Hello my lovely readers 🙂 How’s everything going?
As most of you already know I love Christmas and everything related with it, so today I would like to share with you two Christmas themed things:
The first one it’s a YouTube playlist that I’ve created with all my favourite Christmas songs. To be honest I created it on the middle of November,and I’ve been listing it no stop (I’m currently listen it while I’m writing this post). So if you want to hear it click here.
The second thing I want to share with you it’s a Christmas make up tutorial explained step by step, let’s start
First step: Skin
I started by getting my skin ready for make up applying my Nivea moisturising for mixed skin. My lips usually get very dry on Winter that’s why I applied the Avene Cold Cream on my lips. It’s a very moisturising product and it works better that any lip balm that I’ve used before.
I applied my the Bourjois 123 perfect CC cream in the colour light beige all over my face. This CC cream really helps to hide my redness and imperfections without being too heavy. Since I still had some imperfections that haven’t been covered I used a bit of my Deliplus concealer. I also used my Deliplus highlighter to highlight some areas like my under eyes, the cupids bow and the centre of my nose.
Then with the Savvy mineral baked bronzer in the colour radiance I contoured my face applying it on my jaw line, right under my cheeks, on my the top of my front and temples. On my apple cheeks I used this beautiful light pink blush .
Second step: Eyeshadows
For me eyeshadows I used the Diamant 01 eyeshadow from Lancome and the Essence Quattro eyeshadow in the number 01 xoxo. I decided to use sliver and white glittery colours because it reminds me of sparkling snow.
First I applied the Lancome eyeshadow, which has a beautiful silver colour, all over the eyelid and the eye crease.
Then from the Essence palette I used the lighter sliver eyeshadow and I applied it in on the centre of the eyelid. I also applied it beneath my lower lashes only on the nearest part to the tear dot. Finally I applied some white next to the tear dot.
Third step: Eyeliner and Mascara
For my eyeliner I used the Essence waterproof eyeliner pen. This is the way I create the cat eye effect: First I draw a very thin line on my top lashes , I do a flick the side of my eye, pointing towards the end of my eyebrow, and I join it with the previous line.
Finally I applied two coats of mascara on my top and bottom lashes. I used the Yves Rocher sexy pulp mascara, I really like the thick brush of this mascara.
Last step: Red Lips
For my lips I decided to wear the classic red lipstick, because nothing screams Christmas as red lip. Since it’s quite a dark colour I decided to apply it with the small brush you see in the picture.
And this is the final result
I hope you liked this look and if you try it at home you can share you results with me through instagram or twitter, I’d love to see them. Anyway you should always remember that there isn’t a better make up look than you own smile, so try to wear it most of the time.
