The Christmas Makeup Menu

Tuesday, 22 December 2015


With only 3 more sleeps to Christmas Day, it's time to start planning my makeup menu - because it's just as important as the dinner menu, don't ya know ;-) My makeup is always very simple and I really don't put any effort into it at all when I'm going to school. I usually only take my time applying makeup when I'm going out and that's not that often, so this Christmas I'm going to take a good hour (maybe even more!) out of the day to apply my makeup. I'm going all out with contour, highlight, winged liner and red lips!

For my base, I'll be using a mixture of two products: A bit of the YSL Touche Eclat Foundation mixed with the Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser. The only reason I'm mixing them together is because the YSL foundation is a tad too dark for me but paired with Nars tinted moisturiser it creates the perfect shade. I've dug up two old concealer favourites for the day: L'oreal Lumi Magique concealer pen and the good ol' Collection Lasting Perfection. The L'oreal concealer is amazing for brightening under my eyes and do I even need to discuss the Collection one? I'm sure you all know how amazing it is *insert heart eye emoji*

For contour, I'll be using The Body Shop Honey Bronzer. I like a subtle contour so this is perfect for just that! My favourite blush for the last few months has been Mac 'Warm Soul'. It's a gorgeous dusty rose shade with golden shimmer which gives the most gorgeous glow to the skin.

For brows, I'll be using my Soap & Glory Brow Archery. This is my favourite brow product and I kid you not when I say that I haven't used any other brow products since I discovered it. Another favourite of mine is the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara and their Master kajal kohl liner for tightlining. Seeing as it's Christmas I decided to go for winged liner. I only learned how to do it properly recently so I can't wait to sport it again! I'll be using the Maybelline Master Ink liquid liner in black gold. This eyeliner is perfect for the festive season as it contains gold shimmer! What's more Christmassy than sparkly winged liner?!

And finally for the lips I'll be sproting the classic red lip with my Rimmel Provocalips in 'kiss me you fool' with a red catrice lip liner.

Now bring on the festivities........

What makeup will you be wearing on Christmas Day?

  1. The blush looks a lovely colour! :) x

  2. I still need to decide what I'm wearing in terms of makeup on christmas day! Probably a bronze eye with simple fresh looking base. I love the Body Shop honey bronzer - it's so ace on pale skin :)

  3. You're so right, the makeup menu IS as important as the dinner menu! S&G Brow Archery is my favourite too, it's such a fab product! Maybelline Lash Sensational is great too although I find it can be a little too wet!
