Everyday Makeup | Festive Twist

I thought I'd share a super simple makeup look with you guys that's perfect to pair with any dark or bold lip colour for this time of year. I personally like to wear this during the day since it's light eye makeup and I usually wear a smokey eye at night timeout you do you! You could also wear this for a festive party maybe with some winged liner!
I started by doing just my standard face makeup and filling in my eyebrows which I don't change on a daily basis. Next I took my Urban Decay Naked palette which I use most days to do my eyes. From the palette I mixed the 2 lightest colours 'virgin' and 'sin' and applied that all over my lids. This just really brightens up my eyes. Next I took 'buck' and blended that through my crease to add some shape and depth. 'Buck' is such a perfect crease shade, I tend to use it in almost all my looks as it just blends everything together so so well. 
Finally instead of using an eyeliner I decided to take the darkest colour 'creep' on an angled brush and run it along my lash line then blend over it with a fluffy brush. This is a lot quicker than using a liquid liner but still add some definition and makes your lashes look fuller. With that same fluffy brush I just go over the whole eye and make sure everything's blended together. 
Then I curled my lashes and applied some of my absolute favourite masacra, the Maybelline Big Eyes Volum'Express in waterproof. This holds a curl perfectly and stays on all day long. For everyday I don't normally wear bottom mascara just because I like to keep it very minimal and keep my under eyes very clean and awake looking. 
Then for my lips I used a favourite amoung all beauty euthanuas', it's MAC's 'Diva' lipstick. This is a beautiful deep matte red shade which is quite vampy. It stays on really well for being such a dark colour and considering it's a matte formula it isn't overly drying on the lips. I mentioned before on another post but I good dupe for this lipstick is Rimmel London's lip liner in 063 'Black Tulip', it's a much cheaper alternative! 

What is your go to lip colour for this time of year?
Hope you guys enioyed!
Love, Julie xx
