Christmas Day Makeup Look



Hi everyone,

For Christmas Day I like to do something a bit extra with my makeup and maybe add a little sparkle here and there. This look is perfect if you’re going to a party or just spending the day with family and it’s quite a quick and easy one as well.


Face

So as usual I start off with the Maxfactor FaceFinity Primer before following with the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector which I just blend in with my fingers. For foundation I have been using Nars Sheer Glow a lot recently and the Real Techniques Buffing brush to get a really flawless and even finish. I’m actually liking Sheer Glow more than Double Wear at the moment which is unusual for me. I like that it isn’t as matte but still stays in place all day.


Eyes

Moving on to the eye makeup, I start off with the Urban Decay Naked palette and apply Sin all over the eye lid. To add some definition I then use Toasted and a little bit of Hustle from the same palette in the crease and blend out. Now for the fun part! It’s not Christmas without some glitter and sparkle so I use The Body Shop Rollerball and apply the glitter all over the eye lid for a really festive finish. My favourite liquid eyeliner at the moment is The L’oréal Superliner which I use on my top lash line and then the Bourjois Kohl and Contour on my water line. For mascara, at the moment I am using the Clinique Bottom Lash mascara and Lancôme Hypnôse Drama which is one of my all-time favourites.


Face

After finishing my eye makeup, I go back to the base and use Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer for brightening under the eyes. I then use another firm favourite of mine which is the Estée Lauder Double Wear concealer to hide any redness and blemishes. To set all this in place I apply the Rimmel Stay Matte powder and Benefit’s One Hot Minute bronzer over the top. I really like this bronzer as it gives a lovely subtle glow to my skin but isn’t too over the top. To finish the look I add some Benefit Gimme Brow to give my brows some definition and frame my face more.


Cheeks

Nars Lustre is a recent rediscovery of mine and is a gorgeous golden blush. I add this to the apples of my cheeks before going in with the Topshop highlighter in Sunbeam which compliments the blusher really well. It looks quite scary in the pan but blends beautifully to give a lovely golden shimmer.


Lips

I didn’t put a lip gloss or lipstick on in the photos but I think I would wear something natural with this look, maybe with a slight pink tint to it. As the eyes are a pink / purple shade I think something like red would clash too much but a neutral tone would look lovely.


Which makeup will you be wearing on Christmas Day? Do you like to do something a little different for the festive season?

Thanks for reading,

Hannah xx

    1. Thank you, I'm glad you like it :) if I'm going for more of a dramatic eye look I tend to stick to a more neutral lip x
