Hello and welcome to Christmas Makeup!Today i’m going to be walking you through two of my staple makeup looks for Christmas and the products that I use: Gold eyes with red lips, and burgundy eyes with nude lips. It’s so exciting getting all dressed up for a Christmas meal, shopping day or even Christmas dinner!
- I began this look of course with my “base” makeup.
First of all, I applied my Rimmel lasting finish foundation, in the lightest shade, with my Real Techniques sponge. I mixed a little high beam liquid highlight by Benefit in with the foundation. I then went over spots, blemishes, and under-eye circles with my Collection lasting perfection concealer and dusted a small bit of rimmel stay matte translucent pressed powder. I went over that with my Body shop shimmer beads to add some glimmer, and finally, applied my Benefit dandelion blush.
Gold eyes and red lips:
Now I will go on to talk about the first look of gold eyes and red lips, I have to say that this is my favourite makeup look for Christmas as it looks so pretty and glimmery with traditional Christmas colours.
- To begin with, I covered my eyelids with a base of Maybeline colour tattoo cream eyeshadow in gold, using my fingers to apply it. I then took a warm light brown colour from my sleek palette into the crease to add definition. After that, I patted the Kiko water effect eyeshadow onto the lid with a more yellow toned gold from another palette I own. I then took my Benefit roller lash mascara onto my top lashes and sumptuous Estée Lauder mascara on the lower lashes.
- For my eyebrows, I used a mid brown eyeshadow on an angles brush and sharpened up the edges of my brows, then went over them with clear mascara. I usually don’t do anything with them but I thought since I was going fully festive that they deserved some love.
- To finish off, I used a No7 matte red lipstick which tied it all together!
Burgundy eyes and nude lips:
The next look is burgundy eyes and nudes lips, this is another gorgeous and shimmery look for Christmas events and goes perfectly with burgundy clothing.
- I again covered my eyelids with another Maybeline colour tattoo in burgundy this time, then used a slightly darker warm brown in the crease to add definition. I then packed some loose magnetic eyeshadow from Kiko onto the lid and went in with a shimmery red in the centre. I again used the same mascaras, Roller lash for the upper lashes, and sumptuous for the lower lashes.
- I did the same as before for my eyebrows and then used my Body Shop nude lipstick to compliment the eyes
