Its Christmas Eve…wooooo! Im so excited, I feel like a little kid again. Its 1pm and I have already baked Cookie Dough Cupcakes, Cookies & Chocolate Sanata Hat Cupcakes. Last night I made mince pies so im all baked out. I wrapped all my presents last week so now im ready to go. On Christmas day we always start off in pjs & oneises then we get dressed. I usually put a dress or something on then love doing my makeup. I know some people don’t really bother but I love making an effort on Christmas day.
For my base I do my usual primer, concealer and med-full coverage foundation and use my Mac Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation to give me the flawless finish. Next I use Elfs Blush &Bronzer Kit in “ST Lucia” which has a gorgeous light pink shimmer blush and a pretty bronzer which I use to contour. Then I apply my favourite highlighter Makeup Revolutions Heart Highlighter which is just stunning and gives my cheekbones a lovely glow.
My favourite part of my makeup routine is my eyes. I use my Eylure Brow Kit to fill in my brows then I apply eyeshadow. My favourite which i will be using on Christmas Day is NYX “Boost” eyeshadow which is a gorgeous bronze and it is really pigmented. I apply this all over my lid then use a matte brown/purple in the crease and blend them in to create a subtle smokey eye. On the bottom lash line I use the bronze on the outer corner then in the inner corner I use a very light nude shade to highlight that area and make my eyes appear wider.
I love to apply false lashes. Iv been using false lashes for around 6 years now so I have the hang of applying them so it is natural to me. If you don’t like false lashes then just use mascara. I always apply a thin layer of mascara, let it dry then apply my lashes. A lot of people use tweezers but I just use my fingers and have no problems. Ardell & Red Cherry lashes are my favourite.
I haven’t decided if I want a dark lip or even just a pink lipgloss. But this Rimmel Apocalips is such a gorgeous deep purple/berry shade. Also nails im loving the deep red/burgundy which gold glitter. I think it looks amazing for the Christmas touch.
