The holiday party season is approaching, so it felt the right time to share an easy sparkly makeup tutorial that will come in handy when all the Christmas celebrations start. I recently remembered that I own the Huda Beauty Mini Palette in Mauve Obsessions, so, I wanted to give it a chance by creating a festive eye makeup look with it. Let me tell you I loved it, so it earned back its place to my main makeup rack. Can’t wait to create more looks with it!
So, if you want to see how you can achieve this festive look, keep reading!
Huda Beauty Mini Palette – Mauve Obsessions Makeup Tutorial
What you’ll need
- Huda Beauty Mini Palette Mauve Obsessions
- Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara
- Mac Lipstick Velvet Teddy
- Blending Brush
- Fluffy Brush
- Flat brush
- Eyeliner (optional)
- Fake Lashes (optional)
Take the lightest color of the palette and apply it to the whole lid. This will make the shadows blend easily. Then take the light brown color of the palette and with a fluffy brush apply it to the higher point of the lid. This will be your transition shade, so remember to blend well.
With a flat brush mix the two darker burgundy colors and lightly pack them on the outer corner of the upper lid. Take your blending brush and blend well until there is an ombre effect between them and the transition shade.
Take the dark purple color of the palette and add it to the outer corners of the upper lids, a little lower than the two previous colors. Blend well for a seamless result. Then take the same color into a flat brush and pack it carefully to the outer corners of your lower lashline. Take the blending brush and blend it outwards for a softer result.
Time for the fun part. The glitters! Wet your flat brush and pack a generous amount of the boldest glittery eyeshadow. Apply it to the center of the upper lid. Don’t be afraid to add more for an ultra-shiny result. After you finish, apply what is left on the brush to the center of your lower lashline.
Take the lighter glitter shadow and apply it to the blank space of the upper lid. Make sure to be generous and blend between the two glitter shadows for a seamless result. Repeat what you did with the previous glitter shadow. With what is left on the brush color the remaining part of your lower lashline.
Apply the lightest shimmery color from the Huda Beauty mini palette to your inner corners. That will give some extra shine and make your eyes look bigger (I promise this picture doesn’t do justice to this step).
Then, apply a generous coat of mascara. For a dramatic effect, you can add falsies and eyeliner, but I choose not to do it because I was pretty satisfied with the result after the application of mascara. Last, I went for my favorite everyday muted lipstick which is the shade velvet teddy by Mac and voila! You are now good to go!
What do you think about the Huda Beauty Mini Palette Mauve Obsessions? Did you like the outcome? I personally had fun creating this look, so I think you will have too! The colors were easy to blend and work with, so if you are in the hunt for a beginner-friendly, yet glam palette I would definitely recommend this one!
