Tutorial :: Gold & Cranberry Holiday Look

I wish I was able to do multiple holiday looks, but after being under the weather, I just ran out of time 🙁 So I decided to do one holiday classic holiday look, which is very similar to the look I wore to my Holiday party for work.

I love the warm of the gold and cranberry and a glittery lip for some jazz! I used the Tarte Jewelry Box palette, which I reviewed previously.

Show & Tell :: Tarte’s The Jewelry Box (Swatches)

So I went ahead got a jump start on my list for Santa and picked myself up the Tarte Jewelry Box palette since I received my $15 Beauty Insider gift card from Sephora. I’ve had my eye on this one for a while and it’s so amazing!

The palette comes with 16 shimmer shadows, 16 matte shadows, a highlighter, a bronzer, and 5 long wear eyeliners. It is a limited edition set and only available at Sephora. It makes a great gift for the holidays! It even comes with a cute little necklace!

What Tarte says:

What it is:

What it does:

As an added bonus, this festive jewelry box comes with its own “off the chain” gilded trinket, guaranteed to be your go-to accessory for holiday parties and year-round.

I’ve swatched all the eye colors, pencils and highlight/bronzer…
