Hello everyone! Today's post is a collab with the gorgeous Francoise, a Dutch Beauty Blogger. We decided to team up and create two holiday looks; Francoise's look focuses on the Red and Gold aspect of Christmas (featuring gold eyes and red lips) while mine focuses on a more neutral makeup look for a Holiday Dinner or even a Party.
I've already done my face makeup and filled in sparse areas of my brows. To start this look off, I am going to begin with The Nudes Palette from Maybelline and take a light, shimmery brown as an all over lid colour.
Next, I am going in with a gold eyeshadow from Ralo Cosmetics in the shade '22 Gold' on the centre of my lid to create somewhat of a halo effect.
I am then going to apply the a matte brown colour using my Revlon eyeshadow brush, into my crease as a transition shade and outer v.
To add a bit of definition and highlight underneath my browbone, I am using this gorgeous cream-pink shade.
This will help to define my eyes as well as create more depth. To finish off the eye look, I am using an all-time favourite mascara from Rimmel in the shade '004 Jet Black' from the Kate Moss collection.
The finished eye look looks like this:
Moving onto face, I am using my second main product for this look and that is the Blush & Contour Palette from Makeup Revolution and taking this gorgeous champagne highlighter and applying that on the top of my cheekbones using a Real Techniques brush.
I love this palette as it just helps to create a gorgeous glow on the skin as well as add a bit of warmth to my face. Lastly, I am going to use this gorgeous nude plushglass in the shade 'Big Baby' from M.A.C Cosmetics.
I like to apply it just using the applicator and starting from the inside and working my way outwards to ensure maximum coverage. What I love about this product is that even though it has a gloss-like texture, it is definitely less shiny and goopy.
That is it for my finished makeup look! As I have already mentioned, this is a collab with Francoise, so please be sure to have a look at her blog! She is so friendly, and absolutely stunning!
