christmas eve

Merry Christmas Eve! Hope you have all had the most fantastic day so far filled with, food, laughter, happiness and more food ;) Our Christmas got off to an interesting start with a panic of no turkey order yesterday followed by a broken down fridge this morning. Needless to say my relaxed pamper routine ahead of Christmas Eve lunch was postponed and instead turned into a 10 minute rush of throwing makeup on my face!

Needless to say I took a quick snap to share with you guys – it’s tradition! Starting with one of my favourite bases from the year the Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturiser was called to action for a hydrating base that covers any redness. I then added some warmth to my skin with the YSL Le Teint Saharienne and a spot of contour from the Charlotte Tilbury great Filmstar Bronze & Glow. Those rosy cheeks came from my Hourglass love the Ambient Lighting Blusher in Luminous Flush and a wash of colour across the lid was courtesy of the Burberry Nude Shadow.

I went with a spot of liner to help define my eyes with the Tom Ford Eye Defining Pen and lashings of mascara with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. Finally, a red lip, it had to be done, and this years classic was down to the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella. I even managed to add a few curls through my hair, done a festive red dress and head out the door within a record speed. Santa would have been impressed ;)
