Christmas Party Look- Blogmas Day 2

Tis the season to be jolly, fa la la la la, la la la la 
(Still a little bit too early for the christmas songs? no? good!) 

With all of the holiday parties coming up, I thought I would show off a look that I have been wearing a lot recently. It is perfect for work do's and general christmas festivities! Side note- I have been loving this lipstick recently! I am not usually a dark lip person and much prefer to go with the safer neutral colours, but this has really made me feel more put together! 

 After applying Benefit Porefessional, I used Benefit Puff Off under my eyes to help reduce circles. This product is a god send! I got given it as a sample along with a purchase I made and have been using it ever since! If your the type of person who struggles in the under eye region then try and get a sample to try this out! It's seriously amazing!


Next I applied my Rimmel London Wake me up Foundation all over my face. This is the first foundation that I have tried that I feel truly rubs into my skin properly. I have dry skin and have always struggled to find a foundation that wouldn't look patchy but this product works wonders!


Then I use my Rimmel London Wake me up concealer under my eyes and on areas where I might have blemishes. I tap the product in with my finger under my eye first then use my Nanshy blending sponge to blend it into my foundation properly. I love this sponge. It works wonders and always washes out nicely after use!


To set my makeup I used my trusty Rimmel London Stay Matte powder. It's true what everybody says about this powder!


Next I used my Benefit Hoola bronzer as a contour and then along the high parts of my forehead and down my nose. I love how natural this bronzer looks on the skin. It always makes me feel like I have a little bit of colour, without feeling orange!


For the eyes I used the Rimmel London Kate eyeshadow pencil in Rose Gold. Since buying this product I hadn't really used it as I thought it was too Bronze rather than rose. After using it in this look I think I am going to have to get a lot more use out of it! It blends in perfectly to the eye and when rubbed in properly can look quite natural! For the crease I used the darkest colour out of my Fleur de Force Cosmic Bronze palette. I used my Real Techniques eye shadow brush to apply this. Finally I used the Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner.

Another new favourite of mine is the new Benefit Tinted lash primer. I got this as a sample in the most recent Elle magazine. It can be used as an eyelash primer, or alternatively on its own for a more neutral look. I have been wearing it under my They're real mascara and love the way it extends and holds my lashes that little bit more.





Then I applied my Beet lipliner by MAC. I filled in my lips slightly also to act as a base for the lipstick.




Finally I finished the look by applying Captive by MAC all over the lips. I am obsessed with this colour! 


Heres the final look altogether! Let me know what you think of the look down in the comments below!
