How to: Festive Makeup look

We all want to look super chic and festive during the Christmas parties, right? Some of us prefer heavier eye makeup look – some intense smoky eyes or interesting wing eye liner, but of course there are some girls who are planning on rocking bold lip. I did a bit of digging through my stash and came up with two different looks so you have some option.

For smokey eyes I’ve picked some common colors. I think it’s a not a good thing to experiment on a night-out, cause you want to feel confident in your makeup look, so go for some reliable products. Eye primer is super important + you can apply some cream eyeshadow underneath to be sure. I’ve applied MAC Paint Pot in Eclair as a base and then I went for MAC eyeshadow in Club – (I’ve talked about it here) – all over the lid and up to the crease. I wanted this look to be quite eye-catching, so I applied dark burgundy shade from Maybelline quad across lower lash line. Plenty of mascara and you are done!

Being not a big fan of lip products in general I don’t own that much, but I do have one red option that I love. Rimmel Kate Moss #10. If you are planning on wearing a bold lip make sure you used a lip scrub and a lip balm before – super important. I don’t like all that fuss around lip pencils. The only tool I use is a lip brush – you want to be as neat as possible. For eyes go simple. I’ve used my Chanel eye pencil across the lash line smudged out – just for a definition and a bit on the bottom one – just because it suit my eyes, you may skip this step.

For complexion with either look go natural. Nars ‘Laguna’ for a slight contouring job, Tart Amazonian Clay blush in Exposed for neutral cheeks and a bit of MAC ‘Soft and Gentle’ for glow.

Don’t forget to use flash-friendly foundation!

Good luck :)
