I’ve been to three holiday parties so far, and there are a couple more lined up until the new year. This week was a bit crazy with my boyfriend’s work holiday party and mine, but I think it turned out well. We’ve been coming home past midnight every night and falling asleep between 1 and 2 in the morning. The schedule hasn’t been pleasant for my skin but I’ve been moisturizing and keeping to a strict routine every night/ early morning. I wanted to share some holiday photos with you and tell you about the products I used to create an effortless and “radiant” look, as I was told. By the way, it felt good to wear makeup again after 20 days!
I decided to go with a very simple look for the holiday parties this week. They were all professional so I didn’t want to overdo my look.
Face: ELF foundation around my face (half a drop) and Benefit’s Fake Up in light to conceal my under eyes. To contour, I used Benefit’s bronzing powder in Hoola. Blush in Laura Geller’s Blush-n-Brighten in Grapefruit for nice dewey cheeks, and Benefit’s Watt’s Up and Mirabella’s Shimmer Rose to highlight. Eyes: Tat2u’s mascara in Black and Bentonite Clay eyeshadow from MAKE’s Calypso Palette all over my lid. For brows, I used Billion Dollar Brows Universal Pencil. For the lips, I wanted to go with a just-bitten look, I used ELF’s moisturizing lipstick in Ripe Rose. Essie Polish in Marshmallow on nails.
