I missed another day of blogmas. Shame on me! To make up for that I thought I would combine what I wanted to yesterday with what I wanted to do today.
Let’s start with my bare face.
My skin is quite alright at the moment, only a little redness on my forehead adn cheeks. Next I applied my Catrice Prime and Fine primer, it is Christmas after all and I want my foundation to stay all night.
After the Prime and Fine I buffed on my new foundation. I ordered it from feelunique.com as this shade is not available in Germany. It is L’Oréal the foundation True Match in N1 Ivory. I loved L’Oréal’s True Match foundations for a long time, but in Germany they start with N2, which is simply too dark for me. With the True Match a little goes a long way: One pump is enough to cover my whole face and the foundation feels super light on my skin, almost as if I wasn’t even wearing anything, but it has medium to full coverage. It is important though to shake the foundation up before you apply it otherwise it will look cakey. It stays on well, it makes my skin look great and it has a slightly dewy finish. IT comes in a hefty glass bottle with a pump, which dispenses just enough product for me. It has SPF 17, 30 ml in a bottle and costs around 11€. I highly recommend it!
My next step was to apply a primer on my eyes-I used my trusted Maybelline Colortattoo in 65 Pink Gold- and then I filled in my brows, letting the Colortattoo set before applying my eyeshadows.
And now for the fun part: The eye make up: I used my MAC Rockers & Reelers palette from a christmas collection from two years ago, but the colors are quite dupable. First I applied the slightly peachy gold (bottom left, Family Treasures) with a fluffy eyeshadow brush, then I patted the white shimmery shadow (top left, White Rabbit) in the tearduct area of my eye and last but not least I blended the bronzey-coppery shade (bottom right, Crown&Sceptre) underneath the eye and very lightly in the crease.
You know I can’t leave it like this without some liner. I used MAC Feline on the upper and lower waterline but I only pulled it halfway in, then I applied a slightly winged liner with my Max Factor Colour Expert Waterproof Eyeliner. After the eyeliner I applied powder to set my foundation. I always use my powder before putting on mascara so that it won’t settle on the lashes and make them grey.
My Mascara of choice at the moment is the Volume Million Lashes also by L’Oréal. It is super black, defines, volumizes and doesn’t smudge or flake off. Then I applied my blush. I chose a bronzey glowy shade and swept it on the high points of my cheeks and in a slight c-shape up to my temples.
Last but not least I opted for my beloved Rimmel by Kate Moss 107 as a lip. Matte and longlasting but super comfortable to wear, a great companion for the Christmas shenanigans I think!
This is the final look. Excuse the funny face, this actually went up on Instagram but for some reason, the colors are quite accurate here so I decided to post it here, too 🙂
I love this look, I think this is the one I’m going to wear on Christmas Eve! Oh, you can also see here that I got my hair cut. I like this length even though it is a lot shorter than what I had for a long time. I can’t wait to see what it looks like curled!
I hope you can forgive me for the missed day!
