Baci Lips and Matte Shadows

2015 holiday makeup look stila liquid lipstick baci

I've been more experimental with lip colours this year and have sought out to discover the new favourite lipstick - a liquid lipstick. I 100% wouldn't wear any other type of lipstick for the holidays because, face it, holidays means a lot of food, drinking, and lipstick smearing if you aren't careful! A liquid lipstick will last, and with a colour like Stila's Baci, I can be confident in because it isn't a stand out colour. It is a mauve nude and perfect for days you don't want to worry about touching up a bright red lipstick!

Ps. Baci means kiss in Italian. Fun fact!

I know it's typical to have a red lipstick for the holidays (because red + green are Xmas colours, obvi!) but I most likely will be sticking with a mauve neutral like this one for holiday parties. A shade like Baci is very 'in' lately and totally acceptable to wear just about anywhere.

For the rest of my makeup, I went with a simple full coverage look. I used the Make Up For Ever new Ultra HD Foundation and mixed it with my trusty Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation. I've been doing this lately to get a natural but full coverage look. I've been obsessed with my Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Palette lately, so I did a simple matte look on the eyes with a hint of shimmer over top of the crease using my Urban Decay Naked. A strong winged liner with Stila's Liquid Liner and perfected brows using Annabelle Skinny Brow Liner and Browshow completes the look.
