So here is the second look for my edgy holiday beauty look series I did with my talented friend Tarcy who is also a makeup artist. With this look, we focused on creating a very luminous and glowing skin and decided to create an ombre, vampy lip.

Like I mentioned in the previous beauty look post, this was a fun project we quickly threw together to experiment with different makeup techniques and trends. I don't expect everyone to try this same look since I know it might be a little out-there for some of your personal tastes, but I just hope you can take some of the elements from these looks and create your own version for the holidays!

If you have great skin, why not show it off with a little bit of that extra sparkle? Normally, I like my face to look matte but the sheen Tracy created on my cheekbones and other high points of my face is just gorgeous. Now I just have one last look left for this series and I'll be sharing the final inspiration next week so stay tuned :)

Meanwhile, let me know what you think about this look or other themed makeup look series you'd like to see on The Weekend Diary in the future! You also still have a few days left to enter the Clarisonic Mia giveaway I am hosting in honor of Thanksgiving to all of the supportive readers and the second birthday of the blog.

Feelin' a little lucky?



Thank you for reading The Weekend Diary, I truly appreciate your support and I would love to hear what you're thinking :)
