A Holiday Look: Inspired by Dianna Agron

Loosely inspired, that is.

Girl is gorgeous. I ain't about Glee, but Dianna Agron has killer taste in music and her fashion and makeup looks are always on point. I wanted to do a holiday look inspired by this photo, even though I don't have pretty copper glitters to really make it sing. But, I have fluttery ESQIDO mink lashes**. So we'll see what we can do.

Since I couldn't find a photo of this look with her eyes open - ARTISTIC LICENSE TIME. (Really, all I took from the above look was GLITTER, bronze, and a soft lip).
Lips: MAC Pander Me + Maybelline Intoxicating Spice Color Elixir.
These are the Esqido Voila lashes** (reviewed here, with application tips). Currently, Esqido is holding a giveaway (until Dec. 12) to launch their new Holiday Lash Guide. I tried it out and it matched me to two pairs I already love, so I think it's pretty handy, ha!
On eyes: Marc Jacobs The Enigma palette (Shades 1 & 6), Fyrinnae Fire Opal and a Shu Uemura gold glitter (from the Mint &Vanilla palette) over NARS primer, and Esqido Voila lashes**.
I tried to keep the lip more neutral, because if you're going to eat food (and trust me, I will), you don't want it to be too obvious that your lipstick has floated away with the hors d'oeuvres. I layered Maybelline Intoxicating Spice over MAC Pander Me just to soften the matte finish; I didn't want something super glossy to compete with the glittery eyes.
Base is Dior Nude BB Cream (02) and Sephora Sculpting Disc.*
These earrings are Nadri; I wore them on my wedding day. I don't really have any holiday parties to attend, but I like to dress up on Christmas, anyway, so I may pull this look out on the day.

What are your holiday plans? Do you have a look ready?
