Today as part of my attempt to complete Blogmas; a post a day from 1 December until Christmas I thought I’d talk about Christmas hair and make up. By no means am I a beauty and hair expert but here are a few of my favourite party picks.
1 Urban Decay Naked Smokey Eye Palette
I just adore the naked range of eye shadows by Urban decay. The Naked Smokey palette has to be my go to palette for nights out. I admit I struggle to do a stunning smokey eye but even I can get the smokey eye effects with these perfectly coordinating colours. There is the typical grey smokey colours but also a lovely selection of brown and gold tones.
2 Benefit BrowZing
Next up is the benefits Brow Zing palette. I really am not a fan of overly penciled eye brows and in my 40s I can say I am not of an age where they would suit me either. I much prefer a subtle natural look and I find this palette achieves just that. You can find me review of this palette here.
3 Boots No7 Extreme Length Mascara
I’ve always used Boots NO7 range when it comes to mascaras. I like them so I stick with what I know.
3 Mac Lipstick In ‘Brave’
I just adore this colour lipstick and I find Mac lipsticks wear quite well too.
4 Urban Decay Lipstick In ‘Tampered’
If I feel like a darker shade lipstick I tend to pick Tampered by Urban Decay. Again, I love how the lipstick lasts.
5 Christmas Party Hair
At Christmas your hair just has to shine. Last month I was invited to a bloggers evening at Rush Hair in Birmingham where we were treated to some Christmas party hair styles and tips.
I absolutely adored the curls which is something I a) don’t have time to do and b) really struggle to do on my own hair with a set of straighteners.
I do have a curling wand and I think its time it came out more often this Christmas. In fact, I may just use it on normal day to day activity days as I loved how my hair looked so much.
Now I just have to recreate this Christmas hair and make up look at home and off to the party I go! Alternatively, I’ll be back to Rush Hair for some pampering and a festive hair do.
*Rush hair have 84 salons around the country. At the bloggers evening at Rush Hair I was treated along with other #BrumBloggers to a festive hair style and drinks and nibbles. All views are my own.
