If you’re the guest or making Christmas dinner for your family and friends this year, why not kick up your festive mood with a gorgeous red lip?
Here are five simple steps to level up your makeup this holiday season.
I often wear concealer without foundation, because you can’t really see it and it does a lot of heavy lifting with very little effort. The key is to ensure that your skin in nicely hydrated and moisturized. To prepare my skin, I used MIFA – All Over Oil then dapped on Tarte – Shape Tape Concealer under my eyes. I tapped it in using my fingers and used as needed to even out any imperfections on my skin.
Next, I contoured my face using Fenty Beauty – Match-Stix Contour SkinStick. To use, draw a line below your cheekbones, along the forehead and jawline, then blend out using a large blender blush. This creates a natural flawless finish.
Here’s where we level-up the look. Simply filled your eyebrows using Benefit – Precisely My Brow Pencil, curl your lashes and coated them with black mascara and apply a shade of your favourite red lipstick. I’m wearing MAC – Ruby Woo.
To complete the look, dabbed on the Bobbi Brown – Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks in Powder Pink and lightly misted my face with MIFA – Vitamin Sea Essence, a vegan collagen mist to protect, tone and hydrate the skin.
