Blogmas Day 24 - My Christmas Look

Merry Christmas Eve! I can't believe it is the last day of Blogmas today and that I managed to blog everyday! I've really enjoyed blogging everyday although I'm also looking forward to getting back to blogging every other day with the occasional extra post! Although Blogmas is officially over, I'm going to try and blog everyday for the rest of December. 

But for today, I thought I would show you my chosen Christmas look for this year. As some of you may know it was my birthday on 13th December and I received both the Real Techniques Core Collection and Starter Set. I've used RT brushes for about the last year now but finally got my mitts on these! I also received Benefit's World Famous Neutrals Kit in Easiest Nudes Ever so decided to use this to create my look. 

I think this box is so cute and really handy to take on holiday as you can create so many looks with just these few shades. I also really like that you get two cream shadows and that all the shades are a mix of shimmery and matte. Now for a closer look at the shades…

L-R: R.S.V.P., No Pressure!, Call My Buff, Pinky Swear, Thanks A Latte & Quick Look Busy

I think these shades are beautiful and love that you get a mix of finishes. Now for the look I created…

Please excuse my natural hair!

I used R.S.V.P all over my lid before blending Thanks A Latte into my crease and sweeping Call My Buff over my brow bone. This was the daytime look recommended in the leaflet attached inside the box, however I then added a touch of Quick Look Busy to the outer V. I've worn this look for the last couple of days and I am really impressed with the lasting power of these eyeshadows. The past 2 days I've had my makeup on for over 12 hours and my eyeshadow hasn't creased at all!

Other products I used to create this look include:
Garnier Moisture Match for Normal to Dry Skin
Nivea Daily Essentials Hydration Primer for Normal/Combination Skin
MAC Mineralize Moisture SPF 15 Foundation in NW20
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Light (2)
Sleek Blush in Antique
Body Shop Shimmer Waves in Blush (light waves to highlight)
Max Factor Clump Defy Mascara in Black/Brown
Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Black
MAC Eye Brows in Lingering
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Glam Plum Fulham

It's only now that I write out the products that it seems like quite a lot but it didn't take me very long to create the look as the majority of it was my day to day makeup just with different eyeshadow and lipstick!

What do you think of this look? Do you use any of these products? Have you decided what look you're going for on Christmas day?
