I don’t get many opportunities to get glammed up these days so I’ve been really excited about going to Andy’s work Christmas party, yep a night out minus children, wearing nice make-up, and clothes that don’t have dirty fingerprints all over them – what a joy!
Heres a little round up of my Christmas party look
New CID I-prime If I’m honest I don’t used primer very often so I’ve had this one for a year now, I only use it on special occasions but I’ve read it has good reviews on daily wear.
Estée Lauder double wear foundation I don’t wear any other foundation other than this, I’ve tried others but as of yet I haven’t found any as good, it lasts from day to night and is just fab. Yes it’s pricey but a little goes a long way.
Collection lasting perfection concealer The holy grail of budget concealers, this stuff is fab at hiding any dark circles or red patches, and at £3.99 it’s a must have.
Rimmel stay matte pressed powder I purchased this the other day purely for my Christmas party make-up and I can definitely say it helped combat the one too many free wines ‘glow’ and kept my make up looking good all night.
Urban Decay naked flushed I forgot to photograph this one whoops! I use this blush palette all the time, I’m not good with contouring and things like that so this is just a really easy to use bronzer/highlight/blush all in one.
Eyes and Brows
Urban Decay Naked 2 Day to day I don’t really wear much in the way of eyeshadow so any excuse to get my naked palettes out and I’m happy. My outfit was black with gold spots so I decided to do a gold eye and naked 2 has the most gold tone eye shadows in. I used Bootycall, half baked and snakebite.
Kat Von D tattoo liner I love this eyeliner, I’ve only got a mini at the minute but I definitely intend to re buy it, I find it really easy to use (I’m not great when it comes to eyeliner) and it lasts ages.
Maybelline lash sensational mascara This is the only mascara I use currently, It separates and really lifts my lashes and with a couple of coats it looks like I’m wearing false lashes, love it.
Benefit goof proof brow pencil I originally got this as a freebie in a magazine but it’s definitely something I will be repurchasing, in fact I don’t use any other brow product now I have this. It is so easy to use even for someone who’s a bit crap at getting perfect brows, this definitely helps.
Barry M satin superslick lip paint – Berry liscious. Totally in love with this lipstick shade, I will definitely be trying other shades out.
Barry M lip liner – Red. I didn’t use this one on the night as I decided to go with a slightly darker lip than planned however I used it the night before and it’s such a great combination with the above.
Essie Toggle to the top Red and glitter, what says Christmas more than that?
Barry M molten metal nail paint – Bronze Bae. I used this as an accent colour but it’s such a fab colour I’m going to do all my nails in it for Christmas.
I will probably use the same look for Christmas Day too, unless santa brings me any nice new makeup 💄
