As a lover of all things christmas and makeup i couldn't resist to share with you the makeup ill be wearing on christmas day and hopefully it will give you some ideas as to looks that you can try on yourself!
If you cant go all out with you're makeup on christmas day when can you?!
A golden bronze smokey eye and red lip suits everyone! if you think it doesn't suit you its probably because you aren't used to seeing your self with a red lip - i was like that once and now i love a bold lip!
I have Listed below all of the products i have used to achieve this look and hope it helps anyone whos perhaps like me thinking about what look you could opt for this christmas!
Starting off with my complextion...
Firstly i use the Illamasqua satin primer which i have been loving recently, it evens out your skin tone and makes your foundation easy to apply on top.
For foundation im obviously going to use the Charlotte Tilbury magic foundation, in case you live under a rock I LOVE THIS FOUNDATION!!!! its the best foundation i've ever tried it has a lovely buildable coverage, the colour match is spot on and it makes my skin look flawless and thats exactly what i want!
For concealer i always use the Collection lasting perfection concealer under my eyes to brighten up that area which look really flattering. I dont tend to use concealer anywhere else on my face as th foundation i've used covers my blemishes and any redness i may have and its been a while since i've had any spots (Touch Wood)!
For bronzer i use Benefit Hoola bronzer this is a lovely product also if you wish to contour you can with this as its the perfect contour shade as anything thats too orange wont look right as a contour it needs be a grey based bronzer
For blusher i used a MAC Powder Blush in the shade Well Dressed, this is a nice soft pink shade which is what im after with this look as we have a heavy eye and a bold lip
For hilight i've used my MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle this has a nice golden glow and shine which looks lively with the golden/bronze smokey eye and red lip
For my eyebrows i use the Maybelline BrowDrama Sculpting Brow Mascara this is in the shade Dark Brown and its a really good product for keeping your brows in place, they do not budge! it also has a tint to it so it naturallt tints them a dark brown shade and i fill them in with the AVON brow kit in the shade Dark Brown this comes with a wax and with a dark brown pressed powder which is really nice and i love how natural yet polished my brows look with this combo!
For my eyes i used the Naked 3 palette, i used the shade Trick all over the lid i used the colour next to it Nooner for definition and i then kept adding in the darker shades to create intensity and depthh i also added the shades underneath my lower lash line to link everything together!
I used the Loreal Super Liner Ultra Precision liquid liner this comes with a really easy to use wand one of my favourite liquid liners, i then used the MAC Haute & Naughty Lash Mascara and applied the Estee Lauder Pure Color liner to my water line.
For lips i used my favourite red duo, I lined my lips with the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner in the shade Crazy In Love i also filled my lips in with it and i applied the Avon lipstick in the shade Red and its a duo made for each other i love it!
However if you are unsure about a red lip a lovely nude would also look nice i've opten for my Tom Ford Spanish Pink lipstick because if you can't wear a Tom Ford lipstick at christmas when can you!
