Christmas Makeup Look with Nordstrom

Sponsored by Nordstrom and ShopStyle

Nordstrom is my go-to shop for holiday apparel & gifts, and especially for holiday beauty. I love placing one order and getting everything I need from Christmas gifts, clothing, and home accessories to makeup, skincare, hair tools and more. We don’t currently have any swanky holiday parties to attend, but that won’t stop me from getting a little extra glam for a date night or two. If you are looking to purchase some new makeup for family photos, Christmas celebrations or a winter wedding, you will love this post! I am sharing my go-to Christmas makeup look when you want to look a little glam. These products will have you looking glowy, bright-eyed and camera-ready in no time!

Why I Shop at Nordstrom

Another thing I love about Nordstrom is how they keep up with and regularly share curated shopping mixes and focus on seasonal trends. They even share video tutorials on how to do your hair and makeup! I love their gift with purchase offerings and that you can utilize free in-store consultations. Paired with Nordstrom’s vast array of services including free shipping and returns, curbside pickup and the benefits for being a member of The Nordy Club, Nordstrom makes shopping easy and hassle-free.

Christmas Makeup Look

Cristin Cooper's Christmas Party Makeup

To start off my Christmas makeup look, I applied Chanel’s Les Beiges Water-Fresh Tint. This product acts as a primer for your foundation and gives your final look a nice glow. I also love Charlotte Tilbury’s Wonder Glow for this same use!

I am often asked what my favorite foundations are and Nordstrom just happens to carry all three! In this look, I am wearing Westman Atelier’s Foundation Stick in shade 3 because it is an easy-to-apply foundation and I was getting ready quickly! If I wanted a more full-coverage foundation then I would use Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Foundation and my go-to for every day is Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation

For concealer I used Cle De Peau Beaute Concealer in Ivory, setting it with Laura Mercier’s Eye Brightening Setting Powder. On my lashes I am wearing this Tom Ford Color Quad, but I have also been wearing this palette from Charlotte Tilbury a ton! It isn’t as pigmented or shimmery so while it’s great for a Christmas party it’s also pretty for daily makeup. 

To highlight and contour I used Tom Ford’s Soleil Glow Bronzer. I also love Westman Atelier’s Contour Stick in Biscuit and just bought this Chanel Bronzing Cream to try! I highlighted my cheekbones and the bridge of my nose with Westman Atelier’s Lit Up Highlight Stick and popped just a tad bit of color on my cheeks with this blush in “Love Glow”. If you are interested in trying Westman Atelier’s sticks then you should definitely buy this trio!

I set a few shiny spots with this setting powder in “medium”, using this brush. I also used this complexion brush for foundation and concealer and this brush for contouring.

On my brows, I am wearing Charlotte Tilbury’s Brow Cheat in Taupe but I also love Bobbi Brown’s Brow Pencil. Both of these pencils are easy to use and achieve a natural brow!

Two of my favorite mascaras from Nordstrom are the Chantecaille Longest Lash Mascara and this one by Tom Ford. I love the Chantecaille mascara because it has a lash-growth peptide that strengthens your lashes with each use.

On my lips, I’m wearing my all-time favorite lip liner in “Pillow Talk”, a touch of this lipstick in “Bitch Perfect” and this gloss in “Pillow Talk”.
