December Makeup

This post was so difficult to write, I feel like December is a difficult month to pin down what makeup I used as it involves lots of new makeup and so many party looks. Today I thought I would show you a look that is somewhere in the middle. There's a little bit of glitter but nothing too dramatic so without further ado I hope you enjoy.
Starting off I have the Clarins Instant light perfecting primer in 01, this is actually a little bit of a cheat product as I haven't been using it long however I know I'm going to be obsessed with it. It is a beautiful radiance primer however it isn't shimmery like so many others are. This just adds a beautiful dewiness to the skin and is perfect for any fellow dry skinned gals. Foundation wise again I've been reaching for my Bourjois Healthy mix serum a lot, this is just the best drugstore foundation I have found for my skin it sits beautifully and doesn't highlight any of the ridiculous amount of dry patches I currently have. Concealer wise for under my eyes I have been using the Bourjois Radiance reveal which is a really pretty light reflecting concealer and then on any redness and blemishes I've been using my trusty Clarins Instant light concealer. To add some colour I have as usual been using my Benefit Hoola bronzer I'm not going to go on about it again but if you are pale them you need this in your life.
I've actually been doing a little bit of contouring this month and I've been loving using the NYX HD blush in the shade Taupe which is one of my favourite shades of contour on my pale skin. Highlight wise I've been using a duo from L'Oreal first of I have been putting a little bit of the True match liquid highlight in Icy glow on top of the cheek bones and then I have been setting that all with a little bit of the powder in the same shade. Finally for my face I've been finishing it off with a little bit of the Soap and glory Peach party blush. Moving onto the eyes as usual I've been using the Urban Decay primer potion as per usual, then I've been using Illamasqua's Vital palette which is the perfect everyday matte palette. If I have been wanting a little bit of sparkle I have just been patting the Urban Decay Moondust shadow in cosmic all over the lid. Mascara wise I've been using the Soap and Glory Thick and fast extra collagen mascara.  
To finish of the look I've been using the Milani Amore lip cream in the shade Adorable which is just the most stunning nude shade which I am absolutely head over heels in love with and that's it. I really hope you guys enjoyed this post and I would love you to let me know in the comments what you have been using the most this month.


  1. I really liked this style of post & would love for you to make this a regular thing on your blog. I love the way you show us everything you use in a photo and then talk us through everything you used step-by-step too!

    The lip cream you used is adorable (pardon the pun) and really suits you!

    Keep up the great work chick!

  2. Loved reading this post. The Urban Decay eyeshadow is really pretty. The lip cream that you are wearing really suits you and flatters your skin tone.

  3. Hoola bronzer is one of my major favourites. I pretty much use it daily. Absolutely gorgeous lip colour as well, gorgeous makeup!

  4. Soap & Glory Peach Party is one of my all time favourite blushers. I actually tend to use it a lot more than some of my higher end products.
    Great post - I love how clear your photography is, also.
