Rudolph the Red-Lipped Reindeer


ON THE FIFTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS...
Today, I thought I'd do a quick run through of what I'll be wearing on my face this Crimbo...

So let's run through the basics... First up I moisturised with my  Clarins Daily Energizer Cream (normally I go for Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturiser because it's more light-weight but my skin is as dry as a Rhino right now so I'm upping the old moisture for now). Often I'll apply my Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer after this step but I skipped it today because I prefer it for oilier days.

Today's foundation of choice was the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum in the shade 53 which I've been really loving at the moment (ever since my Healthy Mix Foundation ran out). 

I concealed with the Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in the shade SC-2 and then contoured with a little Laguna Bronzer by NARS.

Next up I swept some No7 Stay Perfect Smoothing Eye Shadow in Bronze across my lids which I use instead of a primer. Then I applied MAC's Woodwinked all over my lid before blending Urban Decay's Smog across the outer corners of my eye and then along my waterline. I added a feline flick with my 2True Effortless Eyeliner in Black and then to finish off my eyes I curled my lashes with my Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers and applied my Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Blackest Black (it's not my favourite mascara of choice but I've just finished my Falsies one and so this is the only one I had handy.

To complete this look I prepped with LUSH's Mint Julips Lip Scrub before lining my lips with Barry M's Lip Liner in Red. Finally I applied the Rimmel Kate Matte Lipstick in 107 to finish off my festive look.

What will you be sporting of your face this Christmas?
