Apologies for being away!

Apologies for being MIA as of late, I'm in the midst of moving into a house that has decided to turn against me and I'm currently without internet. As well as that my entire makeup/beauty collection is packed away nicely in a box somewhere out of reach! I've been living off the few products packed into a wash bag and makeup bag for the last week or so and it's a very narrowed down selection! But more on that soon. In the mean time I hope you are all enjoying the run up to Christmas!

Winter Makeup Bag

If ever there's a time to go a bit crazy with your makeup, the lead up to Christmas and New Years Eve is definitely it, it's definitely not the time for minimalism! I definitely like to take a more is more approach, especially when it comes to sparkle! Here's what I'll be stashing in my makeup bag!

I'll be using my Clinique Even Better Concealer in Honeycomb and Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl Kajal in Nude to brighten up the eye area as well as disguise any seasonally induced under eye circles. 

I find a good contour is essential with heavy eye makeup or a bold lip and Nars Bronzer Multiple in Malaysia is super easy to use, just swipe on and blend in. For highlighter I'll be upping the ante with my Sephora Illuminating Highlighting Powder in Golden, which is definitely one for the evenings.

For eyes I've dug out my Sephora Moonshadow Baked Palette in In the Dark which I picked up in America over the summer. It's full of shimmer packed shades that build up really well, the mix of darks, lights and brights means all outfits will be covered. I also couldn't resist the temptation to throw in L'Oreal Colour Infaillible Eyeshadow in Goldmine, purely for being the most shimmery gold shadow ever to have been created.

Everyone needs a red lipstick over christmas and mine is an ever so slightly darker than pillarbox red. It's Avon Colour Lipstick in Chilli which I'll be sporting with a slick of black gel eyeliner. 

What makeup will you be wearing this winter?

NOTD #17

As I change my nail varnish quite often Shellac has never really appealed to me that much, but when I saw my friend Jen last week she was rocking pillarbox red nails that were the glossiest I've ever seen! When she said they were shellac I was immediently curious and seeing as I had a voucher for my local salon, I thought I'd give it a go. 

I went for the shade Rubble by the official Shellac brand CND, which is a soft grey with a beigey undertone, quite similar to Chanel's popular shade particuliere. It's a great winter alternative to a classic nude and it goes with everything. I'm told it should last 2 - 3 weeks and so far so good! It would be a great option for before you go away on holiday.
