The Christmas Tutorial

As we start into the month of December our calendars start filling up with many Christmas events with our friends and family. I love the look of gold and red together at Christmas time so I decided to create a subtle but glamorous to wear the Christmas colours this holiday season.

-Rimmel match perfection foundation
-Sleek face form 
-Nyx matte finish setting spray
-Real techniques blush, contour and expert face brushes 

Starting off with the face, I'm going to buff a medium coverage foundation into my skin. Making sure to blend down my neck to make sure there are no foundation lines.

I'm now contouring my face in a 3 shape to create a shadow and add warmth to my face. After that I'm adding some highlighter to the high point of my face. My cheekbones the bridge of my nose and my Cupid's bow. I'm finishing off with some blush on the apples of my cheeks.

After a spritz of finishing spray to make sure everything stays in place our face is done. 

Now onto eyes,

-Tweezerman eyelash curler
-Nyx jumbo eye pencil in yogurt
-Real Techniques deluxe crease brush
-Rimmel eyebrow pencil
Maybeline the rocket mascara
-Maybeline brow drama in dark blonde

After lightly filling in my eyebrows with a pencils I'm running some tinted brow gel through them to keep them in place.

I'm placing the shadow stick all over the lid, slightly in the crease and on the lower lash line.

Blending everything out to make sure there are no harsh lines.

I'm now curling my lashes and adding two to three coats of a volumising mascara.

You could leave the makeup here for a natural everyday look. Which I like to do on a regular basis.

Or you could add some red lipstick. 
I'm applying it straight from the bullet, dabbing at first and then swiping over the lips.

And were done! 

Hope ye enjoyed this tutorial
