Modern Christmas Look With A 60's Twist

Today's post will be a breakdown of a look i posted on my instagram a few days ago.

(created using the new MAC Christmas Nutcracker collection)




Complexion

As i really wanted to focus on creating a gorgeous ethereal looking skin i prepped with the new PeachLite strobe cream to add that extra oomph. I followed this up with the Mineralize moisture foundation - a gorgeous medium coverage foundation with a dewy finish. i used the highlighting pens in the complexion shades (medium plus) to conceal under the eyes and add a soft brightness under the eyes and peaks of cheekbones to compliment the highlight.





Cheeks were warmed up using the BB compact cream bronzer in the shade 'Refined Golden' , i applied this with a #159 duo fibre brush to give a soft & blended yet defined look to the cheekbones and perimeters of the face. 
For blusher i used the gorgeous 'Sweet Vision' a delicate peachy shade with a soft gold sheen. To highlight the cheekbones,nose and brow bone I mixed the new extra dimension highlighter in Show Gold mixed with the PeachLite strobe cream to create an intensified glow- this mixture creates a paste that i dabbed on with my fingers.




Eyes

As i wanted to keep the focus on the double winged liner i only applied a soft wash of colour (extra dimension eyeshadow in Smoky Mauve) to the lids using a #217 blending brush.
For the liner i used Prunella pencil eyeliner applied using a #266 angled brush to create a double winged shape to define the eyes & give a 60's feel to the look.

Lips


To finish off the look i applied the 'Prancin' Dancin' lip gloss from the nude lip gloss kit . Upon close inspection this lip gloss is a gorgeous soft neutral shade with flecks of gold and pink shimmer running through it that catches the light beautifully.


As always i hope you enjoyed the look & thank you for popping by.
