A few weeks ago I reviewed the limited edition Sleek Goodnight Sweetheart i-Divine eye shadow palette (here), and I said that I would show you a look using the palette, which will be ideal to recreate over Christmas (well, not in those exact words but you know what I mean).
Some people prefer to do their eye makeup before applying the rest of their face (foundation etc.), particularly if it’s a look involving lots of shimmer. However, I still generally begin applying my makeup with foundation and concealer, before powder, bronzer, blush and highlight; before brows and eyes. So, that all being said, here’s an idea for your Christmas makeup –
For my base, I begin with the Rimmel Insta Flawless (review here), before layering the Bobbi Brown foundation stick in warm beige over the top. For concealer I use a mixture of the Bourjois Radiance Reveal in 01 to brighten under the eyes, and 02 for blemishes; but also the Bobbi Brown eye brightener in 3 Bisque. I then apply a light dusting of the Bobbi Brown nude finish illuminating powder in Bare (review here). FYI all my Bobbi Brown makeup can be seen in my wedding makeup post here.
Then I apply my contour, blush and highlight and for this I use the Rimmel sculpting palette (review here) which I just love!
Bronzer, blush and highlight after blending
I then do my brows and for this I use the Hi Impact brow palette which I have used consistently since receiving it in a Look Fantastic beauty box (here), and set in place with the Rimmel ‘Brow this way’ gel. Then for the eyes!
Using the Sleek Goodnight Sweetheart palette (review here), I apply ‘Hold me Tight’ across the whole lid as a base.
I then apply ‘Romance’ into the crease and blend –
For the shimmer which I think is what elevates this look to something ideal for your Christmas party or even Christmas day, I apply ‘Velvet Wrap’ and also ‘Love’ which I try to pack on quite heavily.
I then use ‘Lingerie’ in the inner corners of my eyes, and underneath my brow to lighten, and blend together. I then take some of the Bobbi Brown gel liner along my upper lash line and blend, before using the Stila Huge Extreme lash mascara (review here) to complete the look. Iv you wanted to, you can also add false eyelashes on top.
I have completed the look by applying Nars Palais Royal lip crayon.
I am by no means a makeup professional but I thought it would be fun to show you a look that I love and think will be ideal to replicate for your Christmas makeup… but it is of course totally up to you!
