Tiffany & Co. Inspired Holiday Makeup Tutorial

 Next to nothing is more representative of love and the holidays like Tiffany & Co.  Likewise, nothing better represents Tiffany's that it's iconic blue green boxes.  I wanted to create a look that capured that beautful color along with the shimmery Diamond embellishes that the store is so well known for.

Breakfast at Tiffany's has been one of my favorite movies since I was a little girl.  I idolized Audrey Hepburn and her elegant, sophisticated style and beauty.  To this day I watch the movie and still find more to love about the eccentric society girl that Hepburn portrays.

I've visited the Tiffany and Co. store on New York City's Fifth Avenue twice, both of which were around the holiday season.  The storefront windows have whimsical holiday features that read like a storybook, and lare diamond-like displays of holiday lights up and down the block.

I will be visiting New York City TWICE within the next month: once for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and once for a shopping day with my mom and sister.  And a stop at Tiffany's is most definitely always in order!

The Face

Prep, Foundation and Concealer

1. I moisturize my face with Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion and my under eye area with  ELF Illuminating Eye Cream.

2. I prime my skin with NYX Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer and prime my under eye area with ELF Studio Hydrating Under Eye Primer.

3. Using a Beauty Blender, I apply Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation in Light 49 to my entire face.

4. To highlight and conceal I use Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Concealer in Light Warm in a V-shape beneath my eyes, in the middle of my forehead, down the bridge of my nose, on my chin, and on my eye lids.

 Highlight and Set

1. To set everything I take the Real Techniques Setting Brush and place a mixture of the highlight shades Lucid and Lyric from the Kat Von D Shade and Light Contour Palette and place a generous amount over the areas that I highlighted with concealer.

2. I also add a generous amount to my jaw directly below my contour line.  I allow the extra powder to sit on my skin for a few minutes to "bake" before brushing off with a Morphe Brushes G23 Soft Fan Brush.


1. With the Real Techniques Sculpting Brush I take the contour shade Sombre from the Kat Von D palette and contour beneath my cheekbones, underneath my jaw bone, along the hairline on my forehead, down my temples, and alone the parallel sides of the bridge of my nose.

2. After blending I apply the first color from the Morphe Brushes 9B Blush Palette, a soft orange-pink, using a BH Cosmetics blushbrush.


1. Using the same fan brush as earlier, I then apply the Jaclyn Hill and Becca Highlight in Champagne Pop.

2. I apply the first shade of pale white highlighter from the Carli Bybel Palette by BH Cosmetics to the tops of my cheekbones, my forehead just above my brows, and the bridge of my nose.


1. I shape my brows with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Ebony.

2. I fill it in with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo Medium Brown.

3. I set it into place with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel.

The Eyes

Transition Shade, Crease and Lid

1. I take the shade Peach Smoothie by Makeup Geek, a matte light peach beige, with a fluffy blending brush into the crease of my eye and start blending upward.  This is going to be our transition shade.

2. I then apply the shade Deep Skin by Morphe Brushes, a satin soft gold peach with pearl, directly into my crease with a small tapered blending brush using windshield wiper motions.

2. I reapply this shade a couple times to build the color, making sure it blends into my transition shade but stays directly within the crease.

3. Using a flat shadow brush I take the shade
Breakfast At Tiffaneez by Morphe Brushes, a matte blue green, and press it onto the center of my eye lid.  

4. Once the color is as vibrant as I want it to be, I then go back in with a blending brush to make sure there is a nice even line between the crease color and the lid color.  I do not want these two to be very blended together.

5. I then go back in to the Breakfast at Tiffaneez and add just a touch more color to the center of my lid.

Wing and Liner

1. I take a small angled brush to draw on my eye liner using the ColourPop Creme Gel in Kicker, a bright metallic silver.  I get as close to the lash line as possible and press down on the lid to create a long silver line.

2. I wing this out when I reach the outer corner of my eye.

3. Over top the gel liner I apply Wet 'N Wild Fantasy Makers Liquid Liner in Monster's Disco Ball.  This adds even more to that diamond-like shine that is so representative of classic Tiffany's.

Highlight and Lower Lash Line 

1. I then use the color Shimma Shimma by Makeup Geek, a shimmery pale beige, to highlight the inner tear duct with a fluffy blending brush, and a small flatshadow brush to highlight my brow bone just below my eyebrow.

2. I take Breakfast at Tiffaneez again and glide it below my bottom lash line using a small eye defining brush, making sure to blend into the outer corner of my eye to give it a rounded out look.

Mascara and Falsies

1. I apply Urban Decay Perversion Mascara to my top and bottom lashes.

2. For my falsies I choose Ardell Curvy Black Lashes #410 and apply them using the Vegas Nay by Eylure London Lash Glue.

The Lips

1. For my lips I both line and fill in my lips with
ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lip in Donut, a bright pinky peach.

2. I set the entire look with Mario Badescu Facial Spray.
