Festive makeup looks from Maybelline

 
If you’re still deciding which makeup look you’re going to rock on Christmas Day, I’m here to help! Whether you want to rock something bright and pink, or something sexy and smouldering – I’ve got you covered! These two festive looks from the clever team at Maybelline are easy to recreate and will have you looking glam in no time!



Kiss My Sass
Kiss My Sass is Gigi’s look this Christmas and I think it’s perfect for Christmas Day. For this look you pair a dewy base with a killer contour. Use Maybelline’s Master Contour V Stick* to create the cheekbones you dream of, by striping the dark shade in the jaw line. Swap over the stick and use the lighter side to highlight all the places the sun would normally hit the face. The Master Contour V Stick is a cream formula, which you can gently buff into the skin with any kind of brush – which creates a lovely natural look. 



Next use Maybelline’s Rock Nudes Eyeshadow Palette* to create an eyeshadow look which adds a little bit of drama. What I love about this palette is that there is a real mixture of light and dark shades, so you can actually create something really subtle, or amp it up for something more dramatic.  I personally love to take one of the pearly shades all over the lid and then blend one of the purple hues into the crease. It’s a great work-friendly smokey eye! Finish the eye look with lashings of the Lash Sensational Intense Black Mascara*, this is actually one of my favourite all-time mascaras. The mascara adds definition, length and volume, for some extreme lashes.



Pout Of Control
Pout Of Control is Jordan’s festive look and this one for me would make a lovely look for Christmas Eve. This look also starts with a dewy base, but this time it’s all about strobing (which let’s be honest – is my favourite trend from this year). Maybelline’s Master Strobing Stick* is a great companion for achieving a strobe-inspired makeup look on a little budget. Simply take one of the strobing sticks (this one is the more golden hue) and stripe it on the cheekbones, brow bone and down the centre of the nose. Tap it into the skin for a dramatic highlight, or blend it into the skin with a brush for something more subtle. 



Now it’s time for the eyes and this time we’re using Maybelline’s Nude Palette*. Use the palette to add warmth and shimmer to the eyes – just like the other look you have loads of different options to play with. I personally love using the golden shade (third from the left on the bottom row) all over the lid – this is a great one-stop-shop when you’re in a rush to get to work. If you have more time you can experiment by blending loads of shades together for a lovely warm makeup look. Finish the Pout Of Control look with a sweep of matte lipstick, for Jordan’s look you take Maybelline’s Color Sensational Matte Lipstick in Midnight Merlot*. This gives you a beautiful deep purple colour on the lips, but I feel like you could pair this look with absolutely any lipstick!  



So there you have two beautiful make looks to get you through Christmas and New Year. I’d love to know which of the two looks is your favourite, is it Pout Of Control or Kiss My Sass? What are your go-to makeup products on Christmas Day? Do you go all out or keep it all low key?
