Right, it’s back to beauty and positive vibes with this blog post!
Christmas is next week, yes it really is coming round that quick! So while I should be finishing off my Christmas shopping, instead I thought I’d sit down and share with you my top beauty picks for the most glam time of the year!
For me it’s all about full coverage, dewy skin with gold eyes and of course a bold red lip!
Starting with primer, i’ve been loving the No7 Airbrush Away primer, it’s great for balancing out the redness that comes with eczema prone skin. I also love the Smashbox studio skin foundation, it’s hydrating and it’s great for brightening and covering the dull skin that winter brings. For concealer I’ve chosen my trusty Maybelline eraser eye, it’s great for brightening the pesky dark circles that I can’t seem to shake off!
For contour/bronzer I have been loving this Sleek contour kit, it’s great for carving out the cheekbones and warming up my skin, without going too orange, which happens easily with my pale skin. Christmas is the best excuse to highlight to the high heavens, so I have been using a combination of the Benefit Watts Up highlight and the Tanya Burr illuminating powder in warm bronze.
Moving onto the eyes it’s all about the shimmer with the Smashbox Full Exposure palette, with a classic black winged liner using the Rimmel Glam Eyes liquid liner. My favourite mascara at the moment is the Maybelline Lash Sensational, i’d recommend trying it if you haven’t already! And of course, brows, what else could I use but the Benefit Goof Proof brow pencil, it’s really precise for filling in and defining brows, even for blonde hair.
Finally, lips and this gorgeous Maybelline super stay liquid lipstick in the shade red passion. I’m not normally one for bold lips, my pale complexion doesn’t always suit it. However I feel a red lip is a must at Christmas. So there we go, my festive favourites, i’ll probably do a look with these products on Christmas day, so watch out on my Instagram for a lil selfie.
