Christmas Makeup Look

Sunday, December 24, 2017


It's Christmas Eve and my final day of blogmas! I cannot believe how quick the past twenty-four days have gone, and how now Christmas is only just around the corner! To round off the extravaganza blogmas has been, I am going to be sharing my Christmas makeup look with you all.

Christmas Day is definitely one of my favourite days for doing makeup. It's a day when usually I would have a lazy, slower morning therefore have plenty of time to do my makeup, and a day when I love to add a bit of glitz to the look. It's Christmas after all!


Starting with the base, I will be using what I always go for, my L'Oreal True Match foundation - still the best foundation I've tried! I pair this with my L'Oreal Touche Magique concealer, this is again a great product from L'Oreal. They both match my skin really well and are long lasting which is exactly what you want on Christmas day - especially when they're set with the Rimmel Stay Matte powder.


Around this time I'll be filling in my brows with my old matte Technic palette - the darkest two shades. My goal for next year is to properly try a brow product (I'm waiting to browse the Anastasia Beverely Hills range in Sephora) but to say this palette was crazy cheap that I got before I was into makeup, I think the shades match my brows perfectly, somehow.


To contour I'm using my Benefit Hoola bronzer; this is an amazing bronzer and definitely deserves the hype it receives! Benefit's High Beam is also my favourite highlighter so I'll definitely be going for that today too, it adds the most gorgeous glow.


Onto the most exciting part - the eyes! I'll honestly end up spending something ridiculous like twenty minutes on eyeshadow because I get really into it. Starting with the Naked Ultimate Basics palette, I'll pop a couple of the shades such as Commando and Faith in the crease to begin the look, then on the lids I'm definitely going to be using my MAC pigments because they are so glitzy and gorgeous!


Using a bit of the NYX glitter primer to prime my lids, I'll be adding a bit of my MAC gold glitter in the centre because it's so pretty and festive. I'll then be darkening up the lid, probably using some shimmer shades from the Naked 2 such as YDK and Busted, two of my favourites right now! Roller Lash from Benefit is my mascara of choice because it really lifts and curls your lashes, it's honestly the best I've tried.


Finally onto the lips - I'm definitely opting for a nude today because although a red would be super festive, I would be a bit worried about it going patchy when having stuff to eat and drink! It's certainly a difficult choice but I'm going to go with my Urban Decay Heat lipstick in Fuel because it's a gorgeous nude shade that I know will compliment the eyes really well.


A huge thank you to everyone who has read my blogmas posts this year! It has been such a rollercoaster but I am so proud of managing to complete it all. What makeup do you think you will go for on Christmas day?
