The Festive Makeup Edit


This has to be the best time of year, glitter is officially acceptable to smear pretty much all over your face (maybe not quite) and the party dresses get a good dusting off ready to be rocked once again. What a perfect opportunity to share with you all my Festive Makeup Edit.

I recently picked up a new base, one that I’ve been lusting over for forever! Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua is the nicest foundation I have used in a very long time. It’s lightweight but leaves your skin looking fresh and dewy. It also has amazing staying power so perfect for christmas parties or nights out.

For concealer, I have a new love in my life. Kimmel match perfection is great for under the eyes. It brightens up the area and covers dark circles without being too thick and cakey. A perfect pairing with the foundation.

My bronzer never changes so I won’t talk about it too much again, but it’s obviously my Hoola by Benefit.  I’m going for a gorgeous berry blush in the form of Illamasqua’s Beg. A dusting of highlighter finishes off the base – I love the cream highlighter from No7 as it gives the most beautiful ‘glow from within’ look.

For the eyes, I have another new discovery. The Max Factor Excess Shimmer cream eyeshadow in the shade 25 Bronze is so so pretty. It’s the perfect bronze shade with slight reddy undertones. Perfect with a little bit of Urban Decay’s Half Baked lightly swept over the top for the perfect bronzey/golden eye.

Last but not least is the lips – the star of the show! MAC’s Rebel is my all time favourite lip colour, and so fitting with this look.

What do you think? I would love to know you’re makeup picks for the festive season too!xx
