Rose Gold Cosmo Makeup – Holiday look 1

Hello gals,

Welcome to the Holiday Makeup look series, each makeup in this series has been created keeping in my current trends so that the looks you create this season are hit looks!

For the very first look of this series I chose a soft Rose Gold look, as this has really been hit the color almost all year round. It is a beautiful feminine chic color! Keep reading to see my step by step creation of this look and the products I used.

Holiday Rosegold Makeup Tutorial I did the eye makeup using the Huda Desert Dusk Palette. I used different finishes to get the best contrasts in my makeup.

Step 1.

Apply the shade ‘Bloodmoon’ from the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk palette all over the eyelid, and the shade ‘Oud’ in the crease and blend.

Step 4:
