Holiday / Christmas Makeup Look


Hi Everyone!

Merry Christmas my sweeties! I wish you all the best in the world, peaceful and joyfull homes and thank you for reading my blog and supporting me all this year.
I want to share with you a holiday or better said a Christmas makeup look and I hope it will be useful to you.
I used Christmas colors such as green, red, gold and some fine glitter.

Did you know the origins of the Christmas colors?

Well. according to the christian belief "the color green is a natural representation of eternal life, specifically the evergreen tree and how it survives through the winter season. That’s why, in Christian belief, green represents the eternal life of Jesus Christ. The color red symbolizes Christ’s blood which was shed during his crucifixion."  (source: internet)






Face:

Sephora Smoothing Primer (clear)
MUFE Liquid Lift Foundation No.9
MUFE Camouflage Cream No.13 (concealer)
MAC Studio Careblend/ Pressed Powder in Light Plus

Cheeks:

Sephora Mineral Loose Powder Foundation Mat Tan 45 (Cognac), used for contouring the face
Peggy Sage Eyeshadow- Rose Tendre, I used it as a blush
MUFE Compact Shine On Shade 3, it's a gorgeous shimmering illuminator

Eyes:

Too Faced Shadow Insurance for priming the lids
MAC Bare Study Paint Pot on the center of the lid, used as a base for the L'Oreal Color Infaillible- Sahara Treasure 021
I apllied MAC Teal Pigment to the outer and inner corner of the eyes, then to give a little depth I applied a black eyeshadow, I accentuated more the outer corner and dusted just a little black to the inner corner
Above the crease I blended MAC Passionate Eyeshadow
I highlighted the browbone with MAC Nylon Eyeshadow
MAC Blacktrack Fluidline along the upper lashes
I patted some fine glitter all over the lid - MAC Reflects Antique Gold Glitter Brillants
MUFE Khol Pencil 1K used on the waterline and also along the lower lashes, then I blended the black with MUFE Star Powder 955 (it's a gorgeous maroon with blue-green highlights)
