Holiday makeup routine

Here are all of the bronzed and glowy products that I have been using for my Holiday ready makeup routine. This is how I did my makeup for our Christmas card photos and the colors are perfect for upcoming Holiday parties, weddings and fun date nights! ūüôā The best part is, all of the beauty products I use can be ordered online from Nordstrom making it easy one stop shopping that arrives at your doorstep!

  1. To prep the skin I start with the Saint Laurent blur primer in Gold. This quick little step really helps smooth your skin and keeps your makeup in place. My mom got my sisters and I hooked on this primer years ago!
  2. I apply Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral Bb Cream in the shade BB3 with my Artis brush in no. 10. I love this Bb Cream because it feels really lightweight but still has good coverage and a pretty glow. I like this better than foundation because it does not feel or look heavy.
  3. To set everything I use Charlotte Tilbury flawless setting powder in the shade light.
  4. For a pretty sun kissed look I apply Nars bronzer in the shade Laguna. I use this big fluffly bronzer brush to apply it in a 3 on each side of my face and blend.
  5. To brighten the under eye area I use Bobbi Brown skin serum concealer in the color Porcelain. I recommend going a shade or two lighter than you would concealer to really brighten the area. To blend it in, I use my Artis brush. This under eye serum concealer has been my favorite since high school because it is really lightweight and easy to blend in.
  6. For a pop of pink blush I use Chanel in the shade Rose Initial with this brush.
  7. For eye shadow I always stick to neutrals. I apply the lightest eye color under my brow to brighten, the medium golden color to the entire lid and the darker brown in a V shape on the outer lid for a bit contour. This pretty eye palette from MAC is perfect for a compact travel set. For a little extra sparkle dot this cream shadow in Champagne on your lids!
  8. I set my brows with clear brow gel to keep them in place.
  9. Next I use MAC liner in the color Brownborder.
  10. I curl my lashes before applying Lancome Lash Idole mascara. I LOVE this mascara because it does not clump like many others.
  11. Finally I use Lancome le crayon lip liner in the color Caramel and Mac lipstick in Blankety for a very natural look on my lips.
  12. Blend everything together and ready for a fun night out or special photos! ūüôā

I use this light up makeup mirror every time I do my makeup and have had it for years! This would be a great Christmas gift idea for mom, mother in law or sisters!

These are the only hair ties I use and I think they would be a great stocking stuffer in addition to any of the beauty products above!
