Christmas Makeup Look : Hot Red Lips, Shimmery Eyes

Holiday Inspired Look

Come Christmas and everything looks Red and White… Not the ciggie brand, the colours red and white!!!

So the look I am doing today is inspired by the Holiday fervour. Hope you like it. So here we go!!

Here are the things I used:
For Face:

  1. MAC Studio Finish Concealer
  2. MaxFactor Age Renew Foundation
  3. MAC Mineralize Skinfinish natural
  4. MaxFactor Cream Blush in Soft Candy
  5. Colorbar Blush in True Gold

Face makeup

For Eyes:

  1. MAC Cream Colour Base in Hush
  2. Urban Decay Eye Shadow in “Midnight Cowboy Rides again”
  3. First and last colour from Maybelline Eye Studio Colour plush Eye shadow- “Give me Gold” (A soft gold for highlighting and a dark shimmery brown for outer corner)
  4. Chambor Black Liquid eye liner
  5. Maybelline Colossal Volume Express mascara

For Lips:
1. Colorbar Lip Liner in True Red
2. Inglot lipstick (Red one from the palette).


So let’s start:
1. Start with base makeup. A flawless face is must for red lips.


2. Prime your lids. I have applied MAC Cream Colour Base on lids right upto the brow bone.


3. Apply a shimmery silver/cream shadow on the entire lid. You can use loose shimmer on top of a neutral shadow too.


4. Apply a very thin line of black liquid eye liner on the upper lash line.


5. Take a pencil brush and dip it into a dark shimmery brown.

6. Draw a line with this brown shadow over the black liner to soften it.
7. Wing this brown shadow right upto the end of the eyebrow. Blend the shadow in outer corner too.


8. Apply a soft white golden shadow just under the brow. Blend everything together.

9. Do up both the eyes. It should look something like this.

11. Line your lips with a red lip liner and fill them in completely.

12. Apply a bold red colour on the lips.

13. Apply a bright coral/red blush along the cheekbone. Top it up with a highlighter, especially on the apples of the cheeks. I am using MF Soft Candy in the contours and along the cheek bones and using CB true gold as highlighter.

Merry Christmas

  9. me liking your red lips mrun. and your hair best :toothygrin: me too wants a cream blsuh even though my skin is oily but m always so confused between inglot and maxfactor and can never decide :((

  10. Thanks sweetie. :-*

    Well natasha.. The consistency of both is very different… Inglot one is like a cream and MF one is like lipstick…

    I haven’t used Inglot yet, so can’t say.. But MF one is lipstick. Period.

    I love to layer a powder blush on top of this MF one, so i get a dewy, glowy and intense colour look, wthout looking oily.

  11. mrun i meant i get confused among the shades (not their texture or consistency) that these brands offer. once i n blend those pink/red swatches on my hand i can never seem to pick up one that is best :((

  12. :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:

      1. revlon colorburst ka true red … i didnt even dare to buy it … also one lakme or street wear .. that was toh worse .. i can never wear red ..sseeeshhhh !!!
        acha listen , i wanted to ask u about foundation .. i use lakme souffle when i go out , beacuse thats the only thing that doesnt make me look like a half baked cake .. i saw colorbar,revlon,lotus,streetwear ka foundation y’day .. which one is worth a pick .. m so confused ?:) ?:) ?:) ?:) ?:) ?:) …no other brands available here :weep:

    1. naina me no even look like chameli in red….me look like cabaret dancer helen style, only need to attch feathers on my butt tail style to complete the look :secret2:

        1. Heee Heeee no that Revlon colorburst wallah red is likethat onlyyyy – look for a red with thoda brown in it … it will tone it down a lil – or like Ratidoooo calls it – cheating wallah red :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue:

          I can imagine Natasha singing oooooooh Mungdaaaaaaa Mungdaaaaa mein something something ….. :tremble: :tremble: :tremble: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

  15. looking phenomenal Mrunmayee! 🙂 I recently bought ‘Crimson’ shade from Revlon Colorburst range (loving the colorburst range!) and I’m totally inspired by your look to try it out soon!
    Is this ‘true gold’ colorbar blush different from ‘trace gold’? I’ve been meaning to buy a highlighter since a long time.

    1. Er… It is Trace gold only.. Mishtake..

      It is the best highlighter.. As it doesn’t make you look like a disco ball. Just the right amount of shimmer..

      And please post your pics when you try this out.. :))

  16. Mrunmayee!!!!!!!!!! You looking sooooooooopper HOT!!! :yes: :yes: :yes: :bravo: :bravo: I can never carry off red like that!!! Btw I wanted to ask you if you have tried any of the lipsticks from revlons colorburst range ?:) I have a dusky skintone and i’m just not sure which shade would suit me. im so tired of brown/copper shades….want to pick something different this time!!…..any suggestions??

    1. Thanks a lot Aditi… You will find ur red one day and then you’ll do those!!!

      Sadly, i haven’t tried Revlon colorburst… Though i really want some of them..

      But I can give you two pink reccos from colorbar.. Naked pink and Irish Rose..

      Also you can try plums and mauves.. Try Brown shimmer from Colorbar.. And soft plum from maybelline.

      1. Wow that was quick!! Thank you soo much Mrun!! :-* :-* :-* :-* I’ve been eyeing the colorburst range for some time now…The reviews here make it sound sooooo yummmy!!! :drool: :drool: :drool: so me trying to find that perfect shade for me.!! I think i’ll check out the pinks shades from colorbar!! never tried pinks before!! Soft plum sounds good too!! is it purplish.. ?:) .i got Hot Plum from lotus last week and its kinda close to purple…

        1. I think there was a review for Soft plum y’day.. Check that out.. Pick your faces from colorbar velvet mattes or soft touch.. Those are some amazing lippies..

          If you wanna try a nude, try CB diva collection “For keeps’.. it’s my perfect HG nude… 😀

  17. nobody answering me … which foundation to buy :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: … i go bang my head .. :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang:

    1. Er.. i didn’t see your query.. Naina, i love maxfactor for their variety of textures oand finishes..

      My favourite is Age renew.. If you have oliy skin, it may not suit you.

      Another of my fave is maybelline Dream matte mousse.. I have never seen a foundation this opaque, and it will do wonders for oily skin.

      Never tried Revlon or loreal, so can’t say.

      I personally didn’t like Bourjois foundations when I swatched them Too light for me. But you can try those too.

      As it’s always advisable to invest in good base makeup, try to get your hands on MAC or the beshtesht foundation i have ever tried MUFE HD foundation.

      Hope this helps. :))

  18. WOW red!! :victory:

    I feel am a very silent member. Have been following the blog for some 4 months. I have seen lot of eyemakeup tutorials from Mrun.. Gotta say this. You have very pretty eyes!! aactually sexy more than pretty!! 😉 😉 😉 😉

    1. C’mon… Rima.. Just because you don’t do red lips doesn’t mean they don’t look good on you!!!
