Christmas MakeUP by Malcom Fernandes: Be The Christmas Cherry.


Here is a very classy and cheerful make up look for the holiday season, purely inspired by the colors of Christmas featuring our sweet friend and model Priya Ninawe.
A Lasting Foundation for a night long party:
Taking in consideration the persistent humidity and the energy you will be spending  during a Christmas gathering, we suggest that you prime your skin first with a moisturising primer then apply your foundation routine. A matte finish would be the best for this look, and to set your foundation and concealer apply a slight amount of translucent powder.
The final touch would definitely be a warm tone of blush and DON’T FORGET THE HIGHLIGHTER !!!

A sparkling green smokey: 
We decided to go with a smokey eyes makeup because it gives the eyes more definition and structure for a piercing look. Green is the color of the season, and the best part is that it suits everyone. You can variate the shades of green within your makeup. We decided to pair it with golden glitter since it is a festive night, so don’t be shy and go all out with the GLITTER !
Now for mascara, it is up to you to either apply several coats of mascara if you already have thick lashes, or for those of you who have thin lashes you may as well apply some falsies.
The classic red:
For the lips we decided to go with a very classy matte red. As you can see the shade we used is close to burgundy since it reminds us of the good red wine we share on Christmas.  For those who have small lips it helps to use a lip-liner before applying the lipstick, it actually helps keeping the lipstick longer on your lips.

Small Tip:  Match your nail color to your lipstick, it’s always a classy thing to do.
