A glamorous holiday look in 9 steps

Get this sultry, dramatic look in just nine simple steps

 

Step 1: Skin Primer

Step 1: Skin Primer

STEP 1: SKIN PRIMER

Every great look starts with a great base. Prep your entire face using MAC PREP+PRIME Skin Base Visage.

This lightweight gel lotion is formulated with special-effect silicones that neutralizes redness and evens out your skin tone while making you look radiant. It also improves the application of foundation.

After applying, let it set for a minute or two.

 


 

Step 2: Foundation

Step 2: Foundation

STEP 2: FOUNDATION

Apply MAC STUDIO FIX FLUID Liquid Foundation.

Comfortable and long-wearing, this product combines a natural matte finish and medium-to-full build able coverage. It also protects your skin from the sun with broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 15. It blends easily and evenly, minimizing the appearance of pores and imperfections for a more flawless look.

This product is best for oily skin. It comes in 36 shades.

 


 

Step 3

Step 3: Concealer

STEP 3: CONCEALER

Conceal flaws, skin discolorations and dark spots such as under eye circles using MAC PRO LONGWEAR CONCEALER.

This fluid concealer, available in 16 shades, provides medium-to-full coverage with a natural matte finish that lasts up to 15 hours.

 


 

Step 4: Eye Shadow (Base)

Step 4: Eye Shadow (Base)

STEP 4: EYE SHADOW (BASE)

The MAC PRO LONGWEAR PAINT POT is a long-wearing blendable cream shadow that can be worn alone or with other products. It also serves as concealer and eye primer, making the colors of your eyeshadow pop out more.

This product, available in 26 different shades, builds coverage without looking heavy or cake, and will not streak or crease. Here, Arnauld uses the Paint Pot in Painterly.

 


 

Step 5: Eye Shadow (Crease)

Step 5: Eye Shadow (Crease)

STEP 5: EYE SHADOW (CREASE)

Apply MAC EYE SHADOW (pictured: Paradisco) on the crease of the eye to create definition. You may also apply it to the entire eyelid, depending on the style you prefer.

This highly-pigmented powder blends evenly and can be used wet and dry.

 


 

Step 6: Eye Shadow (Definition)

Step 6: Eye Shadow (Defining)

STEP 6: EYE SHADOW (DEFINING)

Overlay a darker shade using a cat-eye effect, and blend well over the crease. Arnauld uses the Espresso shade to create a more dramatic look.

 


 

Step 7: Eyebrows & Eyelashes

Step 7: Eyebrows & Eyelashes

STEP 7: EYEBROWS & EYELASHES

Define your eyes with eyeliner. The MAC FLUIDLINE in Blacktrack provides the precision of a liquid liner with a silkier, softer finish. The product goes on foolproof with a brush in an easy dip-and-stroke action. Arnauld suggests applying this to your lash line using MAC brush in 266, 209 or 210.

After the eyeliner, open the eyes further with the EXTENDED PLAY LASH MASCARA, a  waterproof formula that lasts for up to 16 hours. Press the wand into the lashes as close to the roots as possible, and ‘shimmy’ the brush from root to tip. Continue to build until the desired effect is achieved.

Complete the look with the FLUID BROW GELCREME in True Brunette. This is a long-wearing waterproof gel in a pot that gives precise definition to eyebrows. Apply this product using the MAC brush in 208.

 


 

Step 8: Blush, Contour & Highlighting

Step 8: Blush, Contour & Highlighting

STEP 8: BLUSH, CONTOUR AND HIGHLIGHT

To achieve a natural looking shade, apply MAC POWDER BLUSH (pictured: Harmony) to cheeks, making sure to avoid harsh lines. You can also use this shade to contour at the same time.

Add a high-impact shimmering glow to the skin with MAC EXTRA DIMENSION HIGHLIGHTER (pictured, Whisper of Gilt). Sweep this formula to the upper cheeks, to the temple, and to the tip of your nose to sculpt and highlight your face. This leaves a luminous and well-defined finish.

 


 

Step 9: Lipstick & Finishing Touches

Step 9: Lipstick & Finishing Touches

STEP 9: LIPSTICK AND FINISHING TOUCHES

Lip pencil is necessary for shaping, lining, or filling in lips. Arnauld applies the MAC LIP PENCIL in Trust in Red directly to the lips as a base. Then he applies MAC LIPSTICK in Diva using the MAC brush 313 for a clean and polished look.

Complete the holiday glam look with the MAC PREP+PRIME TRANSPARENT FINISHING POWDER. This is a silky finishing powder that provides an invisible way to set makeup.

 


 

The result: A glamorous look perfect for the holidays
