FOTD: Christmas Dinner Makeup

On my way to the rents house

I had my first Christmas party of the season last weekend at my parents house with my dad's side of the family. I wanted to keep my makeup pretty simple, but added a little drama with a half set of falsies. I needed a look which could transition to a night look because I was going out with my girlfriends later in the evening. I wish I would have taken pictures of my makeup for the evening, but I forgot because I was having too much fun with my besties since it hasn't been just the 4 of us in forever. All I did was add a touch more MAC Typographic e/s to the corners to give my eyes more depth and drama. My foundation I applied at 1:00pm and I didn't have to touch it up before heading out at 10:00pm. I love MUFE HD and it will always be one of my go-to foundations (next to NARS Sheer Glow of course!).

  7. Thank you all for your wonderful comments!

    @glitteryeyesxx - I use a few different things. I either use Cork, Espresso, or Walnut e/s by MAC. OR I use Make Up For Ever Waterproof Eyebrow Corrector #3 with an angled brush. I have an eyebrow tutorial on my blog :)

    @Anonymous - I change the background to white and the text to black. Before it was a dark grey and black text so it would have been difficult to read... were you trying to look at it through an IPHONE? I know certain phones won't pick up the actual background of my blog... Hope this helps!
