Festive Makeup Look: Negative Space Eyeliner + Wine Lips

Hello my lovely pumpkins and welcome back!

It’s currently snowing a lot in Montreal, I am so happy cause I love the snow and it puts me directly in a festive, Christmas-y mood. Now the real question is: is it too early to play Christmas songs? Anyways, in today’s post, I am sharing with you my first festive makeup look, I attempted to create a negative space eyeliner, I am pretty happy with the results but it does look a bit messy. I’ve also always loved the combination of brown smokey eyes and wine lips, this is definitely my go-to makeup look, I am not kidding!


Don’t forget to check out my previous post: Born This Way Super Coverage Concealer by Too Faced – Review & Swatches and my previous makeup look: Cool Toned Makeup Look: Purple Smokey Eye + Brown Lips and let’s get into this makeup look!

  • Precision Brow Pencil in shade “Espresso” by NYX


For this look, I used my “I Think I Love You” palette by Colourpop. A gorgeous neutral palette. I wrote a review on it a really long time ago, go can check it out here. To crease the negative space eyeliner, I actually put it a tape near my eye, for the shape.


  • I started this look with the shade “1” all over my crease and above my crease [I know the names are written in the back but I am too lazy to actually search]
  • I applied the shade “2”, on my crease as well but focusing it in my outer V.
  • Then, shade “3”, all over my inner V to the center of my lid.
  • I removed the tape and clean cut was created but I fixed it with concealer.
  • I lined the edge of my cut with a shimmery liquid eyeshadow from NYX. The NYX Lingerie Eye Tint in “Nude To Me”.
  • For my inner corner, I applied my Highlighter.
  • For my lower lash line, as usual, applied the same as my crease so shade 1 and 2, shade 3 in my inner part.
  • For fake lashes, I used the Faux Mink lashes by Ardel
  • For my waterline, I applied the Highliner gel crayon by Marc Jacobs in shade “Brownie”.


  • Primer: Photo Finish Smooth And Blur Primer by Smashbox
  • Foundation: Born This Way foundation by Too Faced
  • Concealer: Born This Way Super Coverage Concealer by Too Faced
  • Setting powder: Master Fix Setting Powder by Maybelline.
  • Contour/Bronzer: Pressed Powder Bronzer by Colourpop in “In it to win it”
  • Highlighter: Weather Collection Highlighting palette by Kylie Cosmetics
  • Blush: Shimmery matching Stix in “Ridiiic” by Fenty Beauty.
  • Setting spray: Rose Water Facial Spray by Mario Badescu.


  • Dose Of Colors Matte Liquid Lipstick in “Extra Saucy” – I have review on this baby here – and you can get yours from Beauty Bay cause I think it’s the perfect red for the holidays!

    Wow! It looks amazing on you! I love how dramatic it looks and truly is a statement! I am a lipstick girl and what a great color for winter to brighten up the mood.

    Love the natural undertones of the eyeshadow with the mix. That’s my favorite red lip color, so fantastic! xx 💋

    I think the negative space look is interesting. I don’t know if I love it, but it is quite the statement look.
