Holiday Look #1: Gunmetal Smoky Eye + 4 Lip Combinations

The holidays have arrived!

As the year comes to an end, we slowly approach Christmas and New Years Eve. The two holidays when people dress up, go out, party and even drink up (if their over 18 of course). Since we are but a few days from each, I figured why not create a few holiday makeup tutorials that would be great to wear for any occasion or event.
This first look is a Gunmetal smoky eye. It's not too dark or too light of a gunmetal eye, so it will soften any outfit you wear. It may even make your face glow depending on which lip color, blush and foundation you use. Being that Urban Decay has come out with the Naked 3 Palette (still debating on if I want to get it) I decided to get some use of out of my Naked Palette and play around with a few shades. I love the combination and how the colors truly work together to create such a playful, yet sexy eye look.

This look is for those that want to go smoky without having to go dark or vampy on the eyes. It's all about keeping the eyes sexy without going overboard while still giving it an elegant twist no matter what your outfit of choice is.

I did original create this look weeks ago, but wanted to record it and come up with 4 total lip combinations or looks. Here is the original look:
Now that you have seen the original look, check below to see the other 3 lip combinations that would go great with this look.
