It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Well, technically we are still a month away but that hasn’t stopped me from getting into the Christmas mood. With a handful of Christmas parties that I need to attend, I’ve been troubling over the makeup looks I should go for, the outfits I should wear and pretty much every and anything else. 

Scrolling through the Beauty category on Lazada brought me to Revlon and I’ve never been more thankful than this!


I have a rather concrete plan of how I’m going to craft all of my looks. But I’m gonna leave you with a list of recommendations so you are not limited to my amateur makeup inspiration and are free to try out the looks that fit you best. Armed with the products of high quality, I was Insta-photo-ready and poised to live boldly.

Primer

If Gal Gadot says the secret to lasting makeup is a beautiful base, then the secret to lasting makeup is a beautiful base. Get started with the Revlon PhotoReady Perfecting Primer that will get you ready in no time. Remember to give your primer a few minutes to set in before moving on to foundation!

Foundation

Moving on to foundation, different skin types call for a different foundation. As I have oily skin, my personal favourite will steer towards the Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Combination/Oily Skin. The alternative will be the Revlon PhotoReady Candid Natural Finish Anti-Pollution Foundation for Normal/Dry Skin.

Concealer

For those who are troubled over the concealer shade that best matches your skin tone, Revlon has packed them into a single bundle just for you. The bundle also includes a Super Lustrous lipstick so you can match your lip color to your skin tone and avoid any makeup mishaps!

Contour

Creating the perfect canvas doesn’t stop at foundation and concealer. Bring some dimension to your face with the Revlon PhotoReady Insta-Sculpt Duo and because highlighters are pretty much my entire life, give your cheekbones a further boost with the Revlon PhotoReady Insta Fix Highlighting Stick Blush On. We promise you have never looked better than this!

Blush

For a pop of color, use the Revlon PhotoReady Cream Blush for a natural and healthy glow on the apples of your cheeks. If you’re not sure where the apples are, give your cheeks a light pinch and they will show! I prefer to match the shades of my blush and lipstick, so depending on your lipstick shade, pick a corresponding shade so the blush won’t look out of place.

Setting Powder

To finish off the perfect canvas, dust your face lightly with the Revlon PhotoReady Candid Anti-Pollution Setting Powder to set your base makeup so it won’t melt away during your Christmas party.

Windows to your Soul

The eyes are the windows to the soul and it is essential that you nail this aspect. With your brows on fleek, a killer smokey eye, and waterproof mascara, you can party the night away without any worry of smudging your eye makeup! 

Eyebrows

There are many different textures and brow style that you can go for. For the ultimate glam look, I recommend using a combination of the below products to achieve get your brows on fleek. Start off by marking the ideal brow shape with the Revlon Colorstay Eyebrow Pencil, then fill in the sparse areas with the powdered Revlon Colorstay Eyebrow Kit. I recommend adding in a few short and swift strokes with the Eyebrow Pencil first to create the illusion of brow hairs before fixing your brows with the Revlon Colorstay Eyebrow Mousse

The Eyes

On to the eyes, this is one of my greatest fears as it is the hardest to perfect. A good smokey eye doesn’t have to be limited to grey tones that make it seem like you got punched. Rather, go for warmer tones with the Revlon Colorstay Looks Book Eyeshadow Palette, Maverick and finish off with a cat-eye with the Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner with Smudger. I particularly recommended the one with a smudger simply because it helps add on to that smokey eye that you are going for. A few strokes of the Revlon Ultimate All-in-One Mascara will give you luscious and long-lasting mascara for the night ahead.

And finally, the lips!

To finish the look, apply a few swipes of bestseller Revlon Super Lustrous Live Boldly Lipstick in She-Nomenon, a shade I highly recommend, for the perfect, glam girl party look. If you prefer matte lips, then go for the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Mousse Hyper Matte (which won an award for Allure’s Best of Beauty 2019) which is available in 13 different shades.
