Christmas Day Makeup Picks | EmmyWritesAbout

Can you believe Christmas is only 3 days away?! It is coming so quick, this month has flown by! I am really looking forward to Christmas for the first time in quite a few years. I am really excited to do my makeup too. I have fallen in love with so many new products this year and it was easy to choose my Christmas Day Makeup.

The Ordinary High Performance Primer | £3.90 | Link

I am really loving this primer, I have nearly run out and need to order a new one. It is a thicker primer that melts into your skin like a moisturiser but it leaves a slightly tacky base. It blurs pores and makes a smooth base. I find it works well on my combination skin.

Lottie London Selfie Ready Foundation | £6.95 | Link

This is 100% my favourite find of the year by far. It is a medium coverage foundation that just makes my skin look flawless. It controls my oilyness the best any foundation ever has! It doesn’t cling to dry patches either… honestly it is a miracle in a bottle! I am actually on my third bottle.

Too Faced Born This Way Concealer | £20.00 | Link

I think I have just enough of this left to use it on Christmas Day. I need to order a new one asap! It is extremely lightweight and creamy. It blends like a dream and doesn’t look heavy under the eyes. It gives medium coverage and the shade range is amazing!

Benefit Hoola Quickie Contour Stick | £23.50 | Link

I have become a massive fan of cream contouring this year. I find using a cream contour product then a powder bronzer on top creates a flawless base. I find using a powder contour and bronzer can sometimes look a little too powdery and dry looking. This contour stick is the creamiest product ever! It melts like butter. Review and swatch here.

Mesauda Baked Bronzer 

I am so annoyed that this one isn’t available any longer in the UK! It is one I have had in my collection for a while but only started using it more the past few months. It has tiny flecks of gold in it which give your skin the most gorgeous glow! It seems very similar to the Milani Baked Bronzers which have a slight shimmer to them. I am loving a slight glow to my bronzer.

Lottie London Drake Blush | £4.95 | Link

As you can see it is well loved as the lid has broken off! I use this nearly daily and have done for the past 4-5 months! It is a subtle pink/nude shade which goes with every makeup look.

Topshop Afterglow Highlighter | £12.00 | Link

My oh my such a pretty highlighter. If you are after a intense glow look no further. I always have an intense highlight and this has become a go to. With having pale skin I have struggled to find a gold highlight that works for my skin tone. This one is a very pale gold and looks stunning!

Coloured Raine Queen of Hearts Eyeshadow Palette | £45.00 | Link

I have fallen in love with a palette, especially the foiled shades! I got this in the black Friday sale for £30! The shades are so buttery and easy to blend. They last all day on my eyes even without a primer. Full review and swatches here.

Peaches and Cream Pigment “Gatsby” | £6.95 | Link

These pigments are unbelievable. They are so smooth and apply so well. I am going to use Royal Highness from the coloured raine palette with this on top to give it that extra pop. I find peaches and cream makeup so underrated.

Peaches and Cream No.20 False Lashes | £4.99 | Link

I have tried some of their other lashes and fallen in love but as soon as I saw these I knew I needed them for Christmas Day. They are super fluttery and extremely lightweight. 

L’Oreal Infallible Megagloss “Disco Ball” | £6.99 | Link

Since buying this I have made Kasie (KasieBeauty) and Dena (TheDenaEdit) both buy this because of how beautiful it is! If you want a very sparkly gold gloss look no further! It can be used on it’s own or as a lip topper. I don’t find these glosses sticky either. I own some more shades which I will do a post on soon.

Sephora Liquid Lipstick Nude Blush 32 | $14.00 | Link

I already owned one of these lipsticks from when I went to New York but I picked some more up in my latest Sephora order. I love the formula of these and this shade is your perfect nude. When it is paired with the Disco Ball Gloss it looks stunning!
