Christmas Day Makeup

Merry Christmas everyone!!
For today's post I wanted to share my Christmas Makeup Look.

For my base I started with the Burberry Fresh Glow Luminious Fluid Base in Nude Radiance 01. I just use my hands to apply a small amount of this all over my face. I find that it really helps add a subtle shimmer to my skin and makes a great base for foundation of tinted moisturiser.
I then used my Bourjois CC Cream as my foundation. I used my real techniques buffing brush to apply this as it really helps to blend the product into the skin without looking cakey or heavy.
For Concealer I used my beloved Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in shade Cool Medium 2. I used my Real Techniques setting brush to blend this in as I find its a perfect fit under my eyes.

For Bronzer I used my Benefit Hoola. I used my Zoeva 105 Luxe Highlight brush to apply this. I did a subtle contour along my cheekbones, temple and jaw line.
For Highlighter I used Rimmel Good To Glow Highlighter in Soho Glow on the top of my cheekbones and theBalm Mary Lou Manizer Luminizer just subtly over the top. I used my fingers to blend the cream and powder highlighters together so it created a lovely hint of shimmer and glow.

For Eyeshadow I used theBalm Nude 'Tude Eyeshadow Palette. I used the shade 'Seductive' all over the lid and built up a matte crease by using 'Sultry' first along my whole crease, applied and blended with my Sigma E35 brush. I then applied 'Sleek' to the outer corner of my eye and blended it into 'Sultry' with my Sigma E40 brush.Under my eye I applied 'Seductive' with 'Sleek' blended into it.
For Mascara I used Maybelline Rocket Mascara for thick black lashes.

For lips I started by applying Rimmel Exaggerate Lipliner in East End Snob to line my lips. I then used MAC Fast Play lipstick which is a lovely pinky brown nude and its quickly becoming my favourite MAC Lipstick.
