Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base, Burberry Eye Color Cream in “Festive Gold”, Burberry Kisses Lipstick in “Military Red”, Burberry Kisses Gloss in “Military Red”, Burberry Kisses Gloss in “Festive Gold”, Burberry Nail Polish in “Festive Gold” (Red Valentino Top on sale)
I think the most subtle but striking color to add to the eyes is gold. One with a slight shimmer, not too much sparkle, and in a soft, champagne hue. I’m all about adding makeup that enhances, not covers and looks natural while still making a statement. This season, I’ve been adding the color to more than just my eyes, wearing it on my lips and nails. The ultimate holiday combination? The perfect shade of red mixed with that same radiant gold.
This holiday beauty look is a simple one, with only a few steps but dramatic results. I start by applying Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base in Nude Radiance 01 to give my skin a glowing base (also seen in this past post). It leaves your skin dewy, light and still breathable throughout the day.
After applying my everyday beauty products (bronzer, mascara), I’ll add Burberry Eye Color Cream in “Festive Gold” to my lids. This is the most gorgeous shade of gold and the cream shadow glides on easily and stays in place. What I love most about cream shadows is the fact that they blend so beautifully, allowing me to adjust how subtle or distinct I want my shadow.
Next step is lip! I’m using Burberry Kisses Gloss in “Military Red” and “Festive Gold” from their new holiday collection. I’ll first apply the red shade and then add the gold on top for a bit of shimmer. Both glosses look great by themselves but even more festive when paired together. Burberry Kisses Gloss in “Military Red” will get more pigmented with the more you apply- so if you prefer a lighter lip, just add one swipe!
Burberry Kisses Gloss in “Festive Gold” adds that subtle shimmer that I love.
I’m always switching between glosses and lipstick, with the later usually for the evening. For this look, I’m using Burberry Kisses Lipstick in “Military Red”– a very holiday appropriate shade and a great true, true red.
The finishing touch is adding a bit of gold shimmer to my nails. I added one coat of Burberry Nail Polish in “Festive Gold” to the red base for another layered red & gold combination.
