Speedy Sparkly Christmas Make Up

This is a handy Christmas look that anyone can achieve and actually one of the quickest looks I’ve done on someone that had a gorgeous result.

I’m sure most of you have a Christmas event to attend and like most of us have little time to be Faffing with makeup looks for hours. Wether you’re a busy Mammy or going straight from work to your Xmas do – this look will see you through the night for some festive glam.

Firstly I used embryolisse moisturiser to moisturise and prime the face alongside Charlotte Tilbury flawless filter
Nars radiant long wear foundation was applied next and buffed in to skin
I used maybeline concealer to brighten under eye and conceal any redness around the face
To set the skin, a light dusting of mineral powder is all that was needed
To perfect the skin, I used sculpt and accentuate shaping powders and a pinch of dame blush – all by MAC
I fanned whisper of gilt by MAC across the cheek bones, bridge of nose and forehead for a gorgeous gold glow.
For eye base, I used my trusty painterly paint pot by MAC followed by blanc type and quick soft strokes of soft brown (also by MAC) in the crease to create subtle definition.
Feline black kohl by MAC was then applied to lash line and diffused in to a flick followed by the icing On the lid- stila kitten karma pressed in with finger
Use lashes of your choice – I used a gorgeous lime yes edition pair by essence.
For a trendy just been kissed mouth, apply your favourite red lippy and blend out with your fingers.
