It's my favorite time of the year!
Christmas has always been special to me because PRESENTS!!!
Haha no not really, it's special to me because of how my family/relatives would always gather and spend a couple of days having a good time with games and lots of eating... So much eating... Most of the time all the way into the new year.
During the time together everyone gets ready and makes an effort to look nice for dinner so thought I would do a simple look which is easy to adapt to your own way of wearing make-up using products easily duped.
I made this look at the end of November as I couldn't resist the gorgeousness of my Terra Firma lipstick.
Full details at the end as usual.
Dirty Hippie Cosmetics (DHC) Hemp seed and red raspberry primer, Mineral Concealer and powder in Sunkissed, Cocoanut highlight powder to add a natural soft glow. Bronzed Rose powder for a soft bronze to warm up my complexion to match the rest of my body as I'm very protective of my face and it hardly ever is exposed to the sun. Mineral eyeshadow in Boysenberry, a very light application (I always pat my brush on a piece of paper or my wrist before using any products on my face) to hollow out my cheek bones.
Eyeshadow base is the Gravity Primer from Zodiac Killer Cosmetics (review coming soon!). Started with DHC mineral eye shadow in Honeysuckle from the brow bone all the way down to my lids and inner corners. In the crease I used Pine Needles and Carbon together to avoid getting a too intense crease. Under the eyes I used Carbon on it's own and mixed some of it with Medusa's Make-up Eyeliner seal to create my own liner.
I also used Carbon for my brows.
Finished the look with Dirty Hippie Cosmetics Mineral lipstick in Terra Firma. I applied two coats, blotting between to create a long lasting and more matte looking lip.
And that's it!
