SpaceNK Holiday 2013 "All That Glitters" Makeup Tutorial feat. Hourglass Ambient Powders and Mint Green Eyes

Today's feature is a Holiday look that I cannot get enough of! My favorite color is mint green, so I wanted to incorporate my newly discovered NARS eyeliner in Barrow Street. The intense pigmentation and very creamy texture make Barrow Street a top notch pencil. It, however, looks quite 'mod' since it has a cool white base and matte finish. To soften the graphic attitude of Barrow Street, I layered By Terry's Ombré Blackstar eyeshadow stick in Fizzy Jade on top. The mix creates a warmer mint green that is supremely more flattering against the yellow tones in my skin, and it stays vibrant, opaque, and budge-proof for twelve hours! I could wear this bright pastel eye combination every day.

I used three Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders in this tutorial, and they are consistently amazing and worthy of the hype they receive. I already own Diffused and Dim, but Ethereal is perfect as a setting powder over liquid foundation since it is not not as shimmery as Diffused. I used Luminous on the tops of my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose. The champagne pearl provides a soft highlight that is gorgeous in any light. Dim is lovely as a highlighter as well, but Luminous is a more traditional highlighting color! Radiant was used as a bronzer to complete the complexion here, and I love it so much more than I expected to. It is now my Holy Grail bronzer for the winter months since it does not accentuate dryness whatsoever. My best friend Tammy said my skin was positively glowing!

By Terry recently launched a new base product, Terrybly Densiliss, which I featured in the tutorial. The 7 Golden Beige shade is the ideal match for my skin color, so I will be using this foundation for the rest of the winter. I do have to moisturize and prep with primer to achieve the best results, but Terrybly Densiliss is a fantastic serum foundation. I chose to veil the lips in a neutral rosy pink, a 'My Lips But Better' lipstick. The By Terry Rouge Terrybly has such a fabulously comforting, moisturizing formula. I topped with a sheer baby pink lip gloss to add some shine and extra dimension. I did not want to take away from the colorful eyes, which is why I decided to use products that made my lips simply feel healthier and look plumper.

Now, I have not mentioned the brand much here, but Diptyque's legendary candles and fragrances are my obsession of 2013. I am dedicated to the matching Baies (candle) and L'Ombre Dans L'Eau (fragrance), but I decided to branch out and try the Philosykos scent. The sweet fig is balanced by a sensual cedar base. The wood notes are very apparent in the dry down on my skin, but I still have been enjoying it as a winter fragrance. I ordered the Oyedo EdT, a citrus, earlier this week so I'll review all three of these unique scents in a separate review post next month. Diptyque's Eau de Parfums or Eau de Toilettes are a luxurious finishing touch to any makeup look or outfit!

This "All That Glitters" beauty routine is perfect for Holiday gatherings and of course, New Year's Eve festivities! It also photographs beautifully due to the Hourglass powders, so give this brightening neutral bright party look a try!

  7. I know what you mean about Philosykos because it took a few mins to settle into something I really enjoyed! I'd love to own it! As well as the Ambient Lighting Powders! So want them!

  8. I love your necklace in this video.

  9. The SpaceNK product that intrigued me most was the By Terry lipstick. I think this because I prefer a more natural look on the lip. However, I can tend to wear a bolder shade depending on where I am going that day. Thanks for everything!

  10. I think I do love Terrybly Densiliss serum foundation because until now, I don't meet any foundation that works well on my skin. Some foundations clogged my pore so bad so I had break out like crazy :(
    I see on your video, that Terrybly Densiliss looked nice on your skin. It looks having such great coverage and light texture. I hope I can try it out!! And my English isn't too good, if I'm not wrong, I heard this foundation contains serum. I need foundation that also can double up as skin care. Wow, this foundation might be awesome.

    And one product that makes me curious is Dragon's Blood Kit. I don't know how it works but I always trust your review, if u love this product, it's might be an awesome product to try. I read some description of this product in SpaceNK web, and this product may be super perfect for my Mom. She's hard worker, so easy to get stressed. Wrinkles everywhere. So this product may works well to her.

    Also, I love your eyemake up. Mint color for waterliner is a SUPER GREAT and BRILLIANT idea. Usually I only apply black or white (sooo classic). One day I want to try it :)

    Thanks for hold this giveaway. Love your videos and looks so much ♥♥♥
