It's that time of the year again where I get one year older, my birthday, on December 25. I was spending my birthday at home with my closest, so I wore quite a natural glam look, that would enhance my green eyes. Keep reading for close-ups of my eye makeup and the products I used.

First, primer. I used the Catrice Prime and Fine Primer. With a Contour Brush by Real Techniques I applied the Max Factor 2 in 1 Serum Foundation in Warm Almond. I concealed my under-eyes and imperfections with the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in Beige and used both the  NYC Smooth Skin Pressed Face Powder in Translucent and the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Silky Beige to mattify my face. To warm up my face i used H&M Bronzing Powder in Gorgeous Tan and Wet 'n Wild Illuminating Bronzer in Starlight Bronze.  For blush I used the KIKO Bling Blush in Celebrity Rose.

I applied the Urban Decay Eden Eyeshadow Primer all over my lids, to even out the color of my eyelids and make my eyeshadows stay on all day. With a fluffy brush I applied NYX Nude Matte Shadow in Underneath It All (a medium brown) into my crease, then I grabbed my favorite Urban Decay Naked Palette and applied Toasted (a metallic rosy, purple-ish bronze) all over my eyelids, blending it into the crease color. I used one of my favorite shades Sin (a pale metallic champagne-pink) to brighten the inner corners of my eyes and Virgin (pale satin off-white) to highlight my brow bone. Then I used Sephora Eyeshadow in Red Wine (a matte dark red-toned purple) on the outer corners of my eyes, to make the look more smokey, and made sure everything was blended nicely together. I used two different mascaras, first the Laura Geller GlamLash Mascara to volumize and separate and Max Factor Masterpiece Max Mascara to lengthen. Lastly I fixed my brows using the Catrice Eyebrow Stylist in Date With Ash-ton. 

The lips are really simple, I used the Catrice Long Lasting Lip Pencil in Vintage Rose, to outline my lips. With my ring finger i blended the edges and applied my favorite lip balm from Idento.

Hope you all had a Merry Christmas and that you'll have a safe and Happy New Year!
