Look Thursday: My Holiday Look

My Holiday Look

Welcome to Look Thursday! Today I used my Makeup Geek Ultimate Palette to put together a look perfect for Christmas.

Since I spend Christmas with my family, I wanted to do something a little more subtle than the sparkly traditional gold, red and/or greens looks that are normally used to represent this holiday. So I decided to go with purples on my lid and nude lips. I did add just a bit of sparkle to my inner corner (hey, it is Christmas after all) and used Milani’s Black Vinyl liner to spice it up a bit.

For this look I used:

  • Eyes: Makeup Geek eye shadows in Beaches and Cream, Cocoa Bear, Prom Night, Unexpected, Sensuous, Drama Queen, Wet n’ Wild Fergie eye shadow primer in (), Milani liquid liner in Black Vinyl, Urban Decay 24/7 Eye pencil in Zero, Wet n’ Wild Megalength waterproof mascara
  • Brows: Jordana eye brown pencil in Dark Brown
  • Face: Rimmel Fix & Perfect Pro Primer (check out my review here), MAC Matchmaster Foundation shade 7.5, L.A. Girl Pro.conceal HD concealer in Fawn, Rudy Kisses mineral powder in Chestnut, Black Radiance pressed powder in Rich Mahogany as a light contour, Iman Sheer Finish bronzing powder in Afterglow as a highlight, and e.l.f. cosmetics makeup setting spray
  • Lips: Nyx lip primer in Deep Nude, Nyx lip pencil in Chestnut, and Wet n’ Wild LE matte lipstick in Sweet Cream
I used: Sensuous on the lid, Drama Queen in the crease/outer corner, Unexpected as a transition color, Prom Night in the inner corner, and I mixed Cocoa Bear with Beaches and Cream on the browbone.

I hope you have a wonderful and happy holiday season!

Rimmel London Fix & Perfect Pro Primer 002


Something new that I decided to try is a face primer. I did a little research and found that Rimmel London’s face primers have a very good reputation. Rimmel’s Fix & Perfect Pro Primer 002 claims to smooth, resurface, brighten, mattify, and protect…and I have to say it did all three. It has a very light, non-sticky feel that glides on to your skin. At first I didn’t notice a big difference until later in the day when I saw that my foundation didn’t need a touch up. Also when I saw my mother, she noticed that my face appeared smoother right away and asked me what I had on. This is a product that I will definitely repurchase!
