Happy holiday everyone!
Today, I want to share with you a simple holiday-inspired glam makeup look I have created a couple days ago. For those of you who love to have a glamour holiday look that is not too intimidated and not too hard to create. This look is for you!
When it comes to the face, I always make sure I select the right foundation for the occasion. If you are preparing this look for a Christmas or a New Year’s Eve party, this foundation below is a great fit for you.
I love this foundation because although it is a liquid foundation, it dries like powder. This is perfect for those of you who have oily skin like mine and want your foundation to stay flawless throughout the night. You can dance the night away without worry about your makeup melting or looking oily!
A tip for you: always set your foundation with loose powder!
In this look, I use Motives Translucent Loose Powder in Light to set my foundation
Since I have oily skin, I have to be super careful when it comes to highlighter! Motives Shape & Sculpt Duo Compact has always been my go-to because it is super easy to use and doesn’t add too much shine on my face.
In order for your eyeshadow and your eyeliner to last for hours, make sure you don’t skip the primer step!
My favourite eye primer has always been Motives Cosmetics Eye. I found that this formula is more creamy and less oily than other primer out there in the market. The best part is, a little goes a long way. This little jar has lasted me for 2 years already.
For the eyeshadows, I first use Motives Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Vanilla all over my eyelids: You don’t have to use the exact colour of eyeshadows to create this look, you can use any vanilla eyeshadow for this step.
Then, I apply Motives Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Sweet Plum on the crease and start blending it inwards
Lastly, I use Motives Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Vintage Glam as a transition colour to create a smooth transition between the dark and light colour and also to add the ‘glam’ factor to the eyes.
GRANDIÔSE Bendable Liquid Eyeliner
I was recently introduced to this eyeliner by my good friend & also Lancome National Makeup Artist, Myles Sexton and I have to say that I am in love! I like the fact that how I have a lot of control with this eyeliner and it doesn’t smudge at all no matter how long you wear it.
To finish the eyes, you can fill your bottom waterline with any of your favourite black khol eyeliner.
Make sure to go for those that are waterproof so you don’t look like a panda by the end of the day!
I love this eyebrows gel because it is water proof and it stays on the whole day. If you don’t want your brow to move, apply eyebrows products on before any skincare or foundation.
For the lips, I use Motives Cosmetics Matte Liquid Stick in Scandalous because this colour is fabulous for this season and it is also super long lasting. I love that although it is a matte colour, it does not dry out my lips at all and I can wear it for the whole day sometimes without having to retouch or reapply.
Juicy Shaker in Walk The Lime on top of my lips. I am loving these little Juicy Shakers. They are super cute and they smell amazing. You totally have to check them out!
Don’t forget to complete your look with a pair of your favourite falsies! I bought these when I was in Asia a long time ago so I don’t even remember what brand they are.
Last but not least, always remember to set your makeup with your favourite makeup setting spray to make sure your make up is long lasting and you can celebrate this Christmas and New Year while looking flawless!
I hope this post can help and give you some inspirations to create your own glam look tonight for Christmas Eve and for the up coming New Year parties!
Looking glamorous doesn’t have to always be smokey eyes and big bold lashes.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year Everyone!
