Clinique Party Favours Makeup Set*
Countdown to Christmas: 14 days! Christmas presents – check; Christmas jumper – check; stretchy trousers for Christmas dinner – check; Downton Abbey Christmas special set to record – check; Christmas party makeup – check! :)
This festive look consists of raspberry, chocolate-brown and light pink shades; combined with a bright raspberry lip, it’s perfect for Christmas parties and will get you right into the festive spirit! I created this look using the products from the Clinique Party Favours Makeup Set, which comes with: High Impact Mascara, Chubby Stick Intense in Roundest Raspberry, A Different Nail Enamel for Sensitive Skins in Cosmo Chic, All About Eyes, Quickliner for Eyes Intense in Black Honey and Limited Edition All About Shadow Compact in Crystal Pink, Hazy, Raspberry Beret and Chocolate Covered Cherry. Let’s get to the tutorial :)
I applied the Clinique All About Eyes cream on my under-eye area and on my eye lids to brighten both areas. Then I moved on to Benefit The Porefessional primer, followed by Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation in 5,5, a dab of MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NW20 under the eyes, on my eyelids and around my nose, and a quick swipe of Giorgio Armani Micro-Fil Loose Powder in #01 all over the face with a big fluffy brush.
For the eye makeup I used the Clinique Limited Edition All About Shadow Compact; I started with Crystal Pink all over the lid, then I applied Raspberry Beret on my crease, blending and softening the edges with Hazy. With a small eyeshadow brush I applied a bit of Chocolate Covered Cherry on the outer corner of my eyes and I also used the same eyeshadow to line my top and bottom lash lines. With Hazy again, I blended the outer corner and crease colours together, then I went back with Crystal Pink on the inner half of the lid, on my tear duct area and on my brow-bone. I lined my bottom waterline with the Clinique Quickliner for Eyes Intense in Black Honey, and applied two coats of the Clinique High Impact Mascara on my top and bottom lashes.
I filled in my eyebrows with MAC Eyeshadow in Carbon, and bronzed my face with Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel Moisturizing Bronzing Powder in #62 Terre Épice. I finished off the look with Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Roundest Raspberry, first dabbing it onto the lips, then intensifying the colour straight from the bullet to make it more long-lasting. On my nails, I applied 2 coats of the Clinique A Different Nail Enamel For Sensitive Skins in Cosmo Chic, which is a raspberry red shade with a hint of fuchsia.
Easy-peasy, right? :) Such a pretty look using colours that I don’t normally choose for my eye makeup, but a great way to subtly incorporate the Christmassy feel into your makeup. How are your Christmas preparations coming along? I’m nearly finished and I’m getting super excited for Chrismtas day!
