Every December, I like to make an extra effort when it comes to my makeup as I have lots of Christmas parties to go to, but even in general I like to spruce up my everyday makeup routine. It's all about adding extra shimmer and sparkle, so today I am sharing with you my favourite festive party makeup look.
I start with the Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow* before my foundation as it adds a luminous base that I can easily work from. It's great for when my skin needs a pick me up and when I want my skin to feel more primed before doing a full makeup routine.
After applying my foundation and concealer, I go in with my Huda Beauty Easy Bake Loose Powder* as it never fails to prolong the longevity of my base and leave my skin looking matte, yet never feeling cakey. Then it's onto contour, where I use a mixture of cream and powder formulas to achieve a warmer and more chiseled complexion. Charlotte Tilbury helps me once again as I use their Hollywood Contour Wand first and blend it seamlessly into the skin, finishing up with the Filmstar Bronze and Glow* to achieve a more striking (yet natural!) looking look.
The eyes are where I like to concentrate the most on, I'll either be going for a smokey eye or an easy sparkly look. The latter is super easy as I just use the Stila Shimmer and Glow Liquid Eyeshadow* to sweep a wash of colour over the lids and followed it up with mascara. My favourite at the moment is to wear the Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon on the lash line and followed it up with Cyprus Umber from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette* smudged around the eyes.
For my lips, I finish off with either a striking red or a easy to wear nude. The Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk* is an obvious favourite, but I've also been loving their Legendary Queen Lipstick* as well. To finish it all off, I wear and then bring out my Marc Jacobs Daisy Perfume* in this mini form, this was gifted to me from World Duty Free and it comes in super handy when I need a top up throughout the evening.
