Pretty Persuasion Holiday Makeup Tutorial

The holidays are all about traditions. We love the classic reds and golds in holiday makeup (stay tuned for our classic holiday makeup tutorial!), but sometimes it’s fun to break from tradition. If your style is a little edgy, this is the look for you.

Alter Ego Collection

The Alter Ego holiday collection has everything you need to recreate this look, including our limited edition Persuasion Eye Palette. This versatile collection of shadows has a fun mix of neutrals and bolds.

This eye makeup absolutely glows! Our senior makeup artist, Janeena Billera, started with a deep purple shadow on the outer half of the lid and a rose gold shadow on the inner half. She bridged the gap with a matte caramel in the crease and yellow gold in the center of the lid.

Adding gold to the center of the lid makes the eyes pop and adds intense dimension. Janeena used the same technique in our lilac makeup tutorial.

Since we went for a bold eye statement, we kept the cheeks and lips light with Cream Blush in firstlove, Precision Lip Pencil in soulmate and Lipstick in organza.

Pretty Persuasion, our limited edition holiday beauty collection, is inspired by the art of persuasion. Explore all three makeup kits: Alter Ego, Bold Pursuit and Lip Temptation.
