Welcome to Blogmas Day Five! Today I’m going to be talking about my Christmas day makeup. I did this post last year and really liked it, as I like doing posts of this nature, so I figured I would do another. This look is different than the look last year, but I will post the link to that one down below.
So, starting with my face and after my morning routine, I start with my primer. I don’t always use a primer, but lately I’ve really been loving this one and it’s the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Hydrating Primer. It’s incredible and I highly recommend it. Next I apply my foundation, which is the L’Oreal True Match super-blendable foundation in N2. Then I use my concealers, the first one is the matching L’Oreal True Match concealer in N 1-2-3 and in the places I want a heavier coverage, I use the YADAH Silky Fit Concealer BB Power Brightening in Light Beige and I put that on with a Micro Mini Beauty Blender. To top it all off I use the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder, it’s one of my favorites when it comes to powders and I apply it with an e.l.f. Powder Brush. Then I go to bronzer and for this look I used the Too Faced Warm My Heart bronzer from the Too Faced Best Year Ever makeup collection and the Natural Beauty palette and I used the Firma Beauty 103 Angled Contour Brush to apply that. The blush I used is the Seraphine Botanicals Lychee + Gold Healthy Glow Rose Gold Blush and I just used a big fluffy brush for that. And lastly, for my highlighter I used the Too Faced Dashing Through The Glow highlighter, which is also from the Best Year Ever makeup collection and this is from the Super Fun Night palette. And I applied that with an e.l.f. Fan Brush.
For my eyes, I went with something a little bit different, but it’s a look I really love. This is pretty much all from the Too Faced Super Fun Night palette, I will link the post I did where I reviewed the Too Faced Best Year Ever makeup collection so you can see all of the palettes and colors up close and in depth. For the base I went with Sleighhh Girl, which is kind of a dirty gold and it has a nice shimmer to it, and I applied that with a Bare Escentuals eyeshadow brush. On top of that, primarily in the crease, I used Tipsy, which is a gray shade, but it has some pink flecks that give it a really nice complexity and a great shimmer, and I blended that with a Skone Blending Brush. If you’re in the market for some new brushes, I would recommend Skone. In the inner corner of my eye and under my brows I used Lucky Star, and it’s very light shimmer gold. Eyeliner wise, I used the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper, this is one of my favorite eyeliners and anything Kat Von D is generally amazing. For my mascara I wanted some volume, so I used the Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara in Noir, it’s one of the best. I then curled my lashes using my Revlon eyelash curler and I combed through them to make sure they were smooth. Taking a little angled brush, I filled in my eyebrows with Up In Smoke from the Too Faced Smokey Eye palette. I topped this look off with a red lip. I combined two red lipsticks when I did this, the e.l.f. Moisturizing Lipstick in Red Carpet, then on top of that I dabbed LOC Vibrant Matte Lipstick in Color Me Confident. I don’t know what shade of red I’ll wear on Christmas Day, but I like the way this combo came out.
That about wraps it up for this post, I always like doing these so look out for more in the future.
Until next time, have fun with your Christmas looks and I can’t believe there’s only two weeks until Christmas :).
