Festive Makeup Favourites

Some products I will look at this and instantly think Christmas, but some are a subtle hint of festivity. This post is a mix of both, some will scream Christmas and others not as much. I have put together a few of my favourite Christmas products, here they are!

Bourjois 3D Effect Lip Gloss in 06 Rouge Democratic
This is clearly a very festive lip colour. It's a bold red with a little but of shimmer. When it's is applied it isn't as bold but more of a wash or red, but it's definitely buildable. I love this at Christmas as red is just such a festive colour!

No7 Highlighter
I don't know why but I always associate sparkle and shimmer with Christmas, which is why I have chosen this gorgeous highlighter from No7. It's a very glittery highlighter and not for a subtle glow kind of person. This product would be gorgeous for a Christmas party!

M.A.C Lipstick in Speak Louder
Typically, Christmas would be a bold red lip kind of situation, but I think a deep pink would also be a nice different alternative. I have the shade Speak Louder which is a gorgeous bold pink but is still very wearable without being to bright. I will definitely be wearing this to Christmas Parties coming up!

Barry M Glamour Puss Palette
Once again, more shimmer! These colours a very different to what I would usually wear, there are some olive tones and also a purple shade! But the main reason I picked this was for the shimmery colours, I think they could make a gorgeous smokey eye! You wouldn't normally think of Christmas when you see this but I think it could work nicely!

Revlon Laquer Balm in Demure
The last product I have chosen is a pinky nude lip crayon with a subtle hint of glitter. Aside from reds and bold lips, I think it's nice to have a nude option! I really like this lip crayon as i would describe it as having a lustre finish (like the MAC lipsticks haha!) Which means it looks really natural and pretty.

So that is all my Christmassy products I have chosen! I hope you enjoyed this blog post and thanks for reading!
