Ahhhhh…I can’t believe Christmas is one week away! Time is flying so fast and the end of the year is quickly approaching. 2016 will be gone in a flash. But as the year is winding down, the holiday season is still very much in full gear. I don’t know about you, but I have quite a few holiday gatherings coming up within the next two weeks and I like my makeup to look festive and chic. A bold red lip captures the Christmas vibe both effortlessly and timelessly.
Since I am not someone who tends to pile on the eye makeup (I usually keep mine quite simple focusing on really defined lashes), I heavily rely on lipstick to pull my look together.
I start out with my Hangover Rx primer from Too Faced and then follow it with my Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation in the shade 5.75. Next, I’ll use my NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard to cover up blemishes and dark areas and follow that with my Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder to set everything in place. I’ll typically define my cheek bones with my Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow bronzer and highlighter. I then use the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Cream Eye shadow in Rose Gold all over my lids and the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette color in Caramel in the crease. I finish the eyes off with multiple coats of mascara. Here I used the NARS Audacious mascara to really lift and volumize my lashes.
Last but not least, I finish off the look with the Stila Stay all day liquid lipstick in the color Beso. I love these lipsticks because they do not budge one bit even through the heavy eating and drinking at holiday parties.
And that completes this festive, classic, and easy holiday look that would be perfect at any holiday event. Below is a list of all products I used for this look.
I hope you enjoyed this classic holiday makeup look and don’t forget to check out my previous posts!
Until next time,
