The holidays are upon us and the prettiest and most festive time of the year. When else can you glam up with a red lip and sparkles just to run to grab a peppermint mocha from your favorite coffee spot? Okay when else if you are not me? Speaking about favorite spots and being a bit glamorous, this season I have collaborated with one of my favorite places to bring to you an awesome beauty challenge and I hope that you will join me. The Mexican beauty queen turned TV host, Ana Patricia Gamez, put together these amazing beauty tips and has challenged us to recreate and add our twist to these go-to holiday looks.
Normally, I keep it simple and focus on just a red lip but I really loved these shimmer shadows from the Pixi Palette Rosette. Ana Patricia recommends a shimmer shadow for an evening look but because I am feeling festive, I’m thinking I might just pull it off during the day by mixing both the day lid shadow in the palette with the night lid, mixing in a highlight, and a slight contour in the crease. Check out my quick step by step below.
Using my finger, I am pressing in the day lid color all over the eye and up into the crease and layering the night lid, again with my finger from the lash line to just below the crease.
Using the eye contour shadows and a fluffy contour brush, I am lightly blending it into what I’ve already done.
Finally, I add a little highlight under the brow and the inner corners of the eye and finish the look with a few layers of mascara. For the evening, I’ll add faux lashes for extra glam!

Now in the spirit of the season, I’d like to share my favorite part, parrandas, also known as posadas in certain countries, in which we go from home to home celebrating with music and good food. So in that spirit, we’ve created our own parranda, except here we are giving you full doses of beauty in preparation for the fun times ahead. Thank you for stopping at “my home” and I hope you’d join me in visiting my friends over at theirs to check out their beauty tricks, tips, and a jolly good time. Que #LindaNavidad.
