Although the natural look is by far my favourite look, I must say I love a bit of sparkle come Christmas time!!
My staples stay the same: Clinique CC cream, and the new Universal Clinique Superprimer.
Then my absolute must have all year round but especially at this time of the year is YSL Touche éclat, I use shade no. 1, I must say I dont have a great deal of dark circles but this really makes my eyes appear brighter! I personally think is more of an highlighter than a concealer. I put a bit under my eyes, above the brow, under the chin and a bit on both side of my nosestrils then i pad with my fingers. The effect is beautiful!
On my eyes I love Chanel Illusion d' Ombre, the one I use is Ebloui. It is a burgundy/ brown shade with red undertones. It is a mousse eyeshadow, highly pigmented and it gives a beautiful effect!
I apply it with my fingers or with the supplied Chanel brush. To make sure it stays in place all day I usually wear a primer first.
I love Bourjois Effet Smoky Eyes Kayal, they are available in 5 shades, and they are perfect to achieve the smoky eye look! As for mascara I recently discovered Urban Decay Big Fatty , I must say I am amazed with the results! It gives me a real false lash effects! I also use Benefit and Max Factor mascaras which I also find very good for everyday wear, maybe when I dont need such a dramatic look.
I like a bit of colour on my cheeks so I am a fan of MAC mineralize blush in Dainty. It gives me a nice glowy look but still looks quite natural.
It wouldnt be Christmas without a red lippy!! I went for this year Chanel Rouge Velvet No.317 La Précieuse, I must admit I have not worn it yet as I am saving it for the holidays.. !! But the colour looks absolutely beautiful!!
I am also going to keep in my handbags my trusty Clinique Chubby sticks , I recommend no.5 Chunky Cherry! They are so easy to apply and a must when you are on the go, and they also moisturize the lips!
And last but not least of course Chanel Les Beiges healthy glow sheer powder, I went for no.30. I think it is an absolute must have for the holidays !!
