Christmas Hair And Make Up

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 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.

    Definitely not my area of expertise, but I have sent the link to my darling wife and doubtless, if she follows this, she’ll be totally gorgeous at Christmas. Of course, she is totally gorgeous all of the time.
