My go-to holiday makeup look featuring Becca

I’ve never had a designated holiday look, but I needed a good occasion to use my Becca Ombre Rouge Palette. Christmas seemed a good idea and why not New Year’s too, right?

This palette is a beauty, and it’s easily one of my favourite things I’ve bought this year.

Most of these shades are matte, and I can even work with the satins as they’re all velvety smooth in texture, if a little chalky. Blending is effortless, and if a klutz like me can manage them, anyone can!

I start off with a light sweep of the third shade all over my lids, a faint nude with a hint of pink. The fourth shade, a lovely medium brown with a distinct orange tone to it, then goes into my crease. Of all the shades, that one’s my favourite. On the outer corner of my eye, in somewhat a soft winged out shape, I add the last shade, a deep brown with reddish mauve undertones.

It’s a smoky eye with a twist, as the orange and red undertones complement each other well. Their wear time is good, as I managed eight hours before my look started to fade, with a primer of course.

I’ve tried this look during the day and it was a little too intense, despite using very little product, so using it for holiday parties has been good fun!
