Blogmas 24: Festive Make-up Look

This is my current go-to festive make-up. It's suitable for day or night at this time of year, and is really wearable.

So here's my face without anything on it - except moisturiser.

First things first, I primed my face using B. Illuminating Primer. You can check out my review here.

Next up I used Soap and Glory Kick-Ass Concealer in the shade light. It's actually my sisters, but my concealer is running out so I borrowed it. I use it as a highlighter too - running it down my nose, in a star on my forehead, above my cupids bow and on my chin as well as under my eyes.


In the with the foundation. I use my M&S Limited Collection Foundation in nude.

To set everything, I dust my face with E.L.F Pressed Powder in sand.

 I used the E.L.F Pressed Powder in buff as a contour colour. I use it in the hollows of my cheeks, in my temples, around my forehead and under my chin.

Then I go in with my M&S Blush in Cinnamon.

In the inner corners of my eyes I used Estee Lauder shadow in the shade Vanilla. As you can see I'm almost out, so I need to find a cruelty free dupe. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!

All over my lid I used this nude shade from Avon Nocturnal pallet. 

In my crease I used this dark brown shade from my E.L.F pallet.

 And then blended everything out.

All over my lid I pressed this B. Vibrant Eye Shimmer in the shade golden sands.

Here's the finished shadow look.

I ran some more of the dark brown E.L.F colour under my eyes.

I lined my eyes using my E.L.F Liquid Eyeliner in black.

To let my liner dry, I filled in my brows next. I use B. Eyebrow Kit in the shade dark brown.

Next I used my E.L.F Waterproof Volumising and Lengthening Mascara in black.

To finish the look I lined and filled my lips with Barry M Lip Liner in shade number 3, then topped them with Hema Longer Lasting Lipstick in shade number 6.

Here's the finished look. Sorry about the shadow on my chin! I didn't notice it on the small camera screen.
