The Edit | The Christmas Face

As we all recover from the food coma that happened on Christmas Day I thought I would share what makeup I ended up wearing. I wanted to go for something simple that was long wearing so I wouldn't have to think about touching up.
The Edit | The Christmas Face
Bourjois Radiance Reveal Healthy Mix
I started off by using one of my favourite primers which is the Rimmel Stay Matte Primer, whenever I want something to be long wearing I use this. For foundation I used another favourite in the Bourjois Radiance Reveal Healthy Mix , I love how this just helps my skin to look glowy whilst packing a good amount of coverage. Where needed I applied a few dabs of the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer to cover any redness the foundation missed. To set everything in place I used the Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder to keep the shine at bay.
The Body Shop Honey Bronzer
 For cheeks I added a little colour with The Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzer to warm the face up a little. For blush I went with my favourite blush which is NARS Deep Throat as it adds the perfect pinky sheen to the cheeks. For brows i'm still loving the Soap & Glory Brow Archery Pencil as it's so quick to use and looks natural.
Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette
For eyes I started with a base of MAC Groundwork paint pot which is a lovely brown shade that has a sheen to it. Next I reached for my Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette and used the golden shade on the bottom row over the top to create a gold smokey eye. Then I added a few coats of the Soap & Glory Thick & Fast Mascara to finish it all off.
Revlon Cherries In The Snow Lipstick
Finally for lips I started with applying the Urban Decay Lip Liner in Mrs Mia Wallace as a base so that my lipsticks would last longer. The I did a few coats of the Revlon Cherries In The Snow lipstick which is the perfect cherry red shade. I found this combination wore fairly well even whilst eating and drinking.

So that was the makeup I went for on Christmas Day. It may seem like a lot but after wearing this combination of products a few times I managed to get ready pretty fast. Do you wear makeup on Christmas Day? If so what products did you reach for?

  1. Cherries in the Snow is a perfect colour for Christmas I wore it as well. It is one of my favourite lipsticks for this time of year. x
