Christmas Day will be in exactly 10 days and the excitement level is raising. If you're anything like me you're probably still doing your Christmas shopping, planning all the cooking and food preparation, wrapping gifts, sorting out the outfit, etc. Basically running like a mad woman :)
But one thing that it doesn't stress me out is my makeup for the Christmas time, I know it will be simple and quick because who wants to spend a long time getting ready instead of enjoying the magical day, but still pretty because I want to look glammed up on the day.
For my Christmas Day makeup I choose golden eyes and red, sparkly, metallic lips. Classic but with a little twist. Simple but effective.
Primer: I want my makeup to stay on all day so primer is a must, I really like the Hylamide HA Blur for blurring my pores without being heavy and greasy and making my makeup last longer.
Foundation: L'Oreal True Match, in shade 2N Vanilla, is a great foundation when you want a decent coverage but without looking cakey or heavy. This foundation has a beautiful naturally luminous finish and applied over primer and set with powder it lasts all day long on my skin.
Concealer: to be sure I look rested I use a bit of Pixi Corrector to cancel out any darkness under my eye and to highlight it further I apply the Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer which is very lightweight and nicely illuminating.
Powder: to set my concealer and foundation I use RCMA No Colour Powder which is absolutely amazing, it's undetectable on the skin yet it makes my makeup last much longer and helps to keep the shine at bay. I like to dust lightly Hourglass Surreal Light Finishing Powder across my face to add a bit of 'glow from within' look to my skin.
Bronzer: my current obsession, Surreal Bronze Light from the Hourglass palette.
Blush: another product I can't get enough of it and use it almost with every makeup look is the Surreal Glow blush from the Hourglass palette.
Highlighter: Surreal Strobe Light from the Hourglass palette, it's a very subtle highlighter but perfect for a daytime, especially together with all the other 'glowy' powders I used.
Primer: I just used some concealer set with a bit of powder.
Eyeshadows: Makeup Geek White Lies, matte white, to highlight the brow bone, Tiki Hut as a crease shade, Cocoa Bear to deepen the crease and outer corner, Corrupt, black matte, to line my upper lashes.
Colourpop Get Lucky, applied with my finger for the best colour payoff, from the inner corner to 1/3 of my lid and 8 Track, applied with my finger, on the outer part of the lid. I made sure both colours blend into each other seamlessly.
Eye pencil: Makeup Geek Full Spectrum Eye Pencil in Espresso to line my water line and Makeup Forever Black Pencil to tight line my upper lid for my lashes to look fuller.
Mascara: Bourjois Volume Reveal in Black.
False lashes: Eylure Vegas Nay in Easy Elegance.
Lip liner: Essence Lipliner in shade 08 Red Blush.
Lipstick: Colourpop Ultra Metallic Lips in Kween, beautiful deep red with golden metallic sheen and sparkle, it doesn't last all day but it's very comfortable on the lips and easy to re-apply it.
And this is the finished look :)
