Easy Christmas Day / Party Makeup

Saturday, December 20, 2014

Hello again gorgeous! 

As I said on my previous post (click here if you haven't read it yet!), I put together the perfect makeup look for the upcoming holidays and all of your Christmas parties! 
I took inspiration from Pixiwoos latest tutorial, using different products to achieve a similar look - proving you don't have to have all of those expensive things to create beautiful makeup!
I also give you 6 different lip colors (10, if you count each lip product individually!), so you can pick and choose which ever you like best! 

I hope you enjoy!

Face: I'm a big believer that creating a great base for you look is the key for any makeup look. On that note, the Urban Decay Naked Skin foundation gives you the right amount of coverage, but it's still lightweight and seamless. Also, a great concealer is key, since it gives some extra coverage only where needed (under the eyes and on any spots, redness and scaring). The Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer is one of the best concealers out there.  After all of this work, you want your face makeup to last, so powdering it is essential, specially if you tend to get oily. With a light hand, dust the Rimmel  Stay Matte powder (in Transparent - no more color added!) on the areas where you get oily :)
To add some color and dimension back to your face, warm up your skin with a bronzer, like this one from H&M and give your cheeks a rosy glow with this ADORABLE heart blush from Too Faced.

Eyes: If you want something easy that will define your eyes and make them shine, this eye makeup is for you! Starting off with the brows, give them a good comb, then fill in any sparse areas and gaps with this pencil from Maybelline (2 shades darker than your hair if you have light hair and 2 shades lighter than your hair if you have dark hair!). This is surely not the time to experiment with your brows! Just make them look neat and polished :) Finish them off by running this Maybelline brow gel through them, so they stay in place all night long. 
Moving on to the eyes, it couldn't be simpler! Apply an eyeshadow pencil in a soft pink shimmery color (like this one from H&M) on your lid, inner corner and inner third of your lower lash line, and softly blend it with your finger, for a smoother look. Then apply heeps of mascara! I really love the Clinique High Impact mascara - it gives volume and length to your lashes, even if you dont have a ton! Apply a thin layer of it on your lower lashes, to define your eyes even more. If you want some extra glam and humf , this pair of volumizing false lashes from Eylure will complete your eye look :)

Lips: The fun part! You can wear any kind of lipstick or lip gloss with this neutral look! All the lippies I chose are from NYX! You can use the combos I put together or wear any of the following lip products by themselves, if you want a more subtle or matte look :)
Combo 1 - Matte Lipstick in Bloody Mary with Butter Gloss in Cherry Pie - perfect blue-toned, cranberry red lip combo! 
Combo 2 - Matte Lipstick in Perfect Red with Butter Gloss in Red Velvet - GORGEOUS deep vibrant red lip combo - a Christmas classic! 
Color 3 -  Soft Matte Lip Cream in Monte Carlo - matte deep cranberry red
Color 4 - Soft Matte Lip Cream in Amsterdam - matte pure red (the feels!) 
Combo 5 - Matte Lipstick in Tea Rose with Butter Gloss in Vanilla Cream Pie - if red is not your thing, this is a beautiful mauve-pink lip combo that will perfectly suit this makeup!
Combo 6 - Matte Lipstick in Whipped Caviar with Butter Gloss in Crème Brulee - a glossy version of the so talked about "Kylie Jenner Lip" :p

And that's it! That's my personal take on Pixiwoo's latest Christmas makeup! I hope you enjoyed! 
Let me know on the comments bellow what makeup you plan on wearing for Christmas and also, tell me which lip color/combo you prefer! If you have any other colors or combos, let me know as well!!

Have a wonderful day! Happy holidays!!
