Christmas is just around the corner now and I'm slowly getting in the festive spirit. Although I haven't got any more Christmas parties to attend, I still like to sport a glowy skin and glitter-fest of a makeup look until January 1st really. I wanted to share with you some of my favourite picks from the season today.
Charlotte Tilbury screams Christmas to me; everything they do is just perfect for this time of the year. I start off with a layer of my favourite moisturiser, a spritz of the Caudalie Beauty Elixir* and then finish with applying my Magic Foundation* that offers just the right amount of coverage for this sort of occasion. I then cover any dark circles with the Too Faced Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer as this is great to use all around the face too and lasts a long time.
To set my makeup I like to either go straight in with my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Unlocked Palette or if I want something that I know why keep any shine at bay, it's the Huda Beauty Easy Bake Powder* that I reach for. Talking of the Hourglass palette I have been using this non-stop recently, for adding warmth to my cheeks and temples with the bronzer, creating a healthy dose of colour on my complexion and then dusting the highlighter all over for a dreamy sheen. If I want to look even more glowy, I use the Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand first as the light formula sits beautifully on my skin and can be laid up with other products too.
For eyes, I tend to either go simple with a kohl or liquid liner or I go all out with a plum smokey eye which tends to be in the form of the Charlotte Tilbury Vintage Vamp Quad* as it's super easy to use and never fails to create an impressive look. After a few slicks on mascara or eyelashes if I'm feeling extra fancy, I then go in with lipstick. I've been using the By Terry Baume de Rose Crystalline Bottle* a lot recently when I want to turn any lipstick into a gloss, but the Charlotte Tilbury The Queen* has been my go-to for a statement look.
