Christmas makeup look

Well hello to you my reader chums! The week before Christmas has finally arrived; with the glitzy Christmas trees, wrapped up gifts and classic carols on repeat, I wanted to share my favourite festive makeup look. As this week, there will be many family dos, work events and gal pal meet ups, I hope this makeup look gives you a little inspiration.

Here's the products I use for my Christmas makeup look...

Face products

After my morning skincare routine, I applied L'oreal's 'infallible primer' to ensure my makeup lasted all day long. For foundation, I mixed two of Revlon's colour stay shades together (110 and 180) as I find that's the most suited colour for my skin. I used Rimmel's 'wake me up concealer' to brighten up under the eyes and the 'Naked' concealer by Urban Decay to cover any obvious blemishes. To set, Rimmel's trusty 'stay matte' powder does the trick.

Contour and highlight 

Even though Christmas time is more about rosy cheeks, I prefer to rock the bronzed look. My favourite and go to for any occasion is Benefit's 'Hoola bronzer' as it's the perfect shade to achieve those desired chiselled cheekbones. The highlighting palette is Sleek's 'Cleopatra' where I used the two bottom shades to get that golden festive sparkle.

Eye brows and shadows 

My brows are a medium colour brown that I find Sleek's eye brow kit in 'light' is the perfect shade. Its wax holds the colour pigment to my brows all day long that I couldn't fault it. On the eyes I used a cream eye shadow from Revlon and Tarte's 'tartelette in the bloom palette'. I applied 'flower child' as a base and run 'smart pants' through the crease of the eye. I then took 'funny girl' all over the lid and inner corner. To darken the eye, I used a blend of 'rebel' and 'leader' on the outer corners as well as taking it under the eye. These two shades have a gorgeous red undertone that gives the eyes that extra festive flair. I used Kat Von D's liquid liner and coated my lashes with Maybelline's 'Lash sensational'.

Lips

No Christmas look is complete without a red lip and my go to has to be the classic Mac's 'Russian Red'. With its matte formulation, long-lasting power and medium red shade, it's the perfect colour for a Christmas celebration.
