Christmas Eve Party Makeup

I cannot believe I’m sat here writing up my Christmas Eve post. This past week seems to have absolutely flown by in merely a heartbeat and considering what day it is I thought it’d be extremely fitting to do a Christmas Eve makeup look. I’ve been really ill for the past couple of weeks and I’ve been wearing very little makeup so I chose not to put on any foundation, however if I was using this look for a party then I’d use my trusty Estee Lauder double wear foundation as it lasts so well and doesn’t cake on the skin.

For my eyes I wanted to use my mac pigment in the shade tan as when I think of Christmas I always think of gorgeous bronze and gold makeup looks. It’s difficult to express how much I love this product. I apply it with a slightly damp brush and it looks absolutely stunning. I then blended a couple of brown Too Faced eye shadows into my crease and finished the look with a tiny bit of eyeliner. For mascara I used my Benefit Roller Lash and Rimmel’s Wonder’full  Mascara with argan oil over the top as a second coating.

As for the lips; well it’s Christmas so of course a red lip had to be included. I was slightly cheeky and opened my present from my boyfriend’s parents early and I gratefully received this beauty from Rimmel in the shade best of the best. It’s such a lovely bright red colour which I think goes perfectly with this look and it’s really moisturising on the lips.

Overall this look is something I’ll be wearing throughout 2016 and not just at Christmas. I would also like to wish you all a massive Happy Christmas if you celebrate and if you don’t then I hope tomorrow is lovely for you too!

Thank you for reading, and as always…
Until next time, Nicole x
