This skin finish mineralize powder contains light highlighting particles of 77 different mineral complex which gives a lovely highlighted finish on the face and body. I personally use it mainly above my cheekbones as highlighter. A bit on my eyebrow bone and in the inner corner of the eyes. Depends on the makeup, if it is evening makeup, you can go slightly more with an application of this mineralise skin finish and go all over the face.

Very easily buildable product so if you want to create much stronger colour effect, it’s easily possible. Love this blush! A quite obsessed about Densiliss powders! They are light as feathers and works wonders on the skin in terms of firming and plumping effect.

Glossy with a gentle gel sparkle, this eye gloss will make your eyes instantly in a festive mood. You can wear on its own or on your favorite eye shadow. Preferably on a light eye colour.

And, voila.’ The glossy eye look effect is done!

Fales Eyelashes Volume 304 & Volume 303 £1.00 each

10 Festive Christmas Party Makeup Essentials

It was almost a week ago when I saw these EYELASHES BIG BEAUTIES! As soon as I saw them in the Superdrug store on The Strand in London, it was immediately inside me saying ‘yes’ and, when I saw the price, the two were in my hands. Over the years, I have loved working with Shu Uemera false lashes but these looked equally strong and its good to try something new. Agree? I will be wearing at least one of them on Christmas day!

Eyebrow Mascara By Terry £26

10 Festive Christmas Party Makeup Essentials

Eyebrow mascara is must whether you decide to use on its own or on top of your favorite eye brow pencil. The By Terry one is water in gel which within seconds dry so no smudges. If you need more filling to do on your eyebrows, I would advice eye brow pencil. If you have good defined eyebrows and need a bit of enhancement of a colour then, this eyebrow mascara is an ideal item for you. Can’t get enough of this product! There are 4 shades to choose from from lighter blonde shades, redheads to black eyebrows.

Anti-feathering Lip Pencil Crushed Berry Laura Mercier £19

10 Festive Christmas Party Makeup Essentials

I might probably be wearing red for Christmas Day but that doesn’t mean I can not wear Berry lip colour too on the other days during the holidays. This anti-feathering lip pencil from Laura Mercier can enhance your natural lip shape and defines it beautifully. Depends on your look, you can even fill whole lips with this lip pencil and, apply lipstick afterwards for more bold finish. Your lipstick will last longer.

Velour Lip Colour Boudoir Laura Mercier £22

10 Festive Christmas Party Makeup Essentials

It is matte lipstick but moisturising mango butter really helps to keep the lips hydrated and lush looking. Velour lip colour is – bold, matte and moisturising. Real dream for the lips especially for those cold winter months as more protection and colour is needed. Sorry the picture looks like there is a different shade there but I must have taken a picture in a different light. It is the same colour. It is a real Berry Pink!

Not foundation choice here, you are asking? No problemo, CLICK HERE and, it will take you to the foundation blog which I shared with you only a few weeks ago – some foundation makeup ideas there. Or, recently, I have also been trying new Hourglass Stick foundation – Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick. Great for ‘on-go’ or as a travel foundation. Quite heavy coverage – medium to full but you can make it less heavy if you use a finger and dab to a place on the face which might need coverage. Use it as a concealer rather than foundation if you prefer.

Ombre Blackstar Brown Perfection n.13 By Terry £29.00

10 Festive Christmas Party Makeup Essentials

Who would not know ombre backstars from By Terry? Who would like to achieve perfect smokey look in just few minutes and look like professional makeup artist did it? Light reflecting cream eyeshadow which last 24 hours and has an incredible strong pigment will help you just do that. The ombré blackstar is buidable and leaves flawless finish on the eye. On the picture below, I was using Ombre Blackstar n.13 + mixing with Ombre Blackstart n.12 Black Matte. Again, experiment with eye colours what works for you. Is it smokey eye look you prefer or rather go for lighter eye colours and red lips? Choice is Endless!10 Festive Christmas Makeup EssentialsHope you liked the makeup choice in this blog post. I know there are so many makeup items to choose from and can be quite confusing. But why not to mix & match with your favourites and add few from mine. Remember, blending is a key. So if by mistake, you add more foundation that you wanted to or, applied extra eye shadows in the eye crease  –  don’t worry – take a CLEAN blending makeup brush and keep blending till you happy with it. It is not the end of the world.

Happy Festive Season and don’t be afraid to experiment with makeup. Just have a fun with it!

There should a couple of more blogs before the year ends so stay tuned…

Lots of makeup love,
