Festive Make Up

I thought I would share with you the make up I will be wearing on Christmas Day! I am so excited for this Christmas. My parents are coming here this year and it’ll be the first time we have spent the WHOLE day at home. Which will be amazing as won’t have to drag all of Jakes presents out. Woohoo.

Christmas Day starts off with me staying in my Christmas pjs and opening presents with my boys and family, we then go get ready for the day before breakfast. I always like to wear a Christmas jumper or a nice dress so it’s only normal I want my face to look semi human in case of photos etc.

Although it’s not over the top it’s more than normal for me…

The Ordinary Coverage foundation. I love this foundation so much. It covers what I need it to and doesn’t feel heavy or cakey. Healthy mix by Bourjois concealer on my bags and spots… and blend that in with my RT buffing brush.

As standard my Nars Laguna goes on my cheek bones and temples and under my chin.. and some Benetint on my cheekbones and lips. You know.. for that healthy look haha.

I have been loving this Ardell Brow Promade in Blonde. It’s so super to use and a perfect shade for me. I will be using my Urban Decay Naked palette this year… with Naked and Buck in the crease with Half Baked on my lid and lower lash line. With L’Oreal babydoll mascara…. seriously still obsessed with this mascara.

To finish my face off I will be using the Benefit Benebalm, it’s such a perfect colour and not over the top for me. I am not brave enough for a full on red lip so this balm is perfect for me! Festive but still in my comfort zone!

Once all done I will spritz my face with the Urban Decay setting spray (which is incredible FYI)

My Favourite Christmas Jumpers

I did share some of my Christmas jumpers last year but these are this years favourites… yes some same as last year but whatevs…. I love a Christmas jumper and if I’m honest I would wear one all year round, or perhaps a Christmas dress in summer because it’s hot but you get the idea… I love them.

Anywho here they are….

Some of these I’ve had for year and some are new additions!! My favourite has to be the Avocado one which is from H&M, I have loved avocados forever… even before they were “cool” shocking huh?

I would love to have some more Christmas jumpers, where is your favourite place to buy them? XO

My Festive Nails

When it comes to nails I like to go with the season so Spring is light pinks and corals, Summer is all about bright colours, especially pinks! Autumn and Winter are all about Berry and red shades. However, now it is December I feel it is only appropriate to crack out the glitter. Now a little disclaimer I will wear glitter all year round but right now… it’s ok to step the glitter game up which is why I went for a red glitter.

I prepped my nails and I decided to file them down. Start fresh and grow them. As I do other people’s nails as my job now, my nails tend to get a beating which is why I like to use Gel on my nails now. So much harder wearing and lasts so well.

I went for this shade call Morchino Cherry which is a lovely dark ish red. I then popped on top this red glitter called Meteor.. now isn’t this beautiful?? I’ve been obsessed since I bought it and been dying to use it. I love my gold and silver glitter but this red just screams “Santa come at me bitch!”

Once I did my nails I did cuticle oil and hand cream. I use these on my clients and always get asked what the hand cream is. It smells incredible!

Wish the red glitter showed more in the photo! It really is lush!
