Marzipan medley

I love Christmas and what sweeter than sweets and holiday chocolates. I ate chocolate, chocolate liqueurs, marzipan, plum cakes with silver frosting and so many more things in these few days to celebrate my true spirit of christmas and my sweet tooth.

This tutorial is inspired from lovely colors of marzipan. I used my BH Cosmetics 88 Tropical Shimmer Palette which I bought from here. These eyeshadows are so incredibly pigmented and come in a vast array of colors, tropical colors in this palette though. These shimmers are so amazing and not using them is a sin LOL.

Lets see what to do........


  • Clinique Superbalanced Makeup
  • Shiseido Natural Finish Cream Concealer
  • Clinique Blended Face Powder
  • Chanel Tweed Fuchsia to create a pop of pink on the cheeks
  • Lancome L'Absolue Rouge in Absolute Rouge applied as lipstain for 'cherry' on the cake look.
  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance
  • BH Cosmetics 88 Tropical Shimmer palette
  • Clarins Instant Definition Mascara
  • Clinique Quick Liner for eyes in Really Black
I have kept the color vibrant by applying them in color blocks and blending just edges of the block. Luckily the images are self explanatory and shall serve as a purpose for deciphering the look without much discussion.

More images and explanations.

The white triangles are the colors that were used for making this look. I purposely shot this palette on lowest exposure to enable capturing color as the shimmer is to overrated and flash makes things difficult at times.

The look,
I did two looks, one with just mascara and another with false lashes to show you tow different options.

1. With Clarins Instant Definition Mascara reviewed here

After using Uroparis no.53 lashes.

Its Christmas time and holidays begin. More such looks to come on the platter.

Till then,
