Festive Make Up

Party season is well and truly here! I had my work Christmas party last Friday night so I thought I’d share how I did my make up on the night.

Party Make Up


I’ve been using the benefit POREfessional primer for a while now and I’ve been finding it pretty good.



I’ve recently been using the Inglot YSM foundation & just got a couple of shades darker than my usual ghostly colour cause I was slightly covered in fake tan!

The old reliable Rimmel Stay Matte translucent powder. I think I’ve been using this since I first started wearing make up!

The Inglot Under Eye Concealer is becoming a trusty companion in my make up collection.



Contour and Highlighter

I mentioned this in my 2017 favourites post. I used both the contour powder and highlighter from the Sleek Face Form palete but in the “Fair” shade because of my ghostly complexion.



Again one of my 2017 favourites – the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade.



I love love love the Naked Palettes for my eyes and for the Christmas party I used one of my go too looks, I didn’t want a very dramatic eye look as I was going for a dark lip so I used the Naked 1 Palette.

I used the colour Naked in the crease, Sin for the lid and toasted in the outer corner.

A thin line of Inglot’s Gel Liner, a little dust of Inglot’s Pure Pigment (no. 75) and a quick swoop of Too Faced’s Better Than Sex mascara and the eyes were done!

As I said I went for a dark lip so it was Mac’s brick for liner and my absolute favourite Mac Diva for the main colour.

Sprayed a bit of Urban Decay Setting spray and I was ready to go!

My Christmas Wishlist

I’m one of those people who never really knows what they want when people ask and to be honest I’m kind of at the stage of my life where I’m just buying the stuff I want now so creating a wishlist was a little difficult but there are a few things I have wanted for a while but never got around to buying. I also had my friend Vanessa (shout out Vanessa :P) give me a list of make up I need to add to my collection.

Instax Mini Camera

I love taking pictures and I have always wanted to get an Instax Mini Camera but never got around to buying one myself. I’m always taking pictures but rarely manage to print them so this Polaroid camera would be ideal cause I’d get my pictures printed instantly.

Pandora Gemini Charm

My birthday is June 6th so I’m a Gemini and although I’m not super into my astrology I do enjoy reading my horoscopes and I put my everlasting longing to be a twin down to the fact that I am a Gemini. I love this little Gemini Pandora Charm.

Now on to the suggested items from Vanessa for my makeup collection.

With all these begin said I’m pretty easy to please at Christmas time. As long as we have our Turkey and Ham dinner, our visits to Granny’s and my uncles and we have a Disney movie on Christmas night, give me a pair of fluffy socks and pjyamas and I’d be as happy as Larry!
