Happy Holidays + Mulberry Wine Makeup Look


Happy Holidays Everyone!! I hope you are all having a wonderful week. I wanted to do a quick post showing the makeup look I wore last night. I had been wanting to try out a lip product from Bite Beauty for quite some time so when I recently stopped by Sephora I decided to check out some of their lipsticks. When I was browsing through all of the different lip colors, I was instantly drawn to the color Mulberry. I swatched it on my hand and fell in love. I couldn’t wait to put this deep wine color on my lips! This color inspired me to do a very quick holiday-inspired look before heading out to celebrate Christmas Eve. All photos were taken with my iphone so I apologize for the quality!

Bite Beauty’s lipsticks are formulated WITHOUT – Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances, Synthetic Dyes, Petrochemicals, Phthalates, GMOs, Triclosan. They are free of synthetics, polybutenes, and petroleum byproducts and made exclusively with lip nurturing food-grade ingredients that are healthy enough to eat.

For this look I used Real Techniques Core Collection Brushes for my face and Bdellium Tools Green Bambu Smokey Eye Set for my eyes. I will specify which brushes used for each product below.

How I Achieved This Look:


I started by priming my skin with Vapour Organic Beauty Stratus Instant Skin Perfector

I then applied Kjaer Weis Foundation in “Like Porcelain” with the Pointed Foundation Brush to targeted areas that needed coverage (around my nose, chin, under eyes) I then blended out the foundation using the Buffing Brush. Used the Contour Brush to apply Kjaer Weis Desired Glow Blush on the apples of my cheeks. I also contoured with this blush using the Detailer Brush.

For the eyes I wanted to keep it neutral with the colors (since the lips are the main focus of this look) and do a slight winged out liner. For this I lightly brushed a pink color all over my lid using the 777B Shadow Brush, and then using the 781B Crease Brush I blended a light brown shadow to the crease of my eye. Both colors were from Jane Iredale’s Glamour Eye & Lip Palette. I lined my eyes with 100% Pure Black Tea Gel Liner to the top lash-line using the 760B Liner Brush.I also lightly swept the same brown color to the lower lash-line and applied Kjaer Weis Mascara to the lower lashes and Dr. Hauschka Volume Mascara to the top. I filled in my eyebrows using Jane Iredale’s Bitty Brow Kit.

I lined my lips with BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Liner in “Electrified” – (a royal plum) and then applied two layers of Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick in “Mulberry” – (wine).


Here is a photo of me and my love before heading over to his family’s house for Christmas Eve.

  1. Happy holidays, Britanie!! I love how gorgeous the deeper mulberry shade looks on you. I’ve been thinking about picking up Kjaer Weis’ Sensuous Plum too because mulberry/plums look so good during the winter months.

    • Thank you! I wouldn’t say it gives a matte finish but it also doesn’t make you oily throughout the day like a lot of other oil based foundations do. It’s the perfect finish!

  2. Gorgeous look! I’m thinking about purchasing the Kjaer Weis foundation, are you planning a full review any time soon? :)
