My Christmas Make Up Loves...

Monday, 7 December 2015

When it gets to Christmas time I love to mix up my make up routine a little bit, the basics usually stay the same like foundation and concealer but the more exciting things change like eyeshadow and lips etc.

So this year I've become a little bit obsessed with the red lip look. I'm seriously hoping I get MAC Ruby Woo for christmas but in the mean time I've been using a couple of the Topshop colours. First off I've been loving Topshops Velvet Lips in 'Velveteen Ribbon', the only annoying thing is that they don't actually sell this anymore because I got it last year, so I've been savouring it. These lip velvets are such a perfect matt and they stay on all night long, I don't usually use this with a lip liner because it doesn't really need one, but sure it would still look amazing with one.
The second Topshop lip I've been loving is their Matte Lip Bullet in 'Motel'. I love these lip bullets, they're so easy to apply and they last so long, this is the perfect christmassy red, although it's a matte colour with a bit of clear lip gloss over the top makes it look so shiny and cute.

Next up we have some eyeshadows. I've featured both of these in two different posts before but I'm still so in love with them, starting off with Max Factor Wild Shadow Pot 'Burnt Bark', I featured this in my Autumn Essentials post and I'm still loving it. I like to use this eyeshadow for my crease because I think it makes the perfect shadow and its just so sparky I love it.
The second Eyeshadow love I have this season is my MUA Undress Me Too Palette. This little beauty had its very own post, and again I'm still in love with this bargain beauty. For the Christmas time I love using the sparkliest colours, my favourite ones are the gold and the rose gold colour.
Another sparkly little number is the Topshop glow pot which I featured in a very recent post.

Last but not least we have eyeliner. I'm never really an eyeliner kinda girl, my everyday make up never consists of it, but when it comes to christmas and my eyeshadow is looking on point I sometimes like to throw in a little flick to make it look extra special. At the moment I'm alternating between the Soap and Glory Supercat and the Maybeline Lasting Gel Liner, I usually use the gel liner more just because I think it gives a better more natural look, but if I'm rushing and want a super slick flick the supercar works perfectly.

Those are my favourite Christmas make up bits, what are yours?
