Getting Ready for Christmas #8: The Christmas Red

Good morning, everyone! Today I'm having another Christmas themed post for Getting Ready for Christmas challenge. As you can see from the title, I skipped one task. Seventh task was Christmas wishlist and I decided not to do it. I mean, I do have some things on my WL, but I decided not to post it and do rather on theme 8. That theme was "the Christmas red" or a classic red shade for nail and lips.

I knew from the beginning of this challenge, which red will I use for lips here, because it's my favourite at the moment. I'm talking about Essence Dare to Wear. It's a gorgeous darker red lipstick with glossy finish from Essence new range of longlasting lipsticks and it's the best lipstick from this range, at least from those I tried. I already said once before, that it lasted on my lips few hours, although I ate and drink and I really recommend you to try it. I wasn't completely sure, which polish to combine with it, because I don't have any in exact shade of lipstick, so I choose Barry M Blood Orange. I already showed swatches here, so I didn't swatch it again (idk, why lisptick looks brighter on this photo, probably because of light).

I wasn't completely sure, what makeup look should I do to combine it with the lipstick, so I did something very simple - double liner. I decided to add a golden liner, too, not just the black one, because golden color is a Christmas color and this should be a Christmas look.

Producst I used:
- Essence I Love Extreme mascara
- Catrice Ink Waterproof Eyeliner Don't Move
- Catrice eyebrow set (for brows)

- Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation 02 Vanilla
- Essence Stay All Day Longlasting Concealer 02 Soft Beige
- Essence Compact Powder Soft Beige
- Essence Metal Glam Gold Digger highlighting powder
- Essence Be Loud Ap-ri(c)ot blush

- Essence Dare to Wear


Whic is your favourire red shade for lips and nails? What do you think about my choice? Thank you for reading!

    Ful mi je všeč zlat eyeliner. In cel makeup look je lep, seveda :)

    1. A res? V bistvu nimam iste teme za računalnik in mobitel, ker te mobitel ne podpira, mogoče to kaj vpliva. Ne vem, se ne razumem v te stvari najbolj.
      Hvala. :)

  4. Zelo lep makeup:) Ta odtenek rdeče šminke ti zelo paše:)
