Christmas Make Up Essentials

Monday, 14 December 2015

I'm kind of struggling to get into the whole festive mood at the moment, so I thought I would play some Christmas music and share my make up essentials for Christmas!

Red Lips

So it wouldn't really be Christmas make up without a classic red lip! I've included three different red lips that are very festive. 
First of all is the Clinique lipstick in Cherry Pop. This a classic cool tone pinky red that would be perfect for a Christmas party or meal as it's long lasting and very pigmented.
In the middle is the Kiko lipstick in the shade 06. This a darker, red wine shade which would be lovely to wear again to a Christmas party or on a night out. This shade is not as dark as it appears, so it is definitely a wearable colour for this time of year. 
The last shade is the Soap and Glory Gloss Stick in Berry Gorgeous. This a very sheer red shade and is a gloss rather than a bright lipstick. This would be great to wear on Christmas day as it's not too OTT but still looks very festive!

Eye Shadow 

Swatches left to right: Kiko Eye Shadow in 102, Milani Eye Shadow in I Heart You and MUA in Hunter Green

The classic Christmas eyeshadow colours are obviously gold, red and green! All of these shades are drugstore and whilst they're affordable, the quality is still amazing and they're extremely pigmented! I particularly love Hunter Green by MUA! It is such a perfect Christmas green. 

 Highlight and Blush

Those of  you that follow me on Instagram (@charwbeauty) will know that I FINALLY got my hands on Jaclyn Hill's Champagne Pop highlighter! Now I can totally understand why everyone loves this product. It is the most beautiful highlighter I have ever used and I will be packing this on around Christmas! 
For blush I've chosen a MAC Sheer Tone Blush in the shade Breath of Plum. I think this would be perfect for Christmas as it's very natural looking and won't look too over powering with red lips, sparkly eyes and a lot of Champagne Pop on!! 

Thanks for reading :)
