As it gets ever closer to Christmas more and more Christmas parties are occurring, Christmas Day is soon to be, followed by New Year; with that being said today I thought I would share with you my top 5 pieces of festive makeup.
First up had to be the my beloved Stila Cheek Palette, in particular the shade Peony, the shade second from left. It is a dusty rose colour that immediately adds life to the face, whilst still being natural. The formula is extremely long-lasting as well, perfect for the party season.
The MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighteris one I couldn’t do this post without. It adds a light highlight to your face without going too overboard, again perfect for the party season, but also to add some life back to your face on these miserable days.
The next festive item of makeup had to be Benefit’s Roller Lash, the mascara perfect for curling and lengthening your lashes all in one go. It is also probably the only high-end mascara I have ever thought is actually worth the price. This is a perfect one to transfer your daytime look into an evening look.
As soon as the weather starts to get a bit colder out comes my darker lipsticks. This one from The Body Shopis a perfect edition to festive up your makeup. It is a dark red colour in the shade 125.
Lastly, I had to include a gel nail polish I purchased recently from Essence in the shade True Love. It is a combination of a dark red and dark pink gorgeous colour, my favourite colour to wear in Autumn/Winter. If you added a gold glitter top coat this would make your nails even more festive.
