This look uses Gwen Stefani's Urban Decay eye palette to create a smoky gray eye look. It also uses MAC's limited edition Ionized Mineralize Rich Lipstick to create a sliver lip. I really enjoyed doing this different makeup look, but I'm the first to admit I look a little like I'm ready for outer space or something. But I think the whole look would be changed with a different lip color. A nude or pink lip would make this look completely wearable for everyday. And sometimes it's just fun to try something new even if it's a silver lipstick! I think someone who can rock that new silver hair trend would look amazing with this silver lipstick.
This is my very favorite makeup tutorial to date! I just love the color combination of the green and purple. The purple actually looked like a hot pink in the palette, but on me it looks more like a neon purple, which I love! I used Urban Decay Vice 4 palette. It's another great Urban Decay palette, especially if you love to play with some fun eyeshadow colors. The lipstick is Pretty Please from MAC. It's such a fun pearly pink lipstick.
This adorable Christmas sweater was less than $17! A deal and so cute. And since you might only be able to wear a Christmas sweater to a party or two during the holiday season, there's no reason to spend a lot. But you will be ready for next year! This outfit was my choice for a work holiday party. The sweater was just the right amount of festive and it was also comfy, which is always a bonus. Christmas is almost here so you only have a few more days to wear those Christmas sweaters! Let's make it Christmas sweater week. I'm also wearing a new lipstick from MAC. It's Mariah Carey's special edition "All I Want" lipstick. It's a gorgeous glimmering champagne lipstick. You can view swatches on my instagram account @melissamchee. The lipstick is only available online.
I also want to wish you a very Merry Christmas from Portland, Oregon! Thank you for stopping by my blog during this busy holiday season. Have a wonderful week, take some time for yourself - enjoy some peppermint hot cocoa with lots of marshmallows and cheers to a new year.
