Christmas Make-Up!

Hello! I'm a lot better now, I was ill all weekend and couldn't post, and I didn't want to wait until Sunday to write another post, so I thought that I would do one today!

This is the make up that I will be wearing on Christmas day!

The Base:

The Porefessional by Benefit is my favourite primer, it makes my foundation blend in so much smoother! I just use my fingers to blend it all over my face, mostly concentrating on my nose and cheeks.

For foundation ,I'm using the Benefit 'Hello Flawless'. This is quite a light foundation, it doesn't feel cakey or heavy on my skin and gives just the right amount of coverage! I use the shade 'I'm Pure 4 Sure-Ivory', and I blend it in using my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush, which I love!

For concealer, I'm using the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer in the shade no. 2 'Cool Medium', which is a bit dark for my skin. i don't like this concealer very much, it feels a bit cakey on my skin, so I think I'll be buying a new concealer soon!  

I'm using the Rimmel Stay Matte powder (001 Translucent) to set all of my make up, and I'm just using a regular powder brush to apply it! 


To contour, I used the Hoola bronzer from my Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot Palette and used a Real Techniques Blush Brush. And for blush, I used Coralista, and used the same blush brush to apply that. For a highlighter, I used the mini 'Watts Up' that came with the palette and applied it to the tops of my cheekbones.


For my eyeshadow, I started off by using the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Pink-Gold, and put it all over my lid. Then I took my Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, and used the shade 'Nooner' and applied it to my crease, and blended it out with my MAC 217 blending brush. Then I took 'Factory' and put that in the outer corner, and blended it well with the same blending brush. I then took a mixture of 'Dust' and 'Burnout' and put them all over the lid. Finally, I took 'Strange' and applied it to my inner corner. 

I used my Maybelline Master Precise liquid eyeliner pen to draw a thin line along my lashline, and then a small wing. I got the wing right first time earlier when I was practising this, I was so proud of myself!

For mascara, I used my Benefit 'They're Real'! I use this mascara everyday, it makes my tiny, wispy lashes turn into long, thick and curled ones! My make up never looks properly finished unless I'm wearing mascara!


For my lips, I used the Rimmel Apocalips in the shade 'Nova'. This is what I would class as a 'bright lip' as I don't usually wear colours as bright as that, but Christmas is an exception!

I hope you enjoyed this post! I'm sorry about the photo quality, my camera lens isn't very good, but I'm hoping to buy a better lens or find another alternative to using this camera soon!

I hope you all have an amazing Christmas, and get everything you want!
See you soon! xxx
