The Christmas Look 2015

Monday, 28 December 2015

MERRRY CHRISTMAS. I put this post up quite late, I know but I was without a laptop for a while but I am back. Before I continue, I hope you all had an amazing day! With trying to incorporate the Christmas colours into the makeup menu and changing ways that I apply my makeup, I thought I'd show you what I wore on my face on Christmas Day!!!

Today I thought I'd start with my skincare until the application of my lipstick. To wash the face, I use the Clinique Liquid Facial Soap, I have had this for a couple of weeks and I must say it works wonders. It is so soft and gentle without irritating the skin. As this is part of the 3 step routine, I use the Clarifying Lotion with a cotton ball and apply it all over my face/throat. Last but not least, I use the Clinique Moisturising Gel which is very lightweight. You'd think after all this, my face would feel very heavy but it doesn't. As I have been spoken in the past about the Vitamin E Toning Mist Review, I spray a couple of this on my face.

After all that commotion with the face, I let everything sink in for approximately 10 minutes before moving on to my makeup. I don't use a primer, I know that's bad but I don't. I mix two foundations together which is the Clinique Even Better Foundation and the Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer. I only to do this as I find that it provides a better, glowy finish to my skin. To apply this on the face, I use the Body Shop Pointed Foundation Brush. To blend this in, I use the Real Techniques Miracle Sponge damp.

To conceal those under eyes as we have been up late wrapping loads of presents, I have been using the LA Pro Girl Concealer, I put on a lot around my mouth, nose and any blemishes. To set my foundation, I set my face with the MAC Blot Pressed Powder. Moving on to the eyes, I used this eyeshadow book with the dark brown shimmery eyeshadow all over my eyes. To brighten up the inner corner, I used MAC LLAMA with a small brush. As I love winged liner, I used to MUA Matte Black Liquid Liner which I have spoken about in My Favourite Liquid Liner Post.

To coat my lashes, I used the Clinique High Impact Mascara by applying 2-3 coats on each eye both bottom and top lashes. This mascara doesn't clump my lashes and creates that 'false eyelashes' effect.

To lightly contour my face, I used a darker powder around my forehead and cheekbones. I didn't apply blush but I highlighted down the bridge of my nose, cupid's bow, cheekbones. To do this, I use the Revlon Highlighting Palette in Bronze Glow with the Real Techniques Contour Brush.

Before applying my makeup, I put on Carmex on my lips so that when it does come to applying on lipstick, they wouldn't dry out. I outlined my lips with a MAC lip liner in VINO and applied the Clinique Pop Lip Colour in Nude Pop.

Yes, there are a lot of Clinique products in this post but that is just because I love Clinique not that I am sponsored by them or anything like that.

Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year.
