I try to change my makeup routine from time to time. And I try to change the products I use. Sometimes it can be really hard. In December I’m always getting back to more classy festive makeup look and to the products I’ve loved. However, I test new things so I can fall in love with something and after some time say “I’ve loved it since…”
First thing in my makeup bag is L’Oreal Paris, True Match foundation ||review||. I’m still not sure about this one, but I’ve learned on which days it isn’t good to use it. I’ve started to pay more attention to my skin and therefore I know when to apply this foundation so it looks fantastic. It really matches the skin colour and is so easy to blend.
Under my eyes I use NYX Professional Makeup, HD Studio Photogenic concealer (CW01 Porcelain) and my trusty Catrice Cosmetics, Liquid Camoflage High Coverage Concealer (010 Porcellain). I’m testing NYX and so far I am pretty happy with it. It’s lighter that Catrice, in formula and in colour. Both do their job nicely. Hide all the things that have to be hidden.
Milani, Powder Blush (08 Tea Rose) is my totally favourite blush at the moment. It gives a very natural look with its matte finish. The colour is light, pastel pink that is just amazing. For my highlight and powder, I use Hourglass, Ambient (Luminous Light) ||review||. I love it so much.
Eyes & Brows
I love creating different makeup looks with Anastasia Beverly Hills, Modern Renaissance pallet ||review||. The eyeshadows have a great creamy formula. They blend beautifully. I think these colour shades are perfect for Christmas season. As a primer for it I apply Urban Decay, Eyeshadow Primer Potion Original. It is the best. All shadows stay in one place for the whole day.
I fill my brows with NYX, Eyebrow Cake Powder (blonde), then I apply Rimmel London, Brow This Way styling gel and as for mascara I use Maybelline New York, Lash Senstional. The mascara has a very dark brown colour. I’ve thought it will be more visible but it’s not really. Maybe the lashes are not that dark as they are when there is a black mascara, but still.
I apply my Lip Matic lip liner from Pierre Rene Professional which is super long-lasting. Then I put on my new red lipstick I’ve got from my advent calendar. It is Milani, 08 Ruby Valentine. The shade is darker classic red. The application is easy because it’s creamy. I’m still testing it but for sure I’ll be writing more about this one soon.
What do you have in your makeup bag for December?
