While my outfit for Christmas dinner with the family was a no brainer the suiting makeup was a bit harder to decide. I usually go with a very light look on my daily basis. Just a bit of concealer, mascara and a tad of bronzer and I’m ready for the day. But for the festive dinner with the family I wanted to look a bit more made up, so I decided an strong eyeliner and red lips would be it. Which is the step-by-step look I’m sharing here today.
1. Eyeliner: Right now I’m loving They’re real eyeliner by Benefit. For this look I’m using the brown one as it makes just a bit softer line. Few weeks ago I learned a foolproof technique how to master the perfect line. Start off on the highest point of your upper lash line and draw a straight line till the outer corner of the eye. Now fill in the space between the lash line and the eyeliner line. Draw by dotting the eyeliner next to your lashes the line until the inner corner of your lid. And you eyeliner is ready.
2. Lashes: I always use an eyelash curler to curl the lashes. This helps to open the eyes and make the lashes look longer. Next is mascara. I’m currently testing the New Eye Opening Mascara by Bobbi Brown and really enjoying the outcome of really full lashes.
4. Cheeks: here I tried to go for a bit less not to look like I had tons of makeup on. Just a tad of bronzer and I’m ready here.
5. Lips: here I went for a very bright and my favorite red by Bobbi Brown. It’s the Art Stick in Harlow Red and my most favorite out of all reds. To make my lips look a bit fuller I added a little bit of highlighter over the middle of my upper lip. And if you have any edges that are not so perfect, just use a bit of concealer.
Et voila! Der Look für das Weihnachtsdinner mit der Familie ist feritg!
