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!

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.
