So like Friday’s post I introduced a new series an again here’s another very similar to my ‘Style Season’ but this one is ‘Beauty Picks’ which again I will be doing around events for the time of year so assume when you see a fashion one, a beauty post will be following shortly after.
So lets dive straight in, this is my ‘Festive Face’ kit! Starting with ‘The Gold Eyeshadow’, yes Santa coming down your chimney which means that putting on the most pigmented gold eyeshadow you own is a beauty law. Gold is great and suits nearly everybody, silly as it is adding some glittery gold powder to my eyes makes me feel like the angel on top of the tree. So I’ve got three I will definitely be using this season. First we have a oldie but a goodie which is The Smashbox Full Exposure Palette, this palette has got your back for every occasion you can think of. The second and third colour in, in the shimmers are just perfect for this season and I will rocking them for the rest of this month. Next is the brightest of them all it’s the MAC Brownluxe Palette this gold is very bright and you will be a shining star if you use something like a damp brush to apply it. You also have the option of apply it dry which means it’ll be more of a light dusting rather than a solid gold. Now for my favourite of them all this more rose gold paint pot from Chanel (Illusion D’ombre). This is great by itself but also to work another eyeshadow on top to give it more of a metallic sheen. For me I like to wear this alone and blend a few deep browns with it for a more evening look.
Time for some lipsticks and of course the festive colour is red. Now I very rarely, maybe a few times a year wear red as it makes me feel super conscious when I do. But 2016 my mission is to find a red that I’m super comfortable with. I’ve got the Viva Glam Rihanna from MAC which is a red which some small gold glitters in, sounds like the perfect christmas lipstick I know. However I find it very hard to wear this as I’m blonde so for my brunettes this is perfect red for you. Second is my most used red and it’s the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lip Creams (01), like most I like the formula but hate the smell. It is a true red and probably the one I wear the most. I pair this with Gosh’s Velvet Touch Lipliner in 004 Simply Red. These lipliner are so good and the colour pay off is incredible, think a trip back to Boots is in order for some more.
See you Friday
