All About Dem Lips: Thanksgiving Sparkle

Happy Thanksgiving Eve, my loves!

I decided to upload a last-minute tutorial to celebrate an artistic form of Thanksgiving - the last farewell to autumn as winter and Christmastime are just around the corner now.

Aren't the colors fun? My picture here doesn't show all the depths of the colors used, such as browns, copper, gold, green, and red, but I think that you get the general idea... 

I hope you like it!  Here is the video:

And the products used:

MAC Studio Fix Foundation in NC15
Maybelline Lip Liner in Espresso
CoverGirl Flipstick in Mink (the dark one)
Laurenim pigment in 24 K Angel
L'Oreal pigment in After the Rain
L.A. Splash Eyebase (for the glitter)
Generic cosmetic copper glitter (I don't remember the brand)
Makeup Geek pigment in New Year's Eve
Jordana lip liner in Cranberry Cocktail

I hope you enjoyed this last minute look! While it's definitely not wearable, I did have fun putting together all these autumn-inspired colors and making it something fun and sparkly.

It is my biggest hope that if you are reading this that you know how loved you are! Stay happy, warm, and healthy for Thanksgiving and eat lots of delicious food and take in all those memories with your family.

So much love to you!
