Red Lip & Glistening Skin: Christmas Makeup


Whether it be with friends, family or colleagues, I'm here to help you pre-select your Christmas party makeup. My beauty regime does change for Christmas parties. I like to add a little more shimmer around the festive season. I'm going to talk you through my go-to holiday party look which includes a classic red lip and glistening skin.

Starting with the base - apply an illuminating primer all over. May I suggest the Temple Spa Look On The Brightside illuminator*. This liquid highlighter contains a cocktail of skin-loving ingredients such as vitamin B3, pomegranate, red clover and ginger & mint extract. It adds instant radiance and creates a perfect base. Follow with a foundation and concealer of your choice.

The focus of this look is the lips so keep eye makeup simple. Wash a champagne colour all over your lids a lightly smudge a brown liner along your top lash line. Frame the eyes furthermore with the Makeup Revolution Brow Tint and Eyeko Eyedo Mascara. To get super-white bright eyes keep Murine Bright and Moist Eye Drops* in your handbag. The liquid gel consistency helps to keep the drops in your eyes.

Moving onto the classic red lip. Start off by lining the lips with a lip liner in a similar shade. I'm a fan of the No7 Lip Pencils. Trace slightly outside of your natural lip line and fill in. Apply your desired red lipstick straight from the bullet for full impact.

That's my Christmas day makeup look all sorted! Will you be wearing a similar look?

Degustabox November Review

november degustabox review
It's that time of month again when I review Degustabox. This months offering is a savoury-based selection of delectable treats.

Pip Organic Cloudy Apple Juice
You can't go wrong with organic fruit juice and these little bottles from Pip Organic were lovely. Not too sweet and not too water-y.
Holy Cow Curry Sauce
As a curry lover I couldn't wait to give these a go. The sachet of sauce is super easy to use and cooks within a few minutes. It didn't taste like it came from a packet, I'd really recommend these if you're usually in a rush at tea time.
Cool Dawn Recovery Drinks
Designed to cure a hangover. I'm yet to have a hangover so I'll keep this in the fridge in case I have one to many this Christmas. I've heard the taste isn't great but that they do work!
Branston Caramelised Onion Chutney
I haven't tried this as I'm not a fan of onion but Branston is such a popular brand, this would make a great addition to a Christmas hamper!
Kent's Kitchen Flavour Shots
These little cubes are ideal when you want a quick meal but don't want to scrimp on the taste or quality. I added one shot to some diced chicken breast and made fajitas wraps. It wasn't too spicy either, a definite repurchase!
Drink Me Chai Latte
This was presented as a 'sample present' as everything else was full sized. I haven't tried Chai before but my Mum enjoys it so I passed this onto her - she loved it!
Kettle Chips in Limited Edition Salsa & Mesquite
I adore Kettle Chips so was pleased to see they have launched some new flavours this season. This limited edition bag was very tasty and very moreish. I'll be checking out instore what else they have to offer!
Montano Cider 
As I'm not a big cider drinking I'll be adding this to someone's Christmas hamper as it looks like a nice product. This medium-dry cider is the perfect accompaniment to an Italian cuisine.
Lindor My Melting Moment
Lindt chocolate is a favourite of mine and these Melting Moments are really something special. Almost too good to share!

Another great Degustabox. If you have any foodie friends or love to discover new brands and products yourself, this would make a perfect Christmas present! Get £3 off your first order using the code - EA7L9

Winter Primers

So you've sorted out your winter skincare routine, time to tackle winter makeup must-haves; or more specificity - primers. Primers are designed to make your makeup stay on longer, give your skin a subtle shimmer, blur fine lines or can reduce redness. I've found four to get you through the party season.

Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights in Pink Light £11.99
I have spoken about my love for this many times before. This priming gem works a treat on dull, winter skin. The shimmery pink shade works best on fair skin and creates a dewy complexion. I like to use this mixed with my foundation for a natural but radiant glow.
Temple Spa Look On The Bright Side* £30.00
A champagne coloured liquid illuminator that brightens and warms up your complexion. The added skincare benefits this has is a bonus. I apply this under my base for a subtle shimmer. I'll add a little extra to my cheekbones which sculpts them and catches the light. The sheer formula provides instant party-ready radiance.
L'oreal Lumi Magique Base £9.99
For a no-fuss glow apply this all over. The lightweight liquid has a pearlescent finish and can be mixed in with your daily moisturiser to wake up over-partied skin. A little goes a long way making this product a great budget buy.
Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer £12.99
Well it's clear Revlon know how to make a good primer. At this time of year there is no doubt there will be plenty of photo opportunities. This primer is designed to disguise pores and fine lines whilst smoothing out the skin. I find my skin always looks 10x better when wearing this in photo's.

Which primer do you like the sounds of most?
