MY CHRISTMAS DAY MAKEUP 2015

26 December 2015



This Christmas I decided to go for a natural makeup look, using some liquid black liner and one of my favourite lip products, the Topshop Sheer Lips in 'Chuck.  Read on to find out what products I used to create my makeup look (and hooray! I finally got a decent camera!)

BASE
  • Rimmel Lasting Finish Nude Foundation in Ivory. My current go-to foundation, which provides medium coverage and lasts all day.  This provides a satin finish and looks so natural on the skin.
  • Rimmel Lasting Finish Concealer in 010 Porcelain. This concealer is a recent discovery of mine, and I've been pretty impressed with its pigmentation.  It's great for concealing under-eye dark circles as well as blemishes.
  • MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in NW20. I bought this last summer and it's been a firm favourite of mine.  It adds some extra coverage and helps my makeup last longer.
  • KIKO Rebel Romantic Perfecting Bronzer in Light. This bronzer is also one of my current favourites - it's very pigmented though, so a light hand is required!
  • Benefit Rockateur Blush. I love Benefit's Rockateur blush when I'm going for a natural, dewy look.
  • Topshop Glow Stick in Play Up. This cream highlight changed my (makeup) life earlier this year and converted me into a highlight-lover.  It's so easy to use and adds a lovely, natural glow to the skin.
EYES
  • MAC Eyeshadows in All That Glitters and Woodwinked. All That Glitters and Woodwinked are two eyeshadows from MAC that I would highly recommend!  They are by far my most-used MAC eyeshadows and look beautiful blended together.
  • L'Oreal Superliner Perfect Slim. This is an easy-to-use liquid liner, which is great for anyone who isn't normally great at applying liquid liner.  It's long-lasting and incredibly pigmented.
  • Lancome Grandiose Mascara. This luxurious mascara from Lancome gives lashes a gorgeous fanned-out look, as well as adding volume and length to your lashes.
  • Rimmel Brow This Way in Blonde. This was another recent purchase for me.  I'd never tried a brow gel before, and I wish I had done sooner!  This one is so easy to use and sets my brows nicely. 
LIPS
  • Topshop Sheer Lips in Chuck. I love wearing this lipstick, especially during the cold, winter months as it feels so moisturising, plus it adds a lovely, subtle berry shade to the lips!
