This look has been puttering around in my head for a while but I think it’s perfect for this time of year. It’s dark, moody and festive. Winter color schemes are generally very cool which don’t work particularly well with my skin so I am thrilled I have a look that is warm-toned.

My only pet peeve is I had to dig into multiple eye shadow palettes. I can create something extremely similar with the very pigmented and blendable Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette but I didn’t want to feature it again so close to the last makeup (Easy as Pumpkin Pie eye look linked here). Though, I don’t think people would mind too much. After all, it shows I use the palette frequently, right? I’m also getting into a little pickle because my favorite palettes are also limited edition and no longer available. It’s a fine line isn’t it!

Now that I’ve rambled on about random slightly unrelated things let’s get into the video. It is simple, easy and very arthritis-friendly! And hey, if you try out this look let me know send me a Tweet so I can see it (is ‘tweet’ capitalized??).
