Holiday 2015 - Holiday FOTD (+ some tips for going from day to your party at night!)


I love a good old classic look for the holiday season, with just a smidge of sparkle. I tend to always fall back on this, despite my intentions to create some super fancy look, because it's easy and simple. Keep reading for my favourite products for achieving the perfect classic, holiday look, and some tips on taking your look from day to party at night!

For base, I'm using my Marc Jacobs primer + foundation duo (you can read my full review here), and some Armani Maestro concealer to brighten under my eyes. I've been obsessed with my Marc Jacobs #Instamarc lately for setting my foundation and contouring. I finish off my base with a light dusting of the Charlotte Tilbury blush in Love is the Drug.

For eyes, I've been loving the Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerize in Marie Antoinette all over the lid, with the darkest shade of the Becca Ombre Rouge palette in the crease. Add some winged liner (Tom Ford pen is the best!) and you've got a classic eye with a bit of subtle holiday sparkle. Finishing off the eyes with some Too Face Better Than Sex Mascara and my Armani Brow Maestro, two all time faves.

For lips, I've been using my absolute favourite Nudestix Lip + Cheek pencil in Mystic for daytime, then switching to their limited edition holiday red (from their Too Cute set) for evening.

During the holidays, we are often going from day to night for multiple parties and occasions. My top tips for amping up your look for the evening are:
1. Mattify the T-zone (I always keep my Urban Decay De-Slick compact in my handbag)
2. Highlight with a liquid highlighter (this itty bitty Becca liquid highlighter is perfect!)
3. Add a little volume to your hair (the travel-sized Bumble & bumble texturizer works great)
4. Re-apply that red lip! (I'm carrying my Nudestix Too Cute minis everywhere these days!)
