If you haven’t got consumed already by the nerve-racking Christmas fever, don’t worry, there is still time for you to stress over gifts and plans. Makeup however, tends to brighten up my day; so go ahead and slap some confidence and glitter on your face and try not to get caught up in the materialistic side of the holidays.
I did think about not doing the classic gold eye – red lip but who was I kidding? What says Christmas better than this? Nothing, yeah, I know.

I attempted baking for this look and I am still debating whether I like it on myself. After applying the concealer, I took my beauty blender and caked on a very generous amount of the Make Up For Ever Translucent Powder under my eyes in the shape of a big triangle and left it there for around 10-15 minutes. I brushed it off and there you have it, basic baking for your inner housewife.
Rimmel London Clear Complexion Clarifying Powder (applied with the Real Techniques Buffing Brush)
H&M Bronzer (discontinued)
Max Factor Creme Puff Blush, Gorgeous Berries 30
Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips, Vegas Trip
Rimmel London Eye Brow Pencil, Dark Brown
Urban Decay Naked Original Palette: Sin on the lid blended with Buck in the crease; then, I darkened the crease with a combination of Half Baked and Smog. Just go nuts with the golds. Finally, I added Virgin in the inner corners and on the brow bones. (I only used MAC’s 217 brush for the eyes)
And that’s a wrap.
I hope you’ll have many hot chocs, mince pies and mulled wine. More is more. Treat yo’self!
P.S.: Please do let me know what you would want to see next on my blog! I’m pretty much open to anything! Thanks! x
