Festive Beauty Favourites

It's officially the month of Christmas, so I'm getting ready for the dreamy glitters and matte red lips which the festive season makeup brings. I wanted to share with you some of my top picks at the moment, as I've loved taking inspiration from the flickering fairy lights and the cosiness of hot chocolates in front of the roaring fire. 

The Lush Christmas range is a yearly tradition of mine where I go mad and buy everything to put in a warm, relaxing bath. The Magic Wand is a deliciously scent bubble bar which creates an abundance of bubbles that you can sink yourself into and it slightly scents my skin too! 

For my parched skin, I love nothing more than to lather myself with the Laura Mercier Creme Brûlée Body Creme to ensure that my limbs are kept in tip-top condition. In the morning, I will then spritz a bit of the Diptyque Do Son EDP all over myself for a lingering rose scent that's slightly warming and super dreamy. 

For makeup, I have already been smitten with my favourite shimmering champagne picks and a dark lip in the form of Nars Cruella Lip Pencil, which is a gorgeous dark scarlet red that wears well and looks great. 

I love running a little bit of Becca Rose Quartz Highlighter* over my cheekbones and lids too, in order to add a slight sheen. For an extra dose of sparkle, I like to apply the array of glitters from the Stila Written In The Stars Set* in the middle of my eye makeup to make it pop - You'll definitely see these popping up in upcoming posts of mine. 

I always dig out my luxe lip products as I love whipping them out of my handbag on an evening out and the Tom Ford Addison pick is my current favourite. It's nude, it's comforting and it's easy to reapply throughout the day too. The Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lipstick is another option I have because I can't get enough of nude lips if I know I'll be eating a lot. 

Liquid Lipsticks are a must this time of the year as nothing lasts quite as long as they do. I particularly like wearing the Jouer Lip Creme's* and the Huda Matte* offerings as they come in an array of nude shades which can easily be topped up throughout the night.
