I’m at that age where I can’t tell if I am more attracted to Jughead or his Dad… Who’s with on that? Like I know the actor playing Jughead isn’t that much younger than me but he’s playing a high school student. Just feels kinda creepy and I mean have ya looked at FP?
Ah well, as Jenna Marbles would sing, “Just a 32-year-old lady” Well, in a month I will be and like Jenna, I am doing what I wanna do or continue to do so and I hope ya’ll stay along for the ride.
Happy Holidays and I will see ya after crimmus for a NYE easy glam look.
