We all change up our beauty routines a little with seasonal change, but Christmas is definitely the biggest party time; time for gold and sparkles and festive glow!
This year especially, I’ve seen a big change in my makeup style, and with the Christmas season on its way, I’ve moved away from nude and peachy tones, and have started incorporated more rich, golden tones on my face, shimmery shades on my eyes and deeper reds on my lips, and a few products have stood out as I’ve been reaching for them more and more.
Controversially, I’m not a big fan of High Beam from Benefit, but Sun Beam is probably my most used liquid highligher at the moment. It leaves such a wonderful glow on my cheeks, without looking too bronze against my oh-so pale natural skin colour.
Golden Lights and Peach Lights
Makeup Revolution highlighters are my life; I probably have most of them! My most recent purchase was this palette, featuring Golden, Peach and Pink Lights, and while the latter is more of a summery shade, the first two are really shimmery and perfect for Christmas parties!
Matte Trimony Matt Kumar eyeshadow
I never used to be much of an eyeshadow person, but in recent months I’ve been loving it a lot more. I got this sample from theBalm in my Feel Unique Pick’n’Mix, and its an ideal Christmas shade: a deep red/burgundy, which blends really well with nude shades and looks great with a bit of shimmer over the top – I blend it with Fit from the Nude Dude palette!
I’ve had this nail varnish for a few years now, and only ever seem to bring it out at Christmas! Its sparkly, without being overly glittery, and also a fairly light shade so can match a lot of outfits.
Nyx Lip Primer in Deep Nude
This is an all year round staple for me, but especially for the party season, keeping my lipstick in place is so important! I love how easy this is to apply, and how it doesn’t feel too sticky or slimy, and it works!
Colourburst Matte Balm in Standout
I have 5 different shades of these lipsticks from Revlon, but Standout for me is a Christmas shade all over. Its a deep red, can last all night with minimal effort, and I like its pencil style design for easy application
