Feeling Festive

There's something about a red lip that makes me get into the festive spirit... and I don't even celebrate Christmas!

To be honest, I enjoy the feeling leading up to the big day since everyone is happy and there is usually secret Santa (which means presents!). However, Christmas Day isn't just a normal day in our household, even though we don't celebrate it. It is actually my parents wedding anniversary, so we usually have a dinner with friends and family - it is still something to look forward to!

Anyways, I thought it was most appropriate to post a classic and celebratory red lip look because for some reason, everyone gets their red lipsticks out around this time of the year.

Starting with the actual lipstick of choice. Now, I rarely wear a red lip but when I do it is 90% of the time this particular one. This is the GOSH Velvet Touch Lipstick in the shade Lambada (60). It is a cool-toned red that isn't too bright or too dark. It does have a creamy formula so it isn't matte but I prefer that because otherwise my lips get too dry. 

You can't wear a red lip without a lipliner, of course. I particularly like the Rimmel Exaggerate Lipliner in Red Diva (24).

To create a glow to the skin I used MAC's Mineralised Skin Finish in Global Glow and No7's Lash Impact Mascara for an intense lash look (the beautiful packaging was limited edition!)

I feel like the red lip, highlighter and bold lashes is what made this look instantly Christmassy. More details of what else I used is below.
