My Illamasqua Paranormal Pallete is a great festive treat! With pink, green, orange and purple cream to powder texture, these are lovely bases as well as standalone eyeshadows. However, be careful how you wear colorful eyeshadows, they can be quite unflattering. Always use a black eyeliner; smudged or flicked, either will do the job. My Naked Basics’s palette is an everyday staple. The colors in these are great for defining your crease or highlighting the inner part of your eye. Also, I use the color faint to define my eyebrows. Therefore, it is always a staple for the holidays.
Estee Lauder’s Pure Color Cello Shots Cheek Rushes in X-Pose Rose is Christmas on your cheeks. The color is gorgeous hue of plum and maroon and very flattering for light to medium skin tones. Use sparingly or it could be quite bright on pale skin. YSL’s Glossy Stain in 13 Rose Tempura is an absolute delight. I will be doing an in-depth review in Jan, but this stuff stays on forever. It has an amazing staying power and is quite glossy throughout the day, irrespective of whether you eat or drink. A big thumbs up to YSL on making another to-die-for lip formulas.
Christmas needs a bit of gold. I haven’t thought my look through yet, but if you have seen my previous makeup tutorial, you would know how much I love this gold eyeshadow. I will definitely be using this to create some really intense festive eye look.
Christmas is 3 days away and if you haven’t decided what makeup you want to wear, here are my two looks
However, if you are looking to get creative and make your own looks, I suggest you play by these products, as they are tried and tested amazing. I am sure y’all have your favourite bases to pair this on top of, but when in doubt go for a full proof foundation!
Have great holidays!
