12 Days Of Christmas – Day 6 – “Meet The Parents”

It’s the weekend (finally!) and as busy as you all may be scrambling to get all of your christmas shopping done, I can bet you 200 candy canes that I’m at an even worse spot. We are sooo excited to present to you these new set of images which have been upgraded just a bit (by like 1000x) by our partner in crime Danielle Renea Photography.

Today we bring to you one of our more simpler looks. We all know that you’ll be visiting a handful of family this weekend and we thought we’d make it a tad easier for you when you step onto the in-law property. This simple and sweet and innocent looking profile is bound to have them convinced you woke up like that 😉.

We started off with Revlon PhotoReady Eye Primer + Brightener and MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NW15 on the skin and sponged on some Revlon PhotoReady Foundation in 005  with an added a touch of green, yellow and brown from Make Up For Ever’s 12 Flash Colour Case, and set it with ELF High Definition Powder. Jen ran out of her usual ELF HD Under Eye Setting Powder so we switched to our alternative Cinema Secrets Light Touch Powder in Colourless.

On the face she used MAC Sculpting Powder in “Bone Beige” to contour my facial features. Jen used MAC Creamblend blush in “Something Special” on the cheeks and applied it using her fingers to really work it in and ensure it was well blended to give it that super soft blush look.

On ze brows went on ELF Eyebrow Kit in Dark.

Jen used MAC Pro Longwear Lip Liner and coloured my entire lip in the shade “In Anticipation” with Estée Lauder Pure Colour High Gloss lipgloss in “07 Flashdance”.
_DSC2962_DSC2956Jen applied MAC 24 Hour Extend Eye Base to prime lids and MAC eyeshadow in “Blanc Type” over the entire eyelid as a base. Next up she placed MAC Eyeshadow in “Free to Be” (the pink tone one) softly in the crease. MAC Eyeshadow in “Soft Brown” was blended in the crease with “Free to Be” focusing on the lower portion of the crease. MAC’s “Plum Dressing” was lightly applied to the outer “V” of the crease.

_DSC2964Après ça, Jen lined the top with MAC Fluidline Eyeliner in “Blacktrack” with a MAC #266 brush and extended the lashes with Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Mascara in 001 Black. For that innocent look, we added some individual false eyelashes only to the outer 1-3 of Ardell’s Individuals in “Flare Medium”.

And ta daaa!
