Are you headed to a Christmas party, or a family gathering this weekend? 

Here’s my Holiday makeup look for 2013!

What I used:

// Foundation: Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25 Hour

// Powder: ELF HD powder in translucent

// Concealer: MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW20

// Bronzer: Physicians Formula Bronze Booster

// Blush: ELF from the blush/bronzer (highlight/contour) duo

// Eyelashes: Ardell Duralash individuals lashes

// Eyeshadow: Maybelline #30 – Hushed Tints ( I only used the white and dark brown colors )

// Mascara: L’oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes in Black Laquer

// Lip liner: Sephora brand (from a kit)

// Lipstick: Rimmel London Lasting Finish in #60

// Brows: ELF Brow Kit (I didn’t pluck, don’t judge me!)



Before I did anything – I applied the the Ardell individual lashes to clean eyes. {No mascara, makeup or oils on your eyes or the glue won’t stick!}

This was my first time using individuals, I usually use full strips of lashes. It was surprisingly super easy, and supposedly they should stay on for a few weeks! Once the lashes were applied and the glue dried, I started on my makeup…

1// I moisturized my whole face and neck

2// Applied foundation (down my neck and blended!)

3// Applied concealer (under eyes, down my nose, on my chin and around my nose)

4// Applied HD powder all over my face

5// Used bronzer on under my cheek bones, top of forehead, down my neck and sides of my nose

6// Added blush on apples of my cheeks

7// Curled my real lashes {with my false ones}

8// Added mascara to top and bottom lashes

9// Used the white eye shadow for the inside corners of my eyes, under the bottom lashes and under my brows

10// Used the dark brown shadow on the center of my lid, starting from right above the pupil and blending outward toward the outer corner of my eye

11// Filled in brows (again, didn’t pluck today…so no judging! {LOL} )

12// Lined my lips with my Sephora liner

13// Filled in my lips with my new lippy! This color from Rimmel is PERFECT for Christmas. It’s not your classic holiday red, it’s more of a deep berry color. Definitely my new fave.

My shirt was $10 from Forever 21 {they have awesome sales this weekend!}

The earrings are from Styles For Less {less than $5}

and my necklace is from the {wait for it…} Dollar Store! 🙂

Merry Christmas my lovies…XOXO – Risse
