So I attended Mike’s work christmas party on Friday evening, and you know me. I don’t just wing my looks, I plan them out, simply because I love fashion & beauty! Especially with a 6month belly bump, I wanted to make sure I wore a flattering outfit.

I picked a black dress, black coat & black shoes just because I was feeling it, and so decided to go with a smokey eye and a mauve-y nude lip. Nothing too ostentatious but enough definition and drama for a holiday party! The theme of the party was casino night!

So here are the products I used:

FACE

Too Faced Born This Way foundation

MAC Pro long wear concealer ( I loveee this stuff)

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer

Becca Highlighter in Opal

Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder

EYES

MAC Mauvement Pigment ( limited edition, but any somewhat sparkly mauve eyeshadow would do, just spray some fix plus or face mist to your brush then dip into the shadow and apply for more vibrancy)

Urban Decay Naked Palette, shade Naked – in the crease

Makeup Geek Eyeshadow, shade Cabin Fever – in the outer corner for definition

Estee Lauder Eye Kohl pencil smudged out on my upper lash line

Becca Highlighter in Opal to highlight my inner tear duct & brow bone

Anastasia Brow Wiz in Taupe

LIPS

Mac Subculture lipliner

Too Faced Matte Liquid lipstick in Queen B

Quick Tip: My skin has been really dry since it’s winter time so prior to applying my makeup I did a DIY facial scrub by mixing sugar with coconut oil to create a paste and then massaging it all over my face for about 30 -45 seconds then rinsing off with warm water. I then moisturised as usual and added Tatcha’s Camellia Beauty Oil over my moisturiser. It gave my skin a lovely glow and my foundation went on really smoothly! I loveeee this beauty oil! 

Happy Holidays ! X
