Hey my loves!
Christmas is only 6 days away and I couldn’t be more excited. I’m literally in full blown festive mode, I cannot wait!
Today’s post is a glam makeup look I would wear Christmas Day or to a Christmas work party. Now I know I haven’t gone for a red lip and I kinda wish I did but I’m thinking outside the box and going for something different.
It’s gonna come as a massive surprise but I actually used only Primark foundations for this look. I started with the liquid foundation which had a semi matte finish and cost me like £3 or £4 i think. It’s cheap as chips and has fab coverage. I think used the foundation stick which costs like £4 as a concealer over my blemishes. Again it has fab coverage and i seriously love it.
I concealed my under eyes using the Essence 16 hour concealer which again is cheap yet amazing. It costs £2.50 and the coverage is sooo good.
I set my foundation using the Too Faced Amazing Face powder which I’m nearly out of now, sigh
To contour I used the trusty Benefit Hoola Bronzer which I’ve hit pan on and it makes me want to cry. It’s literally all I use.
Going on to my brows, I used the ABH Dipbrow Pomade as per usual, that part of my routine literally never changes, ever.
For eyeshadow I used the Mac Burgandy Times 9 Palette. Using about 4 shades. The dark Burgandy colour, the dark purple, the black and the shimmery colour. Apologies for my not so fab explanation!
When I use the shimmery shade I always wet my brush for a more pigmented colour.
I applied a coat of the Seventeen long Lash Mascara before applying some Ardell false lashes. I can’t remember the name. They were old ones from my college kit because I rarely wear falsies, I find them impossible to apply. To make it easier I cut them in half, seriously though it’s a game changer!
For lipstick I used the New Look Matte lippy in the shade Mocha.
And voila! My finished look! I hope you like it, make sure to let me know what you think!
