I think this glitter cut crease is so cute for the holidays! What's your go to look for the season? 💓 DETAILS: @beautybakeriemakeup Neapolitan EyesCream palette in the shades Strawberry, Sundae Funday, and Drive-Thru in the crease, and Cookie Dough EyesCream cream shadow as a base with Chocolate Chip from the palette over top, and their Gold Sprinkles glitter in the crease. I used their BROWnies in Brown for my brows, and Chocolate Chip again for my brow bone, inner corner, and cheek bone highlight ✨ #beautybakerie
They say too much of everything should be avoided. This holiday trend is the exception to that rule. Go on and overdo that mascara! Apply on both upper and lower lashes to make your eyes look bigger.
