Drugstore Christmas Makeup Tutorial

This time next week it's Christmas. And that just sounds so crazy. I'm so exciteeedd! Another thing I can't wait to pass by is the darkest day of the year (is the correct term shortest day?), which is the 22nd of December. I filmed another video for you and was in such a hurry to have it all done with by the time it starts getting dark again. Can I add a studio light to my Christmas wishlist? It would make life (or filming) 1000x easier! 

Since my next video will be published on THE Christmas Day, I thought I'd show you now what my make up of the day will be for the special occasion.


If you had to think of three words that came to your mind about Christmas makeup, what would they be? I instantly thought red, shimmer and warmth. All to go with one of those awkward Christmas jumpers, which I personally love! 

There are three products in this look I created, which I think are kind of the backbone of the whole thing. First of all the eye shadow. L'oreal Lumiere in Gold Mania is a dream come true. I love a good ol' golden eye shadow all year round and think it's absolutely perfect for Christmas too. Gold Mania has almost like an orange tint to it so it's definitely what you'd call a warm shade. 

The other product worth mentioning is the lip liner I used. It's by Max Factor and in the shade Red Rush. The product is amazing. It feels nice on the lips, thanks to its creamy consistency. Red Rush is also the perfectly red shade. I'm in love!

And the final product is the lipstick, which just completes the whole look. I chose to use a L'oreal matte lipstick in the shade Cocorico. I did some research on the name of the shade, because I thought it sounded like a really warm place. Turns out it's the French equivalent to "cock-a-doodle-doo". Anyhow, the product is so nice! It's a matte lipstick, which I personally love, but would definitely recommend applying some lip balm before the lipstick, since it can dry your lips. But on the other hand, it stays on easily over a Christmas meal. 

For more details, watch my video. I hope you like it! :) 








Have a great weekend everybody!<3

    1. Thanks, I'm so happy you enjoyed it :) To be honest, the palette is nice, but not amazing. I only use one of the shades, which I also used in this look. They're good shades and really pigmented but the darkest one is the only one that suits me.
      Hope you've had a fab weekend xxx

  4. It is such a classic and lovely look for Christmas. And yes, studio lights make filming so much easier during winter time!

  7. You look absolutely beautiful! Omg, I totally know how you feel about losing soo much daylight. My boyfriend used to be able to take my outfit photos after he got home from work around 6pm, but now we have to scramble around on the weekend when we are both free and shoot super early! The sun sets sooo quickly now. It doesn't seem fair at all. I really love a good drugstore look and finding new products to try out. That eyeshadow looks amazing and I bet you can wear it year round! That red lipstick is also PERFECT on you! I can't wait to try my own hand at a holiday look soon :) Hope you are feeling better, Emma! You certainly look great:)

    1. Haha thanks :D A red lip is one of my faves, but I must admit I'm always worrying wether I've accidentally wiped all over my face with my hand. It would be so like me :D

    1. Many thanks Alyssa <3 i'm so glad to hear you like it! I definitely enjoy a good drugstore makeup look. I think most high end products are worth the price and if you compare them to drugstore ones, I find the longevity of a product grows as does the price. But it doesn't mean drugstore products are not worth the buy, it only means you might have to apply more makeup during the day when using them :) xxx

  26. Really beautiful look honey! You look so gorgeous!
    I can't get enough of the gorgeous shimmery eyeshadows, sooo sooo pretty.
    As for the lighting, it is a struggle hon. As much as I love winter (Christmas time, let's be honest), I do look forward to longer days & MORE light for blogging photography (and filming, in your case) any time of the day :)
    It's funny but Cocorico is what a rooster says in Ukrainian language :D
    Hope you are having a fab & exciting Christmas week, babe!

    1. Thanks girlie :) <3 Shimmer is the ay to go at the moment, at least that's what I think hehe.
      And oh yes, once Christmas is done with all I wish for is longer days :D But to stay positive, I think we're now past the shortest day of the year. Woop woop!
      Is that so? So it's the same in French and Ukranian? :D How cool! I think it sounds so cute. And like a warm place :D In Finnish a rooster says "kukko-kiekuu".
      Thanks for the lovely comment babe <3 xxx

  27. Such a beautiful makeup! I will probably be wearing a similar makeup, gold eyes and red lips are really festive. Studio light is a must, I have it on my wishlist too. It is really hard to take photos when we hardly get any light. I like your snowman earrings and also the candle holder behind you, it gives such nice shadows :)
    Today is the longest night of the year, hopefully soon we will be getting more light! xx

    1. Thanks dear :) I'm so glad you noticed my earrings, I was wondering had I hid them too well under my hair. But I love them so much! The only problem is that I can't really wear them for the rest of the year. So i've just figured I'll wear them everyday in December :D
      The candle holder is from Ikea :)
      I hope you're having a fab week gorgeous <3 xxx

  28. You look really pretty! I really like the golden eyeshadow; I've been looking for a good pigmented one but I can't seem to find any that really suit my taste. I'll definitely have to give this L'Oreal one a look. Great video :)

    1. Thank you gorgeous girl :) The l'oreal eye shadow is surprisingly good in my opinion! My fave ever golden eye shadow shade is in the Naked palette and it's called Half Baked. But if you only want one shade and at the same time save some money, then I think this one is a really good option! :)
      Hope you're week is going well <3 xxx
