Christmas Day Beauty Picks

My absolute favourite go-to makeup look is a dark smokey eye and a red lip, so when christmas rolls around and the party season begins, I am in my element! I realised the other day that I haven't done a beauty related post in quite a while so I thought I would share with you guys which products I'll be using on christmas day (and pretty much every party I attend over the coming month!)

NARS SHEER GLOW FOUNDATION/VICHY DERMABLEND FOUNDATION
I mentioned a while ago in my Vichy post that I really liked the effect of mixing these two foundations together. My skin is super dry right now and I found that the vichy foundation gave incredibly good coverage but was a bit too drying on my skin, whereas on the flip side the nars sheer glow feels very moisturising but the coverage isn't incredible, so mixing the two together creates my perfect foundation! 

COLLECTION LASTING PERFECTION CONCEALER
This is just a classic product that I'll probably never be without. The coverage of this concealer is incredible and it's probably one of the best drug store concealers out there!

SOAP AND GLORY ONE HECK OF A BLOT POWDER
I'm not really reaching for powder as much these days as my skin is currently being stripped of any oils by the skin treatment I'm on, but I do still like to do a light covering of powder just to keep my makeup in place and this is definitely the one I reach for the most! 

SLEEK FACE FORM PALETTE - LIGHT
On a day to day basis I'm incredibly lazy and don't really do anything to my cheeks in regards to bronzer/blusher, but given that it's christmas I figured I should probably make a bit more of an effort and the product I reach for is this. This contains a bronzer, blusher and highlight and comes in such wearable shades. Also I love the fact that it's three products rolled into one and I can just chuck it into my bag with no fuss!

URBAN DECAY PRIMER POTION
In my opinion, this is one of the best eyeshadow primers out there and if I'm doing a heavy eye look I cannot be without it. It makes your eyeshadow look flawless and lasts so much longer than many other primers I've tried!

URBAN DECAY NAKED 2 EYESHADOW PALETTE
I've spoke about this product so much on my blog that you're all probably sick and tired of it by now, I just love Urban Decay eyeshadows. I'll definitely be using the greys and blacks in this palette to create an intense smokey eye for christmas day!

SOAP AND GLORY SUPERCAT EYELINER
This is my go to eyeliner as I just find pens so easy to use. It is drying up a bit now though as I've literally used it to death so I think it's probably time to purchase a new one!

COLLECTION BROW KIT - BLONDE
I never do anything too crazy with my eyebrows so I find that this palette has everything I need. I mix the blonde and brown shade together and fill my eyebrows in with the brush that comes with the palette and I also use the eyebrow gel that comes with it to set them in place!

NYX LIQUID SUEDE LIPSTICK - CHERRY SKIES
It wouldn't be christmas without a red lip and this is currently my lip product of choice! Usually, I go for bright reds on christmas, but this year I'm definitely feeling the more dark purple/berry tones and this is just perfect. It dries matte so it's probably one of the better options to wear if I'm going to be doing a lot of eating and drinking!

What's your go to christmas makeup look?
