Christmas Party Makeup
its party season and I already have a few events lined up. its the time to whip out the glitters, red lipsticks and fluttery lashes and just sit down a few minutes longer to get ready. maybe with a Christmas film in the background (the holiday would be my choice) or some Michael Bublé blasting. a glass of sparkling wine on the side and your perfect dress waiting for you to put it on. I love this season and I can’t wait to get ready for my Christmas parties and especially Christmas eve as its the main gift-giving day in Germany. in today’s post, I thought I would share my makeup picks with you and the products I will be using for my perfect Christmas party makeup.
gold glitters and red lips
I think theres nothing wrong with being cliché when it comes to Christmas makeup. it just works every year and I see no reason to change it. my perfect base for years has been Nars sheer glow. theres no foundation like to me. it makes my skin look radiant and glowy and provides enough coverage to last the whole evening. with a little la girl pro conceal under the eyes to brighten my face it’s my perfect base. this year, I want to go a bit more smokey for the eyes as I like going for a nude lip when I know there will be loads of food involved as I don’t want to worry about my red lips smudging everywhere whilst I tuck into a chocolatey dessert. the charlotte tilbury instant eye palette is still my makeup crush and I can’t wait to use the disco eye shadows to celebrate the festive season. if I want to go all out I might add some glitters. the NYX face and body glitters in gold and silver are just perfect for that. my perfect nude just has to be Charlotte Tilbury pillow talk. it has been my shade the whole year and I won’t stop wearing it anytime soon. if I want to go for a red lip I like using my mac viva glam Rhianna lipstick. it is such a perfect cherry red that stays comfortable for ages and doesn’t dry out my lips. a spritz of my makeup revolution pro fix fixing spray and my makeup will look glowy all night and it will last for sure. my perfect festive scent is Tom Ford black orchid. I bought it last year around Christmas and it brings back so many festive memories and is just so deep and sexy.
so here we are. my perfect Christmas makeup. what about you? do you have anything in mind yet?
