Make-up ideas for my holiday statement-look
My dearies, for me, Christmas-time is also the perfect occasion to get wound up in all things beauty. I didn’t only try something new with my hair (as you can see, I combed it all to one side and I love the edgy look), I also thought up a really glam make-up look for the holidays.
During the pre-Christmas beauty event Shiseido had invited us to a couple of weeks ago, I also got to learn a few new tricks when it comes to putting on a glam holiday look. And with those newly learned hacks, I created my own Christmas statement-look at home – of course, including a bold red lip and a lot of glitter and glam around the eyes. Perhaps, you’ll wanna try some of the products I used for re-creating this look at home as well?
To achieve the right amount of glam around the eyes, I adore using the Shimmering Cream Eye Colors in all different kinds of matching shades, because you can work them in really well and with all their shimmering, the still look natural enough for me. But generally, I really enjoy using decorative cosmetics by Shiseido – the quality truly convinced me. The Sheer and Perfect Foundation for example looks really natural when you work it in with a soft sponge and a couple of minutes to spare. And if you apply some rouge (for example from your lip colour) BEFORE the foundation, you can achieve a truly natural but radiant skin tone.
By the way, this time I’m not wearing lipstick but some lip liner that I placed all over my lips and a beautiful lip gloss on top for some extra shine. Like this, your lip colour will last forever – I promise! But always remember to “frame” your lips with concealer first, so the lip gloss won’t leave the borders of your lips.
Let me know, how do you like my Christmas make-up for this year? Is this something you could wear as well? Or what kind of make-up will you wear for the holidays?
