Christmas Eve Makeup


So, the last day of Blogmas is finally here. This brings with it some mixed feelings. I will be sad to leave every day blogging behind me but at the same time it means that it is CHRISTMAS! So I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and I hope that you have an amazing day! For today’s post I am going to share my Christmas makeup look from our Christmas Eve dinner.

I start off using the Essence …all I need Concealer Palette which has 5 different colours, all for something different. The NYX Stay Matte but not Flat foundation is just amazing and I really love the way it makes my skin look. After that I always use my Essence All About Matt Powder.


Next I always do my blush. Today I tried out my Essence Winter Wonderful blush for the first time in 01 Winter Kissed Cheeks. How gorgeous is it?! After that I use the Wet and Wild bronzer in E739 Ticket to Brazil. It is such a stunning colour but I don’t use too much of it as I am still a bit scared of it to be honest!


I made an impulse buy and bought the Catrice Eyebrow Filler in number 10. I actually quite like it! Also, can we please just ignore that my eyebrows are not looking their best at the moment haha! For my eyes I have been wearing this palette throughout December as it is Christmas! The Essence Little X-Mas Factory Collection has stunning colours and I have used all of them, except the green. I do not know if I am that brave yet!


I have chosen my Rimmel Extra 3D Lash mascara because it just lengthens my lashes and also spaces them out nicely. For my eyes I also chose to try out the gold liquid liner from the Essence Little X-Mas Factory Collection. It is absolutely gorgeous!


I lined my lips using the Essence Lipliner in 13 Transparent. I love this because it can be used for any of the lipsticks that I own. And to fill in my lips I used a Mac Matte Lipstick in the shade Evening Rendezvous. It is such a gorgeous colour!



Here is the final look! Shoutout to my dad who took this photo and who did not complain when I asked him to take about 20 different ones haha!


So that is my Christmas makeup look! Did you wear a special Christmas makeup look for Christmas Eve dinner or Christmas lunch? Let me know in the comments below!
