Christmas Makeup Look | Avon


Is it too soon to talk about Christmas looks? Because in the next few posts I have prepared a few ideas that go along the same theme. I mean, I have to write about it and test it soon enough for you to see and decide whether to use some of the suggestions given to you (or recommend me some ;)). For today I did a simple and classic makeup and nail look, using mostly Avon products. 

Nails
Two of the nail varnishes couldn't have been more suited for the holidays. Red and sparkly silver screams Christmas! I couldn't decide if I wanted to use one or the other seperately and in the end I applied the silver only on my ring finger to give the look a pop. Silver shade is called Starry Sky while on the rest of my nails I used Red Bombshell from Perfect Reds collection. What is amazing and has been my ultimate favourite ever since I got it, is also a product from Avon- Quick dry nail spray. After I paint my nails, I use one spray of the product on each nail. Then I wait a few seconds and voila! My nails are dry! It has been a 'life saver' in the time-department. I don't need to wait excruciatingly long minutes anymore which is satisfying. 

Makeup
When it comes to the entire look, I kept it simple. I applied a full-face foundation and I used a black liner close to my lash line that I then smudged to achieve a soft look. I used two extra natural (one grey, other brown) eyeshadows on my crease and eyelids from Beauty Bay eyeshadow palette. The highlight here is a classic red lipstick, called Berry Berry Nice and this one too is from the Perfect Reds edition. I first applied Essence lip liner to help lipstick stay in place. Its duration is acceptable but I'd recommend to keep the lipstick somewhere close for a reapplication. It has a bit of a shimmer but it is visible only from up close. It dries up after some time and appears more matte but otherwise gives more of a glossier look. It has a pink undertone and if you prefer only all-pink shades, you can opt for 'Extreme Mauve' Ultra Colour Bold Lipstick (same brand). Its shade can be seen in one of the photos.
