Christmas Day Makeup

2nd December 2018

Christmas is the perfect excuse to kit yourself out with some new makeup, after all, what’s better than a gift from you to you?


One of our current favourite companies to buy makeup from is Natural Collection. They sell a huge range of products which are all really easy to apply and stay on your face all day but come off when you want them to! The even better news is that the products they sell are cruelty-free, which we absolutely love! Check out this article if you’d like to find out more about testing cosmetics on animals.


Natural Collection has very kindly gifted us a Cruelty-Free Hamper, which you all have the chance to win! Head to our social media (@wonkscience) where you’ll find the entry details… good luck! Take a look at their full Cruelty-Free range here!


We’ve put together a full face of makeup from Natural Collection that is perfect for Christmas Day and the festive period! We’ve gone for quite a light, natural look with a slight pop of colour which is a great option at Christmas when you don’t want to be feeling too heavily caked in makeup!


Foundation (£9.95)

Instead of going for a full-on foundation, we’ve gone for a BB cream which is a much lighter option and keeps your skin nicely moisturised during the winter months.

Concealer (£6.95)


Since we kept it light with the foundation, you may have some areas which you’d like a bit of extra coverage on. This concealer will definitely do the job! If you’d like to brighten up your eyes with this too, we’d suggest going a shade lighter than your skin tone.

Powder (£6.95)


Time to keep your foundation and concealer in place! This powder leaves your skin feeling super soft and not at all cakey… it also sets your makeup base in place all day!

Bronzer & Blusher (£6.95)


Bring some colour back to your face with this iconic duo. The blusher is the perfect colour for giving your cheeks a rosy glow and suits nearly all skin tones. The bronzer brings a bit of warmth to your face, and can also be used for contouring (if that’s your thing)!

Brows (£10.90)

We absolutely love this brow gel! It’s a great way to keep your eyebrow hairs tamed, without the risk of smudging brown eyebrow across your face throughout the day! You’d be surprised how much difference this makes to your brows.

Eyeshadow (£6.95 each)

The two colours we’ve chosen for eyeshadow are ‘Marble Sparkle’ and ‘Emerald Showers’. These are beautiful festive colours and can be worn in a few different ways depending on the occasion! Our favourite of the two has got to be the green, but the white shade is gorgeous too!




Eyeliner (£3.95)

Adding eyeliner creates a more dramatic look and can be applied just to the waterline or as a full cat eye, or anything in between! The best thing about this particular liner is that it’s smudge-free, which means you can say goodbye to those panda eyes that we are all too familiar with!




Mascara (£6.95)


Your lashes get a little bit lost after you’ve made up the rest of your eyes, so give them a chance to shine with a coat of mascara. This formula is fabulous for separating out your lashes and avoiding clumping or those very undesirable spider lashes! You can build up this mascara to give you a more dramatic look too!

Lips (£5.95)

Tinted Lip Balm.jpg

Instead of a lipstick or lip gloss, we’ve chosen a tinted lip balm to finish off this look. carrying on with the natural, but buildable makeup. Tinted lip balm gives you a really pretty colour to your lips but doesn’t require a lot of upkeep, which is great at Christmas when you’ve got a lot of food passing through your lips!
