Well hello there!
First of all Merry Christmas to you all! I hope you all have an amazing day and eat lots of delicious food! As it is Christmas day I thought I would show you a classic red lip and glittery cut crease (first attempt) look. I went for glowy skin including a strong highlight, sliver glitter on the eyes and a bold red lip.

I was inspired by a photo I had seen on Pinterest and I just had to recreate it.
For my primer I used the ELF Hydrating Primer, this just basically feels like a moisturiser. Lately I have been getting a lot of dry patches under my eyes so I like to use a hydrating primer. For my foundation I used one of the Primark ones, the 'Perfect Finish Foundation'. This claims to be medium coverage whilst having a semi-matte finish. I do agree that it is semi-matte as it definitely has a glow, however it hasn't got the best coverage - I would say it's light to medium. It is very liquidy as well. For my concealer I used the Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer in shade 'Light' as this is also a hydrating product. I love this concealer, it feels very nice and smooth on my skin and it has very good coverage as well. For my powder I used my trustee Rimmel Stay Matte Powder which is amazing, I have spoken about this before on my Everyday Makeup Routine. I also used the Rimmel Natural Bronzer which I use nearly everyday. For my contour, blush and highlight I used the Tarte Ladies Night Clay Palette - which blends out beautifully on my skin and smells like chocolate! For even more glow (because I clearly am extra) I used the shade 'Chroma' in the Luna Glow palette from Primark (review coming soon). 

Next onto eyes: For my eyebrows I used to swear by the Freedom Pomade but recently I have fallen in love with the Benefit Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil. It takes half the time as a pomade and is much easier (I am in the shade 3). For my eye shadow I used the Soph x Makeup Revolution palette, and I used a combo of the red, brown and transition shades. I then got my Boing Airbrush Concealer and cut half of my crease, this was my first ever attempt of doing it so probably not the best. For the glitter I used the Stila Magnificent Metals in the shade Diamond Dust - which is STUNNING! I want more of these, it is so easy to apply. My eyelashes are the Primark SoSu lashes in the style 'Holly', these are so pretty and fluffy I love them. I used the Mac Big & Bold Lash Mascara for my bottom lashes and the Mac Eyeliner in shade 'Teddy' in my water line. Finally, for lips I used a Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in the shade 'Creeper'.

I hope you enjoyed this post, definitely something new for me. If you enjoy these makeup look posts then let me know in the comments, and I'll be sure to do them more in the future!
