Makeup for Christmas Day

Christmas is not only days away and along with doing some festive baking and crafts, I'm also excited to wear very Christmassy makeup! Given it only comes once a year, I like to make sure that my makeup is really special.

Eyes //

I love gold eye makeup all year long, but especially at Christmas time. I think I'll reach for my Naked palette, using 'Buck' as a base colour, a bit of bright 'Half-Baked' towards the inner corner, then use my Illamasqua Pure Pigment in 'Ore' - a beautiful dark gold glitter - on the outer lid and crease.

I'll finish it off with a bit of liquid liner and a coat of Benefit They're Real! mascara, because it lasts all day long. 

Base //

When I want to feel a bit special, I go for Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation (I wear shade 02), and it never fails to make my skin look amazing. I'll use a rosy hued blush like Bobbi Brown's 'Pale Pink', then finish off with a bit of Physician's Formula Shimmer Strip for some highlighting.

Lips //

Lots of eating occurs on Christmas day, so I want to go for something long-lasting, but also very merry. I've chosen Sephora's Cream Lip Stain in 'Strawberry Kissed', a beautiful red that is almost impossible to get off, no matter how many mince pies you consume.

What will you be sporting this Christmas day?
