Festive make up

Don't you just love that feeling when it's Christmas or NYE and you're in the mood to get dressed and primped for the festive evening all day? I am the kind of person that could spend the whole day doing my make-up and getting ready just for a family occasion. Especially when I have all these beautiful products to play with!

A healthy glow is important for me in any beauty look. That's why I always use my Healthy Glow powder from the Chanel Les Beiges Collection. I use it as a sunpowder just underneath my cheekbones and around the contour of my face, so in a '3' shape. For a festive look I add a lot of MAC MSF Soft & Gentle on top of my cheekbones, I just love how it gives my face a luxurious shimmer and it illuminates so beautifully!
I use a warm pink blush on my cheeks, the Maybelline Face Studio Master in Peach Pop.

I have a lot of palettes to choose from for my eye look. I featured my Naked Basics palette from Urban Decay here, from which I use the colours as a base for a glam look. I mostly combine it with more glittery and brighter colours from other palettes, like my Maybelline The Blushed Nudes one or my old Urban Decay Ammo palette. I can't find it for sale anywhere anymore, but the UD Shadow Box palette is derived from it.

To top off my eye look, I curl my lashes and use mascara. I switch between the extravagant black Urban Decay Perversion and a more subtle, dark brown from Helena Rubinstein.

To make my look extra festive, I just HAVE to go for a red lip. I combine my MAC Cherry lip liner with my new Dior Diorific Mat lipstick in the shade Fabuleuse from the limited edition holiday collection.

This results in a festive look that makes me absolutely happy!

What are your favourite products for a beauty look for the holidays?



  1. Het is echt al lang geleden dat ik u blog nog eens gecheckt heb, alles is zo veel veranderd, maar echt mega leuk om te lezen!! Dat basics palette van UD staat echt al lang op mijn wishlist, ik heb het gewone Naked palette maar dat is zo irritant om mee te sleuren soms door de grootte!

    1. Oh dankjewel Fee! Is echt een goed palette als je een kleintje zoekt met matte kleuren inderdaad! Ik gebruik het bijna bij elke look als basis omdat het zo'n handige kleurtjes zijn :D
