I started out my makeup with mineral foundation from Mineral Hygienics in the shade Light. I provides decent coverage for any imperfections you may have, but still feels like you have nothing on the skin. I reviewed this foundation ages ago and still enjoy it.

Using a kabuki brush, I buffed this all over my face, neck, and eye lids. This is a great eyeshade primer that will help eyeshadow last longer and appear more vivid.

Christmas Day Makeup LookFor the eyes, I chose the Coastal Scents Revealed 2 palette. This has been featured several times on my site now and I just can’t get enough. It’s perfect for the holidays, weddings, formal occasions, or just “jeans and t-shirt” days. I love it! I started with this light grey, charcoal brown. I blended it lightly into the crease and increased intensity on the outer corners. Blending is the key here.

Working outward, I blended a little of this rosy/copper gold on the outer 3rd of the lid and swept it into the white gold and outer charcoal brown.

Next, I applied mascara and my favorite lashes at the moment, Salon Perfect Demi Wispies.

Christmas Day Makeup LookFor brows, I used my trusty Paula Dorf 2+1 for brows in Brunette. I then applied Paula Dorf Cheek Color in the shade Passion. This satiny/matte shade is so gorgeous! Perfect flush for the holidays.

Christmas Day Makeup LookFinally, I applied 2 lip products. L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paint in Blushing and Whimsical for the perfect pink pout. For night time you can pair this up with a bright red lipstick and shimmery lipgloss.
