Classic Holiday Party Make Up

Hello everyone!

So since Christmas is only a few days away and New Years is coming up soon after I thought I would share my go to holiday make up look that I actually did last week for my office Holiday party.

-So starting with the base since I have combination skin, I always use primer in my T-zone because that area tends to get oily throughout the day and I have this mini Benefit Porefessional, which is really great at keeping the oiliness at bay. 
-I'm not a huge fan of foundation, I feel like it feels too heavy on my skin so I tend to stick to BB or CC creams and I absolutely love this one from Covergirl, it's actually a colab between Olay and Covergirl so it has serum in it as well. It's really great for your skin and as soon as I apply it, my skin tone immediately evens out and get a very subtle glowy look. 
-I love the Too Faced 'Chocolate Soleil' bronzer to sculpt out my round face and create some shadow to give the illusion of cheekbones. 
-Benefit's Rockateur is my favorite blush at the moment, on my skin tone it gives me a bronzey/flushed/highlighted look so it's an all in one blush for me.
-I always want a dewy and glowy finish to my skin so I'm definitely guilty about getting heavy handed with the highlighter and I recently purchased the Becca skin perfecter in Opal and I'm absolutely in love with it, it gives such a beautiful sheen to your face.

-My dark circles are horrible so I'm always on the hunt for a good concealer and I recently got the IT cosmetics 'Bye, bye under eye' in my Ipsy box and it's amazing at hiding my dark circles! It has a very thick consistency so a little goes a long way and I just warm it up between my fingers and apply it. 
-I chose to stick with original Naked palette for the shimmery shades and this Dior mini palette in 646 30 Montaige for the matte shades. I kept it really simple, just used the medium brown shade from the Dior pallette in my crease and half baked from the Naked palette all over my lid. For highlight on the brow bone and in my inner corners I used virgin from the Naked palette.
-I used the Urban Decay 24/7 glide on pencil in Zero-black to tight line.
-I wanted to do a dramatic wing with this look so used my trusty Lancome artliner for that, it's a felt tip liner and I just find it so easy to use.
-Moving on to mascara, my favorite lately has been Dior show iconic over curl, I always tend to go very dramatic with my mascara and I love this one, it gives a lot of length, volume and curls the lashes without clumping them up.

Finally I definitely wanted red lips with this look and I have been loving the Revlon Colorburst Matte balm in 'Standout', it's a red with slight orange undertones and is matte but doesn't dry out your lips at all.

Hope you guys enjoyed my post and comment below and let me know what make up looks you've been loving lately.

Happy Holidays!
