Issa look – Festive Glow

Alright guys – I know you totally didn’t ask for it but we’re going to do another quick glam look! I’m never happy with just one and had two different groups of people to see today. I wanted to be a little extra and change it up.

I never get to play with my green eyeshadows and I surprisingly have a few hidden in my collection. When’s a better time to do so than Christmas?

Let’s go!

Skin’s nothing to brag about today but it could be worse!


I’m going to remind you guys again, I CAN NOT BE BOTHERED. I want fast, hassle free and nothing complicated. If I have to use more than 3 makeup brushes, I quit.

I used my Too Faced Love Palette for this look. I started with a brown smokey eye, darkened the crease up with an espresso brown and packed on a shimmery green shadow. To add some extra flair, I highlighted the inner corner of my eyes with Lucky Clover from the ABH Moon Child Glow Kit.

Again, no eyeliner, no hassle – Just a good mascara and a brow pencil!


Since we’ve been doing a lot of reds over the holidays, I went with a nice nude. Baci from Stila’s Stay All Day liquid lipstick line is the perfect grey toned nude!

I’m going for the “Your lips but better look.” Zero touch ups, zero hassle.


Yes, I used a lot of products for my complexion today. I’m going for a really dewy, beautiful glow without looking shiny and sparkly.

I primed with MUFE Step 1 Smoothing Primer for a baby soft canvas.

I followed up with one of my favourite drugstore foundations – Covergirl’s Vitalist Elixir foundation. Mixing in a few drops of Peter Thomas Roth’s 24K Gold Prism Cream.

Kat Von D Lock-it Setting powder to set the whole look. This ensures my makeup is not going anywhere throughout the night. I also love this setting powder because it gives me a velvety soft finish and doesn’t leave me looking flat.

HOURGLASS Ambient Lighting Bronzer in Luminous Bronze Light as a blush/bronzer 2 in 1 to give me the warmth that my winter skin is craving!

The finished look! Under 30 minutes, super wearable and warm! A little different with the green but nothing you can’t wear everyday if you wanted to!

I hope you all had a beautiful Christmas and you’re ready for New Years!
