12 Days of Christmas – Day 3 – “Modern Mrs. Claus”

Happy Hump Day beauties!

We are so excited to bring to you one of our favourite looks of ALL time. The talent of all cosmetic art comes from the creativity in the artist, passion in their heart and precision in their hand. I am the most impatient person ever, which is probably why I’m atrocious at makeup, but throughout this process Jen held her grace and patience as she carefully layered each line to produce this look.

Beginning with the skin, we discovered the magical formula to perfectly match my skin tone is a combination of  brown, yellow and green (I am apparently 1/3 hulk). Jen used Make Up For Ever’s 12 Colour Flash palette to colour correct the regular foundation we use (being Revlon’s Photoready Foundation in “005”). She set the foundation once again with ELF’s HD Setting Powder and moved on to les yeux.

Revlon’s Photoready Eye Primer and Brightener and our favourite white flakey stuff,  ELF’s HD Undereye Setting Powder were used under my eye to make me look fresh and awake and then we got right into the fun stuff!

This process consisted of application of creme colour and then setting with powder and waiting because otherwise, the cream liners would become one smudged mess. Jen started off by applying MAC’s Fluidline Gel Eye Liner in “Blacktrack” while using her second most boasted about product, MAC’s #266 brush and then applied Cinema Secrets – Light Touch Powder – Colourless over top to set. We waited in order to avoid the liners smudging into each other, and she did the same to apply the red liner (Make Up For Ever – 12 Flash Colour Case – “Red 024”) and the white liner (Make Up For Ever – 12 Flash Colour Case – “White 010”).


To touch up the skin, Jen used MAC’s Mineralize Skin Finsh in “Dark” and used it as a blush to put the emphasis on the bold lip and eye makeup.

For lips, MAC Pro Longwear Lip Liner – “He Said, She Said” and  Make Up For Ever’s 12 Flash Colour Case in “Red 024” were used.


Jen curled my lashes and  applied Rimmel’s VolumeFlash ScandalEyes Waterproof Mascara in “001 Black” and filled in the eyebrows with ELF’s Eyebrow Kit in “Light”.

Waterproof mascara holds the curl better, but when it comes to everyday use, stick to regular mascara because waterproof will dry your lashes out.

We slicked my now very short hair straight, and tadaaa!
