My Boyfriend Does My Christmas Makeup!

17th December 2017

Hey everyone!

As so many of you seemed to enjoy my makeup post with Jake that you can view here, I thought doing another would be fun. He’s also been in a few other of my blog posts since which you can view here and here. The makeup post was super hilarious for us to do too so doing this a second time round I imagine will be just as funny. So place your bets now, do you think Jake will have improved since his “Oceanic” attempt? Lets find out…

So I asked Jake to pick a theme again, obviously Christmas related. He went for “Winter Wonderland”. I’m not entirely sure what that entails but I guess we’re going to find out? Here are the bits and bobs he has chosen from my ever-growing collection, right down to the brushes.

The Urban Decay Electric palette, a few MUA bits and bobs, the MR Ultra Glow Palette which I recently did a post on here, some Collection glitter liners and a few other pieces.


“On with the infallible, I’ll give it a good shake, is that meant to be the normal consistency?”

“Yes, please try not to get it in my hair, I just washed it”


“So what’s your plan?”

“I don’t really have one right now, I want to try and do something with candy canes but that might be a bit too hard, maybe on your eyelids or something, I might not get there though”

“Wow, okay. Adventurous?”

“This coverage isn’t very even, oh now i’ve got it on my leg, this is definitely already going worse than last time” *laughs*

“Foundation is ON oh my god what do I do next”


“Ooh cream blush, I’ve got to remember this is Christmas themed, lets give you rosey red cheeks”

“…Where does blush go?”

“It’s not really doing anything, lets get a bit more on the brush”

“Okay now I’m going to give you a grinch green highlight, nice and Christmassy”

“Do I dab this? I’m going to dab this”

“Where are you putting that!?”

“Isn’t that where you’re meant to put highlight?”

“No that’s where contour goes”

“Green contour it is, no wait lets keep it as highlight, I have no idea what I’m doing, I CAN’T REMEMBER”

*Jake puts highlight on my cheeks, forehead, nose and chin*


“Oh, wow. Don’t look yet, it… looks great”

“I’m sorry in advance that you have to put this online”

“This is going to be everyones Christmas look I can tell”

“Yeah? What are you going to call it?”

“Christmas Catastrophe, Imagine that, new from L’oreal – Christmas Catastrophe”

“Sounds about right”

“WOW, when I said catastrophe I meant it, you look like something from batman”

“So this is turning more into circus makeup than Christmas makeup”

“I have to say I think this is better than Oceanic, have you seen it yet?”

“No but… oh wow I look like the fucking Italy flag”

“I’m worried I’m going to poke you in the eye, I’m not going to do a fleek thing with the liner”

“Do you mean a flick?”

“…shut up, I think it looks really nice, awww”




“This is going to be hard”

“Are you using green or turquoise?”

“OH MY GOD turquoise, then green on the bottom brows”

“what are bottom brows!?”

“Oh I meant lashes”

“This is so hard, I think I poked you in the eye last time and we need to get rid of that clump”


“I’m going to give you a gold outline on the lips”

“OH MY GOD this is ridiculous, I’m just going to put it all over, it’s gone everywhere”

“Okay I’m done, I can’t wait for the job offers to come flooding in, I’m just a forward thinker, some would say bad at makeup but personally I’d say revolutionary” 

“You’d make an awful drag queen, sorry…”

“I know, that’s why I’m not one”

“That’s the ONLY reason you’re not a drag queen? Because you can’t do the makeup?”


“Well we’ve all learned something new today”

And here is the beautiful finished product.

I’m not quite sure what happened to the Winter Wonderland theme, or any theme for that matter? But hey, I think I look great.

“I definitely think it’s an improvement on Oceanic, but you’ll have to put it to the publics vote”

So what did you think? Have Jakes makeup skills improved or gone downhill since my last post?

’TIl next time,

      Aww thank you 🙂 I’m so glad it made you laugh! We had so much fun making it, I think the lack of blending is probably the worst part of it haha! X

    Oh my! I love this!! I would definitely never trust my fiance to do my make-up, it would be horrible! I love the concentration on his face! He definitely looks like he’s trying soo hard to figure out what to do. I love how you trust him, he’s definitely stepped up his game a little.

  27. Eli cole says:
