Blogmas Day 6: Christmas day makeup

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day 6! Today I’m going to be talking through what my Christmas Day makeup will be. Basically on Christmas Day my attire consists of a tank top, leggings, a cardigan/ blanket/ Snuggie, my slippers and either a Santa hat or antlers. So I like to put a little extra into my makeup to balance it out.

Starting with my face, after I go through my morning routine, I start with my foundation which is the L’Oreal True Match super-blendable foundation in the shade N2, Classic Ivory. On top of that I used the matching L’Oreal True Match concealer in N1-2-3, fair/light and for the areas that I want a heavier coverage I used the YADAH Silky Fit Concealer BB Power Brightening in Light Beige, you guys know how much I love this product and I still highly recommend it. And to apply that I use a green, and very dirty Micro Mini Beauty Blender. On top of all that I used the Tarte Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder, it’s just the best finishing powder and I apply that with an e.l.f. Powder Brush. Bronzer wise I put on the bronzer from the e.l.f. blush palette, in Light, top corner of the palette on the left and my blush was from the same palette but the one in the bottom corner of the palette on the right. To apply my bronzer I used the Firma Beauty 103 Angled Contour Brush, I’ve said this before but the Firma brushes I have are my favorite. If you’re looking to buy some new ones look there, the quality is fantastic. And to apply my blush I just used a big fluffy brush. I also did a bit of highlighter and for that I used the lighter side of the Pixi by Petra Beauty Blush Duo in Peach Honey and an e.l.f. fan brush.

As for my eyes, I chose one of my absolute favorites eyeshadows. It’s from the little Too Faced palette on the left and it’s in the middle of the top row, it’s a very sparkly cream shade and it’s absolutely gorgeous. To put that on I used a Bare Escentuals eyeshadow brush and I used my finger to blend it out a little, I was kind of in a rush and didn’t want to dirty another brush. In the inner corner of my eye and under my brows I used White Lie from the Too Faced Smokey Eye palette. For my eyeliner I used the Pixi by Petra  Endless Silky Eye Pen in BlackNoir, come Christmas Day I don’t know if I’ll use this exact eyeliner it depends on my mood but it is one of my favorites. It really is silky and glides on like butter. I’m still using my trusty mascara duo, Maybelline The Falsies Volum Express and Maybelline Great Lash. I use the Falsies first, curl my lashes with my Revlon eyelash curler, then use Great Lash and comb them through at the end so there’s no clumps. Using a little angle brush and Up in Smoke from the Too Faced Smokey Eye palette I fill in my brows. And I topped it all off with the LOC Vibrant Matte Lipstick in Color Me Confident. It’s a gorgeous cranberry shade and one of my favorites for this time of year. Again, I don’t know if this will be the exact red I’ll wear on Christmas. But I do have a post going up later this month on red lipsticks for Christmas that I’m excited about, so keep an eye out for that.

And this is the finished look. It’s been getting colder recently and so far it’s been bloody cold this week, today especially so I’ve broken out the scarves.

That about wraps it up for this post, you guys know how much I like doing these posts, and I have plans to continue them in the future. Maybe I’ll do an NYE look.

Until next time, have fun with your makeup looks and are you guys going fancy or casual this Christmas? 🙂
