Happy Christmas everyone! I know im just a little late with this post but i didnt have time to post a blog until now. I've been at my parents house the past few days & now im back home so i uploaded my photos. I had a wonderful day & i hope each & everyone of you opened your hearts to your family & friends. The presents are nice, but its the season of giving & appreciation. Dont take it for granted :)

My look on Christmas was a dark smokey eye, using mainly "scene" & "plumage" from MAC. I've noticed that "scene" doesnt photograph very well on myself or clients, so keep that in mind when using this colour!

  1. prime your lids with MAC "painterly" paint pot
  2. using a 217 brush, sweep MAC "plumage" into the crease using windshield wiper motions
  3. create a C shape on the outer corner of each eye
  4. next take MAC "scene" with the 239 & pat this colour onto the lids, blending with "plumage"
  5. with a 214 brush, take MAC "carbon" & smudge a little but into the very outer corner of "plumage" 
  6. blend with your 217 brush
  7. line your lower lash line with "plumage" using the 214 brush
  8. using a MATTE highlight colour, for me this is MAC "blanc type" & blend out the edges of "plumage" with a big fluffy brush (i use a "doe foot" brush from
  9. apply MAC "shroom" along the brow bone 
  10. with a 275, apply MAC "white frost" to the inner corner of your eyes
  11. fill in your brows
  12. using a black eyeliner pencil, line your tightline and waterline, i used Urban Decay "24/7 eyeliner pencil" in zero- smudge it!
  13. using any black eyeliner (gel, cream, liquid, pencil) line your upper lash line, i used ELF "studio cream liner" in black
  14. apply your favourite mascara, i used Sephora "lash plumper"
  1. first prime your skin using clean fingers with either a moisturizer or foundation primer, i used Clinique "dramaticlly different moisturizing lotion"
  2. apply your foundation using a 190 brush or a sponge, i used MAC "studio sculpt" in NC15 with a damp sponge
  3. next conceal under your eyes and any imperfections with a 194 brush or your fingers & dap into the skin, i used MAC "pro longwear concealer" in NW15
  4. then set your face makeup with a face powder using a 150 brush, i used Rimmel "stay matte pressed powder"
  5. next take your contour colour with a 168 brush and contour the hollows of your cheekbones and anywhere else you'd like, i used Coastal Scents "dark camo quad" in the darkest shade
  6. apply with a fluffy dome brush (i used the "blush" brush from Visage), MAC "bite of an apple" blush (limited edition) to the apples of your cheeks & blend up along your cheekbone
  7. finally dust a little of Too Faced "snow bunny bronzer" onto the top of your cheekbones up to your temple as a highlight with a 188 brush
  1. prime your lips with a lip primer or lip balm, i used California Mango lip balm
  2. line & fill in your lips with a blue-based red lip liner, i used a generic brand
  3. next apply MAC "cyndi lauper" lipstick
  4. apply Sephora "bronzed beauty" lipgloss over top
