Everyday Festive Make-Up Look

Hey girlie's!!!

Today I thought I'd share with you all what make-up I've been loving to wear on a daily basis so far in December, plus I realised I hadn't actually done a make-up look post in a while (naughty me) so I thought I'd go for it. The look I've been loving is flawless looking skin, a very soft gold eye with a bright red matte lip, I think the combination of the gold eye and red lip is lovely throughout December especially over the festivities.

Anywhooo onto what make-up I used to create this look...

 To perfect my base I buffed in Estee Lauder's Double Wear Foundation in Fresco using my Real Techniques Buffing Brush, I love this foundation as it provides amazing coverage without looking cakey or too much, I then went on to conceal my dark under eye circles with my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in 1 fair. Then to set everything into place I used my Vichy Loose Setting Powder, I then finished off my base with a small amount of my Deborah Milano Blush in 05 Cherry.

I then went on to do my eyes, my favourite part he he...

I started off by packing the shade 'Half Baked' from the Urban Decay Naked Palette all over my lid and softly blended the edges, I then took the shade 'Buck' which is matte light brown and blended that through the crease, I didn't want to go to mad with the crease work as this is a day time look so I wanted it be quite subtle. I then used my Collection Extreme Felt Tip Liner in Black to line my upper lash line and added a small flick just to extend the eye ever so slightly. I lined my waterline with my Barry M Bold Black Gel Eyeliner and then took an angled brush with a small amount of 'Darkhorse' from the Naked Palette and used that sparingly under the lower lash line, I then finished of with a coat of  Rimmel Scandleyes Retro Glam Mascara


For the lips I started off by added some lip balm just to soften up the lips and get them nice and moisturised, I do this before I even apply any make-up at all as it gives the balm time to work. I then popped on my MUA Matte Lipstick in Scarlet Siren, its a gorgeous bright red that just screams Christmassy lips to me ha ha.

You could easily turn this daytime look into an evening look by added a darker shade through the crease and smoking it out or you could pack some loose gold pigment on the eye lid which would look pretty and sparkly. You could also add a darker more vampy lip and extend the liner, I could go on forever he he but in a nutshell its a very easy look to create either for daytime or for the evening. 


I hope you liked my easy everyday festive red and gold make-up look, any feedback would be great, I'm in no way a make up artist but I do try my best he he!!! 

What make-up look will you be wearing over the festivities??? I'd love to know.
