FOTD: Christmas

 This was actually worn on Christmas Eve. I get way too sleepy and rub my eyes on Christmas Day! Plus even the most long wearing lipstick won't fully survive the turkey onslaught and I don't fancy dragging a make up bag around with me.

I decided to go with some classic Christmas colours of red and gold. Always cheerful and pretty in my opinion.
Here are the ingredients:

The Body Shop Moisture Foundation in 03
The Body Shop All-In-One Face Base in 03
The Body Shop Lightening Touch Concealer in 03
Collection 2000 Illuminating Touch Concealer in Natural
e.l.f Blush in Twinkle Pink
I love that my Body Shop base is all 03. So much easier when it all matches!

MUA Single Eyeshadow in Shade 30
Rimmel Exaggerate Liquid Liner in Black
The Body Shop Super Volume Mascara in Black
I applied the MUA shadow with a slightly damp brush to get a more intense colour.

Nivea Extreme Resist Glossy in Joli Cherry
I have all four shades of these now and I absolutely swear by them. One of my top products of 2012 and only £1 each. I do feel that it leans a little pink - it's not a true red and I certainly wouldn't describe it as cherry red.

I hope you liked my Christmas look! Would love to see some links to what you wore for this season. 



  1. I've never tried any Body Shop makeup, is it good? The lip colour looks lovely on you! Hope you had a great day :)

    1. I swear by the base products, this is my second tube of foundation and I adore it. The shadows can be a bit hit and miss but they're having a new formula and adding new shades in the new year :) I've been promised some cool pastels.
      Thank you! X

  2. You're so pretty! I love your cheekbones, is that a weird thing to say?
    Anyway, you love lovely, hun :)

    1. Awwh thank you :) you wouldn't say that if you saw pictures of me taken by other people! Like tyra banks, I know my angles. (Terrible Americas next top model joke)
      Thank you! I actually really like my cheek bones too :) I got them from my mother. All I think about is how much better they'd look if I was thin. New years resolution. (Again. Sigh) Haha x

  3. Nice look)) I wore similar liner with silver and black colours. Very pretty face^^

    1. Thank you :) ooh that sounds really pretty! X

  4. I rarely make an effort on Christmas day! I always wake up super early regardless of age, dance around in my pjs andopen presents. Then its just food, films and family :)
    You look lovely here, love the lippy :)



    1. Best way to do it in my opinion ;) thank you! Its from pound land :o x
