Tis' The Season To Be Berry...

Hi Guys, I am so excited that its getting even closer to Christmas oh I can't wait. I thought I would share with you all my go to December Christmas look, one which I haven't really been changing since November, apart from a couple eye shadow changes and some different lipsticks so here goes... I am also going to review a couple of the products I use in this post as well so keep your eyes wide open for them!

To start with I moisturised my skin with my Simples rich day moisturiser and left this to soak in for a couple of minutes. I then applied my L'Oreal Skin Perfection serum over the top, I like to use this as a primer, and it also helps to reduce the redness in my skin 2 in 1 I suppose. I got this product a couple of months ago and wanted to try and test it before I reviewed. So I purchased this probably at the beginning of October and have used it everyday and I mean everyday. I can notice the difference in my skin, the redness is reduced the texture of my skin is very soft and my complexion is pretty much perfect, one product which did not break me out.
After my L'Oreal serum I moved straight on to foundation, not giving the product time to sink in is a good thing sometimes. My foundation of choice at the moment is Mac Studio Fix Fluid NC15 a product you have all heard me rave on about for far too long, but a foundation with perfect coverage for the winter. I blend this onto my face with my Real Techniques expert face brush and then leave to dry for a little while.

After my cream based products I then powdered my face with my Rimmel stay matte powder, and moved swiftly onto my brows. I feel like I can't apply my eye shadow if my brows aren't done. So I use my Rimmel eyebrow pencil in dark brown to draw in my shape and outline and then use MAC Mystery eye shadow to fill in my eyebrows to darken them, as my brows are white.

After the brows were done I moved onto my eyes, I've been using cream shadows as bases during winter so my eyes aren't too drying. I have been loving the seventeen metallic shades, especially the metallic bronze coloured one, sorry the names rubbed off. I then use my naked 2 palette but switch up the colours i use to blend from the outer corner into the crease. Ive been really liking 'Blackout' blended into the gold shadow base for a real smoky eye! After my shadows are done, I then tend to add some mascara, and if its a night time occasion some false lashes.

My favourite mascara at the moment is Soap and Glory Thick and Fast, I really like the wand on this mascara, the thick bristles are perfect for my lashes at the moment, to give them the definition and volume they need throughout the day.

On to the cheeks, I've been loving my Nars blusher in Orgasm, so conventional and well loved by all, it is one product which I can honestly not live without in the make up world. I like to team this with Mac's Lightscapade mineralized skin finish, and a bit of Mac bronzer in Matte Bronze. If you wanted to swap these for high street products I recommend, Topshops Crescent Moon highlighter, Sleek Rose Gold Blush and any matte bronzer to contour and define those cheek bones.

I tend to switch up my lip colour quite a lot but in the photo I am wearing from the Gothic Collection at Collection shade number 2 Revenge, with a nude models lip pencil underneath. That tends to be the choice or my Mac Rebel, Mac Up the Amp or L'Oreal 332.
