    My Christmas Makeup Look

    As far as holiday makeup goes, I kept my Christmas makeup this year rather light. With the outfit I planned to wear, I knew I wanted to bust out a bold red lip. I love smokey eyes and winged eyeliner, but decided to keep my eyes neutral and instead opted for strong brows to balance out the lips. Since there was little eye work, this look took less than 10 minutes to complete.



    I first prepped my face all over with Olay Complete All Day Moisturizer and my new Urban Decay Pore Perfecting Complexion Primer Potion. For foundation, I applied Revlon’s Nearly Naked in Fresh Beige with a Beauty Blender. Then I used my Bobbi Brown Corrector in Light to Medium Bisque to cover up my dark eye circles (because boy do I have them). Next, I applied Maybelline’s Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer in Brightener along the bridge of my nose, my chin, under my eyes, and the area above the middle of my brows (see photo below) for some highlighting/concealing/contouring. I skipped powder and bronzer and just applied Maybelline’s Master Glaze in Make A Mauve lightly on my upper cheekbones blending it downwards with my fingers. To finish up my face, I used a dense brush to apply the balm’s Mary-Lou Manizer above my cheekbones, along the bridge of my nose, and my cupid’s bow.

    As I mentioned, eyes were very simple. I curled the lashes first then applied Maybelline’s Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze with my fingers all over my lid up to the brow bone. Using the Mary-Lou Manizer again, I swept it along the brow bone and the inner corners of the eyes. Finally, I applied my current go-to mascara Covergirl’s The Super Sizer in Black. Moving upwards, I used my trusty Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Brunette to neatly shape and fill in my brows. I mostly use the lighter color, but will use the darker along the outer areas for a sharper line. Once I’m done, I set it with Anastasia’s Clear Brow Gel to keep everything in place.

    Bold lips are great during the holidays, but they take a little prep work if you want to make sure they last through all the yummy dinner foods and desserts. I outlined my lips with Urban Decay’s 27/4 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Ozone then filled them in. This stuff is great at preventing feathering and helping your lip color last. Even though it does everything a lip liner does, I still decide to use my NYX Lip Liner Pencil in Cabaret (I just like how it looks with the lipstick) – I once again outline my lips then fill them in completely. Once done, I apply my Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate lipstick in 107 in then finish the look with Nars Larger Than Life Lip Gloss in Place Vendome.

    There you have it! My “simple” Christmas makeup look this year!

    Get Ready With Me: Christmas

    While I spent Thanksgiving in Los Angeles, I made it back home to Florida for Christmas! Adjusting to the time difference has been a bit tough (still is!), so I woke up a bit later Christmas morning than usual. This must be a sign of me getting old – I remember when I couldn’t sleep at all Christmas Eve in excitement and got up at the break of dawn to peek at presents. As a result of my lateness, my Get Ready With Me video is cut a bit short. My family were literally waiting on me to finish up so we could eat and open presents! I didn’t show my hair  being done (but I am planning a hair curling tutorial video in the future!), and I totally forgot to film my outfit, nails, and accessories! Sorry, guys! I did have my sister snap a few quick shots of me though.
    Even though I didn’t get to film my hair and outfit, I did add in something a little different. I showed my usual just-got-out-of-bed morning look and what shower products I used along with my usual getting ready products. And before someone points it out, yes, I did brushed my teeth and floss – I just didn’t film it.

    Get Ready With Me ❤ Christmas Day

    Hope you guys all had a wonderful Merry Christmas yesterday!! Since I’m moving away to NYC in less than two weeks, presents were light (since I can’t take much up with me) but family time was still heavy. I won’t go into too much detail since I’m planning on doing a Christmas post so I’ll just jump right into my Christmas Day look.

    I was originally planning on wearing a bright red cherry sweater, leggings, and scarf (as seen in the video). However, since this IS Florida, after wearing this outfit for no more than 20 minutes, I started sweating unbearably and had to change into something a little more breathable. Hence, the second outfit.

    Either way, I knew I wanted to wear red to match my bold red lips. I originally wanted to wear my MAC “Ruby Woo” Matte Lipstick but couldn’t find it (I still have lots of unpacking to do from Tallahassee) so I went with my Kate Moss Rimmel Lipstick instead (paired with my Revlon “Candy Apple” Lip Butter which I LOVE). Since I decided to go for such dramatic lips, I downplayed everything else. Very neutral eyes and I passed on bronzer and instead used MAC’s “Soft & Gentle” Mineralize Skinfinish to give my super pale skin a touch of warmth.

    Oh, and for my hair, I was feeling my natural waves so I literally didn’t do anything to my hair but spritz it with some leave-in conditioner.

    Ta-da! What do you guys think??

    What did you all do for Christmas??
