A Christmas Make Up Look

My Christmas holidays officially began this afternoon and I can't wait to have a week off to relax, eat and sleep! In the midst of wrapping presents and making homemade soup for the big day tomorrow, I had a play around with some festive make up...


When I think of Christmas make up, the first thing that comes to mind is glitter. The second is red lipstick. So with this in mind I've teamed up a gold eye with a red (ish) lip - but a slightly toned-down version.

Eyes: For my eyes, it's got to be a MAC shadow combo. All over my lid is 'Ricepaper', a light, golden beige colour with a frost finish, with 'Amber Lights', a copper brown shade with a frost finish, worked into my crease and outer corner. I wouldn't usually combine two frost finishes, to be honest, but I really love the subtle, gold, glittery effect it gives.

Cheeks: I don't think a day goes by that I don't wear this product and if any day demands a highlighter then it's Christmas day! MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle is a face powder with a frosty, shimmery finish that can be used as a highlighter almost anywhere. I like to use this on my cheekbones and under my brows to add a bit of sparkle.

Lips: I rarely wear lipstick anymore because of my brace (it's clear so a lippy stain on it would stick out like a sore thumb!) But I found this offering by Rimmel, aptly named 'A Drop of Sherry', stuffed to the back up of my makeup drawer and love it as it's long lasting and not too in-your-face.



What make-up look will you be opting for tomorrow? Let me know!
