It’s the festive season and its time for new makeup, sparkly eyes and beautiful lips to pucker up with under the mistletoe. So, I have selected some particularly lovely items to create this look on my lovely model Louise. IMG_0011

I started by applying a primer all over the face using a favourite from New CID cosmetics. Next was an brightening eye primer from Bare Minerals – slightly shiny, a little sparkly and definitely snazzy. I used  a foundation from YSL – Touche Eclait range and a concealer from Estee Lauder. To brighten up her cheeks and add a natural flush, I used this very pink lip and cheek colour from Bobbi Brown. Definitely one to apply in good light as it is indeed very pink if over done!!

My gorgeous new Naked palette from Urban Decay, in smoky was just what I needed for the eyes. First, an all over colour of combust. Then I applied radar in the socket, dirty sweet on the lid and high as a highlighter. To emphasise the corners, I used slanted. To finish off the eye and make it look more complete, I softly lined the top lid and outer third underneath lash line with 24/7 Naked 3 glide on pencil by Urban Decay. A good coat of mascara from Georgio Armani, Eyes to Kill and we have a beautiful glamorous but not over glamorous eye.

Now for the lips. I am a particular fan of Bare Minerals lip glosses for their staying power, taste and lack of nasty ingredients so I lay them out and picked spark plug. Louise was delighted with her makeover and dashed off to have her hair done

And there we have it, a gorgeous fresh look ready for a night out with a glass of mulled wine and a sprig of mistletoe. If you’re into all of that of course!
