Here is a step by step easy and clean holiday makeup tutorial! All products used in this tutorial except the eyebrow powder are natural, vegan, and free from any harmful chemicals.  I swear by these products and highly recommend them. The best thing about clean beauty is the products don’t stripe off the natural glow of the skin instead they help enhance it!

Clean Holiday Makeup Tutorial

Step-1: Color Corrector/ Concealer

Live Tinted Huestick in the shade ‘Origin‘. The multi-purpose stick can be used as a color corrector, lipstick, blush, and as eyeshadow.


Step-2: Foundation

Ilia Serum Foundation in the shade ‘Bedarra’.  With light-medium coverage, this is my all-time favorite natural foundation. I love that It doesn’t leave my skin looking cakey rather gives a smooth and dewy complexion. I use a beauty blender to pat the foundation on over the color corrector. Then use an oval brush to apply the foundation all over the face. Oval brushes give more even coverage, without absorbing as much product as a beauty blender.


Step-3: Fill Eyebrows

Anastasia Beverly Hilla brow powder in the shade ‘Ash Brown‘ to fill and define brows. This is by far the best eyebrow product available which is why I haven’t had luck finding a natural alternative. I personally prefer brow powder over pencil or dipbrow as it gives a fuller and natural look. I love the ILIA brow gel for everyday use, with just a few strokes, my brows look full and natural. Plus, It’s doesn’t flake or stiff.

I use the same foundation to highlight the eyebrows. You can also use a concealer a shade lighter than your skin tone to do this. Apply the foundation beneath your brow line, do the same for the upper part. Then blend the foundation properly with a blending brush


Step-4: Blush

Apply the RMS lip2Cheek in the shade ‘Modest‘ on the cheeks using a beauty blender. This is my favorite blush of all time. The color beautifully blends into my medium complexion without looking overdone and gives a perfectly natural look.


Step-5: Highlighter

I have been using the RMS living luminizer for years now. It’s one of my holy grail products. I use my fingers to apply the cream highlighter above my cheekbones, down the bridge of my nose, on the inner corners of my eyes, and above cupid’s bow.


Step-6: EyeShadow

Aether Beauty Rose quartz palette is beautiful. I like eyeshadows with little bit of shimmer (not glittery), especially during the holiday season. The palette is very pigmented. I would call it a natural and a better alternative to the Urban decay palette. I used the gold shade to fill the lids and the copper color in the crease of the eye. This will add some depth and dimension and will make your eyes pop.


Step-7: Liquid Eyeliner and Eye pencil

Ilia Liquid liner glides in smoothly and allows you to control every move. I believe eyeliner pulls together the eye makeup and gives you a dramatic and glamorous look. I love this natural Kohl pencil to line my waterline. It’s not very long-lasting but  I like that it doesn’t smudge a lot.


Step-8: Mascara

The honest beauty mascara is my new favorite mascara. It comes with a primer on one side and mascara on the other side. It makes my lashes long and does not irritate my sensitive eyes. It also stays on well but comes off easily with makeup remover.


Step-9: Lip Liner and Lipstick

I use this RMS beauty nude lip liner whenever I am going for bold lips. Lip liner will make the lipstick look instantly fuller and defined. It also helps your lipstick to last long. Kosas Lipsticks probably the most pigmented and long-lasting natural lipstick out there. I have them in a ton of color. For this look, I am using Kosas Lipstick in the shade “Electra“. It’s a gorgeous red shade, perfect for the holidays. If you think it’s too bold for your taste. Try the shade ‘Fringe’ it’s more of a marron’is red shade.
