For my Christmas party look this year I've gone for quite a classic look, red lips and a swipe of eyeliner and that's it! For some reason my lipstick looks pink in the above picture (I blame dodgy lighting!) but I'm actually wearing Ruby Woo by Mac. I also decided not to bother with an eyeliner flick like I usually do and instead I think it looks more like I'm wearing false eyelashes which I'm not.
You can see my makeup in a more natural light in the pictures below. You can also see how pale I am, PALE AND PROUD I AM!
What I used:
- Rimmel Fix and Perfect Pro Primer
- Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation
- Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer
- Rimmel Clear Complexion Powder
- Mac Pro Longwear Blush in 'Rosy Outlook'
- Benefit Magic Ink Eyeliner
- Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara Extreme Black
- Mac Lipstick in 'Ruby Woo' Matte
For my hair I used the Babyliss Curling Wand to create quite tight curls. Once my hair was cool I brushed it through with fingers for more of a tousled look. For more volume I sprayed Batiste dry shampoo at the roots then gave it a good backcomb with my fingers, easy peasy! I use the Umberto Giannini Hot Styler Spray which it acts as a heat defence spray, smooths as a serumm as well as a hairspray so you can use it before and after you curl your hair.
I really love this look, it's quite Marilyn Monroe inspired and it's a real classic that anyone can wear. More than likely this will be my Christmas day makeup too!
